In the news, the United States opened an embassy in Jerusalem yesterday at the order of President Trump, who finally fulfilled a promise former presidents Clinton, Bush and Obama made for decades.  The opening may have sparked protests, from Palestinians living in the Gaza Strip. Forty miles from the ceremony, 58 Palestinian protesters were killed by Israeli soldiers as they tried to cross into Israeli territory. Israel declared it was defending its borders. The Palestinians blamed the U.S. for the violence by moving its embassy to Jerusalem.  Israel blames Hamas for encouraging the protests.
