Obama Planning First Visit to Israel as President

Ad Feedback

President Obama is planning his first trip to Israel since taking office in 2008.

The visit is planned for this spring but the White House hasn't released the dates or itinerary.

Obama last visited Israel when during his 2008 campaign. But his lack of visiting the Jewish state during his first term as president has drawn criticism from some pro-Israel groups who say the administration isn't supportive of the United States' closest ally in the Middle East.

The president did visit Arab countries in the region during his first term, including Egypt, Saudi Arabia and Turkey.
