We Have No Leaders


Professor Shaul Kimchi, an expert in the field of psychology of leadership, said, Friday, that Israel shares the void in leadership that is a worldwide phenomenon. Interviewed by Arutz Sheva's Hebrew service, theֲ head ofֲ the psychology faculty at the Tel-Chai College said, "In the past, a leader was a man with integrity, someone who presented a vision and it was really true to what he says.ֲ ֲ Today, there is no such thing. The general feeling is that in order to succeed in politics, they don't have to be greatֲ leaders, but should be capable of manipulation, to create alliances and display the image that that you are not committed to it."

Professor Kimchi added,ֲ "The feeling is very negative. Theֲ image of the Knesset is very low. Ask people on the street.ֲ They will tell you, in any case, that the leaders make promises and break them after the elections."
