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.

Flipping good addition to the thread, KM.

I read a short twitter thread earlier today, a mother in America whose 12-year-old daughter had had an actual lock-down (because of an unidentified intruder on site, which turned out to be fine). I was choked up reading it, and the replies - people with smaller children who are instructed to hide in their playhouse or a store cupboard and be quiet. Heartbreaking.

I can't imagine how I'd feel as a parent of a school-age child in America. fcuking furious, for one, that the NRA and its supporters consider it a price worth paying.

Hate to say it but it's not just a US thing. We have an "invacuation" plan with termly drills at my school. Quite unnerving having to make my class hide and be quiet.

On a similar theme here are some eighth graders in the USA who have just received the gift of a bulletproof plate to put in their school backpacks before they go to high school next year.

It's the small differences that really divide the English speaking world, Americans are horrified when someone says cnut, British people are horrified when multiple innocent schoolchildren are slaughtered by a maniac with a firearm.

Most Brits (outside PH anyway) would be horrified when police beat up a man in a police station who wasn't even being investigated partly because of the way he leaned against a wall.

Without clicking on the link, see if you can guess the man's colour (you can)
