Yes surely Netanyahu does not always reflect God's will or word. Thanks for the reminder.
However, when Netanyahu talks about Israel having "A Place Amongst the Nations" he is not describing the typical assimilation philosophy that renounces the unique call of the Jewish people. Rather, he is articulating a vision in which Israel can find her proper place in the world in order to be a "light to the nations." He rejects the typical religious perspective that separates, but does not associate. I like that.
I also read this book when it first came out in 1993, I think. It is very informative and gives lots of helpful background information.
I would only caution evangelical believers -- whether Jewish or not -- that Netanyahu's outlook and solutions are not those of the God of Israel. And while Bibi may want Israel to have a place among the nations (Gentiles), God has set Israel apart -- unto Himself -- to be a light for these nations to come and have a part with the Israel of God in the coming Millennial Kingdom.
Blessings to you, Abba Lazarus,
