Has the Israeli government been justified in building the Security Barrier/Separation Wall?

In 2002, Israeli Prime Minister Ariel Sharon announced that a separation barrier would be built between Israel-proper and the Palestinian West Bank. This has now become a permanent feature. Has this barrier been justified because it prevents Palestinian terrorism and saves Israeli lives? Or is it unjustified because it is merely a strategy used to cage and control the Palestinian population while seizing more of their land?
