Report: Prince Charles Visit to Israel Scrapped by ‘Pandering’ British Foreign Office

The former commander of British forces in Afghanistan has decried the alleged cancellation of an official visit to Israel by Prince Charles later this year – which would have marked the first official visit by a member of the royal family since the creation of the Jewish state in 1948.

Col. Richard Kemp, a former commander of British forces in Afghanistan, told The Sun newspaper that the decision was an “insult to British war dead,” and accused the Foreign Office of being behind the decision. During the visit, Prince Charles, the heir to the throne, had been set to honor the 16,000 British and Commonwealth dead during the centenary of the World War 1 Palestine Campaign, as well as the 1917 Balfour Declaration in which the British declared their support for a “Jewish national home.”

Kemp, a vocal supporter of Israel, slammed the Foreign Office as a “camel corps” who were “pandering” to Arab dictators.

You may find some historical stuff here, but this does not really matter as humor is fairly timeless.
