May 14 (UPI) — Dozens of people died in violence in Gaza ahead of the controversial opening of the new U.S. Embassy in Jerusalem on Monday. Ceremonies marking the embassy’s move from the official capital in Tel Aviv were intended to be festive and celebratory, but authorities are preparing for demonstrations that could turn into fighting. An interim embassy began operating at the existing U.S. consulate building Monday. The doors opened at 4 p.m., during a 90-minute ceremony led by U.S. Ambassador to Israel David Friedman.
Ivanka Trump and husband Jared Kushner, both senior White House advisers, represented the United States at the ceremony. U.S. Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin and Deputy Secretary of State John Sullivan also attended. President Donald Trump delivered a message via video in which he called the embassy move “a long time [in] coming.” He referred to Jerusalem as:
Anti-Israeli demonstrations along the Gaza border are continuing as part of the Palestinians’ so-called ‘Great March of Return’. Over the last 6 weeks, the movement has reportedly left almost 50 Palestinians killed & thousands injured, as Israeli forces dispersed crowds along the border fence.
Israel is GUILTY of crimes against Humanity
So much evidence here on film. Can you imagine living like this? Israel’s blockade on Gaza is illegal and a crime against humanity which the world can see. Individuals in the zionist Israeli government can be charged for war crimes and crimes of ethnically cleansing a race/group of people. They will be going to prison, they might even be executed depending where they are caught and what the laws are in that country. Building on existing closures and restrictions, the blockade means the delay or denial of a broad range of items – food, industrial, educational, medical – deemed “non-essential” for a population largely unable to be self-sufficient at the end of decades of occupation.
The blockade prevents access by sea, land and air, effectively closing off a population of 1.5 million Palestinians from the outside world. This short film examines what the blockade means for the people of Gaza, as they struggle to rebuild their lives over a year after Operation Cast Lead.

WHO CARES ABOUT THE PEOPLE OF GAZA? – NOT THOSE THAT CALL THEMSELVES THE CHILDREN OF GOD, THAT BOMB THEM! WHO IS THE GOD THAT THE PEOPLE OF ISRAEL SERVE THAT WOULD ENJOY DEATH AND MURDER? WHO IS THE GOD YOU WORSHIP? DOES HE KILL CHILDREN?
