Speaking at the opening of the new US embassy in Jerusalem, Jared Kushner made a passing reference to Monday's carnage in the Gaza Strip, where at least 52 Palestinian protesters were shot and killed by Israeli security forces in the worst violence there in nearly four years.

Scarborough spoke as the news station aired images of the first daughter and Kushner smiling and speaking about the embassy opening, juxtaposed with photographs of combat and bloodshed in Gaza, where Israeli military forces reportedly killed 58 Palestinians.

Journalist David Ignatius, a guest on the show, reiterated that the contrast of the images "will shock people in the Middle East, should be a shocking contrast for people all over the world".

The new USA embassy opened in Jerusalem while in Gaza, roughly 50 miles away, there were deadly clashes between Israeli soldiers and Palestinians.

The feedback and the visuals of Kushner and different high United States officers - together with Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin and the President's daughter Ivanka Trump - on the embassy opening will additional solidify the Trump administration's method to peace as one that's extra involved with backing up Israel than enjoying the position of mediator between Israeli and Palestinian leaders.

Eventually, though, the real Jared Kushner made an appearance. The headline reads, "Daddy's Little Ghoul".

Kushner didn't ignore the developments in Gaza, saying, "these frightening violence are a part of the issue and never a part of the answer".

At least 58 Palestinians died and more than 2,700 were wounded.

"They don't care", his co-host Mika Brzezinski interjected.

It was the bloodiest day in the Israeli-Palestinian conflict since a 2014 Gaza war.

Meanwhile, this week marks the 70th anniversary of the Nakba, or "catastrophe" in Arabic, which commemorates Palestinian displacement following the Israeli declaration of independence in 1948.
