Qalandiya, Sun 26.7.09, Morning
6 :00 we set out for Qalandiya. Getting there we see very few people going through fast. Three lanes are open but are most of the time empty. We speak to some of the workers who say it is now this way all the time. I think the fact that there are no children going to school and the CP is open from three in the morning makes all the difference. Has our film helped? The DCO has a huge billboard up front giving information about old and new services supposedly provided by the CP or DCO, like a post office , interior ministry rep. a police station etc. But what I found interesting was a day a month, the first Thuresday each month when information about job possibilities , work in Jerusalem or the vicinity might be found . The filth all around the terminal and inside is stagering, will there ever be a cleaner place for the Palestiniens to come into Israel? Here at least they can bring any food they wish.
