I found myself forced to do this horroble mission of going to the ministry of interior in Jerusalem . Ofcourse it is in east jerusalem . When it comes to services east and west part as well as terminology becomes vital. The unification term becomes a pure fragmentation , segregation And humiliation . I was cursing my daughter for making me go through this from the early morning hours. I was faced by a long line that reached the beginning of the gate of this ghetto . Taking into consideration we are celebrating women’s day; I couldn’t miss out thr do many messages that were around. Veiled women. Crowds of women.more veils in all ages and styles . Stirring women. Pushing women. Screaming women. Disabled women. All women trying to push Inside to speed the entrance to a ghetto like compound controlled by two screaming in Hebrew soldiers to the non speaking in Hebrew women.

Oppression can be a systematic tool of dehumanizing . These soldiers are standing there enjoying every developed trait of sadism and applying it on the crowd. Somebody trained him this is a herd. At some point the herd,the crowd unify with the feeling and become part of this system. Behaving like animals that gradually explode their suppressed wildness into tamed herd of obedient sheep.

At a moment there is a unified feeling of rage that internalizes against all . The oppressor and the oppressed. The mean soldier keeps awakening my sensations of organizing my rage with each scream he makes. “Stand in two rows so that I can see the gate.”

Rage, anger, anxiety , disgust … From all .. Women and soldiers … I want to leave this place of a making hell… I could kill my daughter for making me go through this … Who needs to travel…
