Keep The Wheels Spinning

My good friend and former partner in anti-Oslo demonstrations, Alex King, is an enthusiastic bicycle rider.  He rides everywhere.

And he decided to bike ride all the way to Kever Rachel.

He didn't get there.

He had to leave his bicycle behind.  Only motorized vehicles, that is, things that move with engines, could cross the IDF's security checkpoint.

Is this harrassment?  Is Condi Rice going to get involved?  Will the EU's humanitarian concern be displayed?

I doubt it.

If you have any good ideas about getting Alex to Rachel's Tomb on his bicycle, let us know please.

And keep those wheels spinning.
