Netanyahu links to Arabs using YouTube

Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu reached out to the Arab world via the Internet last week, asking people to pose him video questions via YouTube.

His June 28 outreach came after a successful global YouTube session in March in which Netanyahu first responded to questions from Arabs around the world.

In a video message, with Arabic subtitles, Netanyahu said he is “especially” looking forward to fielding questions from Arabs. He says he’d “like to hear what you have to say and I’d like you to hear what I have to say in response.”

Netanyahu’s office says the plea is an attempt to broaden the direct dialogue with the Arab world. — ap
