Seriously? Does this make us safer?

Azzun Atma – 06:00.  A long line, approximately 150 people

The laborers put down large bundles of food, etc., before getting on line.  After their documents are inspected at the window they collect their belongings for inspection by the MP at the exit.

Two inspection windows open, but crossing goes slowly.

The Hansen CO. laborers are changing shifts. The Hansen plant is located west to the green line.   

Next to the inspection area there is a row of helmets on the ground.


06:30 – The line begins to shorten; it’s now half as long.

A laborer is detained; some phone calls and he’s released a few minutes later.


07:30  Habla– The line isn’t very long; it includes a few cars.

The big gate is closed; here’s the procedure when cars go through:  A Palestinian with a car who wishes to enter Habla walks into the inspection building with his ID card.  He exits, and on his wayback to the car leaves his ID with the MP at the entrance.  He himself opens the big gate, drives the car through.  The MP inspects the documents and the car’s interior.  Then the Palestinian is allowed to enter his village.


We went through the Eliyahu crossing in order to see the “park.”  There was a short line of laborers and a few cars being inspected.  We were stopped, asked whence and whither
