Slate's international papers sections summarizes the main articles and editorials in papers around the world. The latest edition notes,

In the aftermath of Sunday's Tel Aviv bombing that killed one Israeli, Oslo's Aftenposten noted that the security barrier cannot prevent all attacks. "This is not the first time in history that a land has tried to protect itself from enemies with a physical barrier. These attempts have not lived up to their expectations."

Perhaps the barrier did not prevent this attack because four-fifth of it have not been constructed? Just a thought.

The motivation for a fence is simple: there is already a fence around the Gaza strip and not a single suicide bomber from Gaza has carried out a bombing in Israel in recent years.
