'Anata, Abu Dis, Sheikh Saed, Mon 14.4.08, Morning
It is even more fortified then it was last week. Hard to believe but it is.
A small group of men stands very quitly and very orderly in line and wait to come through. If they don't they won't be called forward to pass. The children go undisturbed but the age they are asked to show a paper seems to be going down. the men watching the C.P. all seem to be from a private guarding company. Only one BP.
We stay for a while and then decide to try and get to Anata from Kfar Adumim.
But you can drive this way to Ramalla , not to Anata, all the existing roads are blocked. We finally get to Anata, by driving all around, but since it is almost 8 A.M. ther is hardly a person left to come in. All the traffic is between 5-7 AM.
