This week we saw the U.S. Embassy in Israel open its new location in Jerusalem. And with all the fanfare of a true real-estate deal, members of the Trump family bearing nepotistic White House titles were present speaking in front of a choir of evangelicals in a spectacle which Rousseau might have called vain ceremony.

Acting in concert, the U.S. Ambassador to the United Nations, Nikki Haley, defended Israel’s violence at the Gaza border and commended their “restraint” in the backdrop of the highest death toll seen in recent history. She then proceeded to walk out as the floor turned to the Palestinian diplomat. 60 killed, over 2000 injured; Nikki out. With envoys like this, no need to pull out of UNESCO, or The Paris Climate Agreement.

To this occasion we invoke the exhibition Power to the People and bring to light some of the photo journalists working the front, including Tanya Habjouqa who was among the injured this past week in Gaza.
