Obama to visit Israel in spring
Posted on February 5, 2013 by Laura Rozen
President Obama is planning to visit Israel this spring, the White House confirmed to Al Monitor Tuesday.
“When the President spoke with Prime Minister Netanyahu on January 28, they discussed a visit by the President to Israel in the spring,” NSC spokesman Tommy Vietor said by email Tuesday, in response to a query.
“The start of the President’s second term and the formation of a new Israeli government offer the opportunity to reaffirm the deep and enduring bonds between the United States and Israel and to discuss the way forward on a broad range of issues of mutual concern, including Iran and Syria,” Vietor said. “Additional details about the trip – including the dates of travel – will be released at a later time.”
Obama will also travel to the West Bank and Jordan.

4. Speaking of Apartheid Israel
Maybe the US should stop giving the Zionist free money, weapons and Intel until they stop their war crimes (torture, murder) against the Palestinians. Besides the US pays more for the Israeli war crime machine than Israelis do. Even General Petraeaus says they are working against US interests.
