SHAN Hai Guan is where he Chinese wall meets the ocean
and the uselessness of building a wall as protection from
thoughts, cultures and new ideas to enter into the soul of
humanity, comes to a halt. We saw that in in Berlin, we see
new walls hastily built in Palestine, where Israel- ruled by
opportunists - tries to keep the truth out. Walls are porous,
and anyway they can´t stop the great inequity that befell
One cannot build walls across seas, and we can´t stop walls
shielding lies. If we shout long enough walls in Israel will fall
as Jericho’s walls did and the rightful owner of the land of
Palestine will win through.
