MKs Request President Obama Address Knesset


MK Avi Wurtzman (Jewish Home) and Tzipi Hotoveli (Likud) wrote President Obama Thursday morning requesting he reconsider his decision not to speak in Knesset during his visit to Israel in March.

“We regret your decision. The Knesset represents Israeli society, including Jews, Muslims, Druze and Christians. Many world leaders have visited the  Knesset to address the Nation of Zion in its eternal capital Jerusalem. Mr. President, we request you reconsider, and make your historic address in the Israeli House of Representatives.”
