Jerusalem, new home of US Embassy, at core of Mideast strife

The site of the new US embassy is being readied, and signs are up across Jerusalem thanking President Trump for moving the embassy, thus recognizing Jerusalem as the capital of Israel. The embassy will be either gradually expanded on the current premises or a new complex might be built.

Witnesses said Israeli soldiers used a drone to down flaming kites that protesters flew over theborder in a bid to torch bushes and distract snipers. "Having said that, there are huge ramifications as it delivers the death certificate to American stewardship over political processes in Israel-Palestine relations". Trump's daughter Ivanka will also attend.

"We're pleased to sponsor this event", said Kapil Sharma, president of SPHR-UFV. One commenter responded that while they respected President Trump, there were local heroes, like Ze'ev Jabotinsky or Menachem Begin, who were more deserving of the honor. "They tell the Palestinians you have no rights here, and other nations can take over", he adds.

Meanwhile, the right of Palestinian refugees to return their former lands - now in Israel - is recognised in global law.

While popular with Israelis, the move has been met with wide opposition and skepticism from the worldwide community.

Ambassador Friedman is to preside over the dedication, scheduled for Monday, May 14, the secular date of Israel's 70th anniversary and the day after Jerusalem Reunification Day.

"There continues to be real anger among Palestinians" over Trump's decision, the CBC's Derek Stoffel said from Jerusalem.

Most Germans support reforms... to a point — Macron's EU
Trump's withdrawal from the Paris agreement, the Iran deal and the prospect of a trade war suggests German needs Europe. In addition there was no clarity over whether the U.S. would acknowledge existing agreements.

The fate of the ancient city has been a critical and unresolved issue in past US-brokered peace talks.

The opening coincides with renewed tension between Israel and Iran, that could turn into a full-blown conflict.

The protest came just three days ahead of what the leader of Gaza's ruling Hamas group has said will be a march by tens of thousands who could burst through the border fence into Israel.

He stated that security measures are also in place for the rest of the week surrounding Nakba day and the upcoming first Friday of Ramadan during which thousands of Muslim and Palestinian worshipers are expected to ascend the Temple Mount.

Gaza Health ministry said in an official statement that 49 Palestinians were killed and more than 8,000 injured by Israeli army gunfire since the beginning of the marches.

The only legitimate struggle for Palestinians, it seems, is keeping quiet, allowing their lands to be plundered and their children to be starved. "It sends a clear message to them: Abandon all hope".
