Is the Israeli West Bank barrier a good model for the Mexico US wall?

    No.

    First, that barrier is much shorter than the U.S.-Mexico border.

    Second, using the wall to prevent suicide bombings is probably a big part of why Palestinians starting using rocket attacks instead.

    In other words, a wall won't stop someone from doing what they have decided to do. It will just make them do it in a way that hurts you more.

    Yes. Excellent because it shows how futile walls like that are. The Berlin Wall is another good example of futility.

    yes. It has been working for Israel. But the US will still have to patrol the border.
