The logo which receives the most LIKEs in the next 48 hours will be chosen

Hundreds of journalists from around the world are expected to come to
Israel; a press center will be opened for them in Jerusalem. During the
visit, emphasis will be placed on the use of social media and the
involvement of the public, such as in choosing the official logo.

At the weekly Cabinet meeting this morning, National Security Adviser Yaakov
Amidror briefed ministers on preparations for US President Obama's visit. He
noted that the main issues of the visit will be focused on the
diplomatic-security sphere the Iranian nuclear issue, the situation in
Syria and efforts to resume the negotiations with the Palestinians. He added
that in light of the international interest in the visit, an effort will be
made to present the development of the Israeli high-tech industry.

At the start of the Cabinet meeting, Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu said:
"We are in the midst of preparations for the US President's visit. It will
focus on three issues: The first is Iran's progress toward achieving nuclear
weapons. To my regret, this progress is continuing. Iran has recently
expedited its nuclear activity. It is enriching material at a high level and
it is installing new centrifuges in order to shorten the time it takes to
reach and cross the red line that I indicated in my UN speech

The second issue is the crumbling of the regime in Syria. Yesterday, we saw
that the fighting is also approaching our border. We will continue to guard
our border and prevent passage and entry to Israel, except for exceptional,
isolated cases, every one will be considered on its merits. The third issue
that we will discuss is moving forward on the diplomatic process with the
Palestinians. Over the weekend, attorney Isaac Molcho, my representative to
the talks, returned from a round of talks in Washington. This week, National
Security Adviser Yaakov Amidror is expected to go there. There is no doubt
that this issue will be on the agenda and will be part of the work of the
next government. During this visit, we will discuss the most significant
issues regarding the security of the State of Israel and the assurance of
its future."
