Why java does not support multiple inheritance?

Java doesnt support multiple inheritance because of the diamond problem . Java is a language which makes things simple . C++ supports multiple inheritance . Multiple inheritance creates ambiguity . 

For ex:
           class A { } 

          class B extends A{ } 
          class C extends A { } 
          class D extends B , C  { }   X This creates ambiguity , from which class the methods of A should be called .
