[Ed. – As the article says, other U.S. officials are laboring to adhere to a different — traditional — less categorical line. (Which incidentally has been since 1948 that Jerusalem is a city under international custodianship and protection, whose status is subject to negotiation in the Arab-Israeli “Peace Process.”) It’s a relief to see a U.S. official willing to simply say what Haley has said, however.]
U.S. Ambassador to the United Nations Nikki Haley said Tuesday that the Western Wall is part of Israel, something other Trump administration officials would not unequivocally state the same day.
In an interview with The Brody File on CBN News, Haley said she didn’t know what the administration’s official policy was on the matter but offered her opinion.
“I don’t know what the policy of the administration is, but I believe the Western Wall is part of Israel, and I think that that’s how we’ve always seen it and that’s how we should pursue it,” Haley said. “I’m not real sure what happened with that issue, but I know they’re trying to fix that … We’ve always thought that the Western Wall was part of Israel.”
