A former director of the US Central Intelligence Agency (CIA) held US President Donald Trump and Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu responsible Israel’s massacre of Palestinians in Gaza on Monday.
John Brennan, who was the head of the CIA between March 2013 and January 2017, tweeted that the “deaths in Gaza result of utter disregard of Messers Trump & Netanyahu for Palestinian rights & homeland.”
He went on to critique moving the US embassy to Jerusalem and explained that President Trump has “destroyed” the US peacemaker role.
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.
