Days Before First Royal Visit, Netanyahu Corrects Prince William Over ‘Occupied Territories’ Reference to Jerusalem

Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu issued a veiled rebuke to the United Kingdom Sunday less than 48 hours before Prince William is scheduled to begin the first-ever official visit to Israel by a member of the British royal family, after Kensington Palace listed Jerusalem’s Old City as “Occupied Palestinian Territories” in the itinerary for the trip which will also take in the Palestinian Authority and Jordan.

“Jerusalem is our capital for all eternity,” Netanyahu said when asked about Kensington Palace’s declaration by Jerusalem Affairs Minister Zeev Elkin.

Jewish Home MK Bezalel Smotrich went a step further, calling upon Netanyahu to prevent the British royal from visiting the Old City as part of his visit to the Palestinian Authority and as long as the Palace defines it as occupied Palestinian territory.

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