On a day when 41 have died (inc 6 children) and over 2000 injured a Palestinian protestor tries to bat a tear gas canister back with a broken tennis racket

Israel doesn't even pretend to show any restraint any more.

With Trump showing the support he is, I doubt they feel the need to.

Its bizarre because in a legalistic way he is right. Any nation has the right to choose its capital and congress did pass a resolution to move the embassy decades ago. Its just dumb politically and insensitive. And appallingly timed.

Except it isn’t right as it’s illegally occupied territory.

Only half of Jerusalem is.

My understand is that the us consulate (where they have currently located the embassy) is in the undisputed part.

Like I said, doesn't make it right

Yes but proclaiming that the whole of Jerusalem is Israel’s capital is illegal. However it demonstrates nicely that America isn’t and never has been an honest broker of peace there. They should be excluded from any negotiations in future and really it should be the EU and China who try to negotiate with Israel.

The Chinese are notoriously loath to get involved in any overseas diplomacy like that though. It's something they have to learn to do if they want to be seen as a serious superpower.

True, but you might find their role changing as they realise the strategic importance of middle eastern and central Asian countries for their own prosperity. Frankly they can’t do a worse job than the Americans currently.
