Apartheid Road: ‘the Borders of Our Own Bantustans’ | Portside

It is not easy to reach Route 4370 from the center of Jerusalem. Heading northeast, after the Israeli settlement on French Hill, you have to turn in the direction of Jericho. You leave the buildings of all shapes and sizes of the Palestinian refugee camp of Shuaffat, built on top of one another, to your left, and take the a-Tur exit. Finally, after passing through streets almost devoid of all signage, you reach an opening in the concrete wall, which Israel built around the whole of Jerusalem, including its eastern, Arab part, occupied in 1967.
