My own sense of The Wall is that it resembles a prison wall:  It is encompassing,  people venturing near it risk the danger of being shot to death as there are prescribed ways in and out of the encirclement,  there are coils or razor wire strewn about a no man's land close to the wall.  There are gun towers for guards to oversee the perimeter and to occasionally shoot to death individuals for no discernable reason but to strike general fear and unease in the Palestinian population (a la Shindler's List).

FYI for future planning.  I've been researching the Ghettos and walls around them the Nazis created, and obviously the Warsaw Ghetto is the most famous because of the uprising (intifada) waged by hundreds of its imprisoned inhabitants.  Clearly there are parallels with Israel's building of the Hafrada Wall.  This November 15th marks the anniversary of the Jewish ghetto in Warsaw sealed off by a wall considered high in those times, but only half the height of Israel's wall around Palestinians.
It might be a good date for demonstrations, rallies, educational efforts, etc.
