The Palestinian death toll rises to 41 with 1,300 injured as Donald Trump foments violence with the U.S. Embassy move to Jerusalem. Israelis are celebrating the move of the embassy with a massacre of Palestinians. Let that sink in….
Israeli snipers executed protesters one by one along the border with Gaza as Trump literally lobbed a Molotov cocktail in an already simmering Middle East — 448 injured by live ammunition. Among the injured are women, children and journalists. This move comes days after he violated the Iran nuclear deal by pulling out.
Trump tweeted: “Big day for Israel. Congratulations!” This is the deadliest day in Gaza since 2014.
Big day for Israel. Congratulations!

Trump also invited pastors Robert Jeffress and John Hagee to participate in the opening ceremonies. Jeffress is anti-Islam, anti-Jew, anti-LGBT, anti-Mormon and anti-black. He previously said Mormonism was “founded by a servant of Satan.” He said, “Jews have embraced lies on the pathway to hell,” Media Matters reports.

History will record that the United States government celebrated with Israel in Jerusalem as it massacred scores of Palestinians in Gaza.

– New US embassy opens in Jerusalem.
– 46 Palestinians killed and 1703 injured by Israeli military at Gaza border.
– Turkey and Egypt condemn Israeli actions.
– Loud explosions heard inside Gaza.
– Deadliest day since 2014 Gaza War.

We are witnessing an abhorrent violation of international law & human rights in #Gaza. 38 confirmed dead, including 6 children, with close to 2000 people injured. Many are reporting injuries to the head and chest. Over 500 injured with live ammunition. This must end immediately.
— AmnestyInternational (@amnesty) May 14, 2018
41 people have now been killed in #Gaza. A shameless violation of international laws, in some instances committing what appear to be willful killings constituting war crimes. The Israeli authorities must immediately rein in this excessive force to prevent further loss of life.

Israeli forces are massacring unarmed civilians in Gaza while calling the Palestinians terrorists. Well a real terrorist is someone who can look into the scope of a sniper rifle, select a young girl, place the crosshairs between her eyes, and squeeze the trigger.

It's disgusting to watch Fox News and Americans celebrate the move of the U.S. Embassy this morning to Jerusalem, while at the exact moment Israel has shot and killed 28 Palestinians, including 3 women/children in Gaza.
This is WRONG.

Imagine the desperation it takes to walk into live gunfire from the Middle East's most powerful fighting force, armed with nothing more than rocks & the occasional Molotov or grenade. Try to conceive of the circumstances that could drive so many human beings to such an act. #Gaza

With Trump moving the U.S. embassy and withdrawing from the Iran nuclear deal, plus his multiple Muslim bans, I can't help but think he's trying to escalate conflict in the Middle East. This is reckless and dangerous. Lives are at stake.#resist #trump #IranNuclearDeal #Gaza

The killing & injuring of unarmed civilian protesters in #Gaza is a barbaric crime against humanity. Human lives must be worth more than symbolic selfishness.
