John Brennan Rips Trump, Netanyahu Over Gaza Violence, ‘Utter Disregard’ for Palestinian Rights
Ex-CIA Director John Brennan is back on Twitter again, this time to blame President Trump and Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu for the horrific violence in the Gaza strip today.
Reports indicate that approximately 50 Palestinians were killed today while another 2,700 were injured when they arrived at the border to protest the U.S. Embassy’s opening in Jerusalem. Since this appears to be the deadliest border conflict incident since the 2014 Gaza war, Brennan is partly laying the blame at Trump’s feet, saying he sacrificed the U.S.’s reputation as a peacemaker with his “utter disregard” for the human rights of Palestinians.
Deaths in Gaza result of utter disregard of Messers Trump & Netanyahu for Palestinian rights & homeland. By moving Embassy to Jerusalem, Trump played politics, destroyed US peacemaker role. New generation of Israelis/Palestinians need to isolate extremists to find path to peace.

The White House today said that Hamas was to blame for the violence, calling it an “unfortunate propaganda attempt.”
