'Awarta, Beit Furik, Burin (Yitzhar), Huwwara, Za'tara (Tapuah), Tue 21.4.09, Afternoon
14 cars from north to south go through with practically no checking. A large group of settlers at the hitching post.
13.55 Burin crossroads. In the direction of Yitzhar stands an army car. The checkpoint is not manned.
14.10 Awarta. Cars go through without being checked.
14.20 Beit Furik. Parachutists man the post. The traffic goes through with no lines. The parking lot is empty.
Parachutiss. A short line. A wait of about 15-20 minutes. Now and again one of the men is asked to do the "dance."
But it is worthy of notice that today no screaming of the military police was heard and everything was done quietly. The cage is open. In a conversation of Riva with the military police commander U. who speaks politely she tells him that there is a difference today because there is no shouting.
The line of cars goes through within about 2-3 minutes.
A day without problems but all the same one of the passersby asked us if we were enjoying the occupation.
15.50 A bus stops at the entrance to the checkpoint and all the passengers alight and go through on foot.
We did not understand what was happening and in the end the bus turned around and did not enter Nablus.
16.15 We left Huwwara and a short line of 15 people.
The army car at Burin has left.
16.45 Za'tara. 5 cars. The settlers of the afternoon have disappeared. They found their lieft.
