U.S. stands apart on Gaza, justifies embassy move to Jerusalem

"Let's remember that the Hamas terrorist organization has been inciting violence for years, long before the United States made a decision to move our embassy", Haley told United Nations officials, according to Politico.

Canada, along with its major allies, does not support the US embassy move to Jerusalem, saying that's a decision for a future peace agreement between the Palestinians and Israelis.

"This is the life of the Palestinian people, and those who think that opening the embassy opens doors to peace, let them look at what is really happening in the Gaza Strip", he added.

He urged the global community to refrain from taking unilateral action that steers Israel and Palestine away from the peace process. He said there is "no justification for the killing" and that "Israel has a responsibility to calibrate it's use of force".

Amidror, in a conference call put together by the Israel Project, was referring to the decision of both those states to recall their ambassadors following Monday's bloody events in the Gaza Strip.

"As American Jews, we see Netanyahu saying he speaks for all Jews, and we're saying that's not true", volunteer organizer Sarah Brammer-Shlay told HuffPost on Tuesday, saying actions in Israel were "pushed by our government".

Britain, France, the Netherlands, Poland and Sweden - the five European nations on the council - joined Belgium, Germany and Italy in a statement calling on Israel to "refrain from excessive use of force" and on Hamas "to avoid provocation" and ensure that protests remain non violent.

Minister of International Relations and Co-operation Lindiwe Sisulu announced yesterday that her department was having continuous consultations with President Cyril Ramaphosa on the downgrading of the SA embassy in Israel after recalling the SA ambassador to the country.

Earlier on Tuesday, US Ambassador to the UN Nikki Haley said Israel had acted with exceptional "restraint" in dealing with the clashes on the Gaza border.

In fact the records of several countries here today suggest they would be much less restrained.

Hours later, Israel responded by expelling the Turkish consul in Jerusalem. Hamas took control of Gaza in 2006 following elections that ultimately split the Palestinian territories politically and ideologically, with the left-wing Fatah retaining its authority in the West Bank.

The resolution said the moving of American Embassy was a violation of global law and the United Nations Charter, which has sparked a popular uprising.

Speaking alongside May, Erdogan warned that history would not forgive Israel or the U.S. for moving the American embassy to Jerusalem in defiance of outrage in the Islamic world. Israel occupied the east of the city in the 1967 Middle East war and, in effect, annexed it, in a move not recognised internationally.

The Palestinians seek Israeli-annexed east Jerusalem as a capital. Palestinians want part of the city to become the capital of a future state.
