    At least their is one example of a great leader willing to protect his people during our time to look up to in the world today.

    Being surrounded on all sides in-depth by peoples that want to kill you just because you don’t worship their false god and pedophile filled lifestyle makes for a strong moral character and he showed the power to call out his army and stomp flat the bad guys, but he ALSO showed the courage to tell them to STOP and brought his army back home WITHOUT taking land, pillaging, raping, or leveling their enemy cties.

    People who posses true leadership know when enough is enough and are able to find enough compassion for their enemies to help them once they have been taught the errors of their ways even though they have proved that they have learned nothing and will still try to kill you any way they can.

    My husband and I are ready to move to Israel–even with all the conflict–we would love to have a leader who cares about the people he has been elected to lead.
