Morning

Prophet Muhammad's 1448th birthday

We left especially late so as to be at 12 near the school and the garden across the street to see what was going on there with the clashes between Ofer Ohana and the Palestinian inhabitants.

|ut it  turned out that today was a holiday due to the prophet's birthday. So we went to see the site of the event at the entrance of the Muslims to the Tomb of the Patriarchs, the  Ibrahimia Mosque as it is called in Arabic.

Very very Crowded.

We thought that with as this is Muslim holiday they would open the partition and they could pray in the part allotted to the Jews, as is the case with a Jewish holiday, because crowds come from all over the West Bank on such a day.

And of course it was not.

Everyone is on vacation and is forced to crowd into a small space. Why ?

The army says they do not have permission to open. Only on Wednesday after the holiday, after everyone returns to normal, will the Jewish hall open for them? Why? To the God of conquest and fantasy are the  solutions.

The Palestinians think that the Palestinian Authority is involved in this decision. In their eyes, this is an internal problem, and their anger emerges from between the words.

 On Route 60, an army barricade at the Sheep Junction but in all the other places is open and flowing.
