    For years Nentanyahu fostered and encouraged the “Um Shmum” (the UN is Nothing. Irrelevant) concept. That all the nations are wrong and only this ‘genius’ Netanyahu holds the flag of ‘truth’ and kindness. The “Am Levadad Yishcon” (a nation that will dwell in solitude and not be reckoned among the nations) concept and the contempt to others as if only he knows what caring, being human and generosity means. The best nation, the best unit, the best army, the best, the best.... Then came the fire and exposed for all to see the emptiness and shallowness of this arrogant person. "Israel has never prepared itself in any form for such a need," Netanyahu said re the recent fire. "It was never taken into account.” It was never taken into account said the paper tiger... “Israel not ashamed of asking for foreign aid to put out Carmel fire”. Yes, the ‘King” is NAKED. He is reckless, empty and negligent. They came from all over. From Greece to Bulgaria, Cyprus, Turkey, France, Russia, Italy, Jordan, USA, France, Switzerland, Spain, Germany, Australia and other places to save Israel from the gross negligence and irresponsibility of this person and his government and offer relief. They heard the calling and came to help the Jewish state. To let Israel know that Israel is not alone and that “Am NOT Levadad Yishcon”. That there is hope. That human kindness is universal. That a nation should not only live by the sword and lead by fear. But rather elect a leader that chooses to lead by hope, love and respect to all mankind.

Why Barak regrets speaking out on Iran

There was no security breach in what the former defense minister said about how an attack was thwarted; what has suffered is mainly Israel’s image as a well-run, normal country whose leaders are capable of keeping a secret.
