This was first posted on my blog Shiloh Musings as,  Wanted: A True Fearless Leader for the State of Israel!,   http://shilohmusings.blogspot.co.il/2016/03/wanted-true-fearless-leader-for-state.html.

I'm sick and tired of politicians. They aren't leaders. I think that's one of the attractions that Donald Trump has for American Republicans. They are also totally fed up with the standard politician whose policies and promises are as stable and permanent as an Etch A Sketch drawing.

In the free world, which includes Israel, many voters/citizens are beginning to see the light, the truth, that our politicians aren't leading. They are just following polls and what they and their advisors think and spout what they think we want to hear. That's why once the politician is elected to office, you so rarely see their promises and platforms take on life.

It's inevitable that once in office, politicians promote policies so different from their campaign promises. It's just like how a tiny shake of the Etch A Sketch erases the image.

Here in Israel, we're facing life and death dangers. We are not a large, rich in natural resources and protected by natural boundaries country like the United States. We can't take "risks for peace" or anything like we're being urged. The State of Israel is not only surrounded by military and ideological enemies on three sides, but we have a strongly supported terrorist enemy within our borders. We also lack not only natural resources but allies.

What we have to protect us is Gd Almighty and the Jewish People all over the world. There's just a problem that many Jews do not fully understand our situation. We need to have full faith and trust in Gd, not the USA, the UN, the EU et. al. We need policies that are good for us and not for our enemies. We need leaders to lead our government who aren't checking back for approval from others. The only approval we need is Gd's. That's how we won the 1967 Six Days War so quickly. We fought and we prayed. No country helped, and we won, because our victories only come with Gd's assistance. Since 1967 military experts from all over the world have tried to figure out how Israel won that war, and they find no logical reason for our victory. Gd overrides logic, nature and math!

We must not fear, as long as we follow Gd. That is one of the lessons of the Purim story in Megillat (Scroll of) Esther. The date of the battle Haman planned against the Jewish People was chosen by lottery, and Gd controls such results. And that is why we won.

Chag Purim Sameach
May We Have a Joyous Purim and
May We Celebrate with True Jewish Faith and Leadership!
