08:50 - 10:10 AM, Bethlehem - Checkpoint 300:  like a week ago: almost noPalestinians. From the other side there is also no sign of life. Almost theonly transients are tourists. Groups come in both directions, apparentlybecause of the approach of Easter. According to the radio announcement, onlymen over 50 may pass, and women. In practice Palestinians are not coming. Oneman passed, 40 year old but with a blue identity card.
