Default Western Wall is part of Israel US Ambassador to the UN Nikki Haley

Ambassador Haley: Western Wall is part of Israel US Ambassador to the UN Nikki Haley

Haley restated her support for moving the US embassy to Jerusalem and stated clearly that “the Western Wall is part of Israel.”

US Ambassador to the United Nations (UN) Nikki Haley made it clear that in her opinion, the Western Wall in Jerusalem belongs to Israel.

In an interview with CBN‘s The Brody File on Tuesday, Haley was emphatic on the issue, stating, “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 is how we’ve always seen it and that’s how we should pursue it…we’ve always thought the Western Wall was part of Israel.”

The statement was made as US National Security Advisor H.R. McMaster would not clarify this issue, saying it was a “policy decision,” and amid a report that a US consulate official told Israeli officials that the Western Wall is not theirs

In Washington, after being pressed on the matter, White House Press Secretary Sean Spicer stuck with ambiguity.

“The Western Wall is obviously one of the holiest sites in Jewish faith. It’s clearly in Jerusalem,” he told reporters during the daily briefing.

“It’s an issue that’s had serious consideration. It will be a topic that’s going to be discussed during the President’s trip between the parties that he meets with. I think this stems from a comment that was made yesterday and which was not the policy of the United States,” Spicer said.

Consistent Policies

During the interview, Haley restated her support for moving the US embassy from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem.

The capital should be Jerusalem and the embassy should be moved to Jerusalem, because [Israel’s] government is in Jerusalem. So much of what goes on is in Jerusalem. We have to see that for what it is. The tricky part is where the Palestinians come in on this and where the Israelis comes in on this,” Haley said.

“We know the Israelis do not want to give on Jerusalem at all and we have to see how strong the Palestinians stand on that. That is your touchy part. Is Jerusalem even on the table? I don’t know that it is.”

Haley has remained consistent with her support on such a crucial move.

During a Senate Foreign Relations Committee hearing in January, she declared that she “absolutely” backs the embassy move because that’s what Israel and congressional Republicans want.
