In the case of Israel, the necessity for checkpoints has been created by the Palestinians.

The checkpoints are an inconvenience to innocent Palestinians, but they save lives.

Never mind the state it's in as I tidy everything up prior to publication. Don't let good material go to waste - and so much does. In the interests of the environment we should always try to re-cycle everything, especially jokes. You know that makes sense! You may find some historical stuff here, but this does not really matter as humor is fairly timeless.
