Ehud Barak accused of being the Napoleon of Israel

Defense Minister Ehud Barak seems to be «living on another planet» based on extravagant spending on five-star hotels with the use of taxpayer money.

Men and women in power will always be tempted. Please pray for Ehud Barak, Barack Obama and Tripi Livni

As Defense Minister Ehud Barak continues to be the subject of a torrent of criticism over his extravagant spending. Israelis are becoming increasingly aware of the decorated former general’s lavish lifestyle.

According to an in-depth expose published on Sunday by the daily Yisrael Hayom, Barak would often use his high-rise luxury apartment in north Tel Aviv to host wealthy captains of industry, billionaire businessmen, influential journalists, foreign diplomats and dignitaries, and politicians whom he lobbies for support.

Barak likes to regale his guests in the spacious apartment while boasting of his various expensive “toys” and wares, including a sophisticated telescope which he used to peer out onto the city from the 31st floor, according to Yisrael Hayom. Barak this year put the 350-meter apartment in the prestigious Akirov Towers on the market for $10 million.

The defense minister has outfitted his residence with an automated sound and lighting system, electronic shutters, a dining table that can sit upwards of 40 people, and his most prized possession – an easel which holds a large photo album containing meter-by-meter pictures.

My comment:

The Jewish nation do not need more corruption charges against its leaders. It is harmful for the image of Israel that both the the former President and Prime Minister have been under trial for serious crimes.

Ehud Barak is the highest decorated officers in the IDF, and a hero of the Jewish people.

But men in Power will always be exposed to temptations in the form of money and fame.

Jesus the Messiah said, through His Jewish Apostles Paul:

1 Timothy 6:10

For the love of money is a root of all kinds of evil. Some people, eager for money, have wandered from the faith and pierced themselves with many griefs.

People of Israel. Do not put your trust in your political leaders. Put your trust in God of Israel and His Messiah.
