Being just a few days after Israeli election, I thought of what I would say if I was invited to speak to the Knesset. I got more emotional (not crying emotional) than I would have imagined. With God's help, our national parliament will pull together and show the world how precious this country is and how much we love it. I invite you to add what you would like to say to the Knesset (please do it in a derech eretz way) and if you like, I'll read it on the air next time. You can reach me at

Keep that derech eretz thing going, my friends, and have a great week, Shalom!
