Democracy Now: Israeli Cabinet Celebrates New East Jerusalem Settlement

Egypt’s decision to unseal the Rafah crossing is a major blow to the Israeli blockade of the Gaza Strip. In other news from the region, Israeli cabinet members appeared at a ceremony in East Jerusalem Wednesday to mark the recent completion of a new Jewish settlement on occupied Palestinian land. A few dozen protesters rallied outside to oppose the settlement expansion.

Mossi Raz: “I have heard Mr. Netanyahu yesterday. He said that some settlements are going to be out of the Israeli border. And I call upon the Prime Minister to say that all the settlements will be outside of the Israeli border, and this settlement will be outside of the Israeli border.”
