President Obama discussed plans to visit Israel this spring during a recent phone call with Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, the White House said Tuesday.

Obama brought up the travel plans during a Jan. 28 call with Netanyahu, National Security Council spokesman Tommy Vietor said. “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.

The trip would be Obama's first to Israel since the summer of 2008, when he visited as the Democratic presidential candidate.

Would be a real shame if Iran or al Qaeda ambushed Obama and tried to Jake it look like Iand did it. That would really get the Left angry at Israel.
(al Qaeda are you reading this?)..../s

Makes sense: Israel must suffer a plague, then it celebrates Passover.

I bet it coincides with his kids spring break. He wants them to see where he and his army will fight the last battle.

It is time for another family junket on our dollar.

Do not let hussein in!

I can not encourage people enough to watch the timeline shown in the teaching Daniel Unsealed 119 Ministries. It lays it all out showing the Blood Moon tetrads and solar eclipses on the Feast Days of the Lord. It’s all lining up.

And Reform Rabbi's will mention it with pride, etc etc., and the service I will attend I will have to drink way before we recline, or duct tape my head to keep from exploding... I hate to be cynical, but this is to keep this voting block aboard and to garner dollars for 2014...

His first trip there as POTUS. He never visited during his first term. And before he goes there, he’s going to stop in Saudi Arabia, Turkey, Egypt and Jordan, most likely doing a lot of bowing along the way.

Any bets he doesn't combine this with his spring trip to Africa. Why fly once when you can fly twice. Wonder where Michelle will be traveling. Where else can he go this spring, and why is he wasting winter on places like Las Vegas and Minnesota when the Carribean is calling. Since he likes warm weather, I wonder why he doesn't visit the Carribean on occasion.
