Today in Jerusalem, Ivanka Trump and Jared Kushner joined Israeli PM Benjamin Netanyahu and others in dedicating the new U.S. Embassy in Jerusalem. An AFP White House correspondent presented this compare/contrast of today’s events:

Well that’s ONE way to put it, if you’re taking sides:
Mind to tell your followers that the ppl on the left are either Hamas terrorists trying to infiltrate into Israel / Human shields used cruelly by Hamas? Israel has the right and obligation to protect it's people & it's borders

So you're saying the timing of these incursions is coincidental?
Get out. https://t.co/crt8o49MYH

Yeah, on the left you have people trying to cross a sovereign border using bombs and molotov cocktails.
On the right, you have people celebrating a long-overdue move by a country that passed a law which promised this move 23 years ago. https://t.co/sARsVoL9LT

There are reports that violence & attacks at the border could escalate:
Take note, everyone: Palestinian sources say Hamas gunmen will participate in tomorrow's violent riots at the Gaza-Israel border, will fire at Israeli servicemen, and will try to abduct an Israeli soldier. (Channel 14)

And useful dupes in the western media will still blame Israel for doing what it takes to prevent this… https://t.co/4piwNJ9cwz

Maybe there will even be a sequel to the “quite the disconnect” tweet if that happens.
