Israel redraws the roadmap, building quietly and quickly

Important article from Chris McGreal, a Guardian journalist in Jerusalem:,16518,1594808,00.html

Unfortunately, it very much reflects what I’m seeing when I travel between Jerusalem and Ramallah. A brand new “terminal” is being built to replace the Qalandia checkpoint, which I’m told is going to be run by civilians.It looks very much like an international border crossing. It even has disabled parking spots. Israel is very clearly consolidating their hold on East Jerusalem.

Pictures and a fuller report will hopefully follow soon.
