Lastly, there is Crossing Qalandiya: Exchanges across the Israeli/Palestinian
Divide, by Daniela Norris and Shireen Anabtawi. The two women are members of
opposing communities: Norris is a nonpractising Jewish Israeli and Anabtawi a
practising Muslim and Palestinian Arab. Qalandiya is an important checkpoint run
by the Israeli security forces outside the central Palestinian town of Ramallah: it is
a dismal place with which most Palestinians are unfortunately familiar.

(Promotion for letters between authors Shireen Anabtawi and Daniela Norris, a
Palestinian and Israeli who co-authored a book about their exchange of letters
entitled Crossing Qalandiya 'a beacon of hope in the wilderness of the Israeli/
Palestinian conflict'.) β€’ Women are not created weaker but more generous than
men. They are created more beautiful and less fierce, as beauty hates to hurt and
harm others. That is why they seem weak to people, but in reality they are not.

The most logical way to enter the territory from Israel is to use the Qalandiya
border crossing located just outside East Jerusalem. The cheapest way to get in
involves taking a service taxi to Qalandiya from East Jerusalem, traversing the
crossing on foot (often quicker than driving across) before catching another
service taxi on the other side to reach your final destination. There are also
several Palestinian car-hire companies located in EastJerusalem that can rent
you a vehicle with an ...

Taha, a Ramallah-based writer, constructs a third-person narrative that intimately
explores a single nameless woman's thoughts and observations as she tries to
cross the border. The story opens by conjuring the woman's sense of weariness
at the inevitable discourtesies and humiliations that she has come to expect in
crossing the Qalandiya checkpoint to Jerusalem in her attempt to meet with
relatives there: 'She's tried several times to avoid that arduous trip toJerusalem;
she can no ...

The heavily pregnant woman also asked to use a separate gate, but was also
refused. She attempted to make her way through the crowd to the humanitarian
gate, but eventually gave up and left. Around 7,000 pedestrians pass through
Qalandiya every day with crossing from one side to the other taking between 60
and 90 minutes in each direction on a good day. Workers begin queuing to cross
as early as four in the morning. We shall continue our financial support for

At Qalandiya, the main crossing between Jerusalem and the West Bank,
Palestinians who are resident in Jerusalem, or who have permission to travel
there, are still able to come and go. The same is not true for Israelis. A huge
yellow sign written in Hebrew, Arabic, and English warns that it is illegal for
Israelis to cross onto the West Bank (settlers have their own crossing points, and
do not come this way). Yet Gazans, now under a state of siege, live in total
ignorance of the lives of ...

Suleiman's Divine Intervention (2002), or through the touching of hands at the
Lebanese-Israeli border in Mai Masri's Frontiers of Dreams and Fears (2001), for

β€” a site that cannot be grasped in its material, emotive and intellectual entirety β€”
and so remains an ominous backdrop or threatening presence rather than a point
of focus.

Israel is building two large border crossingsβ€”in the south near Beit Sahour and
in the north next to the abandoned Qalandiya airport. Originally, there were no
plans for any other openings. But, in 2004, the threat of Supreme Court action
and international pressure prompted the authorities to plan a dozen more gates.
At the beginning of 2005, Israeli officials declared unofficially that when the wall
was completed, Palestinians from East Jerusalem would no longer be allowed to
