WWS Reacts: U.S. Embassy Moved to Jerusalem, Protests Spark
The United States moved its embassy from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem this morning, sparking protests by Palestinians who attempted to cross the border fence between Israel and Gaza. Israeli soldiers responded; to date, more than 50 people have been killed and 1,000 have been injured.
Amb. Daniel C. Kurtzer, the S. Daniel Abraham Visiting Professor in Middle Eastern Policy Studies at Princeton’s Woodrow Wilson School of Public and International Affairs, conducted interviews on the subject. Below is a compilation of his media appearances.
Following a 29-year career in the U.S. Foreign Service, Kurtzer retired in 2005 with the rank of career-minister. From 2001 to 2005, he served as the U.S. ambassador to Israel and, from 1997 to 2001, he served as U.S. ambassador to Egypt.
