That awesome organizer and blogger Chris Savage at Eclectablog brings us this story that shows what a real leader President Obama is. During the assault on the embassy in Cairo recently, one man – President Obama – quietly avoided what could have been a major setback for any chance of peace in the middle east. President Obama is a real leader and once again, shows that he supports the Israeli people.
Here is Chris’s intro and some highlights from the linked article that explains what happened.
An event took place this past week that didn’t get much attention but shows us that a lot happens in the White House that we never hear about. Efraim Halevy, an Israeli intelligence expert and former head of the Mossad spoke in New York about the recent uprisings in Cairo, Egypt. He tells the story of three Israelis who were trapped in the Cairo embassy and, but for the intervention of President Obama, they never would have made it out alive.
Here are some highlights that detail what happened and why our President is a great leader…one who doesn’t think leadership is talking loud…
We’ve been talking these days about Turkey and about Egypt. And I would like to say something about the event which took place last Friday evening or through the night in Cairo, which I think to a large extent was a seminal event, not only in the history of the Middle East but also in the history of the relations between Israel and Egypt, and between Israel and the United States of America.
