Update: My Trip to Ramallah 01/31/06

Ok, so I wanted to post why my trip home took me 3 hours and why I saw the Israeli soldiers questioning Settelers...

"AMONA OUTPOST, West Bank (Reuters) - Israeli riot police clashed with stone-throwing settlers trying to block the demolition of part of an unauthorized Jewish outpost in the West Bank in violent scenes reminiscent of Israel's Gaza pullout. Black smoke from tires protesters set alight rose above the hilltop Amona outpost on Wednesday where thousands of Israeli ultranationalists barricaded themselves in houses vowing to fight the destruction of nine uninhabited buildings. Riot police on horseback, coming under a hail of rocks, used clubs to beat back the crowd made up mostlyof religious youngsters, some wearing the orange ribbons that had symbolized resistance to the Gaza withdrawal five months ago. About 40 protesters and several policemen were hurt. Amona was the latest battleground for settlers angry over the unilateral Gaza pullout and keen to prevent additional withdrawals in the occupied West Bank if interim Prime Minister Ehud Olmert's Kadima party is elected in a March 28 election."

For everyones information, the roads were closed today and lots of people lost a day of work. Not sure if they were closed off to settlers though.

PP: Roads were a pain for everyone...and it was more like 300 wounded instead of 40.
