Does Benjamin Netanyahu Have a Philly Accent?
As Barack Obama visits the Holy Land this week, it’s worth noting a little tidbit I found on Wikipedia about Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu.
Between 1956 and 1958, and again from 1963 to 1967, his family lived in the United States in Cheltenham Township, Pennsylvania, a suburb of Philadelphia, where he attended and graduated from the Cheltenham High School and was active in a debate club. To this day, he speaks American English with a Philadelphia accent.
Be the judge of that yourself. My own verdict? Wikipedia, as always, proves its questionable reliability.
