Royal first as Prince William set to make official visit to Israel, Palestine and Jordan
The first ever official royal visit to Israel and the Occupied Palestinian Territories will be made by Prince William this summer, Kensington Palace has said in an announcement that is already causing diplomatic tensions in the region. The Prince will also visit Jordan.
The Queen has never visited Israel or the Palestinian territories.
The Duke of Cambridge has never been to the region before and will be going without his wife Katherine, who is due to give birth to her third child in April....

The organizations that have traditionally led on advocacy for Israel, like AIPAC, have always prized bipartisanship, recognizing that the pendulum of American politics swings both ways and that Israel never benefits from being used as a partisan political football....
I have to agree, Prince Harry doesn't have much common sense, as was shown when he wore a Nazi uniform to a party when he was younger. Now that past event might have made him more welcome in the Palestinian areas, however.
Anyway, there will be a tug-of-war over William between the Israelis and the Palestinians. He's going to earn his money!

Let's pray whilst there, he offers a grovelling apology for the UK voting agains Israel in the UN. Whilst I have some respect for young William, I wouldn't trust his brother Harry as far as I could throw him..
in the whole of Israel, with the Jews totally expelled, and the Christians as persecuted second class "dhimmi" citizens, subject of course to Sharia law and all its consequences. All Jews and non-Muslims would of course be totally banned from the Temple Mount, and even the Old City.
This is basically what the whole UN, EU, Foreign Office, and despite President Trump, the US Department of State actually desires, along with much of the professing Christian Church, including many evangelicals who are sold out to Replacement Theology.
Basically, what this means is that the British Foreign Office, has for its own nefarious reasons,(rather like your US Secretary of State Office), at last permitted a senior member of the Royal Family to visit Israel, (but that of course means that they must visit East Jerusalem, Judea and Samaria, aka by the Foreign Office and the UN, as the "Occupied Palestinian Territories"), and show deference to the "Palestinian" leaders and their propaganda.
No member of the Royal Family was ever allowed to go there before, since the establishment of the State of Israel in 1948.
I believe that Prince Phillip, the Duke of Edinburgh, the Queen's husband and consort, wanted to go there many years ago when he was a much younger man, as I believe his devoutly Greek Orthodox mother was buried in Jerusalem, but the Foreign Office did not permit it.
Our Foreign Office is stoutly pro-Arab, and apparently apart from a very quick blip in 1917 with Balfour and his famous Declaration, which they have always been sorry about afterwards, always has been, as is your US Department of State, still stuffed with Obama appointees, and both are still committed to the mad "two state solution", as the "Palestinians" only actually want a one state solution, an Arab Sharia Muslim Palestinian state on the who
Youth in Asia, the royal family carries out caught a few functions that the UK finds quite useful -- could just some plain bureaucrats do much the same thing? Probably. However, the British so far like the royal family for what they are doing, there is nothing unbiblical about a monarchy, and they make the British happyâť— I have no problem with them and I'm not paying for the Royals đź‘Ť
