A U.S. congressman says he's seeking clarification from Israel after an apparent snub by a top Foreign Ministry official.

Rep. William Delahunt of Massachusetts is touring the region with a congressional delegation hosted by J Street, a liberal Jewish lobbying group that describes itself as pro-Israel and pro-peace.

Israeli Deputy Foreign Minister Danny Ayalon has questioned J Street's commitment to the Jewish state. J Street says it sought a meeting with Israeli diplomats but was turned down.

Delahunt told a Tel Aviv news conference Wednesday the alleged rebuff was "very disturbing" and "an inappropriate way to treat elected representatives of Israel's closest ally."

The Foreign Ministry would not say whether any meetings were scheduled with Ayalon.
