Kim Kardashian to Return to Jerusalem To Baptize 2nd Child at Armenian Church
JERUSALEM (Mintpress News) – Celebrity couple Kim Kardashian and Kanye West are reportedly headed back to Israel.
They plan to have their second child baptized at an Armenian church in Occupied Palestinian Territory that Palestinian Christians are barred from entering. The journey comes amid a wave of upcoming visits by Hollywood celebrities to Israel, thanks to a state-sponsored trip offered to some Oscar nominees.
Suzee Skwiot, writing on Dec. 19 for InTouch Weekly, called the rumored trip by Kardashian and West a budding “family tradition,” as the famous foursome prepare to return to the Cathedral of St. James in Jerusalem:
“Just like big sister North West, Saint West will be baptized in Israel, according to a new report. Kim Kardashian, husband Kanye West, and their two kids are rumored to be making the trip in early 2016 and are gearing up for the special moment.
‘She wants to take Saint to Jerusalem to get baptized like they did with Nori,’ a source tells to Us Weekly.”.
The Kardashians are among many celebrities planning the visit to Israel in upcoming days, thanks to a free, government-sponsored trip found in some Academy Awards “swag bags” — glamorous giveaways offered to top nominees each year.
“Their visit will have enormous resonance among millions of fans,” Yariv Levin, Israel’s tourism minister, reported.
The offer of a free 10-day trip to Israel, valued at $55,000, in the swag-bag provided to select Oscar nominees has raised the ire of the international boycott movement, which on Wednesday called on the actors and actresses to decline the offer.
The trip to Israel, underwritten by the Israeli government, is just one of numerous goodies provided to the nominees.
