Benjamín Netanyahu

Fecha de nacimiento: 21. Octubre 1949
Otros nombres: Bibi Netanyahu

Benjamín «Bibi» Netanyahu , es el actual primer ministro de Israel. También se desempeña actualmente como miembro de la Knéset, presidente del partido Likud y ministro de Relaciones Exteriores.

Nacido en Tel Aviv de padres judíos seculares, Netanyahu es el único primer ministro israelí nacido en Israel después de la creación del Estado. Netanyahu se unió a las Fuerzas de Defensa de Israel durante la guerra de los Seis Días en 1967 y se convirtió en un líder de un equipo de la unidad de fuerzas especiales Sayeret Matkal. Participó en muchas misiones, incluyendo la operación Infierno , la operación Regalo y la operación Isótopo , durante la cual recibió un disparo en el hombro. Luchó en el frente de batalla en la guerra de Desgaste y de la guerra de Yom Kipur en 1973, participando en las incursiones de las fuerzas especiales a lo largo del canal de Suez, y dirigiendo luego un asalto de comando en lo profundo del territorio sirio. Alcanzó el grado de capitán antes de ser dado de baja. Después de graduarse del Massachusetts Institute of Technology con los grados de B.S. y M.S., fue contratado como consultor económico por el Boston Consulting Group. Volvió a Israel en 1978 para fundar el Instituto Antiterrorista Yonatan Netanyahu, con el nombre de su hermano, quien murió liderando la operación Entebbe. Netanyahu sirvió como embajador de Israel ante las Naciones Unidas desde 1984 hasta 1988.

Netanyahu se convirtió en el líder del Likud en 1993 y ganó las elecciones de 1996, convirtiéndose en el primer ministro más joven de la historia de Israel, sirviendo su primer período entre junio de 1996 y julio de 1999. Abandonó la arena política por el sector privado después de haber sido derrotado en la elección de primer ministro de 1999 por Ehud Barak. Netanyahu regresó a la política en 2002 como ministro de Relaciones Exteriores y ministro de Finanzas en los gobiernos de Ariel Sharón, pero se apartó del gobierno por desacuerdos con respecto al plan de desconexión de la franja de Gaza. Como Ministro de Finanzas, Netanyahu se comprometió a una reforma importante de la economía israelí, que fue reconocida por los comentaristas por haber mejorado significativamente el desempeño económico posterior de Israel. Retomó el liderazgo del Likud en diciembre de 2005, después de que Sharón lo abandonó para formar un nuevo partido, Kadima. En diciembre de 2006, Netanyahu se convirtió en el oficial líder de la oposición en la Knéset y presidente del Likud. Después de la elección parlamentaria de 2009, en la que el Likud quedó en el segundo lugar y los partidos de derecha obtuvieron la mayoría, Netanyahu formó un gobierno de coalición. Después de la victoria en las elecciones de 2013, se convirtió en la segunda persona en ser elegida para el cargo de primer ministro por un tercer mandato, después del fundador de Israel, David Ben-Gurión.

En marzo de 2015, Netanyahu fue elegido para su cuarto mandato como primer ministro, igualando el récord de David Ben-Gurión. Se convirtió en el único primer ministro de Israel electo tres veces seguidas . Si Netanyahu completa su actual mandato, se convertirá en el primer ministro que ocupó el cargo por más tiempo en la historia de Israel, actualmente es el segundo después de David Ben-Gurión.

„I can guarantee you this, the days when the Jewish people remained passive in the face of genocidal enemies, those days are over!“

—  Benjamín Netanyahu

2010s, 2015, Address to the United States Congress (March 2015)
Contexto: I wish I could promise you, Elie, that the lessons of history have been learned. I can only urge the leaders of the world not to repeat the mistakes of the past. Not to sacrifice the future for the present; not to ignore aggression in the hopes of gaining an illusory peace. But I can guarantee you this, the days when the Jewish people remained passive in the face of genocidal enemies, those days are over! We are no longer scattered among the nations, powerless to defend ourselves. We restored our sovereignty in our ancient home. And the soldiers who defend our home have boundless courage. For the first time in 100 generations, we, the Jewish people, can defend ourselves. This is why; this is why, as a prime minister of Israel, I can promise you one more thing: Even if Israel has to stand alone, Israel will stand. But I know that Israel does not stand alone. I know that America stands with Israel. know that you stand with Israel. You stand with Israel, because you know that the story of Israel is not only the story of the Jewish people but of the human spirit that refuses again and again to succumb to history's horrors. Facing me right up there in the gallery, overlooking all of us in this august chamber is the image of Moses. Moses led our people from slavery to the gates of the Promised Land. And before the people of Israel entered the land of Israel, Moses gave us a message that has steeled our resolve for thousands of years.

„The labeling of products of the Jewish state by the European Union brings back dark memories. Europe should be ashamed of itself. It took an immoral decision. Of the hundreds of territorial conflicts around the world, it chose to single out Israel and Israel alone, while it's fighting with its back against the wall against the wave of terror.“

—  Benjamín Netanyahu

Speech at the Knesset, as quoted in The Jerusalem Post http://www.jpost.com/DiplomacyAndPolitics/Article.aspx?id=243895 (31 October 2010)
2010s, 2010

„Fortunately, President Obama and most world leaders understand that the idea that Iran's goal is not to develop nuclear weapons is ridiculous. Yet incredibly, some are prepared to accept an idea only slightly less preposterous: That we should accept a world in which the Ayatollahs have atomic bombs. Sure, they say, Iran is cruel, but it's not crazy. It's detestable but it's deterrable. Responsible leaders should not bet the security of their countries on the belief that the world's most dangerous regime won't use the world's most dangerous weapons. And I promise you that as Prime Minister, I will never gamble with the security of Israel. From the beginning, the Ayatollah regime has broken every international rule and flouted every norm. It has seized embassies, targeted diplomats and sent its own children through mine fields. It hangs gays and stones women. It supports Assad's brutal slaughter of the Syrian people. Iran is the world's foremost sponsor of terror. It sponsors Hezbollah in Lebanon, Hamas in Gaza and terrorists throughout the Middle East, Africa, and South America. Iran's proxies have dispatched hundreds of suicide bombers, planted thousands of roadside bombs, and fired over twenty thousand missiles at civilians. Through terror from the skies and terror on the ground, Iran is responsible for the murder of hundreds, if not thousands, of Americans. In 1983, Iran's proxy Hezbollah blew up the Marine barracks in Lebanon, killing 240 American servicemen. In the last decade, its been responsible for murdering and maiming American soldiers in Afghanistan and Iraq. Just a few months ago, it tried to assassinate the Saudi Ambassador in a restaurant just a few blocks from here. The assassins didn't care that several Senators and members of Congress would have been murdered in the process. Iran accuses the American government of orchestrating 9/11, and it denies the Holocaust. Iran brazenly calls for Israel's destruction, and they work for its destruction – each day, every day. This is how Iran behaves today, without nuclear weapons. Think of how they will behave tomorrow, with nuclear weapons. Iran will be even more reckless and far more dangerous.“

Speech at the American Israel Public Affairs Committee Policy Conference http://www.aipac.org/pc/videos/2012/monday-gala-plenary/prime-minister-benjamin-netanyahu (March 2012).
2010s, 2012

„As Hamas's charter makes clear, Hamas's immediate goal is to destroy Israel. But Hamas has a broader objective. They also want a caliphate. Hamas shares the global ambitions of its fellow militant Islamists. That’s why its supporters wildly cheered in the streets of Gaza as thousands of Americans were murdered on 9/11. And that's why its leaders condemned the United States for killing Osama bin Laden, whom they praised as a holy warrior.So when it comes to their ultimate goals, Hamas is ISIS and ISIS is Hamas. And what they share in common, all militant Islamists share in common. Boko Haram in Nigeria; Ash-Shabab in Somalia; Hezbollah in Lebanon; An-Nusrah in Syria; The Mahdi Army in Iraq; And the Al-Qaeda branches in Yemen, Libya, the Philippines, India and elsewhere. Some are radical Sunnis, some are radical Shi'ites. Some want to restore a pre-medieval caliphate from the 7th century. Others want to trigger the apocalyptic return of an imam from the 9th century. They operate in different lands, they target different victims and they even kill each other in their quest for supremacy. But they all share a fanatic ideology. They all seek to create ever expanding enclaves of militant Islam where there is no freedom and no tolerance – Where women are treated as chattel, Christians are decimated, and minorities are subjugated, sometimes given the stark choice: convert or die. For them, anyone can be an infidel, including fellow Muslims. Ladies and Gentlemen, Militant Islam's ambition to dominate the world seems mad. But so too did the global ambitions of another fanatic ideology that swept to power eight decades ago. The Nazis believed in a master race. The militant Islamists believe in a master faith. They just disagree about who among them will be the master… of the master faith. That's what they truly disagree about. Therefore, the question before us is whether militant Islam will have the power to realize its unbridled ambitions.“
