Netanyahu Tries His Hand (and foot) At Sports (and arts)

Israel Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu met yesterday with the 38 members of Israel’s Olympic delegation. He present the delegation with this drawing showing a Israeli athlete on the winners podium holding an Israeli flag. His note in Hebrew reads:

To the Israeli Olympic Delegation.
Faster, higher, stronger!
With success,
Benjamin Netanyahu


According to JTA, “Bibi also gave them Olympic medals — made of chocolate.”


Netanyahu is no stranger to sports himself. Just last month, the Prime Minister injured his leg playing a soccer match with Jewish and Arab youths. His leg will be in a cast for several weeks. Now, according to the Jerusalem Post, “the Prime Minister’s office “is debating how to hold a Netanyahu-Romney photo-op without showing the cast on the prime minister’s leg.”
