This is Sara Netanyahu, the wife of Prime Minister of Israel Benjamin Netanyahu. Read her biography below, see photos, and watch a video.
While Barack Obama is rubbing shoulders with his fellow socialists in Europe at the G20, Israel has sworn in it’s new (and old) Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu.
Netanyahu is returning as prime minister a decade after he was voted out of the post. And in a recent interview, he said this of the very real possibility that Iran will go nuclear regardless of any action by the United States or Israel:
“You don’t want a messianic apocalyptic cult controlling atomic bombs. When the wide-eyed believer gets hold of the reins of power and the weapons of mass death, then the entire world should start worrying, and that is what is happening in Iran.”…
“…Several bad results would emanate from this single development. First, Iran’s militant proxies would be able to fire rockets and engage in other terror activities while enjoying a nuclear umbrella. This raises the stakes of any confrontation that they’d force on Israel. Instead of being a local event, however painful, it becomes a global one. Second, this development would embolden Islamic militants far and wide, on many continents, who would believe that this is a providential sign, that this fanaticism is on the ultimate road to triumph.
“Third, they would be able to pose a real and credible threat to the supply of oil, to the overwhelming part of the world’s oil supply. Fourth, they may threaten to use these weapons or to give them to terrorist proxies of their own, or fabricate terror proxies. Finally, you’d create a great sea change in the balance of power in our area—nearly all the Arab regimes are dead-set opposed to Iran’s acquisition of nuclear weapons. They fervently hope, even if they don’t say it, that the U.S. will act to prevent this, that it will use its political, economic, and, if necessary, military power to prevent this from happening.”
Hamas in Gaza, Hezbollah in Lebanon, Iran’s rapidly expanding nuclear capabilities and Israel’s economic problems no doubt contributed to Netanyahu’s return to power. Benjamin Netanyahu is expected to complete the forming of his new government next week.
Sarah Netanyahu is the 44 year old second wife of Israel’s Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu.
Sara Netanyahu is a somewhat controversial figure, having been described by associates and those who have worked for her as ill-tempered and verbally abusive. From firing a nanny and throwing her out in the street for burning a pot of soup, to her first husband Doron Neuberger threatening her with a well publicised tell-all book about their volatile relationship, Sara is well-known for her tantrums and hysterics both at home and abroad. Her husband, Benjamin Netanyahu has defended his wife’s reputation by calling attacks on her as ‘character assassination.’
A former flight attendant, Sarah Netanyahu, graduated from Hebrew University in Jerusalem and is now a psychologist. Sarah and Benjamin Netanyahu have two sons, Yair and Avner, and live in Jerusalem.
