Beit Ummar, Bethlehem, Nabi Yunis, Mon 26.7.10, 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.
