At noon we go through the Sansana crossing.  The lot is filled with cars.

Route 60

is also full of cars, most with Palestinian license plates.

Israeli flags fly from every electric pole all along the road in honor Israel’s upcoming Independence Day.  The residents of the towns and villages in the area – Dura, Dahariyya, Hebron, Samu’a, Siniyya, etc.- will undoubtedly be happy to see the flags waving proudly.

We travelled around for three hours on a beautiful, warm day, through a green landscape dotted with flocks of sheep.


Children in Hebron are home from school, many of them playing or wandering around the streets and alleys.  The Hebron salient is quiet.  So now, everything can continue.  People can shut their eyes to the Made-in-Israel injustice.  Will we ever put an end to the Occupation?
