Vanity Fair has published a lengthy profile of Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, entitled “The Netanyahu Paradox”.

David Margolick writes about Netanyahu’s political dealings and hardships, the Israeli reaction to the Arab Spring, Netanyahu’s relationship with American billionaires Ronald Lauder and Sheldon Adelson, the Iranian nuclear situation, and Sara Netanyahu – the Israeli leader’s wife.

“Seconds into any conversation about Netanyahu, the subject of Sara, whom he married in 1991, invariably comes up. It’s amazing how many otherwise sane Israelis see her Lady Macbeth-like hand in every corner of her husband’s life and work—whom he hires, what he does and doesn’t do, whom he can and cannot see,” Magolick writes.

Margolick notes the Israeli media’s obsession with Sara Netanyahu and the perception that she impedes the work of her husband while he attempts to lead the state of Israel.

“Numerous former staffers say her imbroglios periodically bring governance to a halt, forcing her husband to leave key meetings to tend to trivial matters or simply to calm her down,” Margolick writes in the July issue of Vanity Fair.  “No one seriously contends that she will determine what happens with Iran. But many think she denies Netanyahu the serenity a man in his position needs.”

    Be strong, be brave. The Bible is the ark of God (1st Samuel 4:22). Remember Noah built an ark with stories (Genesis 6:16). Notice Moses, (Hebrews 7:14) and the Torah (Galatians 4:25), being taught in the synagogues (Revelation 2:9) and temples made with hands (Acts 7:48). The temple of the Lord is a lie, be honest *Jeremiah 7:4*

    The state of Israel are Semites (Revelation 2:9), because Israelites (Romans 9:4) went into bondage (John 8:33)? The tribe of Juda followed Esau (Genesis 38:2) and the tribe of Benjamin was taken. *1st Samuel 10:19 And ye have this day rejected your God, who himself saved you out of all your adversities and your tribulations; and ye have said unto him, Nay, but set a king over us. Now therefore present yourselves before the Lord by your tribes, and by your thousands. (Revelation 7:5 equals Hebrews 7:14). *Luke 23:43*

    Wonder what Sarah Palin may have observed when she and her husband were personal guests for dinner at the Netanyahu residence?
