Protesters hold placards during a demonstration against Jewish settlements in East Jerusalem
Protesters hold placards during a demonstration against Jewish settlements during a ribbon-cutting ceremony at a recently built Jewish settlement in the East Jerusalem neighbourhood of Ras al-Amud May 25, 2011. Members of Israel's Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu's rightist cabinet attended the ceremony at the recently built Jewish settlement in the largely Palestinian populated part of East Jerusalem, underscoring disputes that have dogged now-stalemated Middle East diplomacy for decades.
