According to the teaching of the Jewish history, it takes great leaders to lead a country through challenges. Israel is a country that stands strong today because its leaders were determined to see it become a solid nation amidst all the hate sponsored by its neighbors. In fact, Israel is the only country in the Middle East which practices western democracy. Other countries which surround the country are Muslim-led and do not subscribe to the democratic rule. Some of the countries here are led by dictators who support the activities of radical Muslim.
Back to the Israeli leaders, David Ben-Gurison, Chain Herzorg, Golda Meir, and Henrietta are some of the Jewish leaders who have left a huge mark in the history of the community. They stood strong when the community was going through major challenges and saw the country emerge victoriously. It is through such leaders that we still have Jews living in the Middle East. Otherwise, the hate from the neighboring radical Islamists would have driven them out of the region. To them, Jews are colonizers.
With that being the history of the community, going into the future, the community deserves to be supported by other great leaders. The challenges facing the Jews have not in any way gone down. There are still major problems that the community faces. Anti-Semitism is the major problem, and any great leader of the Jewish community must focus on fighting this vice. Also, the country needs a leader who will stand firm in times of pressure and defend the country with all might.
Adam Milstein, an author with Jpost, claims that, for the nation to have influential leaders in future, it needs to invest in the young generation. The young Jews of today will be the leaders of tomorrow. If they are not encouraged to stand and defend their community in times of tribulations, then the country will be at risk of being taken over by radical groups. Adam Milstein is supporting various initiatives aimed at mentoring the young Jews and teaching them about their history. By giving them lessons and motivating them, Adam Milstein believes the young Jews will grow up proud of their nationality.
