Jared Kushner to name for unity at Jerusalem embassy dedication

The two areas are roughly 50 miles from each other, but could have been worlds apart.

Jared Kushner, President Trump's son-in-law and White House adviser, briefly alluded to the protests in his speech at the embassy ceremony, but for some reason, the White House removed that section from its official transcript.

That "journey to peace" appeared elusive on Monday, although, as greater than four dozen Palestinians were killed in Gaza by Israeli safety forces who used each deadly and nonlethal means to disperse protests alongside the border and forestall Palestinians from crossing into Israel.

Journalist David Ignatius, a guest on the show, reiterated that the contrast of the images "will shock people in the Middle East, should be a shocking contrast for people all over the world". This has drawn controversy to Ivanka Trump and her husband, Jared Kushner, for seemingly ignoring what critics call a humanitarian crisis unfolding around them, and the New York Daily News took direct aim at Ivanka.

However Trump's recognition of Jerusalem as Israel's capital and his resolution to maneuver the US Embassy to the holy metropolis threw the most important wrench to this point within the administration's peace-brokering efforts, with Palestinian leaders refusing to have interaction the administration because the December announcement.

The embassy moving from its former home in Tel Aviv to Jerusalem is a significant one.

Eventually, though, the real Jared Kushner made an appearance.

"As we have seen from the protests of the last month and even today, those provoking violence are part of the problem and not part of the solution", Kushner said via Time. The headline reads, "Daddy's Little Ghoul". "If she was standing in front of the Gaza border smiling, that would have been an issue".

Israeli forces defended their actions in a tweet on Monday evening, saying "many" of the protesters "attempted to infiltrate Israel", using several explosive devices and firebombs.

Meanwhile, this week marks the 70th anniversary of the Nakba, or "catastrophe" in Arabic, which commemorates Palestinian displacement following the Israeli declaration of independence in 1948.
