This portrayal - "Route 60, a highway that runs through the West Bank. The road was rerouted in 1990 to add bypasses that allow Jewish settlers to travel the West Bank without having to go through Palestinian towns." - is a bit wrong. Highway 60 was rerouted only after the Oslo Accords in 1993 and the reason was two-fold: as Ramallah and Shchem/Nablus were to be surrendered to the Palestinian Authority, the road had to be rerouted. In addition, a second reason was to minimize the injuries and danger to Jewish vehicular travel due to rock-throwing and firebomb tossing, Unfortunately, by awarding Fatah terrorists rigles only ratched up the dangers and many Jews were shot and killed on that road including drive-by shootings from cars driven by Arabs which is odd given the claim that the road is an "apartheid road". Today, half the traffic carries Pal. Authority license plates
