    Egypt will permanently open its border with the Gaza Strip, the transitional government said Wednesday, putting it at odds with Israel. The unsealing of the border will give 1.5 million Gazans access to the world for the first time in four years.

    The move highlights how the popular uprisings throughout the Arab world are changing regional politics. The border between Rafah and Gaza has been closed since Hamas took control in Gaza in 2007, and is the only official entry point to the Gaza Strip outside of Israel. The border was closed at the same time that Israel began imposing its own blockade on Gaza for security reasons, the New York Times said.

    Does it pose any serious challenge to Israel? If it does, what are the possible responses expected from Israel?

    The border was partially porous anyway , but this will even give rise to more acts of terrorism. ISREAL will do what it does best
