Real Jewish Leadership
Leadership is a much used phrase especially by the people who understand
it the least, yet want the public to accept both their deboned version of leadership and of course their empty characterization
Israel’s PM Netanyahu has been a leadership disaster, worse than any leader in the State’s
history. His ‘success’ is in having gotten the Israeli public used to the unimaginable idea of a nuclear armed
Iran. I don’t believe that any Israeli soldier or civilian could ever imagine that his government would allow Iran to
succeed in developing the nuclear weapons which Iran never stopped threatening to use to exterminate the State and people
Netanyahu’s Deputy Minister of Defense, Danny Danon is like a cartoon, spouting the same two
lines wherever he turns up. At the Celebrate Israel Parade in Central Park this past summer and on the Huckabee Show aired
on Saturday night 9/7/13 he parroted them again. Israel is very strong and Israel is capable of defending its citizens. He
did mention on Huckabee within his statement that Israel doesn’t get involved in the decision America is considering,
yet stating that there was a morale issue America would be dealing with in formulating its decision to strike Syria. Danny
boy, what moral issue is involved here? And what morality can Israel expect from an administration which has leaked Israel’s
invasion plans to attack Iran’s nuclear weapon’s facilities after the previous administration sabotaged them altogether
? Look at how Judge Jeanine ripped conman Obama apart regarding his assertion that America should fire a ‘shot across
the bow’ to punish Syria. Her 9/7/13, Saturday night show was an example of oratory leadership. You know that if you
were on her show, she would have asked you what the moral issue was and if this statement wasn’t really a kind of intervention
into the American administration’s consideration of whether or not to launch an attack on Syria.
there is the Moshe Feiglin show; he, who was to bring Israel the long awaited Jewish leadership that would revolutionize Israeli
politics! My hope in his party didn’t fade at first because the ideas he and his group presented were correct and based
on the Torah. It was when I first discussed with him the need for revitalizing Jewish identity so that his ideas would find
fallow ground, that he demonstrated his lack of real leadership.
It is more than ‘seizing the bull
by the horns’.
The application of force on the body politic, or the manipulation of the public’s thoughts
often pass for leadership. This was the case with recent American presidents except for Ronald Reagan who reminded Americans
who they were and what America was. This is what Israel needs now more than ever. Jewish leadership needs to prepare the Israeli
public for an existential war, not convince them that they can go about their business as usual. The public needs to know
that the enemy forces arrayed against them are more dangerous than ever before. They must be reminded that this existential
war is eternal and was always part of their destiny. And more importantly the people of Israel must be reminded that victory
is also their destiny provided that their hearts, minds and souls cleave to their God with faith and confidence and courage.
By his words, tone, body language and life, the true leader will affect the body politic by nourishing their souls
with the true and certain aspects of their ancient and eternal identity as God’s chosen nation to bring about redemption
for the entire world. This universal redemption includes the utter defeat and destruction of all of God’s enemies and
the establishment of God’s Kingdom. This Kingdom is not an ephemeral or metaphoric concept which exists in the realm
of mystical, philosophical or metaphysical ideas. It is a kingdom of justice, mercy, generosity and brotherly love which transcends
every aspect of human affairs, endeavors and society. This is the kingdom which good hearted, God loving, God fearing men
and women create by the purity and fidelity of their thoughts and actions consistent with the intentions of their Creator.
The allusion to this Divine Kingdom which the people of Israel are destined to and also commanded to establish in partnership
with their God is first seen in Genesis 9 : 27. Heretofore Israel has been living in the tents of Japhet. When true Jewish
leadership captures the imagination of the people of Israel, they will share God’s vision of the tent of Shem. The people
will then devote themselves to establishing their society on ethical, moral and spiritual principles which their God provided
for them in their Covenant. In the sight of the entire world, the new Jerusalem of truth, beauty, righteousness, justice and
brotherhood will emanate its intended and destined light and glory to the entire world. The truth revealed will be reinforced
by the eternal force of the Creator who will vanquish all of His enemies forever. The entire nation will provide the impetus
for the world to join in the expansion of this dearest of mankind’s dreams, i.e., the universal utopian civilization
where all God’s children will be free to labor and to rest unafraid, in happiness and with the means to live as God
With this vision reinforced in the minds and hearts of the nation, Jewish leadership will turn to the
exigencies with which the people must grapple today, to secure their future. The nation will be directed to comply in heart,
mind and spirit with the laws of their eternal Covenant. They will come to understand that this was always and will always
be their path to victory ! By this compliance they win the life that all good people strive to attain. And by their compliance
and earning God’s blessings, the people of the world see their way to participation in these blessings. This light of
truth emanating from Jerusalem, lit and maintained by the voluntary compliance of God’s chosen nation will give glory
to God and insure the nation’s blessings forever.
In this spiritual context, the people will be prepared
for the war to end all wars. This will be the conquest of evil with God fighting beside His people. Israel’s fighters
will be raised to a new level beyond normal courage and power. They will become invincible as they crush all their foes. No
one, no nation will be able to stand before them. And the world will fear Israel because they see that the Hand of God is
now permanently with His people. As God’s blessings reach the entire brotherhood of mankind, Israel’s scourge,
the ever present anti-Semitism will finally be extinguished from the earth.
The true leader of Israel will address
his, i.e., God’s people in this context and empower them to be as big and as powerful; as just and as righteousness
as their God destined them to be; so that when the Temple of God is rebuilt, their will be no contest by any other religion
as to whom the Temple Mount belongs. Nor will their be any contesting the vast new lands occupied by Israel’s people
where former national forces invented nations situated on land destined to be returned to the hegemony of the people of Israel.
The mythical nations of Palestine, Jordan, Iraq, Saudi Arabia, Syria, Turkey and others will remain on paper in history books
save for the areas which God had not destined His chosen and now redeemed nation to occupy forever. The false faiths and religions
will be revealed as they always were, i.e., distractions - libelous ones - from the one and only Covenant made by God in the
wilderness of Sinai for Israel and ultimately for all of mankind.
