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

    Forthcoming Major Action Movies Inspired by Jewish Comic Artist Jack Kirby

    JNS.org – With the recent Oscars in the rearview mirror, Hollywood’s attention now shifts to the rest of this year’s big-screen lineup.

    When Torah Teaches Life and Life Teaches Torah (REVIEW)

    JNS.org – Rabbi Gordon Tucker spent the first 20 years of his career teaching at the Conservative movement’s Jewish Theological Seminary (JTS) and the next 20 years as the rabbi of Temple Israel Center in White Plains, N.Y. I confess that when I heard about the order of those events, I thought that Tucker’s move from academia to the pulpit was strange. Firstly, I could not imagine anyone filling the place of my friend, Arnold Turetsky, who was such a talented [...]

    Oscars 2015: Reflecting on Love at First Sight

    JNS.org – I’m in love, and have been for a long time. It’s a relationship filled with laughter, tears, intrigue, and surprise. It was love at first sight, back when I was a little girl—with an extra-terrestrial that longed to go home. From then on, that love has never wavered, and isn’t reserved for one, but for oh so many—Ferris Bueller, Annie Hall, Tootsie, Harry and Sally, Marty McFly, Atticus Finch, Danny Zuko, Yentl, that little dog Toto, Mrs. Doubtfire, [...]

    At the turn of the 21st century through today, American involvement in Middle Eastern politics runs through the Central Intelligence Agency.

Wilford methodically traces the lives and work of the agency’s three most prominent officers in the Middle East: Kermit “Kim” Roosevelt was the grandson of president Theodore Roosevelt, and the first head of [...]

    Anyone who spent time in the Jewish Catskills hotels – especially those like me, who returned for decades – must see the new documentary,”Welcome to Kutsher’s: The Last Catskills Resort.” Not only will the film transport you back to the glory days of your youth and thousands of memories, but it will also make you long for a world that is now lost forever. I returned to Kutsher’s one last time in the summer of 2009, but by then, the [...]

    JNS.org – Amid the numerous studies and analyses regarding Jewish American life, a simple fact remains: part-time Jewish education is the most popular vehicle for Jewish education in North America. Whenever and wherever parents choose Jewish education for their children, we have a communal responsibility to devote the necessary time and resources to deliver dynamic, effective learning experiences. The only way we can do this is by creating space for conversations and knowledge-sharing around innovative new education models. That also [...]
