I’m So Glad Ruby Rivlin is Israel’s New President and Not Shitrit

Thank G-d! Ruby Rivlin got 63 Knesset votes, and Shitrit didn’t make it.

Now in all honesty, I don’t expect miracles from Ruby. The position of President of Israel was created to be ceremonial, to free the Prime Minister from time consuming photo shoots with ambassadors and all. I trust that Ruby will be charming and not try to stretch the job into being a faux Prime Minister.

Shimon Peres tried to stretch stretched the position, because he really wanted to be Prime Minister and make policy to undermine Bibi Netanyahu. I had/have no doubt that if Meir Shitrit had been elected he would have attempted to continue Peres’s precedent.

So let’s wish Ruby Rivlin, Israel’s newest President a long, healthy and productive life.

  1. Finally a president we can all be proud of. Mazal Tov Reuven Rivlin!

  2. Kenneth Schreier says:

    Yes indeed, He should be a moral leader. A leader who leads by example in accordance with the laws of Moshe. Not a politician but a righteous person who will promote truth and peace in our chaotic world.
    Have a Good Shabbos!

Let’s cut to the chase! The people who call themselves Palestinians are simply Arabs (Muslims) who came to this area from several Islamic regimes. This is not my opinion but rather what their leaders clearly say.

A terror attack and a legitimate policing action are not equal. There’s never an excuse for terror.
