Secretary of State Rex Tillerson started a multi-country tour of the Middle East on Sunday. A key US ally, though, is conspicuously absent from his itinerary.
The trip was first announced this week with stops in Jordan, Turkey, Lebanon, Egypt, and Kuwait. But Middle East experts questioned why Tillerson was skipping Israel.
Former US ambassador to Israel Dan Shapiro tweeted, "The consistent absence of the Secretary of State [from] Israel is probably unprecedented."
Shapiro called Tillerson not stopping in Israel a "mistake." He tweeted it's "yet another blow to Tillerson's credibility as an authoritative voice for US policy."
