Prince Charles may become the first senior member of the Royal Family to visit Israel, according to Eric Moonman, President of the Zionist Federation

“There will be a chance for a senior royal to go to Israel, although it’s unlikely to be the Queen because of her diary and the prominence she gives the Commonwealth,” Moonman said.  “So it falls to Prince Charles, or perhaps even Prince William and Princess Catherine.”

It is Prince Charles’ interest in the environment and Israel’s advancemenets in technology and the green sector, that might induce the prince to travel to the Jewish state.

“People who are close to him have told me he has kept abreast of countries which have made a real impression in that area,” Moonman said.

“Prince Charles has one or two Jewish people who he trusts and these are the people, combined with the right approach and a peaceful situation in Israel, who can make it possible.”

The Duke of Edinburgh and Prince Charles have both been to Israel, however they were to attend a burial and a funeral respectively, and the trips were not considered official visits.

  • I still don’t understand why Queen Elizabeth ll of England through all her reign has been restricted by the Foreign Office to ever visit ‘The Jewish State Of Israel’ yet on many occasions she has made ‘Royal-Visits’ to numerous Middle-Eastern and even one notable Maghrebian State (Morocco)is the F.O. so full of animosity towards Israel or is the real truth of the matter that they are afraid of hurting the feelings of the two to three million Asian British Muslims who in reality hate all Jews and especially Israel, whereby if they would give their blessing to the Monarch to go on such a visit would only generate further anti-British feelings throughout the Arab and Islamic world which could also put at risk British exports to those countries as well as whipping up hysteria & anger amongst their own Muslim populace in the UK. It is such a pity that her majesty will never be able visit Israel, as she would receive such a warm & hearty welcome that she would never forget.

    • The “queen” is a shape-shifting, 110% evil, alien-reptilian demon from hell. The Day of the LORD, and the “time of Jacob’s trouble” will prove it.

      BTW, the people who inhabit what you call “Israel” now are NOT descended from Jacob, Isaac, and Abraham. They are descendants of Kazars, Turks and Mongols whose fathers converted to the satanic cult known as “Judaism”. The Talmud is as evil as the Koran. Israel now is NOT the true Israel. Read Shlomo Sand’s book, “The Invention of the Jewish People” and get educated.

      • How dare you defame her Majesty Queen Elizabeth 11 of England, if you are a British citizen you should be tried in the highest court of law in the land for treason. her majesty Queen Elizabeth 11 of England and long shall she reign, is a most wonderful Queen.
        To conclude with my reply to your stupid analysis of that the Jewish people today are not real Jews according to the writings of the historian revisionist Shlomo Sands that the Jews all originate from Khazars, therefore they are but converts to Judaism. This is a complete fabrication of the truth , After the great dispersian

    As Berlin Prices Rise, Israelis Turn East for German Real-Estate Bargains

    JNS.org – Sonnenallee, a street in Berlin’s Neukölln district, looks like it comes straight out of an Arab city — so much so that it goes by the nickname “Gaza Strip.” Kebab and bakery shops are advertised in Arabic; men sit in men-only coffee shops; and bridal shop windows showcase glittery, not-so-stylish gowns. But take a random turn, and you’ll find a swath of bars, burger joints, and Indian restaurants where hip Berliners announce that they have arrived to urban coolness. […]

    A Theatrical Look at Diplomacy and the Oslo Accords (REVIEW)

    Is diplomacy worthwhile, even if the end result isn’t what we hoped for? That is the question, among many others, posed by the new play Oslo, by J.T. Rogers. Making its New York debut at Lincoln Center, the play examines the secret diplomatic process that led to the historic 1993 peace accords. The character of Shimon Peres makes an appearance onstage — and he, along with Yitzhak Rabin and Yasser Arafat, tower over the proceedings. But they mainly do so in absentia. Instead, […]

    Israeli Trailblazer Dean Kremer Brings Jewish Values to Nascent Pro Baseball Career

    JNS.org – Other than being part of the Los Angeles Dodgers organization, Sandy Koufax and Dean Kremer have something else in common: a respect for Jewish tradition. Koufax — who was recently ranked by ESPN as the best left-handed pitcher in Major League Baseball (MLB) history — decided not to pitch Game 1 of the 1965 World Series because the game fell on Yom Kippur. “I would do the same,” Kremer said in an interview. Last month, the 20-year-old Kremer became […]

    Will Laughs Lead to Love on Show About Orthodox Dating?

    To date or not to date? That is not the question for most Modern Orthodox singles in New York. The question is when will they find their future spouses, and when will their families stop nagging them about having babies? Inspired by the success of the Israeli show “Srugim,” Leah Gottfried, 25, decided she would create and star in her own show, “Soon By You.” “Dating is so serious already,” Gottfried said. “We wanted to take a lighter approach and laugh at the […]
