Twelve years of intensive work have brought about a great change in the Likud. The national ruling party has opened its gates to the faith-based public as never before. The Likud Knesset list includes seven settlers and many religious Zionists in realistic slots. The sectoral opposing wave threatens to wash away the advancement of faith-based energies to the fore of national leadership.
Ultimately, it is only deep-rooted leadership that can get us out of the vicious Oslo cycle and deal with our current challenges with a faith-based perspective. The question is: Is that what Israelis want?
