What do you get when you cross an ambassador and a rock star at the Western Wall? Just another day in Israel’s excitement! That is indeed what happened on Monday afternoon as the Ambassador to Israel David Friedman landed in Israel and told reporters that he “wanted to come straight to the holiest place in the entire Jewish world, the Kotel Ha’ Maaravi, straight from the airport,.” Donald Trump will visit the Wall on May 22, making him the first sitting president in history, to ever visit the Wall.

Friedman’s entourage and Aerosmith singer, Tyler’s entourage bumped into each other and Friedman and Tyler exchanged some pleasantries and even discussed some Israeli politics, before going their separate ways.

 Tyler’s band, Aerosmith is set to kick off their farewell tour “Aero-Vederci Baby!” at Israel’s Yarkon Park in Tel Aviv, this coming Wednesday, 22 years after they first performed in Israel.
Aerosmith reportedly received a lot of push-back and death threats from BDS and anti-Israel trolls.
