Blockade? Update I

Remember Israel said it will loosen the Gaza blockade? Well, apparently they only said that in English. The Hebrew version of the document makes no mention of easing the blockade. Is this a mistake or intentional? (I'd bet on intentional.) (H/t to Juan Cole who has more on the story.)

In good news though, Obama has gone further than other US presidents in regards to Israel. In the new National Security Strategy (as quoted by Haaretz) there should be 2 states and one of them is "a Jewish state of Israel, with true security, acceptance, and rights for all Israelis." So a state of Israeli for all Israelis, not just for Jews.
