Romney’s Western Wall note removed

Kotel authorities conceal message in attempt to avoid its publication

A note left in a crack in the Western Wall Sunday by Republican presidential candidate Mitt Romney has been removed by officials of the Western Wall Heritage Foundation and placed in a different location of the Kotel.

The unusual move was executed in order to keep the note away from prying eyes and protect the former governor’s privacy, the Arutz 7 website reported.

According to the report, site authorities wished to avoid a repeat of the publication the note left by Barack Obama prior to his being elected president.

In 2008, a note left in the Wall by then-senator and presidential candidate Obama was removed and published by Israeli newspaper Maariv.
