Obama is spending quite some time signing the Mt. Herzl guestbook. A quick zoom in from the TV camera shows he began his rather lengthy entry by describing his visit as “humbling and inspiring.”

Israelis are still excited about yesterday’s speech. On Channel 2, one of the announcers is describing it as a “part of Zionist history,” an unprecedented address from an American leader.
