, Beit Furik, Huwwara, Za'tara (Tapuah), Tue 23.12.08, Afternoon
Za'atra. 14.00. 21 cars from north to south.
Beit Furik. The checkpoint is open, cars pass freely and the soldiers sit in the booth.
Three checking posts and a humanitarian. Nothing of note happening except for our argument with the soldiers who ask us to leave the checkpoint and stand at the side next to the turnstile entering Nablus from where we can see nothing. We refuse and asked to see such an order in writing which they did not have.
The soldier called in an army photographer who photographed us.
I think we have to think about this matter as in the end we will not be allowed to stand there and then there is no point in our prescence.
