A Palestinian woman with her children reaches a check-point: we do not know when or where, but this has certainly happened thousands of times.
As Muraro writes, “She is walking along bringing her two children with her, but a man in uniform, squatting, bars her way with a weapon pointed at her abdomen. Through a strange reversal of meanings, to me it looks as if he is begging her for what was once called charity: he is asking her for the charity to take him back with her”.
