VIDEO: Netanyahu Casually Strolls Through His Neighborhood

Prime Minister Netanyahu shows he’s just a normal person with Friday afternoon stroll with his dog

Can you imagine US President Barack Obama out for a stroll with his dog? That’s exactly what Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu was doing on Friday afternoon, casually interacting with passersby in his downtown Jerusalem neighborhood.

Of course, Netanyahu and Kaiya (his dog) were surrounded by numerous soldiers and security agents, as well as staff members responsible for filming and photographing the stroll in jeans and sneakers in order to show the prime minister is just a normal person, like everyone else.

Israeli media, however, somewhat skewered Netanyahu for trying to appear spontaneous, when in fact such a well-publicized outing was clearly anything but spontaneous.
