Ambassador Dennis Ross – Be Strong and of Good Courage: How Israel’s Most Impor­tant Lead­ers Shaped Its Destiny

Modern Israel’s founding fathers provided some of the boldest and most principled leadership of any nation— now Israel needs their example more than ever. At a time when the political destiny of Israel is more uncertain than at any moment since its modern founding, Be Strong and of Good Courage celebrates the defining generation of leaders who took on the task of safeguarding the country’s future. David Ben Gurion, Menachem Begin, Yitzhak Rabin, and Ariel Sharon were all present at the creation of the new nation in 1948. Over the next sixty years, each served as prime minister at a time when the country’s existence was directly imperiled. In those moments, extraordinary acts of leadership and strategic judgment to secure its future were needed and these leaders rose to the occasion. The strength they showed made them not just the political center of the country but its moral compass. Today, Israel may be on the verge of sacrificing the essential character that its greatest citizens fought to secure. This is the story of that epic struggle.
