Tel Aviv Mayor Ron Huldai on Monday joined an initiative calling on US President Barack Obama to speak at Rabin Square.

Writing on his Facebook page, Huldai stated that he has joined the initiative to invite Obama to address the Israeli public, saying that he would be "delighted and honored to invite Obama to Tel-Aviv Yafo." Huldai said: "Like many others, I too am excited over the news of the upcoming visit of President Barak Obama in Israel."



Commenting on the symbolic location of the proposed speech, Huldai said Rabin square is the "symbol of Israeli democracy" and of the public's desire to live a peaceful, normal existence.

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.
