Netanyahu to Appear on Popular Satire Show


Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu was photographed on Thursday with actor Mariano Edelman, who portrays Netanyahu on the Israeli satirical TV show "Eretz Nehederet" (A Wonderful Country).

The two were photographed after they filmed a sketch that will air next week on Israel's Independence Day. "Eretz Nehederet" is such a popular program that U.S. President Barack Obama recently mentioned it during his speech in Jerusalem, saying that any reports of tension between he and Netanyahu were simply meant to provide material for the show.
