Fondly called the land of milk and honey, Israel is one of the most popular countries in the Middle East that forwards people a rich blend of heritage, culture, modernity and religion. And much of that has been because of Israeli nationals and leaders who have crafted a unique space for themselves on the global platform. Humanitarian, ambitious and goal-oriented, Israeli leaders are all of them and much more. While Israel has been under the rule of powerful leaders since times immemorial, some of them created a niche for themselves and the country through their administrative skills and friendly policies. Yitzhak Rabin is one such Israeli leader. A Nobel Peace Prize winner, he became the first native-born prime minister of Israel in 1974. Rabin’s most acknowledgeable work as an Israeli leader was his peace negotiation with Palestinian leader Yasser Arafat. But the list does not end with Rabin alone. Other prominent Israeli leaders who left a lasting footprint on the country and the world map are Golda Meir, Benjamin Netanyahu, Shimon Peres, Ariel Sharon, Chaim Weizmann, Menachim Begin, David Ben-Gurion and so on. a reading of this section will help you acquaint yourself with top Israeli leaders of all times.
