Jerusalem embassy: Why Trump's move was not about peace

Thousands of Gaza residents turned out on Tuesday for the funerals of Palestinians killed by Israeli troops a day earlier.

.

The relocation on Monday of the USA embassy from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem inflamed the seven weeks of protests leading up to Nakba Day in the Gaza Strip, resulting in Israeli forces killing at least 60 Palestinian protestors and injuring more than 2,700.

The Palestinian health ministry said more than 2,700 people had suffered injuries and that numerous dead had not yet been identified. One Israeli soldier was wounded.

Namibian Minister of International Relations and Cooperation Netumbo Nandi-Ndaitwah in an interview with New Era yesterday said Namibia strongly condemns the killing of innocent Palestinians, among them women and unarmed children. "It's really an unfortunate incident now that we have people killed, but they were not supposed to be killed ... if relevant United Nations resolutions were followed", Nandi-Ndaitwah noted.

According to the Times of Israel, European foreign ministries on Monday slammed the United States decision to move its embassy to Jerusalem, saying "it violates worldwide law, is unwise and is likely to exacerbate tensions, shortly before the embassy's dedication ceremony began in Jerusalem".

Relations with South Africa and Turkey are not that important to Israel, so if they "want their ambassadors back home, they are most welcome", former national security adviser Yaakov Amidror said on Tuesday.

Consequently, the country was invited to a January 3 U.S. reception for United Nations member-states that did not vote in the resolution. She said Namibia reiterates its longstanding position that Jerusalem remains the internationally recognised capital of the two states.

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.

"The global community must step in and prevent war, we need to move forward quickly and effectively on all projects that we have discussed for months and months to solve the energy, water and health crisis of the population", he said. "The status of Jerusalem should be determined in a negotiated settlement between Israel and Palestinians, and Jerusalem should ultimately be the shared capital of the Israeli and Palestinian states", she pointed out.

The United Nations General Assembly rejected by a huge majority the USA recognition of Jerusalem as Israel's capital.
