'Anata, Abu Dis, Container (Wadi Nar), Mon 17.3.08, Morning
The traffic is massive , mostly workers, the pupils come after 7:15. Some elderly women with no proper permit or blue I.D. are sent back. My intervention does not help even though the two officers on duty are very pleasent and keeping it all calm.
One BP soldier who got nervous because a 6 year old boy touched his gun was immidiately calmed down by both the officer and us. It all runs fast and uneventful, despite last nights wild attacks in Jebel Mukaber.
I decided to avoid Jebel Mukaber today and therefor did not go to Sheich Saed. At about 8:00 am we drive to Wadi Nar where things are very smooth and no one is being detained or stopped. Some cars are being looked into and that is it. There is almost a friendly atmosphere.....
