Obama launches Hebrew blog


Democratic presidential contender Barack Obama has launched a Hebrew-language blog.

In a post on the blog, Obama’s Middle East policy advisor, Eric Lynn, says the blog aims to inform Israelis of the candidate’s desire to strengthen the U.S.-Israel relationship.

The blog was launched Friday with a Hebrew translation of Obama’s speech last year to the annual policy conference of the American-Israel Public Affairs Committee.

Obama’s campaign has labored intensively to counter sentiment in the Jewish community that the candidate is insufficiently strong on Israel.

The blog can be accessed here.
