Come Again? Prince William’s Israel Itinerary Refers To Old City Yerushalayim As ‘Occupied Palestinian Territories’

13

The itinerary of Britain’s Prince William in his visit to Israel will include a visit to the Old City of Yerushalayim, which the document refers to as “Occupied Palestinian Territories,” a characterization that set off criticism in Israel.

Yerushalayim Affairs Minister of Knesset Ze’ev Elkin called the reference “regrettable,” and said “United Jerusalem has been the capital of Israel for 3,000 years and no distortion in the tour itinerary can change that reality.”

Elkin recently announced that he will be running for the position of Yerushalayim mayor in the upcoming elections in October.

Prince William will first travel to Jordan on June 24, arriving in Israel on a visit that will last until June 27, at which point “the program will shift to its next leg, the Occupied Palestinian Territories,” including a “short briefing on the history and geography of Jerusalem’s Old City from a viewing point at the Mount of Olives” on June 28.

According to the itinerary for the June 24-28 regional visit, William—also known as the Duke of Cambridge—will travel first to Jordan, followed by Israel on June 25-27.

Stops during the Old City visit may include the Har Habayis, the Har Habayis, the Church of the Holy Sepulchre, and the Church of John the Baptist, though the official itinerary did not elucidate.

William will also meet with Israeli Prime Minister Bibi Netanyahu and President Reuven Rivlin, and make a stop at the Yad Vashem Holocaust Memorial Museum.

In Ramallah, William will meet with Palestinian Authority leader Mahmoud Abbas.

  1. First of all, William and that whole “royal” family, is nothing. Mamesh worthless. They’ve done absolutely nothing to deserve any sort of kavod. They are just a bunch of dysfunctional people who don’t work and party all day. They live off the fat of the land. The dumb British taxpayer supports these laidigers.
    The British soldiers were responsible for allowing the bloodbath massacre in Chevron in 1929. They allowed the Arab mob to murder Jews indiscriminately.

  2. British general John Glubb led the Arab Legion during Israel’s War of Independence, scoring the only military victory over Israel and expelling all Jews from eastern Yerushalayim. Glubb was given awards and recognition by Great Britain for the part he played in fighting the Jews. Subsequently, Britain was one of the only countries in the world to recognize Jordan’s annexation of the West Bank and East Yerushalayim.
    Given this, why would we be surprised that Britain continues to refuse any recognition of Israel’s claim to East Yerushalayim?

  3. the royal family will not be talking to high when the Muslims start taking over the country and the migrants start filling in spaces, for look what is happening in London right now with a Muslim mayor. Why do you think the Queen hasn’t retired yet for at her age she is still there. Maybe she fears who will take over.

  4. Tribulation.

    The war signs. English is divine boredom.
    Very elect. The runny nanny has pampers to protect. America just dad does.

    Suggested.

  5. This idiot dressed up in a SS stormtrooper costume, in public. Despite the harm that the Nazis caused his homeland – Great Brittan – he was happy wearing it because of what it means for Jews. He is simply an idiot.
