Prince William Comes to Israel Under a Foreign Office Cloud


The notoriously anti-Israel Foreign and Commonwealth Office (FCO) has thus moved seamlessly from colonial hatred of the Jewish state to anti-colonial hatred of the Jewish state. And of course, it goes without saying that it views President Trump - who is committed to defending Israel and upholding western cultural norms and national integrity in America - as a madman to be scorned, vilified and ignored.

His trip is supposed to be resolutely apolitical. Fat chance! His own itinerary released by his Kensington Palace office has already raised eyebrows. After visiting Jordan and Israel, it says he will spend time in "the Occupied Palestinian Territories" - the FCO's term - within which he will be briefed on Jerusalem's Old City and the Mount of Olives.
