In this passage, “A Palestinian Daily Commute through an Israeli Checkpoint” by William Booth and Sufian Taha show us as a readers that there is a checkpoint for the Palestinians in Israel to go to the work in Israel. Tarek Al Taweel is a Palestinian construction worker in Israel and he built many apartments in Israel. He makes $68 a day which is good for him. Tarek hates the checkpoint and shows to the Palestinians that the life is ugly and desperate. The Palestinian need a special permission to enter Israel and work there. Sometimes, they cannot enter to Israel if the checkpoint is closed. That shows the humiliation to the Palestinian. Tarek’s competence helped him to get a job, so he got the permit to work and travel easier to Israel which is a big advantages to him.
