Bethlehem, Fri 10.6.11, Morning

Bethlehem– Checkpoint 300:   for some reason the parking lot is closed and a  sign states “For military vehicles only”. There are only two vehicles there . . .  

Two inspection stations are open. The officer who is walking about in the checkpoint “doesn’t understand what I am doing here” and he is sure that I should stand outside. After he checks over the telphone , he gives up on the argument with me.

There are no queues and no case where someone is not allowed to pass. Although one of the female soldiers is inclined to shout, the people pass through and no-one turns to us to complain.

Today no-one comes with children.
