Nikki Haley Says Western Wall Belongs To Israel — No Matter What U.S. Policy Says

(JTA) — U.S. Ambassador to the United Nations Nikki Haley said in an interview that the Western Wall belongs to Israel and Israel’s capital should be in Jerusalem — regardless of what U.S. policy says.

Haley made the comments during an interview with Christian Broadcasting Network’s David Brody in the wake of reports that a Trump administration official, responding to a request that Israeli officials accompany the U.S. president when he visits the Western Wall, replied that the Western Wall “is not your territory.”

“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,” Haley said in a video clip posted on the CBN website. “We’ve always thought the Western Wall was part of Israel.”
