The office of Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu has announced that “actions taken yesterday at the Shepherd Hotel were carried out by private parties and in accordance with Israeli law. The government of Israel had nothing to do with the events. One should not expect the State of Israel to forbid Jews to purchase private properties in Jerusalem.” The announcement was given in response to the statement by U.S. Secretary of State, Hilary Clinton, that the demolition of the Shepherd Hotel in the eastern part of the city damages the peace process.
