The heat is on, yet Israel can still find reason to bask in the sunshine in this month of May. The State of Israel is in the midst of celebrating its Platinum Homecoming Anniversary and the gifts just keep on coming. First, America opened its Embassy in the State's capital, Jerusalem, and now Russia refusing to be outdone has sent Roman Abramovich via London. The Russian Jewish billionaire and sole owner of Chelsea Football Club was made an Israeli citizen yesterday, and will naturally be residing in the “City That Plays”, Tel Aviv.

It appears the British government was in a perpetual state of delay in issuing Mr. Abramovich a visa - so the man with the calm blue eyes turned around and walked home.
