How the world is reacting to Gaza border bloodshed

A newly hung sign pointing to the U.S. Embassy in Jerusalem which was inaugurated
Arguing that Hamas, the militant group that governs Gaza, had been "inciting violence for years, long before the United States made a decision to move our embassy", she said: "Who among us would accept this type of activity on your border?" The movement's grassroots organizers have vehemently disputed the claim.
Several Muslim-owned businesses in the St. Louis area also closed for 70 minutes around lunchtime to symbolize the number of years of Israeli occupation. She walked out of the room when the Palestinian delegation spoke. The move to Jerusalem upended decades of United States policy toward Jerusalem. Participants also read the names of Palestinians recently killed in border conflicts.
"We are a nation that deserves a land to live on, and they're eating it up", she said.
On this point, the five Security Council members in the European Union disagreed, reiterating their positions that Jerusalem is a "final status" issue to be finalized only after direct negotiations between Palestinian and Israelis in talks to create a "two-state solution". "So I want to dismiss the fact that this was a cause for violence".
The Palestinian health ministry said yesterday that Leila had died from tear gas inhalation during protests against the relocation of the U.S. embassy to Jerusalem. From withdrawing from the Paris climate accord and more recently the Iran nuclear deal to moving the U.S. embassy to Jerusalem, the United States and Europe no longer see eye-to-eye on key issues almost as often as they did under previous administrations. The move has been roundly condemned by Palestinian leadership and other world leaders, as East Jerusalem - under Israeli occupation since 1967 - has been recognized as the capital of a future Palestinian state by the worldwide community.
Israel has defended its response, blaming Hamas for fomenting violence and insisting it needed to protect nearby Jewish settlements from protesters getting through the border fence.
"I am profoundly shocked at the death toll and injuries inflicted on people in Palestine", said Mr Varadkar. Israeli tactics of using live fire against protesters has drawn worldwide condemnaton.
Palestinians have been protesting for the past six weeks as part of the "March of Return", a demonstration calling for the right of Palestinian refugees and their descendants to return to areas that are today part of Israel. Some Palestinian demonstrators threw rocks, lit tires on fire, and used slingshots, but not a single Israeli soldier was wounded, let alone put in a situation in which they would be justified using lethal force.
Boyd Barrett also called for the immediate expulsion of the Israeli ambassador to Ireland, a call that was taken up by other speakers at the event and the crowd. Yesterday's actions kicked off 40 days of nonviolent direct action, teach-ins, and more.
