    Reader comments on Checkpoint

    Subject: These were not border guards
    Date: May 6, 2004
    Sender: DonPrevious | Next

    Apart from the scene at Bethlehem where the Israeli border police ask the girls if they are underage, the rest of the film showed Palestinians trying to go from one part of the occupied West Bank to another. The goal of the Israelis was not so much to prevent suicide bombers but to make life immpossible for the Palestinians.

    Editor's reply: Thanks for the correction.

    -- Joshua
