When Paula Met Peres

shimon peres paul abdul

Singer Paul Abdul is here in Israel as a guest of the Tourism Ministry. She is also reportedly going to celebrate her bat mitzvah at the Western Wall, albeit more than a few years too late.

Many people were surprised to hear that Paula is Jewish, but any of you following this site for a while would have already known this.

President Peres posted the above photo on Facebook. Opposite attract? Forever his girl? Naa, just another photo opp.

I am just surprised he is not shown kissing her. Because we all know how he loves to move in for the kill.

Anyway, welcome to Israel, Paula! Don’t forget to send Simon a postcard.*

Update: Just a little small talk…

* On second thoughts, does anyone actually send postcards anymore?
