Netanyahu invites questions on YouTube


(JTA) — Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu issued a call for people around the world to send him video questions through YouTube. 

According to a release from the Prime Minister’s Office, Netanyahu is "particularly interested" in speaking with people from the Arab world, and from those in countries undergoing the so-called "Arab Spring."

Netanyahu is happy to discuss peace talks, democracy in the Arab world "and even the Gaza flotilla," the statement said. He will post his responses to the video clips on his YouTube channel within the next few weeks.

The office said Netanyahu has received "dozens" of questions from Arab web users, and "most respondents expressed support for peace with Israel and are interested in understanding its positions regarding the ‘Arab Spring’ and the future of negotiations with the Palestinians."
