Moshe Ya’alon on the qualities of strong leadership

“Leadership is a crucial element in national security. Israel needs a national leadership that is not driven by polls… True leadership does not play on the public’s sense of fear and nurture inner wars and animosity. There is no true leadership in Israel without the trust of the people in it.”

(Former-Defence Minister Moshe Ya’alon speaking about the importance of strong leadership at the annual Institute for National Security Studies (INSS) conference, 24/01/2017)
