As hundreds and maybe even thousands of Israelis are hoping to receive an invitation to listen to Barack Obama's speech at the Jerusalem International Convention Center, one lucky young woman has been invited to dine with the American president.

The organizers of Obama's upcoming visit to Israel have included the new Miss Israel, Ethiopian-born Yityish (Titi) Aynaw, on the exclusive guest list to the gala dinner hosted by President Shimon Peres in honor of the US leader. "I have butterflies in my stomach," the 22-year-old beauty queen admitted Wednesday.
