The name: "Leader" can hardly be applied to any Israeli politician around today. Pehaps "war hero" but that all ends as soon as they take office... Then the scandals begin. A Tik is opened. Personal lives are not in order. Sexual indescrepencies crawl out of the closets... Who do our young people have to lead Israel today? Who gives the clarion call of direction? These qualities are found by the Orthodox Rabbis. But these two qualities of "Leader" and "follower" are to be made fun of as long as the person is a religious Jew that is... But who is there around who is not religious who possesses such qualities? The Abba Kovno's and Bielski's are gone. Even they could only lead under the terrible trying circumstances of their times. Only after it was forced on their shoulders and only against a terrible enemy. Today, all the enemies are gone. The world is Israel's plate to eat from, but the only leaders to be found are in the Orthodox world...
