White House Chief of
Staff Rahm Emanuel arrived in Israel with his family on Friday for the
bar mitzva of his son. Emanuel is likely to
meet with Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu and

Channel 1 showed video of Emanuel arriving Friday. Ynet reported that he
had first gone to Eilat and then traveled to Jerusalem, where he will
be staying for a few days.

activists threatened to disrupt the celebration to protest the Obama
administration’s policies on Israel.
