Arab League blasts 'shameful' countries celebrating U.S. embassy move

Most EU ambassadors absent as Israel marks US embassy move

An estimated 35,000 Palestinians gathered on the edges of Gaza as the US Embassy opened in Jerusalem, fanning out along the fence in the largest demonstrations yet.

The clashes took place as the new USA embassy was inaugurated in Jerusalem.

Reform Jewish leader Rabbi Rick Jacobs said he was "alarmed, concerned and profoundly saddened" by the deaths of more than 50 Palestinian protesters on the Gaza border.

The statement also called on Islamic nations and governments "to remain vigilant in the face of plots hatched by the Zionist regime (of Israel) and its allies".

Crowds in Gaza swelled to an estimated 30,000 by 2:30 p.m., 90 minutes before the new USA embassy was slated to officially open in the Arnona neighborhood of Jerusalem.

"I doubt that the Palestinian protests will subside - and may even increase - after the Nakba anniversary, particularly in light of the USA embassy opening in Jerusalem", she told RT.

"I think the massacres by Israel will continue, the peaceful protests from Palestinians will continue".

Dozens of Palestinian protesters had already been killed by Israeli army fire in the weeks before the violence on Monday, with the marches having begun in late March 2018.

"The truth is, today, Israel is not only 70 years old-Israel is 70 years strong".

There have been critics who said the move is mostly symbolic, noted Faulkner, but Mnuchin pointed out it is "very real to the people of Israel".

The relocation of the embassy from Tel Aviv, which was one of Mr Trump's key campaign promises, infuriated Palestinians who seek East Jerusalem as a future capital.

"Choosing a tragic day in Palestinian history (to open the Jerusalem embassy) shows great insensibility and disrespect for the core principles of the peace process", Hamdallah wrote.

But Trump also tasked Kushner with pursuing a peace deal between Israel and Palestine, and experts nearly unanimously agree that moving the U.S. embassy to Jerusalem will make a peace deal more hard.

Kushner, a senior advisor to President Trump, made a speech at the unveiling, and he called for unity in the area.

Meanwhile, Israeli prime minister Benjamin Netanyaho has hailed Trump's decision a milestone.

Mustafa Barghouti, a doctor and longtime member of the Palestinian parliament, said he believes the two-state solution is in "serious trouble".

Now the U.S.is an unlikely facilitator for peace.

The relocation of the USA embassy in Israel has sparked criticism from European countries, while drawing mixed reaction in the Middle East.

He said the decision is merely a recognition of reality, and he said it provides a firmer foundation for peace negotiations.

"The U.S.is not a mediator anymore", Abbas said.
