Well, I am not an expert on Middle East affairs, neither am I and Ideologue on Islamic religion. But I want to put this clear, Benjamin Netanyahu has displayed a rare leadership quality which will go down in history as the greatest demonstration of leadership quality which any leader has ever displayed. Israeli Prime Minister has demonstrated to Turkey's president Erdogan that Israel has what it takes to live as a nation, what Bibi did is what I termed, "humilty in display, which is the highest virtue a leader can display to a ranting fool. Turkey should and must not see what Israeli Prime Minister did as a sign of weakness. Bibi is trying to pass a message to Erdogan that leadership requires humility and sincerity.

Pride goes before fall, and a haughty spirit before destruction, for a leader to apologize shows that he is sensible and wise, Turkey should know that she needs to bring down herself in humility to see the reality on the ground, Bibi has shown world leaders, that Israel has the leadership quality to not only advance the Middle East, but to lead the world-this is no exaggeration, yes humility is seen in what Bibi did, except for a pumpous fool.

Bibi, you are a man, I admire what you did, that is what the DIVINE expects from HIS creatures. Thank you for teaching others that humility exalts a man. Let the fools rant and make noise.
