President Trump's aide comment on West Bank shock Israel

President Trump's aide comment on West Bank shock Israel

The spat reportedly erupted during preparations for Trump's visit to the region next week.

McMaster's brief comment appeared to be consistent with long-standing U.S. policy that the status of Jerusalem is an issue to be decided in negotiations between Israel and the Palestinians. The former USA administration of Barack Obama was deeply opposed to Israel's expansion of the settlements and in December withheld its veto from a U.N. Security Council resolution condemning the policy.

The issue of the wall and the mosque is one of the most sensitive issues surrounding the Middle East peace process. The wall is a deeply holy site for the Jewish people and served as a marker for the first and second Temple Mount.

David Friedman, the controversial new US ambassador to Israer, has arrived in the country to take up his post, just days before a visit by US President Donald Trump.

Will the Celtics close out the Wizards in Game 6?
Boston fans chanted a naughty word toward Kelly Oubre Jr . on Wednesday night, and the Wizards fanbase was all up in arms over it. In the second quarter as Wall air-balled a floater and dipped to 1 for 7 from the floor, his second straight bad shooting start.

"The comments about the Western Wall were not authorized communication and they do not represent the position of the United States and certainly not of the president", the White House told the Israeli paper.

Trump is set to become the first US President to visit the wall on his upcoming trip, according to Israeli media.

The White House was forced to disavow comments by a U.S. official planning Trump's stop who claimed the Western Wall was in the West Bank, and not a part of Israeli territory. "This is nTterritory, but rather part of the West Bank". "I hope H.R. McMaster will retract his remarks swiftly", he added.

No Israeli leaders will join President Trump to the Western Wall.

McMaster added that Trump, who is also making stops in Saudi Arabia and The Vatican during his first trip overseas as president, is "going to the Western Wall mainly in connection with the theme to connect with three of the world's great religions". Dr. Yuval Steinitz, who serves as Israel's Minister of National Infrastructures, Energy and Water, leveled harsh criticism against the administration during an interview Monday. "And I had the opportunity to say some prayers". We had a wide ranging discussion about Russia, Israel, North Korea, Christian Persecution and much more. Every President since then - Republican and Democrat - has waived the embassy move every six months, citing national security concerns.

Palestinians see east Jerusalem as the capital of their future state, while Israel considers the entire city to be its undivided capital. They were also optimistic that the ambassador would break with years of US diplomatic protocol and pay a public visit to Beit El and other Israeli settlements in the West Bank, which Palestinians claim as the site of a future state.

Trump is scheduled to visit Saudi Arabia, Bethlehem in the Palestinian territories and the Vatican, the seat of the Catholic Church.
