Yesterday, The New York posted published an article chronicling the clash between Palestinians and Israeli troops on the Gaza border.
They write that, “At least 52 Palestinians were killed in clashes with Israeli troops Monday, casting a pall on the inauguration of the new US Embassy in Jerusalem – and marking the deadliest violence since the 2014 Gaza cross-border war,” officials said.
Obviously, these “clashes” were the result of the Trump administration’s decision to move the American embassy from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem.
Well, that’s not really accurate, now is it. The U.S. embassy in Israel is the only American embassy not located in a nations’ capital city. Trump is merely setting things right. Yet we’re not supposed to question the oddity of this.
