In a bitter diplomatic incident, a senior member of the US delegation making preparations for Donald Trump’s visit to Israel next week angrily rejected a request that Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu accompany the president when he visits the Western Wall, and then sniped at his Israeli counterparts that the Western Wall is “not your territory. It’s part of the West Bank,” Israeli television reported on Monday night.
An official at the Prime Minister’s Office confirmed the report, telling the Times of Israel that Israeli officials were “shocked” by the comments and have asked the Trump administration about the incident.
Really? That's sheer wishful thinking on Bibi's part, I'd say.The official said that Netanyahu is certain that the comment does not reflect President Trump’s policy...
Me? I wouldn't bank on it not reflecting Trump's policy (which, admittedly, can change from moment to moment).
