The Western Wall in watch iZombie season 3 episode 7 online live streaming free the Old City of Jerusalem is part of the Israeli-occupied West Bank, an Israeli official said on Monday. Israel considers all of Jerusalem its undivided capital, an internationally unrecognized claim. The Western Wall, the holiest site of Jewish prayer, is located in part of the territory it captured in the 1967 Middle East War.
Israeli TV reported that during a preparatory meeting between US and Israeli officials, the Israelis were told that Trump’s visit to the West Wall was a private visit and that Israel had no mandate in the region and that it was not welcome to accompany Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu to Trump there.
Trump’s administration is sending mixed messages in its dealings with the Israeli right-wing government, which was hoping for a more sympathetic approach from the Republican president than his Democratic predecessor Barack Obama, whose relationship with her has been strained.
“We were shocked to announce that the western wall is located in a West Bank area,” the Netanyahu office official said.
“We are convinced that this statement is contrary to President Trump’s policy … Israel has made contact with the United States on this matter,” he said.
The White House did not respond to a request for comment.
The new US ambassador to Israel, David Friedman, stepped out of the diplomatic protocol by visiting the Western Wall on Monday.
The visit, which comes a week before the first foreign tour of Trump, coincided with a dispute between the two sides over the election pledge of Trump to move the US embassy from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem.
It is not usual for a new ambassador to visit the holy site hours after arriving in Israel.
The new ambassador, a hardline Jew, raised funds for a Jewish settlement in the occupied West Bank, which Israel occupied with East Jerusalem 50 years ago.
