Today 35,000 protesters rallied against the US Embassy opening in Jerusalem as tear gas and sniper fire rained down.
Every country has the obligation to defend its borders,’ Netanyahu said on Twitter.
‘The Hamas terror organisation declares its intention to destroy Israel and send thousands to break through the border fence in order to achieve this aim. We will continue to act firmly in order to defend our sovereignty and our citizens.’
It comes after a 14-year-old was among 55 shot dead along the Gaza border on what is already the deadliest single day in the Israeli-Palestinian conflict since a 2014 war between the Jewish state and Gaza’s Islamist rulers Hamas.
At least 2,400 more have been injured with hundreds of them by live bullets, according to Gaza officials as the Palestinian government accused Israel of committing a ‘terrible massacre’ and Amnesty International called the bloodshed an ‘abhorrent violation’ of human rights.
This afternoon a White House delegation – including Ivanka Trump and her husband – gathered for an inauguration ceremony for the opening of the new embassy alongside Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu.
Would globalists Hillary Clinton, Bill Shorten, or Jeremy Corbyn defend national borders with force? Or would they let protestors in and pay to put them up and become citizens?
