News It’s Hard to Imagine a More Powerful Metaphor Than Building a Fence.

Oh, here’s one: Knocking it down.
Today’s big story in the NYT stars Hamas knocking down an Israeli-built border fence between Gaza and Egypt that had cut Palestinians off from essential supplies.
The history-making quote, in my opinion, is here:
People began pouring over the fence before dawn, said one witness, Fatan Hessin, 45. She had crossed into Egypt to be reunited with a childhood friend. “I am not Hamas or Fatah, but I thank Hamas for this,” she said.
