I could care less about the move of the American embassy to Jerusalem. If that's where Israel wants to put their embassy, more power to them. The status of the Palestinians is another matter. As pointed out by so many this last week, the Gaza Strip has become a giant open-air prison. The current thugs running the Israeli government treat these desperate people like dogs. There's no hope while the Israeli far right's in charge. This photo of Fadi Abu Saleh, a Palestinian in Gaza confronting Israeli soldiers, was widely circulated last week. Israeli troops shot him dead.
