But this petition is neither about political correctness nor the acceptance of differing opinions. It is simply the latest attempt to turn a blind eye to truths and discredit our prime minister in the hope of driving him and the Likud Party out of power. The anger-filled visual which they choose to have accompany the petition removes any remaining doubt regarding their intent. Pure and simple, they so dislike Benjamin Netanyahu that they think no trick is too cheap and that every attack can be justified.

Much to their dismay, and to the encouragement of those who truly recognize the miracle that is having a strong Jewish leadership, thinking people can easily see through their tactics and will continue to support his leadership. Built upon his unrivaled record of achievements at home and in the international arena, people appreciate that when the prime minister promises to defend and represent the Jewish people he means it. With the threats against Israel and Jews across the globe only intensifying, we need proud and honest leaders who will stand up and promote our interests.

It is clear that Prime Minister Netanyahu does not represent every Jew worldwide in the political sense of the word.

He will, however, always stand up and defend the rights of every Jew no matter where they may reside.
