Bravo for Natanyahu

Reader comment on item: Netanyahu's Steady Hand

Submitted by john w mcginley (United States), Jul 3, 2014 at 09:28

The Prime Minister's remarks constitute in high and thoughtful accounting of Israel's future. To look to the future one must glean the past. Frankly, Netanyahu is, in my perception, the best leader for Israel since the time of Ben Gurion. I get the impression that many Jews in and out of Israel have a distaste for him. Well I will cede this: pizzaz is not his strong suit. But this "shortcoming" is in fact the secret of his leadership abilities.) I loved Ariel Sharon. and he had pizzaz. He was one of Israel's greatest warrior and Prime Minister. But he can't hold a candle to the leadership qualities of Netanyahu. ((I won't even mention here that scoundrel in the White House who is succeeding in bringing down the United States.

At one time he did have flair and predicated on that "flair" I voted for him in 2008. What a mistake. Now, at best, he is an embarrassment to my country. But we are entering into a most dangerous time period for America (which means a dangerous time for Israel). With an ego like his he may bring down the United States. I fear the machinations of this man and what he may orchestrate, say, at the end of Summer in 1916. If I am right on this then Israel should be prepared to face its biggest challenge since the founding of the Jewish state in '47/'48.)) Natanyahu has learned much since he took over the stewardship of the Nation of Israel. I will pray for him and encourage him to continue to maintain a STEADY AND FIRM stewardship. He carries in his heart the heartbreaking destiny of his brother at Entebbe. His is all in for Israel. I sense he will steer his nation as it passes through the the danger of the small waterway between Scylla (sp/) and Charybnis. Bibi! Stand Strong.
