Will the right hon. Lady condemn in the strongest terms the recent total closure of the Gaza border by Israel, in utter violation of the ceasefire, making it very difficult—even more difficult—for the aid she provides and the other aid for reconstruction after the terrible destruction imposed by the Israelis? This cannot go on.

Why is it that Gerald Kaufman does not mention Egypt's closure of its border with Gaza after over 30 Egyptian soldiers were murdered in Sinai?

Perhaps it is because of his venemous hatred if Israel, despite being Jewish himeself?

It would be interesting to know why Kaufman is so virulently anti-Israel - perhaps because he does not believe in God?
