Route 5 is the highway crossing Israel from west to east, from the Tel Aviv metropolitan area to the West Bank.
The main artery of Israel.
Driving the road undermines the concept of boundary and border.
The Green Line, the 1967 border between Israel and Palestine, always stays as a non-binding silent passenger.
Google Street View recognizes the invisible border, pointed out by the little orange figure in the left lower corner, crossing houses and streets as if they were not there, or as if the line was not there.
My childhood home, and my parents residence until this day, is on a street crossed by the Green Line.
On the ride home I am never alone – the history, the politics and Zionism are my companions.
