"I need to catch a Palestinian car". The commander told us and hurried to return to the post and ordered the soldier to stop every cab that passed by. The line of cabs grew long, the identity of the drivers was inspected, one cab after another and another, waiting in a long line and blocking the main road on that busy hour, and once again the time of hundreds of people was expropriated by force."

Originally the checkpoint was designed to prevent Israeli drivers (strictly them!) from arriving at Qalandiya and Ramallah and sometime used also to regulate the traffic on road 60 so as to ease the congestion on the road for the settlers, but the checkpoint is also used to train paratroopers. "New soldiers", one of the seniors called them. The ones in training stood on the opposite side of the checkpoint and stop vehicles, they took the passengers out, checked their registrations, rummaged through the vehicle and went on to the next vehicle.
