Palestinians die in protests! This isn’t a tragedy. It’s a planned, desired outcome by the Palestinians

This is exactly what they wanted: trade lives to keep the MSM focus on them, and not the US embassy opening. They knew these people would get killed. And it’s largely working.

At least 37 Palestinians have been killed and 1,300 wounded by Israeli troops in clashes on the Gaza border, Palestinian officials say.

OMG! “Peace process” endangered by Trump!

Hey! Let’s get real. I’m 66 years old. I’ve lived with this “peace process” for fifty years! Year in, year out, I’m always being warned about something endangering “the peace process.”

I concluded long ago that “the peace process,” whatever it might actually be, is not a “peace process” at all. It’s posturing by the players for international support.

The move overturns decades of international consensus on Jerusalem, a highly contested city, half of which was occupied and annexed by Israel following the 1967 War.

Israel claims all of Jerusalem as its “united” capital, and its annexation of East Jerusalem effectively put the entire city under de-facto Israeli control. The Palestinians, however, see East Jerusalem as the capital of their future state.

The international community, including the US, does not recognise Israel’s jurisdiction and ownership of the city.

Palestinians say that moving the embassy would prejudge one of the most sensitive issues in the conflict – the status of Jerusalem – and undermine the US’ status as an honest mediator.

President Abbas has warned that the move would have a “disastrous impact on the peace process, on the two-state solution and on the stability and security of the entire region”.

Trump Town! Possible name for new embassy row in Jerusalem!

That would be appropriate. US presidents have talked for years about moving the embassy to Jerusalem, but only Trump actually did it. Actually, had Barack Obama had his way, the area would today be in Palestinian hands. But I’m sure the Israeli Progressives, aka the Labour Party, will do their best to insure this doesn’t happen.

In the letter, which was obtained exclusively by The Jerusalem Post, Galant asked the top figures in his ministry to start working on solutions to house the workers of the embassies.

Following the letter, Roznik, Solomon-Maman and other ministry officials met this week and started working on a plan.

“There is an apparent pattern of embassies moving to Jerusalem, and we have to start getting ready now,” Gallant said. “We might have to build dozens of embassies, and we would need new land ready for that purpose. I asked my ministry to vigorously take action as fast as possible.”

Gallant suggested a couple possible names for the area where the embassies would be located. He initially called it “Embassy Town,” but then said he may decide to instead call it “Trump Town,” after US President Donald Trump, who initiated next month’s move of the US Embassy to Jerusalem.
