Trump's move to the international city was an act of political state terror – contemptuous of Palestinian rights.
On Monday, US and Israeli officials, along with invited guests, celebrated the embassy's opening in temporary facilities – ignoring the mass slaughter of peaceful Gazan protesters throughout the day.
"What a glorious day for Israel," Netanyahu roared, adding: "We are in Jerusalem, and we are here to stay" – ignoring his culpability for bloody Monday in Gaza.
From Washington, Secretary of State Pompeo "celebrate(d) the opening of the United States Embassy to Israel in Jerusalem…recogniz(ing) Jerusalem as Israel's capital."
He pretended to support a "lasting and comprehensive peace between Israel and the Palestinians the US and Jewish state abhor and reject.
