A Bit of West Bank Lock-Down

Today, Kim and I left for a meeting in Jerusalem. Normally this would mean a 15 shekel, hour ride in a Service (Shared Van-ride) from Hebron to the Old City. But today, two days after the bombing, it involved one taxi, a climb over a dirt and rock pile, and two vans to get to Jerusalem. We were also stopped and had ID's checked twice. The Israelis have closed all the access points to the Palestinian towns and villages as punishment for the bombings. Interestingly enough, this generates more business for all the taxi and Service drivers in town.
