Beit Iba, Jit, Wed 17.9.08, Morning
07:35 - The easing of restrictions in honour of the Ramadan is still in effect. Pedestrians entering Nablus are not being checked. Buses too are searched perfunctory and their passengers do not disembark.
At the exit from Nablus the check is routine - belts off and the crossing is through the metal-detector.
Jit Junction - there are no checkpoints.
Shvut Ami - without change - the house that used to be an unauthorized outpost is still forsaken, without windows or doors. Across the road we saw two men among camping gear and a banner saying "Shvut Ami" (The Return of my People).
