Hebron area

I note the date and think, almost 50 years of occupation.  We’ve all become used to it, grown thick-skinned, as if things have to be this way.

Short shift today, so I didn’t reach Hebron.

But here’s what I saw nevertheless:

A checkpoint at the exit from Dahariyya to Highway 60:

Additional construction at the Othniel settlement (an appropriate Zionist response to Dafna’s horrible murder)

No children were throwing stones at al-Fawwar junction.  The pillbox was there, and the sheep.

A new bus stop on Highway 317, at the turn to the Metzudat Yehuda checkpoint.  Netivei Yisrael is repaving all the roads in the area.  You should know where your money goes…

On another bus stop we found this painting – as though the occupation didn’t exist.

No, the despair isn’t becoming any easier.
