Abu Dis, Container (Wadi Nar), Ras Abu Sbitan (Olive Terminal), Sheikh Saed, Mon 3.11.08, Morning
After the experience we had last week with the bringing back of olives from the other side into Jerusalem we wanted to check on the situation. Well nothing has improved. The soldiers never heard about the bringing in of 40 kg. of olives a day and they give everyone a hard time to pass with the olives they picked. All ourr arguments were complitly disregarded.
We called Uri Mandes who is in charge of the Jerusalem enveloping DCO. I told him about last week and this week and he promised to try and clarify the whole topic. I will call him again, since he never got back to me and the olive picking season is so short.
A man by the name of Zeev who volentiers to assist the soldiers was manning the CP. He was full of very conservative intentions, and gave us a whole lecture as to why we should not be there and certainly not bring foreigners along.
