Centrizius
Limor Livnat writes in this book that after the Six Day War, someone scribbled "Am Yisrael Chai" (the people of Israel live) on the Arch of Titus in Rome.

You see, the Arch of Titus is there to celebrate the destruction of Jerusalem, over 1900 years ago. The Roman Empire is gone. And the Jews they went after, by no means as numerous or wealthy as the Romans, are still around. Livnat says that this means that the Jews have "defied history."

I wouldn't put it quite that way. But I do think we ought to realize that Big Empires can topple, while a much smaller people can withstand losing some battles and wars. In particular, I wouldn't be surprised if the Jews, having outlasted the Romans, managed to outlast some of their more recent foes.

Livnat is an Israeli politician. I think it might be worth comparing her, especially given her role as Education Minister, with Hanan Ashrawi, who once served as Arafat's Education Minister. Not all people are alike, and I think the contrast between these two people is enormous. Livnat is a genuine public servant, while Ashrawi has merely been a counterproductive propagandizer.

Livnat, speaking at the Golda Meir center in Haifa, says that women can be leaders. And that they can be feminists as well. The Knesset is dominated by men right now. Livnat feels that there is no reason why it couldn't be half women and half men. Neither do I. And she points out that there are some attitude changes that may need to be made to accomplish this. But she insists that "a woman can be a feminist and religious, a feminist and a capitalist, a feminist and an astronaut, or a feminist and a quilt-maker." I strongly agree.

As for leadership, maybe that would be a problem if a leader always had to be the person who could lift the heaviest weight. Luckily, that isn't the case at all.

Livnat states her vision for the future. She sees an Israel that will defend and protect Jews both in Israel and elsewhere. One which will continue to absorb immigrants from everywhere and will have stronger bonds with the Jewish diaspora. A Jewish and democratic Israel (as she explains, that is not a contradiction) that is at peace with its neighbors. And an undivided Jerusalem as Israel's capital.

Right now, all this may look preposterous, much as Herzl's vision of a Jewish state must have seemed preposterous a century ago. But her dream is merely one that has come true for many other small nations.

I recommend this book.
Skyway
This book presents the political credo of a leading Israeli politician. Livnat is a central member of the Likud party and presently serves as Education Minister within the Israeli government. This book is somewhat dry and lacks the vision and scope of the work of another Likud leader Benjamin Netanyahu. But it does tell effectively the story, and outline the basic principles of a hard- working, skillful Israeli politician. Livnat by the way is a strong advocate of women's rights. Her basic calling card however has been her support for the Greater Land of Israel movement.
Dream
This is an amazing book by an amazing person. A must for anyone wanting to know what's what in Israel politics...
