I shot this from the hip as part of a multimedia project for which I rode the Jerusalem Light Rail end to end. The storyline I witnessed was predictable and everything fell into place during my ride. The transit police boarded as we neared the green line, and started harassing people who wore headscarves or were not white shortly thereafter. I don’t know what the result of this exchange was, but it was not the only one I witnessed on the 40-minute tram ride.
I felt embarrassed in my knowledge that I would not be asked for more than a quick ticket check.
