Bahrain Group Visits Israel Amid Arab Furor Over Yerushalayim


Bahrain has sent a group of political and religious figures to Israel to demonstrate the Gulf kingdom’s commitment to religious pluralism and its intention to deepen ties with the Jewish state, an Israeli cabinet member said.

The 24-member delegation arrived last week after President Donald Trump recognized Yerushalayimas Israel’s capital, a move condemned across the Arab world. Israeli Communications Minister Ayoob Kara, who met the group in Yerushalayim and called the timing of their visit coincidental, said Sunday he plans to visit Bahrain in the coming months.
