Israelis invite US President Barack Obama to Rabin Square
A Facebook initiative seeks to bring US President Barack Obama to Rabin Square in Tel Aviv to speak directly to the public.
The page, entitled "Speech for Peace," invites Obama to come to Rabin Square, a symbolic site which saw the assassination of Yitzhak Rabin on November 4, 1995. Rallies, protests and demonstrations have been held at the square for those seeking change ever since.
The Facebook page has over 2,500 "likes" since its founding on Wednesday.
A petition initiated by Uri Appenzeller has been created on the official White House website, calling for Obama to speak directly on "our people's friendship, the hope for change, and the prospects for peace, security and prosperity in the Middle East."
