U.S. Ambassador to the United Nations Nikki Haley broke rank with the White House Wednesday by telling the Christian Broadcasting Network, “I believe that the Western Wall is part of Israel.”

Although Haley clarified she does “not know what the policy of the [Trump] administration is,” she reiterated her assertion, stating, “We’ve always thought that the Western Wall is part of Israel.”

In the same interview, Haley also drew a contrast with other administration officials by saying Israel’s capital city “should be Jerusalem” and that “the [U.S.] embassy should be moved to Jerusalem” from Tel Aviv. Secretary of State Rex Tillerson had expressed a more cautionary tone on the possible embassy move in an interview with NBC’s “Meet the Press” May 14, saying President Donald Trump “is being very careful to understand how such a decision would impact the peace process.”

Haley’s comments came in the wake of a diplomatic spat between Israeli and American officials, who are planning Trump’s May 22-23 visit to Israel. David Berns, political counselor at the U.S. Consulate in Jerusalem, reportedly told his Israeli counterparts the Western Wall “is not in your territory.” The Trump administration quickly disavowed the statement, but has stopped short of definitively saying the Western Wall belongs to Israel.

At a White House press conference Tuesday, National Security Adviser H.R. McMaster declined to say whether the U.S. considers the Western Wall to be part of Israel, saying the matter “sounds like a policy decision.”

Trump has indicated he is considering officially recognizing Jerusalem as Israel’s capital, but his current position on his election campaign pledge to move the U.S. embassy to Jerusalem remains unclear.

  1. So difficult for US officials to acknowledge the truth (except Nikki Haley). I think some of Trump’s advisers and spokespeople need to get an education about Jewish and World History, Jewish Religion and Culture.
    We need to see an unequivocal support for Israel and no more moral equivalency of a Sovereign Nation and fakestinian terrorists trying to murder and steal that land.

  8. Hi there! I realize this is somewhat off-topic however
    I needed to ask. Does running a well-established website like yours require a
    lot of work? I’m brand new to operating a blog however I do write in my diary everyday.
    I’d like to start a blog so I can easily share my experience
    and feelings online. Please let me know if you have any ideas
    or tips for brand new aspiring bloggers. Thankyou!

  9. Undeniably believe that that you stated. Your favourite reason appeared to be
    at the web the simplest thing to be mindful of. I say to you, I certainly get annoyed whilst other folks consider
    worries that they plainly don’t realize about.
    You controlled to hit the nail upon the top as neatly as outlined
    out the whole thing with no need side effect , other people
    could take a signal. Will likely be again to get more.

  10. Hi there, I discovered your blog by means of Google while
    looking for a related matter, your site got here up, it seems great.
    I have bookmarked it in my google bookmarks.
    Hi there, just became aware of your blog through
    Google, and found that it is really informative. I’m going to watch out for brussels.

    I will be grateful when you continue this in future.
    A lot of other folks will be benefited from your writing.

  11. If a person creates a great feature, they could always share it
    with everybody using that particular system. If your project is full of images, animations, and other storage space
    hogs, you’ll need to consider that. On windows machines,
    Microsoft MS SQL is installed, whereas Unix based hosting systems
    usually come with open source alternatives like My – SQL,
    Postgresql, Maria – DB among others.

  12. But it is important is to pick something that is comfortable to wear.
    The privacy available from the adult online dating sites is the one
    other reason why ladies nowadays prefer
    them. Men with minimal gynecomastia should go back to vigorous exercise about fourteen days postoperatively, while those undergoing more extensive procedures are needed
    to wait up to four weeks.
