 10.30 Checkpoint  Irtah/Sha’ar Ephraim.Border police, company security workers, soldiers. Most of the movement is that of cars with Israeli license plates which are returning to Israel.Not much traffic anywhere. When we photographed the checkpoint a whole circus started. They came, shouted, papers, delete it, IDs, show us, delete it all, who are you anyhow? A group of vulgar and violent young men drunk with their own power. There was no one to speak to. We began the shift with a difficult feeling of violence and unnecessary humiliation.
