Bethlehem, Fri 26.11.10, Morning
Bethlehem– Checkpoint 300: only two stations open, long lines and loud voices heard from the Palestinian side.
Phone calls to the Humanitarian Centre to ask for 2 more stations to open, but nothing happens.
All the same, the soldiers on duty work quietly and courtesously, and within a short while the lines disappear. Palestinians emerge one by one, and no line forms on the Israeli side.
