Certainly the building of walls in the Middle East is a sign of the
decay of civilization.
But, surely, we Christians know better? The Lord Jesus said, "He who is
not with me is against me." Surely the priest, or the Levite, as well
as the Samaritan, would have gone to the aid of the man on the road to
Jericho, if they had come along when the thieves were attacking him? If
a neighbor is wronged, one must go to his aid, even if he is a gentile.
Even the gentiles know this: the French advocate fraternité, the
workers solidarity, the League of Nations collective security. The
Christians, surely, righteousness?
