Al-Jazeera Video: Israeli settlers push further into Palestinian land - 8 Sept 09
"Israeli settlers are pushing further into occupied Palestinian land, despite international pressure to halt settlement activity.
Hundreds of Israelis cheered as the first scoops of concrete were poured for a new settlement in an area called "E1" northeast of Jerusalem.
A Jewish settlement there will be the final link in a chain that cuts off Palestinians in East Jerusalem from the rest of the West Bank.
Al Jazeeras Jacky Rowland reports from EI, where protesting peace activists say the settlers are sabotaging Israels chances for peace."
