Since Israel does not know an absentee ballot ( except for offical emissaries, as far as I know ), does this mean that professor Klein does not vote himself? That is a shame.
Richard Silverstein says
If I can get to the event I’ll ask him myself. It would be a shame since the election is so important. Seems that turnout will be low (65%%) for Israel, according to Haaretz reports, which is also a shame.
