During his speech today to Israeli’s today at the Jerusalem Convention Center, President Obama was heckled by a protestor in the audience.

“I have to say we actually arranged for that because it made me feel at home,” Obama joked, adding that he “wouldn’t feel comfortable” without at least one heckler.

“This is part of the lively debate that we talked about,” he added.

According to the pool report, the shouting was about Jonathan Jay Pollard, an American convicted of spying for Israel.
