|Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu|
Netanyahu is a native of Israel, born in Tel-Aviv in 1949 (the same year I was born). He grew up in Jerusalem, the heart of the religious world for Jews, Christians, and Muslims. While his father was a history teacher in the United States, Netanyahu lived here. When he returned to Israel, he enlisted in the Israel Defense Forces and was a member of the prestigous Sayeret Matkal commando unit.
He has seen war first-hand and was wounded during the hostage rescue operation at Ben Gurion Airport. He left the IDF in 1972. (See his more detailed biography HERE.)
Netanyahu has earned his warrior-statesman status while under fire by the enemy, by his political opponents, and by foreign leaders like Barack Obama who consider the future of Israel nothing more than a bargaining chip in an effort to appease brutal Islamic fundamentalists.
Benjamin Netanyahu will not falter on behalf of his nation, he places the security and welfare of his people above himself, and he regards his personal honor as something that is non-negotiable.
Where is America's warrior-statesman who will rescue us from Barack Obama?
