Greatest Israelis of All Time

The Top Ten

1 David Ben-Gurion

The father and architect of the modern State of Israel. Through his leadership as Prime Minister he laid the foundations for Israel to become the thriving nation of equality and science and technology it is today. He was a man of high intellect, education and values. He knew how to make his country an amazing nation while keeping the Arabs in their place. He was a very wise man. Without him there wouldn't have been an Israel. He will forever be at the core of every Israeli who loves their country.

the first Prime Minister of State of Israel - anthonybecerra831

He had a great soul

2 Yitzhak Rabin

Prime Minister and Chief of Staff of the Israel Defence Forces, a Nobel Peace Prize laureate. - anthonybecerra831

Since his assassination nothing is the same. The salt of our credo

The only prime minister who actually tried to make PEACE, who knows what would have happened if he was still alive.

He was awesome

3 Menachem Begin

One of the most responsible leaders the world has ever known. Loved his people and even stepped down voluntarily at the end of his career when he knew he could no longer lead effectively. A real man.

A great man and leader.

I love Begin. Wise man.

4 Ariel Sharon

If it weren't for a soldier of Sharon's caliber, Israel may not even exist today. Sharon fought in every one of Israel's wars, always and only with determination, leadership, courage, and the unwavering support for the troops he commanded. Not only that, through all that he witnessed in the horrors of war, he remained a loving husband and father. I admire the man's sense of loyalty & commitment

Outstanding man, an officer and a politician. Highly principled person, which is extremely rare in our society.

I wish I was a soldier in his army, standing next to a great man in battle.

Sharon knew how to stand alone... it's easy to take a right path when the crowd is with you... but it takes real commitment and character to stand alone when the crowd is against you. As a soldier he warned the Israeli government to mobilize... they didn't but he still led the army to victory in the south with the Suez crossing. From the opposition party, he warned the Israeli people about Arafat... as Prime Minister, he took bold action that lead to the demise of Arafat.

A great political leader, ignoring the war crimes and frankly illeagal invasions of palestine, the Lebanon, Syria. The list goes on. He pushed for a isreali nuclear arsenal which should help in the next of isreals great wars.

20 Yisrael Meir Lau

One the best loving Rabbis in the world. (Rabbi means doctor in Latin and master in English). Rabbi Lau is my master. His kindly outlook on the world and its people, his great intellect in Torah and world knowledge and his longing for a world filled with the Peace from Above - a peace made in serenity -, makes me an admirer.
