PM Asks Surfers to Choose Present for Michelle Obama

The Prime Minister's Office is asking Internet surfers to pick a present for First Lady Michelle Obama of the United States and her daughters, Sasha and Malia, to be presented to President Barack Obama when he visits, next week. In a Friday post on Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu's Hebrew Facebook page, surfers were asked to suggest symbolic gifts with an Israeli context that are creative or original.

During the Obama visit, Netanyahu will show the American president a series of Israeli technological developments. The unique exhibit, entitled "Israeli technology for a better world", will feature developments in the field of alternative energy, fighting traffic accidents, medicine and robotics, as well as search and rescue.
