Israel expected to ease blockade

— Israel is likely to significantly ease the land blockade of Gaza in coming days in an effort to blunt the international outcry over its deadly raid on a blockade-busting flotilla, officials said Wednesday.

Israel has been scrambling to find ways to ease the embargo and its own growing international isolation.

Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu convened senior ministers and security officials to discuss changes but they failed to reach a decision. They are now expected to vote today, said a meeting participant speaking on condition of anonymity because the talks were closed.

How about an international blockade of all weaponry going into that region, including Egypt, Jordan, Lebanon, Palestinians, Saudi Arabia, Syria, Iraq and Israel?
