WHILE PALESTINIAN PROTESTERS DIE THE AMERICAN EMBASSY IN JERUSALEM IS OFFICIALLY OPENED

While tens of Palestinian demonstrators are dead, the official ceremony took place in Jerusalem of the opening of the American Embassy. It was a jubilant affair, broadcast on Sky News with dual images of the various speakers on the left of the screen and views of Gaza in smoke on the right. Priceless!
The highlights of this historic ceremony must be on the one hand the speech by Jared Kushner, Trump’s son in law and no better pup of his administration for the task, and that by Netanyahu on the other.
They were speeches full of fervour, both in the name of “democracy” and “peace”. Yes, peace! In Netanyahu’s words : “this is a great day for peace”, hinting at the fact that now Israel (that is he) is somewhat stronger “to make momentous decisions for its people”. A prophecy of things to come, conscious and proud as he is of having the US on his side? Of course, some of us, viewers of this hypocritical political pantomime, think differently. For it’s the strengthening of the Israel-US alliance which is yet another notch in the escalation of troubles in the Middle East.
