Ivanka [Trump]...posted about what was undoubtedly a moving personal moment on her social media channels:
Unfortunately for Ivanka, or whoever runs her social media accounts, she gave expression to a common misconception about the Western Wall.

It's actually Israel's government policy that is at fault.
