Palestinian officials have said little about the embassy location because they are "horrified" by the initial U.S. decision to recognize Jerusalem as Israel's capital last December, says Wilson Center analyst Aaron David Miller, a former U.S. State Department advisor on Arab-Israeli negotiations.
Tens of thousands gathered at the frontier on Monday, some of them approaching Israel's border fence - a line Israeli leaders vowed Palestinians would not be allowed to breach. A total of 83 people are reported to have been killed since the start of the protests.
The protests are scheduled to culminate on Tuesday, the day Palestinians mourn as the "Nakba" or "Catastrophe" when, in 1948, hundreds of thousands of them were driven out of their homes or fled the fighting around Israel's creation.

"By moving our embassy to Jerusalem, we have shown the world once again that the United States can be trusted".
Thousands of Palestinians have been demonstrating along the border between Gaza and Israel for nearly a month in the lead up to the opening of the new US embassy in Jerusalem on Monday.
The U.S. Consulate in Jerusalem will serve as an interim office for the U.S. ambassador to Israel along with a small number of staff.
It's the most deaths in one day the area has seen since the summer of 2014, when more than 2,000 Palestinians died.
The first victim to be named was Anas Hamdan Qdeih, a 21-year-old, who was shot dead by Israeli forces east of Khan Younis, according to the Palestinian Health Ministry.
Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, Senior White House Advisers Jared Kushner and Ivanka Trump and Israeli President Reuven Rivlin applaud during the dedication ceremony of the new US embassy in Jerusalem, May 14, 2018.
Trump's daughter Ivanka and son-in-law Jared Kushner, along with Treasury Secretary Steve Mnuchin, led the USA delegation with a single message: Only Trump had the courage to act on what America has wanted for a long time. Roughly 800 guests were expected to attend.
The protests have been generally peaceful, but some young men have thrown stones at Israeli soldiers or tried to fly flaming kites over the border.
Trump's policy is a sharp departure from past USA administrations, which have tried to position America as a neutral party ready to broker a peace deal.
"The IDF (Israel Defense Forces) will act forcefully against any terrorist activity and will operate to prevent attacks against Israelis", the military said in a statement.
"If you're not prepared to recognize that Jerusalem is the capital of Israel and that's where the American Embassy should be, then you're operating on a completely different wavelength", White House national security adviser John Bolton told ABC's "This Week".
The killings have drawn worldwide criticism, but the United States has echoed Israel in accusing Gaza's ruling Hamas movement of instigating violence, an allegation it denies. It has praised the embassy move but said nothing publicly about the venue's territorial significance. "Had any other country done this It is hard to imagine Washington remaining quiet", Yousef Munayyer, executive director of the U.S. Campaign for Palestinian Rights, a Washington, D.C. -based coalition of organizations that oppose Israel's policies toward Palestinians, told Newsweek.
"President Trump's decision to move the embassy to Jerusalem affirms a great and simple truth: Jerusalem has been the capital of the Jewish people for the past 3,000 years".
Kusher also reiterated the US's commitment to helping find a peaceful end to the Israeli-Palestinian conflict.
