Bethlehem (300)

Clair Oren, Translation: Naomi Gal


This week, as well, there are more people prevented than usual, but less than two weeks ago.

Again Palestinians, used to pass with no problem, arrive and discover that GSS decided to change their plans for the weekend.

A man about 45 years old discovers he is not allowed to pass on Friday. He can pass all weekdays, as explain to him the soldier and the security guard, but not on Friday. He doesn’t understand why and is positive it can be sorted out and he’ll be able to pass since he has an appointment in Nazareth, but to no avail.

Too crowded, only 2 windows are open, a queue forms time and again, and there is no one to talk to about opening another window.

A group is crossing over to Bethlehem.

Two European activists arrive from there and are very excited to see my tag; they want to hear about MhasomWatch.
