Activists from Jewish Voice for Peace Western Mass commemorating Nakba despite the thunderstorms.
Bolivia's representative to the UN Security Council, Sacha Llorenti, began his talk at the emergency session on Tuesday by listing the names of the 61 Palestinians killed in this week's massacre of Gaza protesters by Israel.
Israel's Intelligence Minister Israel Katz claimed that Egyptian intelligence had "made unequivocally clear" to Haniyeh that Cairo would not help if Hamas continued to stoke the demonstrations. "Even after I've lost my leg I'll go back to the border", said the unemployed father of four.
The affiliation may matter little to those who have deemed Israel's response to the protests to be heavy-handed.
"I'm sorry that for 70 years, the promise of a creation of a State of Palestine has not yet been fulfilled".
More than two million people live in the narrow Gaza Strip, more than two-thirds of them refugees, and face continual economic hardship.
On Monday, over 40,000 Palestinians took part in "unprecedentedly" violent riots along the security fence, which included at least one gun battle with Israeli troops, as well as attempts to infiltrate into Israeli territory and to plant improvised explosive devices along the border, the army said.
"The Israelis are just shooting them down, it's astonishing", Levine said.
Levine said that given the United States' historic financial and political support of the Israeli state, representatives now have a duty to condemn the Israeli violence.
In a contrast, Donald Trump's daughter Ivanka Trump and son-in-law Jared Kushner, along with Israel's Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, were inaugurating the USA embassy around the same time attack was meted on Palestinians in Gaza. "The marches will continue until our people achieve their goals", Hamas spokesman Fawzi Barhoum said. That's what we are going to witness in the future too. "To speak out is one thing", Levine said.
Most of the European Union ambassadors in Israel are reported to have boycotted.
Warren and Markey both signed a letter - signed by 13 USA senators - urging Secretary of State Mike Pompeo to do more to "alleviate the ongoing humanitarian crisis in the Gaza strip".
Saying that Hamas had incited people to lob flaming objects toward the Israeli side of the border fence and urged protest marchers to breach it, Haley asked: "Who among us would accept this type of activity on your border?"
On Wednesday, Erdogan also said the Gaza bloodshed showed "the United Nations has collapsed".
Monday was the bloodiest single day for Palestinians since the Gaza conflict in 2014.
Jason Greenblatt, Mr Trump's Middle East peace envoy, said on Twitter that "taking the long-overdue step of moving our embassy is not a departure from our strong commitment to facilitate a lasting peace deal".
The decision to move the U.S. embassy has been opposed by many in the global community who fear recognition of Jerusalem as Israel's capital jeopardises prospects for a two-state solution. They're simply protesting in the wrong country.
