Washington - Sen. Dianne Feinstein, D- Calif., said she was “deeply disappointed” in Nikki Haley, the U.S. ambassador to the United Nations, for stopping the U.N. Security Council from investigating Israeli actions on the border with the Gaza Strip.

“I’m deeply disappointed in Ambassador Haley’s decision to block a U.N. inquiry into yesterday’s events,” Feinstein, who is Jewish, said Tuesday in a statement. “Without question there should be an independent investigation when the lives of so many are lost.”

Israeli troops killed some 60 Palestinians attempting to breach the fence between Gaza and Israel on Monday, the same day that the United States dedicated its new embassy in Jerusalem.

The protests at the fence have been held weekly for close to two months, but intensified on the day of the embassy opening, leading to condemnations worldwide of Israel and the United States.

Haley used the threat of the U.S. veto on the Security Council to block proposals for an inquiry and berated the council for even considering the issue.

“I ask my colleagues here in the Security Council, who among us would accept this type of activity on your border?” Haley said.

“No one would,” she said. “No country in this chamber would act with more restraint than Israel has. In fact, the records of several countries here today suggest they would be much less restrained.”

Haley said that those who blame the embassy opening for the Gaza violence are “sorely mistaken.”

“The violence comes from those who reject the existence of the state of Israel in any location,” she said. “Such a motivation – the destruction of a United Nations Member State – is so illegitimate as to not be worth our time in the Security Council, other than the time it takes to denounce it.”

Feinstein called on protesters to “remain peaceful,” but appeared to lay much of the blame on the embassy opening and what she suggested was a lack of restraint by Israel.

“While protests must remain peaceful, Israeli forces must exercise greater restraint in the use of live ammunition,” she said. “President Trump’s decision to move the U.S embassy was a serious mistake that will reverberate throughout the region. U.S. recognition of Jerusalem as Israel’s capital should have been resolved in the context of broader peace negotiations where both sides benefit.”

Sen. Bernie Sanders, I-Vt., in a video posted on social media, also juxtaposed the embassy opening with the violence on the Gaza border. “The embassy move brought tensions to a boiling point,” the Sanders video said.

The video described the protests as “demanding an end to the ten-year blockade” Israel imposed on the Strip after a season of intensive rocket fire on Israel, “an end to the occupation, and the right to return to their former homes inside Israel.”

The implied acceptance of a Palestinian claim to “former homes inside Israel” is unusual for a senior U.S. lawmaker. Sanders, who in 2016 challenged Hillary Clinton for the Democratic presidential nomination, is the first Jewish candidate to win major party nominating contests.

“Young American Jewish activists protested the embassy move,” the video said, running footage of an IfNotNow protest in Washington DC on Monday.

The video said that Sanders and another 12 senators have written to U.S. Secretary of State Mike Pomepo urging him to take steps to improve the humanitarian situation in Gaza.

"Israeli troops killed some 60 Palestinians attempting to breach the fence "

Wrong they were terrorists attempting to breach the fence in order to kill and or kidnap israeli's. They were armed and had firebombs etc... Furthermore, Israel used force as a last resort. where there a few innocent 16 yr olds mixed in as shields? Sure but they were tangled with a bunch of trouble makers who were dangerous and armed.

And yes anyone who disputes this is a lair and should not be torlerared. These are facts and when jewish blood is at stake we have no tolernace for your fake news and lies. yes we can debate trump and russians and stormy all day. And I welcome that. But there is no debate about this issue. Case is closed.

VIN , please ban those idiots who have the chutzpa and audacity from posting misinformation and making jewish lives cheap. This is a jewish website and they have no place here. Let them post on al-jezzera.

She failed to gain the Democratic Party's endorsement in California for not being sufficiently "progressive". This is her answer.

Feinstein's remarks are further evidence that the Democratic party has lost its moorings as a centrist party. Formerly fringe socialist elements, Sanders being but the most prominent, are becoming the voice of the party. Pandering to this base, and using her Jewish identity as cover, is execrable.

In 1994, in Rwuanda, Africa, nearly 1,000,000 civilians were slaughtered within a three month period, without the international community doing, or saying anything. In Bosnia, Cambodia, Uganda, Burma, Indonesia, hundreds of thousands of civilians were victims of genocide. Early in the 20th century, the Turks slaughtered over 1.5 million Armenians. In Iraq and Afghanistan, there are suicide bombers who kill hundreds of people in a single incident; such acts go on with impunity, without hardly a whisper from the Arab League or the international community. Christians are beheaded by ISIS, others are drowned, burned alive, thrown off buildings, etc., and there are never any protests by the West. The Saudis routinely bomb and kill civilians in Yemen; Syria gasses, and bombs its citizens with impunity. Yet, anytime there is rioting in EY, and there are casualties on the Arab side, all of the hate Israel crowd, including the Feinsteins, Sanders, and the JINOS (Jews in name only), come out of the woodwork. I remember when Eichmann was hanged in 1962, there was retaliation in Latin America, whereby Jews were attacked. Yet, whenever Jews are victims in EY, the world blames the Jews!

I thought you were wrong about her not being Jewish, but then looked at Wiki:
"Feinstein was born Dianne Emiel Goldman[1] in San Francisco, to Betty (née Rosenburg), a former model, and Leon Goldman, a surgeon. Feinstein's paternal grandparents were Jewish immigrants from Poland. Her maternal grandparents, the Rosenburg family, were from Saint Petersburg, Russia.[7] While they were of German-Jewish ancestry,[8] they practiced the Russian Orthodox faith, as was required for Jews residing in Saint Petersburg.[7][9]"

Well Frankenstein, Hamas admitted that most of the dead were their own members. I won't be surprised if she is a mamzeres and Haley has some Jewish blood, because Haley sounds more Jewish than Frakenstein.

TO #21 Turkish President Erdoğan received members of Neturei Karta in a closed-to-press meeting in London on Tuesday – just after calling Israel a “terror state”.

The Orthodox Jewish group led by Elchonon Beck held a meeting with Erdoğan, Minister for EU Affairs and Chief Negotiator Ömer Çelik and Deputy Secretary General and Spokesperson of the Presidency Ibrahim Kalın in the Intercontinental Hotel that lasted for about half an hour, sources said.

Beck stated that Israel is the most dangerous country for Jewish people in the world today. He told Erdogan:

“Helping the Zionists is not in the interests of the Jewish people. If you want to help the Jews, come out and say loudly that you are against the state of Israel. We are against the occupiers. We want to bring peace to the area. As Jews, we pray for the complete dissolution of the Israeli state in a peaceful manner. We do not want two states either. We support the return of the Palestinian people. There Jews and Muslims can live together in peace.”
