Over the course of the next few months, Haaretz will be publishing all 10 chapters of “Walking the Green Line,” starting with the author's visit to Balata – the refugee camp in the northern West Bank that is home to 30,000 Palestinians. farther off, green hills glisten in the sunlight. Soldiers stand around the boy, weapons drawn. Cars pass by. Not one of them stops. We can’t hear sounds from our car and just stare at the odd picture outside: the youth, the soldiers, no one moving, everything seemingly frozen. We get out of the car and the soldiers charge at us, shouting, “Military zone. ” Over and over we ask why the youth is bound, but the soldiers ignore us.

But when I heard him call WJCT’s First Coast Connect, it became clear that raw partisan politics had lured him from his UNF chambers to parrot the Republican Party line and lecture Mayor Alvin Brown on how to be mayor.
