New Israeli crossings hurt Palestinian trade: World Bank

A Palestinian boy watches the construction of the controversial Israeli barrier at the Shuafat refugee camp in the West Bank near Jerusalem November 3, 2008.

A new network of crossing points for Palestinian goods, built into Israel's barrier in and around the occupied West Bank, may hurt exports, not facilitate them as Israel claims, the World Bank said on Monday.

I have to tell ya, those "experts" at the World Bank never cease to dazzle me with their brillance. They finally figured out that concrete walls completely enclosing a city might interfere with anyone and anything trying to enter and exit. Would someone please give these folks a cigar???
