"Vrijheid voor Palestine" means "Freedom for Palestine" in Dutch.

When the Separation Wall will be built here, the village of Wallajeh is going to be separated from all its agricultural land. On some of these lands, contractors are planning to build a settlement which would connect Jerusalem with the Gush Etzion settlement block, thus putting a big nail in the coffin of the two state solution. Moreover, the Separation Wall will surround the village from three sides.

Despite denials, there seems to be delays and hesitations among the Israeli government to complete the Wall in the southern West Bank (see Haaretz July 15, 2009: “West Bank Fence Not Done And Never Will Be, It Seems”). Human rights actions and publicity may help to stop the further building of the Wall, as indicated in an OCHA report published in May 2009 (“Shrinking Space: Urban Contraction and Rural Fragmentation in the Bethlehem Governorate”).
