La Cartita --- In just a few hours, protests against the opening of a US embassy have turned deadly as the Israeli army opened fire on more than 500 protestors. Among them, several women and children, leaving more than 52 dead, according to the AP. Jared Kushner, in East Jerusalem, Palestine, callously shunned the protests calling them 'part of the problem' even as dozens died as a result of US trained Israeli soldiers opening fire on demonstrators. As a result, Palestinian militants opened fire on Israeli positions, while Israeli fighter jets bombarded the militants after Kushner's statements.
