The story of people who were  scared to be  filmed.

The Zion route is full of garages which are burning the chometz of the settlers’ cars. They are angry at the plans to build a checkpoint which will cost 5 million shekel and will force the Palestinians  to take roundabout routes and also takes away their livelihood for a year.

Groups of Indonesian Christians enter the Cave of the Patriarchs at the Jewish entrance. There are three such groups and TIPH volunteers guard them and promise that they will keep an eye open during the holiday.

Other Palestinians tell us that  they will stay at home during the holiday.

Yehuda Shaul of Breaking the Silence is taking a tour.

or a little over an hour  at 4.00 a woman is  detained at the checkpoint of the curve as there is a problem with her ID.

The holiday of freedom...
