Netanyahu Criticizes Itinerary for Prince William’s Visit: ‘Jerusalem Is Israel’s Eternal Capital’


Israeli Prime Minister Bibi Netanyahu has leveled pointed criticism of British Prince William’s planned visit to the Jewish state.

The official itinerary for the trip refers to Yerushalayim as “part of the occupied Palestinian territories,” a determination which has rankled Israeli officials. According to news website Walla, Netanyahu was asked about the reference by Yerushalayim Affairs Minister Ze’ev Elkin at the government’s weekly cabinet meeting on Sunday.

The prime minister replied, “Jerusalem is Israel’s eternal capital.”

Elkin had previously criticized the royal designation of Yerushalayim, saying, “United Jerusalem has been the capital of Israel for 3,000 years and no distortion in the tour itinerary can change that reality.”

Prince William is scheduled to arrive in Israel today as part of a tour of the Middle East. He is expected to meet with Netanyahu, as well as Palestinian Authority President Mahmoud Abbas.

Stops during his visit to Yerushalayim will include a meeting with Netanyahu, as well as Israel’s president, Revuven Rivlin.

William is also scheduled to visit Yad Vashem and the grave of his great-grandmother Princess Alice in Yerushalayim.

  1. It’s sad that the inborne haterd and bias the palace has for Jews in general and Israel in particular exists. The Brits are not friends of the Jews – that goes for for many hundreds of years. Just look at their recent legislation re: shchita, mila etc. Now, most recently, is the Jewish education system. Let their land be overrun by arabs. They deserve it.

  2. I would bet this is one of the reasons a 90+Queen of England is not giving up her throne, between her son, Charles and now William and their attitude towards the world. By now she should be retired and giving the reins up to the successor, but fear of what they will do to England and their alliances would shatter and the Arabs maybe the successor.

  3. Prince Williams is a descendant of Queen Elizabeth and Prince Phillip. This should tell you enough about it.

    And Hashem hardened the heart of Queen Elizabeth and wouldn’t let her step foot in the Holy Land. There’s good reason for it. She has too much tumah on her hands. If you want the creeps, read up about the order to arrest Queen Elizabeth in 2013 by 6 judges of the International Common Law Court of Justice in Brussels for her “good deeds” committed on Oct 10, 1964 in a Canadian Indian Catholic school in Kamloops, British Columbia.
