Bethlehem  

 

 

09:15 to 11:00

Two windows are open; later on they opened two more. A lot of people are passing but at least three were rejected. Their documents were taken from them and they were ordered to wait. After a good while each one of them was told that he is prevented from entering Israel.

The security guard did not know Machsomwatch and was furious when I asked why people wait so long. When the senior police officer who knows us came out the guard realized he had no case and relaxed.

An ecumenical volunteer was present.

Despite the wait, many people, especially women, came out greeting, smiling and thanking MW for its presence.
