Embassy move: a Gazan’s outlook

First of all, this decision (to move the U.S. embassy) is invalid. Jerusalem is the cornerstone of the Palestinian cause. It’s the foundation on which everything else is built. This is a violation for every Palestinian, for any Arab. This decision is unacceptable.

“March of Return” in Gaza

More here in the future, including a timeline.

The protests in Gaza, allegedly marches, began on  Friday, March 30, 2018, seven weeks before the U.S. set up its Israel embassy in Jerusalem.

The initial plan was to protest each of seven Fridays, leading up to the day commemorating AnNakba — the Day of Catastrophe when the Jewish state in Palestine declared its independence in 1948. This year’s Day of Catastrophe was on Tuesday, May 15, 2018.

Notice that the Nakba is reckoned from when Jews declared a Jewish state in  accordance with the United Nation’s Partition Plan  for Palestine.
