Press Release

Washington, D.C. - Congressman Mark Meadows (R-NC) released the following statement:

“National Security Advisor H.R. McMaster’s remarks today regarding whether or not the Western Wall is part of Israel mark a concerning shift in the policy of this administration. There is no question that both geographically and historically the Western Wall has been part of the state of Israel. As one of Israel’s closest allies, the United States has an obligation to stand by them and defend their rightful claim to one of the holiest sites in the nation of Israel. I hope H.R. McMaster will retract his remarks swiftly.”
