Morning

We arrived somewhat late towards 06:00. Everything was "as usual" – the turnstiles opened, the Palestinians in the cages were hurrying forward – and again, for the thousandth  time – a shameful and humiliating scene. The guests were shocked and outraged – also nothing new.

9:30 – And then something unexpected happened – a pipe bomb appeared in front of me in the vehicle passage. The area was cleared, the sappers were summoned and a man was arrested. We left before they exploded the bomb fearing that we might get caught in a huge traffic jam.
