'Anata, Abu Dis, Container (Wadi Nar), Mon 28.4.08, Morning
6:30 We drive down to Anatta- as always the place is packed , only this time there are many more buses for children. The parking lot is crowded and the machsom moves fast. We look around, talk to some people including Gamal from the local citizens councel, but even he has nothing special to report.
A lot of taxis are being held up. It takes quit a while to for them to get their I.D. cards checked and returned. There are three girl soldiers there with sniffing dogs, whom they let into some of the yellow minibuses to sniff around. We wonder whether they have some supicion or are just practicing with the dogs.
The Atmosphere is a bit tense, but in the end after a considerable wait of up to an hour and a few detainies who are ultimatly let go, back to their village, all are gone, and so are we.
