Knesset Chairman Reuven Rivlin said Sunday that the prime minister must clarify to the United States that “some things are part of Israel’s heart and soul” and that “there are requests that cannot be answered.”

Rivlin was referring to American condemnation of an Israeli announcement made last week that said 1,600 houses will be built in Jerusalem’s Ramat Shlomo neighborhood.

“Israel has red lines, and dividing Jerusalem is one of them,” Rivlin told Israel Radio.

Rivlin also rebuffed Palestinian claims against the reopening of the Hurva synagogue in the Jewish Quarter of Jerusalem’s Old City. He is expected to be the main speaker at the synagogue’s dedication.
