Prince William shows why his visit to Israel was nothing to be impressed with

Britain's prince William came to visit Israel...and the PLO. In his visit to see the latter, he showed why it's no big deal he came at all:
Prince William, paying the first official British royal visit to the Palestinian Authority territories on Wednesday, told Palestinians they had not been forgotten and his trip to the West Bank was a “very powerful one”.

“My message tonight is that you have not been forgotten, it has been a very powerful experience to meet you and other Palestinians in the West Bank and to hear your stories,” the prince said in a speech at a garden party at the British Consulate General in Jerusalem.

“I hope that through my being here and understanding the challenges you face, the links of friendship and mutual respect between the Palestinian and British people can grow stronger.”

The prince traveled to the West Bank on Wednesday, spreading a message of peace as he met with the Palestinian Authority president and toured a Palestinian refugee camp.

The Duke of Cambridge was welcomed by an honor guard as he turned his attention to the Palestinians on the second day of his swing through the Holy Land. It is the first official visit to the area by a member of the royal family.

Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas Abbas appealed to the prince and the British people to support the Palestinian campaign for independence.

William, trying to steer clear of politics, praised what he called the close ties between Britain and the Palestinians.
So much, in fact, that he refused to meet Jerusalem mayor Nir Barkat in Jerusalem itself (also via Breitbart). So Barkat had to turn down any meeting at all, if William wouldn't recognize his validity as mayor. How is that "steering clear of politics"? The visit by William to Israel was not worth celebrating as a result.
