Polling for PM, "None of The Above"

Apparently, there's a real leadership crisis in Israel. Recent polls, on

Jeremy's Knesset Insider

Your Israeli Knesset Center – Polls & Analysis, show that voters don't see any of the wannabes, including Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu, as the Prime Minister of their choice.

I'm going to quote here from a few of his recent posts:

Who is most suited to serve as Prime Minister?
29% Don’t know, 28% Netanyahu, 14% Lapid, 7% Peretz, 6% Bennett, 5% Gabbi, 5% Kahlon, 3% Liberman, 3% Yaalon
If you had the right to vote in Labor primary – who would you vote for?
51% None, 25% Gabbi, 23% Peretz
#1 Who is most suited to be Prime Minister?
38% None, 28% Netanyahu, 19% Lapid, 9% Bennett, 6% Peretz
#2 Who is most suited to be Prime Minister?
30% None, 29% Netanyahu, 19% Lapid, 10% Bennett, 11% Gabbai

On one hand it's pretty humorous, but to be honest it's much more worrying. Most Israelis don't see/feel leadership coming from the politicians running the government. These politicians don't have vision. They just talk of alliances with foreign governments and "getting approval/permission" from foreign leaders for our growth and development.  This is very worrying and bad news for sure for the future of the State of Israel.

You don't have to be a great Bible scholar to see the parallels between now and the time of the Judges:
Judges 21:25In those days there was no king in Israel; every man did what was right in his eyes.
 
כהבַּיָּמִים הָהֵם אֵין מֶלֶךְ בְּיִשְׂרָאֵל אִישׁ הַיָּשָׁר בְּעֵינָיו יַעֲשֶֹה:
Rescue of the Jewish People finally came from the women, most notably Naomi, Ruth and Hannah whose actions resulted in the establishment of a Jewish Kingdom.

Gd willing, we will be redeemed speedily in our days.

Shabbat Shalom U'Mevorach
May You have a Peaceful and Blessed Sabbath
