As Stand for Israel told you in yesterday's Daily Dispatch, the Israeli government has closed a border crossing at the Israel-Gaza border because of security threats.

Arutz Sheva's Dalit Halevi reports that Islamic Jihad has called Israel's action "a declaration of war" and says it will respond:
The Islamic Jihad terrorist organization, Hamas' main ally in Gaza, on Monday blasted the Israeli government's decision to close the Kerem Shalom crossing between Israel and Gaza, saying it was tantamount to "a declaration of war against the Palestinians."

The group also pointed an accusing finger at the international community, saying, "The entire world bears responsibility for its silence and its inability to curb the terror policy adopted by the occupation, its government and its army against our people..."
