Abu Dis, Container (Wadi Nar), Sheikh Saed, Mon 3.3.08, Morning
We arrived around 7a.m. and found the place almost deserted. All the cars just went by, none were stopped and the B.P. soldiers were very relaxed and friendly, including DCO officer called A. He tried to explain to us how intricate a check point Wadi Na'ar is. It was so quiet we thought may be there is a closure because of the fighting in Gaza.
Getting there we had to go back to Jerusalem and to Ras el Amud. We went into east Jerusalem with some aprihension anticipating
Some stone throuwing and rioting youngsters, but it apparently began after we drove though east Jerusalem. Sheich Saed also seemed deserted and only when we drove back to Zur Baher up the hill and a lot of teenage boys were on the road I thought that the potential for violence was very real.
