At each of these places I delivered and received papers on police matters. On Route 60, at the side of the road, here or there people standing with two or three boxes of fruit waiting for a taxi to stop and take them on to their destination. A few donkeys also carrying boxes of fruit on their way home. It is to be assumed, like every summer, a lot of fruit will go to waste because of the difficulties of transport and marketing.
Like every week, at the bus stops and on the fences along the road new ads which the spirited among the settlers produce endlessly. This week in honour of the end of month of Av all are called on to march from Nablus to Jericho, and in order to strengthen the message a photo of the father of the settlements, Zvi Yehuda Kook, and a few of his famous quotes;
"Where is our Hebron?"
"Where is Nablus?"
