REPORT: Bibi Asked Mitt to be in J’lem on T”B; Invited him to Breaking of Fast

During discussions about the trip over the last month, advisers to Romney and Israeli prime minister Benjamin Netanyahu discussed the appropriateness of a Romney visit to Israel on this date. But Netanyahu, THE WEEKLY STANDARD has confirmed from top aides in Jerusalem and Boston, encouraged Romney to be in Jerusalem on this solemn day, one that recalls the tragedies of Jewish history and calls to mind current threats to the Jewish people. Indeed, THE WEEKLY STANDARD can report that Prime Minister and Mrs. Netanyahu have invited the Romneys to join them for the traditional meal breaking the fast following sundown after Tisha B’Av. – Weekly Standard
