The wall

French Foreign Minister Phillippe Douste-Blazy (of the recent "Iran is a stabilizing force in the region") fame has recently said that he has changed his (previously negative) opinion of Israel's separation barrier after realizing that it works pretty well.

I am all for people changing their minds when new evidence becomes available, but I must admit that for a second I had a rather mean thought along the lines of "hey, the guy wants to have a separation barrier between Paris and certain suburbs and would like to learn from Israeli experience".
