US condemns Palestinian claim on Western Wall

Published: 12.01.10, 00:12 / Israel News

The Obama administration is strongly condemning a Palestinian official's claim that the Western Wall in the Old City of Jerusalem has no religious significance for Jews and is actually Muslim property.

 

The State Department said Tuesday that the United States rejects the comments as "factually incorrect, insensitive and highly provocative." Spokesman P.J. Crowley said statements of that kind damage US efforts to revive stalled Israeli-Palestinian peace talks and could incite violence. He said neither side should do anything to prejudice the negotiations. (AP)
