This is a very historic day in Israel, as the US finally makes good on its long-overdue promise to move its Embassy from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem, in recognition of the 3,000-year-old fact that Jerusalem is the Jewish capital. A 250-member US delegation is in Israel for the ceremony, including President Trump’s daughter Ivanka and her husband Jared Kushner. Here is the live stream of the event. I assume that once it’s over, you’ll be able to watch from the beginning here. If not, I’ll post an updated link.
The threatened violent protests had mostly been less than anticipated, but as the day drew near, hostilities ramped up, with thousands of Palestinian protesters massing along the Gaza security fence. Monday was the deadliest day so far, with 37 Palestinians killed in the clashes and over 900 wounded. But if they are trying to prove that they deserve a homeland that will take its place among civilized nations, reacting to Israel's right to choose its own capital with mass violence is hardly making their case.
