Israeli President Herzog: "The Vote of the Israeli People Should Be Respected"

(JNS) Israeli President Isaac Herzog appealed to American Jewry to respect Israel's election results in a Monday address to the Jewish Federations of North America's General Assembly in Chicago. "The results may or may not be to your liking, but the vote of the Israeli people should be respected," Herzog said via video feed from Jerusalem. Herzog also downplayed concerns about the frequency of Israeli elections in recent years. "[W]hile frequent elections are clearly not ideal - they are also evidence of a vibrant, dynamic democracy. We must all recognize that the Israeli people, abundant with diversity and varying opinions, are correctly exercising their fundamental, democratic right to vote."
