Pakistan expresses grave concern over shifting of US embassy to Jerusalem

"He had assured Palestine President Mahmoud Abbas that India was committed to the Palestinian people's interests and hoped for return of peace in this region".
By the time the embassy's opening ceremonies were underway, tens of thousands of Palestinians had gathered to protest the change at the border fence separating Israel from Gaza.
Palestinian authorities on Wednesday urged United Nations to condemn the killings of the protesters at the Gaza border was war crimes. Israel's "eternal, undivided, capital' may in time turn out to be a mirage, but then so unfortunately is present Muslim unity".
"We haven't been able to get that message out of how it is from our side, what we are defending - and the "winning picture" overwhelmingly, by a knockout, unfortunately, have been the graphics from the Palestinian side", Conricus said.
He said Hamas instructs women and children to move close to the border fence, assuring them that the Israel Defense Forces soldiers do not shoot women and children.
Israel is coming under mounting worldwide pressure and calls for an independent probe over the violence.
This was corroborated on Tuesday by Australian Prime Minister Malcolm Turnbull, who blamed Hamas for the dozens of deaths in Gaza for "pushing people to the border". These countries also demanded an global investigation.
Whatever their personal failings or policy mistakes, recent USA presidents sensibly put off the requirements of the 1995 Jerusalem Embassy Act, shifting the American embassy from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem to "protect their national security interests", knowing well that any imposed change in status of the contested city would spark violent Palestinian unrest, end the supposed American role of "honest broker" in the 70-year Palestinian-Israel dispute and prove the final nail in the coffin for a viable two-state solution. It was a break with the U.N.'s decade-long stance that Jerusalem's final status must be decided in direct negotiations between Israel and the Palestinians, who seek eastern Jerusalem as a future capital of their own.
"Choosing a tragic day in Palestinian history [to open the Jerusalem embassy] shows great insensibility and disrespect for the core principles of the peace process", Mr Hamdallah wrote. It also triggered a diplomatic backlash against Israel.
The U.S. blocked it.
Haley said those who suggest that the Gaza violence has anything to do with the location of the U.S. Embassy in Jerusalem "are sorely mistaken". He didn't immediately give details of his proposal.
