GOP Lawmakers to Visit Israel

Seven Republican U.S. congressmen have accepted an invitation from World Likud chairman Danny Danon to visit Israel this month.

Among those who will be making the trip are the co-chairs of the Republican Israel Caucus, Peter Roskam of Illinois and Doug Lamborn of Colorado. They will be joined by Rep. Jim Jordan of Ohio, the chairman of the Republican Study Committee, which advances a conservative social and economic agenda in the House of Representatives.

The congressmen will attend discussions at the Knesset, hold meetings throughout the country and take a helicopter flight over the West Bank, Israel Hayom reported.

Others heading to Israel at the behest of Danon, who also is the chairman of the Knesset Committee for Immigration, Absorption and Diaspora Affairs, are Reps. John Flemming of Louisiana, Louie Gohmert of Texas, Randy Forbes of Virginia and John Carter of Texas.
