'Anabta, Ar-Ras, Thu 25.10.07, Morning
At the exit from Tulkarm isa lineof 10s of cars and maybe more. One minute after we arrived all cars were let through without being checked and within two minutes the checkpoint was empty of cars. I do not know what is more frustrating….to think that maybe our arrival caused this with the soldiers wanting us to see that all is well or that it is sheer arbitrariness.
On the way back we see Anabta is also almost empty.
A-Ras 9.45 .
The checkpoint is empty except for soldiers and the flag.
