Beit Iba, Shave Shomron  Shave Shomron.09:00  A new checkpoint opens the road between Jenin and Nablus; there’s little traffic.  The soldiers we met asked us to get out of the car to talk about the political situation.  They thirsted for a discussion. Beit Iba.09:20  The commander immediately asked us to speak only to him, not to the soldiers.  Afterwards he started talking politics with us.  He’s from Nir Etzion, a cooperative moshav affiliated with Meimad, but voted “Jewish Home.” Light pedestrian traffic.  Entry to Nablus is unrestricted; people leaving are inspected in two lanes, one of them the humanitarian lane.
