I took this video last week from the back seat of a cab traveling from Jerusalem to Tel Aviv on a highway through the occupied West Bank. I was struck by the architecture of apartheid: the complete separation of one group — the Israelis allowed on the Israelis-only road — from Palestinians, the villages we pass through whose residents are not allowed access to a road on their own lands.
The extent of the barrier was staggering to me. The video culminates at 3:15 with views of Ofer Prison. I’ve been to several demonstrations at Ofer, but never seen it from the apartheid road.
You will notice that the cabdriver goes in for a lot of racist characterizations of Palestinians as ill-educated and incapable of work. I wish I could say his attitudes are atypical.
Here is a B’Tselem report on Route 443 that describes much of the architecture you see in this video.
