As American officials smiled and clapped at the opening of the new US embassy in Jerusalem, Palestinian protesters were gunned down by Israeli bullets at the Gaza border.
Twitter users were quick to point out the competing visuals and bad optics on a day when US officials were touting the opening of the new embassy as a “magnificent tribute to peace.”

Many users pointed out the images of White House Senior Advisor Jared Kushner and wife Ivanka Trump smiling and laughing at the opening of the embassy with Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu while protesters, among them children, were shot dead in Gaza.

Others pointed out the hypocrisy of top US and Israeli officials rubbing shoulders and talking about peace as bullets rained down on protesters a mere 50 miles away.

✔ @eugenegu   Jared and Ivanka partying it up in Jerusalem while Israeli forces massacre Palestinians in Gaza is a level of depravity you can only find in the Trump and Netanyahu administrations.

Rana Ayyub
✔ @RanaAyyub    Watching Netanyahu’s speech being telecast globally, calling it a glorious and historical day while Gaza witnesses perhaps the worst bloodbath in years. Tyranny has a face.

✔ @Mark_Coughlan  There’s Jared Kushner, working hard to bring peace to the Israeli-Palestinian conflict presumably… at the opening of the US Embassy in the divided city of Jerusalem. 37 Palestinians dead today so far from Israeli sniper fire at protests against the embassy and #Gaza blockade.

About ron abbass

Because of my last name, there are some who might think I'm a Muslim. I'm an older student of the bible and I regard myself as Christian-other. That is, I was baptized in a Torah-keeping assembly. I'm one who tries his best to follow Yayshua, the Messiah (Christ) by keeping the commandments, the dietary laws, the weekly Sabbath and the annual Sabbaths (Holy Days) instituted and ordained by the great I AM, the Creator-God of Israel. I reject the holidays and festivals invented by the Roman church. Truth-seeking is my present passion. Presently, I do a lot of research into the World Wars, the mass media, the Holocaust, Zionism, Health Issues, 9/11 and the power brokers who are behind the New World Order that is gradually being established mainly in the Western Nations. Many prognosticators (prophets) both secular and religious are warning us that we are living "On the Eve of Destruction" - the last days. There's a very good chance a nuclear tsunami will eventually visit many nations. Peace and blessings to all who love the truth and hate the lies.
