funny, he says that. as he seems to be the one stuck with old ideas that never worked.

Exactly my reaction. He should get that from as many people as possible on Twitter.
I've been waiting over 5 years with bated breath for someone to say that!

Time to move this thread to the politics board?
I used to come here for the news about the war, now it's 24/7 politics.

That is where the war is currently being fought

Doesn't take away from the fact that this thread is now a political thread. Instead of discussing the details of the physical war - we're now discussing politicians and their politics.

Unpopular opinion: The best thing Trump and Netanyahu can do for their respective parties and the goals they claim to have is to retire from politics. If we vote for them it is only because of the alternatives. It doesn't matter whether or not they are right or unfairly maligned - the problems the right-wing bloc have in both countries is primarily due to them.
But they aren't altruistic enough to do these things.

Not only is that opinion unpopular, its wrong.

Both Trump and Netanyahu are great leaders (I am not saying they are good people, just good leaders). Their opposition has decided that they will not work with them until they step down.

This is not normal, nor democratic. This is what your 2 year old does when he didn't get the proper color cup for his milk.

Forcing them to step down after being democratically elected is turning a democratic country into a mob rule.

They should never step down due to pressure.

Nasrallah rejoices at ultra-Orthodox threat about leaving country over military draft
In his Ramadan speech, Hezbollah Secretary-General Hassan Nasrallah addressed Israel's draft bill crisis; Nasrallah was thrilled with Chief Rabbi Yitzhak Yosef's threat: 'This is a huge thing, let them pack their bags and leave'


Hmm... Says a lot that certain Jews seem to agree with one of the Jews' worst enemies...

While you might be right I don’t think it’s fair to compare Netanyahu to Trump. Even if your conclusion is identical the reasons are VERY different.

Netanyahu will retire as soon as he sees there's a competent replacement for him. Unfortunately there hasn't been anyone that comes close. Can you fathom anyone else withstanding US (and global) pressure like him? Those that might aren't electable (Yariv Levin for example).

Of course, he serves as a wholehearted volunteer ::) The idolization this piece of bluff has amongst the Charedim is jarring.

Lol. No way. But to compare him to Trump just because he likes himself too s totally inaccurate. Trump is a fool and meshigener, Netanyahu is smart, but likes himself too much.

That's correct. I took issue with the stating that he serves purely because there is no competent replacement and will step down as soon he sees one, while we all know he hinders and actually chops the legs off of anyone with competence rising on the political ladder.

He is an ardent Zionist. Regardless of my opinions about Zionism (I dropped his book in disgust after reading a few pages and realizing how much he believes in Zionism), if one believes that a leader should do what's best for the Jews (reminder: there are millions of Jews living in EY) regardless of US pressure, he is currently the best. He also happens to be more honest than most politicians.

[And if you follow his trial, as well as globally funded attempts to have him toppled as far back as 2015 (and possibly earlier) by the corrupt and cynical extreme left (progressive globalists), or if you recall Shimon Peres' expression when he lost to Netanyahu "the Jews won over the Israelis", you should better understand why people that care about Yiddishe lives and Yiddishkeit prefer him over anyone else in the current landscape].

Your last statement is correct. However he does actually see himself as kind of a Zionist "messiah", and he really believes it (just like he believes some of the early Zionists were.

All of that being said. I think mods should prune this discussion and make a separate thread titled "Netanyahu is best for the Jews. Yes or No? "

That's why he picks fights and then  squashes anybody with potential before they get a chance.

Up until recently I thought Barkat had a chance. In the past year he has proven himself not to be the right person.
