On 14 the U.S. transferred its embassy to Jerusalem. Palestinians took to the streets for large-scale demonstrations against U.S. and Israel. It would appear that Mr. Ryusaku Tanaka went up to the front line of the Israeli army before demonstrators reached. He risked his life to collect information. According to him, the Israel army threw grenades to unarmed demonstrators and snipers shot real bullets to them.
The Tokyo Shimbun says that the Trump administration “issued a message of ‘Holy City of Jerusalem as the capital of Jews’ to the world.” However, it can be said that this message can be pure fabrication.
I have often mentioned on the blog that the true Jerusalem is in the Asir region, Yemen and it is completely unrelated to the current Jerusalem. Next, they claim that the current Jerusalem is the capital of the Jewish people. This is a story based on the assumption that the promise of God or something in the Bible is still valid even today. I think that the story has legally no meaning at all.
And yet, correct bloodlines of Abraham who God made a promise with are Palestinians. DNA analysis clearly shows that most of the Jewish people currently staying in Jerusalem are Ashkenazy Jews and they are not descendants from Abraham.
As described above, people who have no connection to the land claim this land as theirs based on a pre-Christian fairy tale and demand Palestinians to leave there. Palestinians have lived there for centuries and the land is theirs.
Why is such an autocratic manner of Israel allowed? That’s because the Rothschild family who created Israel with their pocket money is in the background.

Shanti-phula has indicated some parts of the following text in black boldface type or in red letters.
English translation of an excerpt from a Japanese article: Ryusaku Tanaka Journal – May 15, 2018 –
[Palestine] Ten thousands of Palestinians carry out desperate demonstrations toward the border where Israeli troops waited to fire at them on the day when the U.S. embassy was relocated to Jerusalem.
On 14 when the U.S. relocated the embassy to Jerusalem, more than 10,000 people at the West Bank and Gaza demonstrated toward the border with Israel where the Israeli troops waited to shoot at them. They headed toward the border though they were fully aware of that.
I, Tanaka, moved along the back side of buildings and reached the front line of the Israeli troops. <snip> Demonstrators reached in nearly an hour. The people who had been driven out of their home and got separated from their families are never afraid of death. They walked toward the front line of the Israeli troops in full flood.

Israeli troops responded to the demonstrators with guns blazing. Grenades rained down on them. There was zero visibility due to white smoke. There was nowhere to run. I had breathing difficulty and eye sore due to tear gas. It is not something which you can cope with by relying on spiritualism. Death due to grenades thrown by the Israeli troops is nothing new in Palestine.
I saw ambulances going by with siren blaring. It was sheer hell. If an ambulance had not passed by, I, Tanaka should have been choked to death.

“We don’t care being shot” Desperate demonstration of Palestinians
[Gaza East=Kyodo Press] Young people headed toward the fence at the border with Israel, shouting“We don’t care being shot. We will return to the land of our country” and they fell down one after another after being fired at. On 14 when the Trump administration moved its Israeli embassy to Jerusalem and issued to the world a message saying “Holy City of Jerusalem is the capital of the Jewish people”, large-scale demonstrations against the U.S. and Israel were carried out in Gaza strip, autonomous areas of the Palestinians.
Snipers of the Israeli army waited for demonstrators with their guns pointed at them and gave a warning by firing at young people who tried to come close to the fence. We heard the sound of bullets nearby. Israeli drones flew above reporters collecting information behind the fence, women and children and dropped tear-gas canisters on them. Many citizens fell down due to a very irritating odor.
The Israeli army justifies their excessive use of force with a word of “homeland security.” However, Palestinian youths never stop walking.

#autonomous areas of the Palestinians#Gaza Israeli soldiers shot at here. Investigation of shooting at demonstrators is required in the UN but is interrupted by the U.S. This is what “Israeli security” the Abe administration highly evaluates is all about.

志葉さん。釈迦に説法だけど、望遠レンズ使ったら、貴兄が撃たれるよ。ロケット・ランチャーと間違われて。いずれにせよ、お気を付けて下さい。— 田中龍作 (@tanakaryusaku) 2018年5月14日
Mr. Shiba. It is preaching to the choir. If you use telescopic lens, they would mistakenly considered it to be a rocket launcher and shoot you. At any rate, be careful.
万が一、撃たれても同行のパレスチナ人記者が写真を回収してくれます。— 田中龍作 (@tanakaryusaku) 2018年5月14日
If you should be shot, a Palestinian reporter accompanying you will retrieve photos.
Mr. Shiba, I hope you will do your best to collect information on the event without anxiety.

In this manner, the U.S. has dragged Israel into war. It intends to leave the finishing tough to Russia.

In this manner, war started in the north and in the south simultaneously.
If Trump had not become a president, there would not have been war in either side.
