First lady Laura Bush criticized Israel’s plans to build a fence along the border with the West Bank. “I don’t think a fence will be some long-lasting sign of peace,” she said Monday in a radio interview. “Right now, there is a huge barrier of hate and distrust between all the parties in the Middle East. I hope they can tear that barrier down.”
