Obama Heckled In Israel
WASHINGTON — President Obama was heckled by a member of the audience during a speech at the Jerusalem International Convention Center Thursday.

As Obama was extolling the virtues of Israel’s political system and free press, a man began yelling out. The president shook off the heckles and continued with his speech.

“No, no,” Obama said as some in the crowd began to boo the heckler. “This is part of the lively debate that we talked about. This is good.”

The crowd cheered.

“You know, I have to say we actually arranged for that because it made me feel at home,” Obama went on. “I wouldn’t feel comfortable if I didn’t have at least one heckler.”

A pool reporter on the scene reported the heckler was yelling in Hebrew about jailed Israeli spy Jonathan Pollard.
