MK Strook: Bring Obama to Hevron


In her first speech as a Knesset member Tuesday, MK Orit Strook (Jewish Home) insisted that U.S. President Barack H. Obama be brought to Hevron when he visits Israel next month. Only then, Strook said, would Obama be able to appreciate what the Land of Israel means to the Jewish people.

“It would be a good idea to take President Obama not just to Mount Herzl and Yad Vashem, but also – actually, mainly – to the Machpelah Cave in Hevron,” Strook said.
