White House press secretary expresses concern about desecration of Jewish Cemetery in Vilnius

WASHINGTON D.C., September 2020 - White House press secretary Kayleigh McEnany in an interview with Dr. Anthony Harper, reporter for Newsrael and the Christiaan Newspaper Association, expressed her concern about the proposed development of a conference center on the Sports Palace, which is located in the Shnipishok cemetery in Vilnius, Luthuania. (Full details.)

The decision to develop the grounds has left the international Jewish community angry about the proposed desecration which activists are contesting. Kayleigh McEnany's sentiments are an echo of a statement which was made by Kellyanne Conway who said on the proposed conference center development by the Lithuanian government, "President Trump is appalled by the desecration of all Jewish cemeteries."
