Egyptian FM Elaraby tells Al-Jazeera that Gaza crossing could be opened within 7 to 10 days; “steps taken to alleviate suffering of Palestinians.”
The Rafah crossing between Egypt and Gaza will open on a permanent basis within seven to ten days, Egyptian Foreign Minister Nabil Elaraby told Al-Jazeera during an interview Thursday.
He said during the interview that steps would be taken in order to alleviate the “suffering of the Palestinain people.”
The opening of the crossing would allow greater freedom of movement for people on both sides of the border, as well as goods in and out of Gaza without Israeli permission.
In February, a limited number of Palestinians were allowed to cross through the border.

The “Revolution” in Egypt has given the Hamas a grand victory.
A change in Egypt foreign policy was expected. Now we know what is in the pipeline from the fresh Egyptian desire for “Peace, freedom and democracy”.
The “new freedom” can be used by the Muslim Brotherhood to ship all kinds of equipment into Gaza, through a border crossing that Egypt fore many years kept closed in a bid to end the Hamas-regime.
What kind of equipment can we expect into Gaza from the south?
The most wanted items are Anti-Aircraft missiles, that can shoot down Israeli helicopters. Advanced anti-tank missiles are also on the Hamas wanted list.
Hamas would also like to have weapons that can bring down Israeli F16’s. But such rockets can only be provided by NATO, so Hamas will still have to wait for some time.
Bomb materials to feed suicide bombers are also in short supply.
We who have found peace with God through the Lamb of God, Jesus the Messiah, must not be alarmed. The fresh wickedness from Egypt just proves that we are approaching the final battle in Zion. We who have received a citizenship in Heaven have absolutely nothing to worry about. Rejoice and be glad. Tell Israel to repent, so she also will avoid the coming wrath. Tell all Jews that Jesus the Messiah loves and cares for them.
