U.S. Congress speaker Boehner to visit Israel this month

JERUSALEM (Reuters) - Republican John Boehner, the speaker of the U.S. Congress and an ardent backer of Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, will visit Israel at the end of this month, diplomatic sources said on Friday.

The visit will follow Netanyahu's surprise election victory this week and his speech to Congress earlier this month on Boehner's invitation, an event that aggravated the White House and drew sharp criticism.
