Bethlehem, Fri 7.3.08, Morning
The morning after the attack at the Yeshiva Mercaz HaRav
8:44 A guard from the Ari Shptrel company was at the parking lot. He asked where we were going and told us that the terminal was closed. The checkpoint was in fact completely empty, as one could expect. The soldier in the both told us that only people who work at the church or hospital may pass- a total closure. The only ones passing to Bethlehem were three Palestinian women, two men and a small group of tourists.
9:20 We left.
