There’s heavier traffic than usual on Highway 5.  Many military vehicles.  Apparently as a result of the murder in Barkan.

Military jeeps parked at a number of locations on the way down to the Jordan Valley.

An ordinary hot day.  Shepherds graze their flocks along the roadside.  Everything’s very dry; the flocks have no reason to be pleased it isn’t raining.  Fodder must be purchased at times like this.  With money that’s in very short supply.

My car is filled with goods for three families.  I distribute as needed.  The children ask for a soccer ball and bicycles.  They gladly accept everything else.  Morning coffee with one family, tea with a second, a conversation at the home of a third including a guest of theirs, a Palestinian Israeli who also visits them to help as he can.  The conversation makes obvious the growing fears of Israeli Ara bs about Israel’s nationalistic policy.  “Allah yustor” – may God help us.

But today is quiet.  They’ll wait until tomorrow to come disrupt life in Hadidya.  Today they still know nothing.
