Morning

07:00  am, Bethlehem - Checkpoint 300: two positions are open.  There is almost no line.  According to the Palestinians, today is fine.

07:30  am, Hussan: a man told us that for the last eight years he has been prevented from working.  "There is no respect for a man who doesn't work, even from his children" he said, with tears in his eyes.

08:00  am, Beit Ummar: we dealt with a number of requests.

We drove south to Kiryat Arba.  Near the road construction of the neighbourhood of Nofei Mamre is in progress -- no sign of a freeze in the area.

08:00  am, Nabi Yunis: people approach us with police problems.  To some we gave vouchers; for others, we checked problems.  Our travelling office in action.  On our way back we stopped at the Gush Ezyon intersection.  Large posters scream:

   

    Rami Levi is good for Arabs

    Good for Bethlehem merchants

    Good for buyers from Halhul

    What about your daughter?

    You don't want a grandchild called Ahmed.
