The wall. East Jerusalem is not almost entirely separated from the rest of the West Bank by the wall. And it IS a wall. The Israelis prefer us to call it 'the separation barrier', but where most people see it it is a wall. It is a fence mostly out in unpopulated areas. Many Israelis also hate this wall - they say it cuts them off from Biblical Israel.
A watchtower on the, er, wall."
