The 5th of June marked the anniversary The Six Day War when Israel annexed Gaza, the West Bank and East Jerusalem. Thousands of protestors marched against Israeli occupations to mark the day since the announcement by US President Donald Trump that the US embassy in Tel Aviv will be move to Jerusalem. The Israeli-Gaza border has seen day on day protests, which has been met with violence by Israel, shooting unarmed protestors and reporters who get to close to the border.
During the 6 Day War Israel, which was a fraction in size than what it is today, launched a surprise attack on its Arab neighbors: Syria, Egypt and Jordan, Seizing land that it continues to claim as its own today. The United Nations has repeatedly stated that this land is illegally occupied. Because of the mass divisions within the Middle East, Israel has had no real threat or reason to give back this occupied land.
Israel for years has portrayed itself as the victim and said it was just defending itself from terrorist or countries that have threatened to destroy it. But with the level of protests, how long can Israel keep the moral high ground, how long before other countries and the UN make Israel accountable for its actions.
