As described in chapter seven, the "mighty Jordan" is only a few feet wide here, forming the serpentine border between Israel and the Kingdom of Jordan. Kibbutz Haziv vineyards are on the left. The brown/beige plateau above the river belongs to the Kingdom of Jordan. Jonathan Kadison, before he became "The Rabbi Who Knew Too Much," worked these vineyards under the watchful eye of PLO fighters on the plateau. IDF soldiers in a half-track positioned themselves on the road between the vineyards, facing the plateau. Gunfire erupted virtually every evening, after farmers on both sides had finished their work.
