“Pictures: Prince William violated the Al-Aqsa courtyards with a tight guard and security mobilization of the Occupation police, inside the occupied Old City of Jerusalem.”

[Selected Comments:]
– “By the way his visit was specifically to east Jerusalem, occupied lands, and not the boundaries of Jerusalem the capital of Israel as the Jews claim and wish for…His visit is more support for the people of Jerusalem and less a violation.”
– “Why violate? Waqf people were with him and took a selfie together.”

“In honor of Prince William’s visit, here’s a memento from Albert Edward, Prince of Wales’, visit here in 1862. He’s lying against the trunk of a large pine tree – ‘Gottfried of Bouillon’ – which had been in the yard of the Rockefeller Museum until it died at the ripe old age of about 260 years old. I couldn’t find the photographer’s name.” [Picture in comments below]
