Barack Hussein Obama, who spent his late adolescence in a haze of pot smoke, Bibi Netanyahu, Naftali Bennett and Nir Barkat were busy on the front-line and enemy territory in defense of the State of Israel.
In Israel, army service forms great lasting friendships. In units like the ones Netanyahu, Barkat and Bennett served, one counted on one's fellow soldiers in life-threatening situations. Actually, not only in a personal sense but for the security of the entire State of Israel.
Leftist leaders, Isaac (Bouji) Herzog and Yair Lapid had safe desk jobs, Intelligence and Journalism in the IDF.
Think about it. With whom would you like to trust your life and country?
