Here’s a great recent piece that’s fairly short for those who don’t know him.

  1. Loved the speech. Have never heard his name, but now will try to find out more.

    “the job of the politician is not to stir up conflict but to soothe it.”

    I wish… In Israel, it is an endless election season now – soon we’ll have 3rd election in a year – and the politicians are stirring with all their might.
