Presumptive Republican presidential nominee Mitt Romney will visit Israel this summer, the New York Times reported Monday. During his trip, the former Massachusetts governor is set to meet with Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu.

“[Romney is] a strong friend of Israel and we’ll be happy to meet with him,” Ron Dermer, Netanyahu’s senior adviser, told the Times. “We value strong bipartisan support for Israel and we’re sure it will only deepen that.”

Netanyahu and Romney first met as consultants for the Boston Consulting Group, where they were said to bond over their shared view of the world. This year, the prime minister reportedly called Romney on Super Tuesday to brief him on the situation in Iran.

“We can almost speak in shorthand,” Romney has said. “We share common experiences and have a perspective and underpinning which is similar.”

This will be Romney’s fourth visit to Israel. He will also meet with Palestinian Authority Prime Minister Salam Fayyad and other top officials on both sides.

Mitt going to Israel?

Good.. Maybe he can talk with them about medical cannabis.. he was so arrogant/ignorant about it last month.

See, the Israeli's are on the forefront of cannabis research and are insisting cannabis be a FIRST line of defense before strong and deadly narcotics (their government even grows it for the patients). They also, like Europe, have the prescribed "Sativex' that is being approved in the US as we speak FOR MS (Mitts wife has MS), but at 18 dollars a one time spray, and you have to spray several times a day, well.. cheaper to make your own.

Anyway Mitt, instead of getting snarky next time a reporter asks you a question a thinking man should at least be able to answer honestly, instead of saying 'Don't we have something important to talk about', maybe you might want to consider it aint all about you.

Please, for God's sake Mitt, talk to the Israeli's.. you need schooling bad on this subject. 1960's are over
