On June 1, 2001 a Palestinian named Saeed Hotari was standing in line outside a Tel Aviv discotheque called the Dolphinarium. Along with several hundred, mainly new immigrant youths from Russia, he seemed like just another kid waiting to have a good time on a Friday night. Unfortunately that wasn’t the case. According to survivors of the horrific blast that killed 21 and injured 132 people, Hotari was seen banging on a drum loaded with explosives and ball bearings just prior to detonation.
As a result of this and other incessant terrorist bombings against Israeli civilians, a grassroots organization called “Fence for Life” began petitioning the Israeli government to create a continuous fence between Palestinian population centers and the Jewish population.
