Bethlehem (300), Fri 9.3.12, Morning
09.10 – 10.50 AM
Bethlehem - Checkpoint 300: four inspection stations are open and there is no queue.
A man with two small children and a work permit is not allowed to enter; all the rest pass through without any delay. The male and female soldiers who are in new inspection stations, have just completed their basic training. A Druze security man is surprised and pleased to see Jewish-Israeli activity, and shares his thoughts with me. It was interesting.
Two Eucomenian volunteers who pass through tell me that yesterday was difficult but this morning there are no delays.
