BETHLEHEM (Ma'an) -- The Israeli army announced its closure of the West Bank from midnight Tuesday until midnight Saturday, a statement said late Tuesday.

The Allenby Crossing between the West Bank and Jordan will also operate under reduced hours on Wednesday and Thursday, as Israeli Jews celebrate Rosh Hashana, the Jewish New Year.

Israeli Minister of Defense Ehud Barak ordered the four-day closure of crossings bridging the West Bank to Israel and Jerusalem, the army statement said.

No Palestinians will be permitted to leave the West Bank during the holiday period, except patients cleared to receive medical care in Jerusalem or Israel, according to the release.

Humanitarian aid and passage of doctors and medical staff will be subject to the authorization of the Israeli military authorities in the West Bank, it added.

The sole access point for Palestinians traveling abroad, the Allenby terminal, will be opened from 8 a.m. to 4 p.m. on Wednesday and 8 a.m. to 8 p.m. on Thursday, before returning to normal operating hours, crossings authorities said.

Every Day You Hate & Wish Evil upon Us.

Every day that you Palestinians continues to refuse to negotiate and
to end the conflict should be treated the same as this Jewish holiday,
a complete closure of crossings from the West Bank Areas A/B,
into Israel, and the West Bank Area C, until Palestinians stop feeling
like you do, which seems likely to be forever, so Palestinian life in the
West Bank may soon resemble Gaza conditions, unless you "wise-up"
Every Day !!!

And Abbas calls terrorist Peres 2 say 'Happy New(Jewish)Year"? Every year,since 1930's Zionists,in their ethno-supremacist state have poured hatred,punishment,discrimination,intimidation,indefinate detentions,closed military zones,tanks,emergency regs,humiliation,Jewish-only ugly colonies,bombs,snipers,walls,barbed wire,missiles,pain & death on Palestinians. At least the closed crossings protect the native Arabs from the barbarian lunatic settlers &their frenzy.Israel,ye shall reap as ye sow.

Israel today = Germany under Hitler! The Jews are doing the same things to the Palestinians as Hitler did to them! The Jews were put into Ghettos and forced to stay just like Gaza & the West Bank!

We are better than you, because "we CAN stand strangers in our land", and the widows, and the orphans !!! - IN FACT, THESE ARE THE WORDS OF OUR HOLY BOOK. THE SAME BOOK THAT WAS WRITEN ON THIS VERY LAND, and THE SAME HEBREW WRITINGS that both the PLO and Jordan acknowledge to have come from the Land, since they demanded that these Hebrew books be returned to them, because they were found north west of the Dead Sea (the the Dead Sea Scrolls) !!!!!

11 ) Thank You / Tobias

It's getting to be a fine old holiday tradition: the locking up of the Pals. Israel should take this ball and run with it. Maybe hold celebratory house demolitions or something.

To Adam #9 'Israel today = Germany under Hitler! The Jews are doing the same things to the Palestinians as Hitler did to them! The Jews were put into Ghettos...' You noticed. I think one of the frustrating things for Israeli Jews is that as much as they try to reenact their oppression with themselves as the oppressor and the Palestinians as the victims, they can't get the Palestinians to helplessly submit. That helpless submission is what they're really craving...
