Since the lines were drawn over 50 years ago, the borders of Israel have been intensely contested. With the construction of a wall in the Palestinian territories, a new border is being created. The Israeli government says they are building the wall for security reasons, but many Palestinians and human rights groups declare it is a violation of their civil liberties. On this edition of Making Contact, we examine the impact of the current border conflict on Palestinian sovereignty.
