Israel Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu met yesterday with the 38 members of Israel's Olympic delegation. He present the delegation with this drawing showing a Israeli athlete on the winners podium holding an Israeli flag. His note in Hebrew reads:
To the Israeli Olympic Delegation.
Faster, higher, stronger!
According to JTA, "Bibi also gave them Olympic medals — made of chocolate."
Netanyahu is no stranger to sports himself. Just last month, the Prime Minister injured his leg playing a soccer match with Jewish and Arab youths. His leg will be in a cast for several weeks. Now, according to the Jerusalem Post, "the Prime Minister's office "is debating how to hold a Netanyahu-Romney photo-op without showing the cast on the prime minister's leg."
