The Lubavitcher Rebbe and Bibi Netanyahu

Everyone visited "The Rebbe" and many came away changed. A legend in his own time, the Lubavitcher Rebbe faced lines of people every day, from the poorest of the poor and most pious, to the highest politicians and the secular.

Sadly, for Bibi Netanyahu a visit to The Rebbe was just another photo-op in the world of political game-playing. 

He claimed to have "come for help" but it was only posturing...and nothing has changed, except for his increased willingness to give away our country. 

Too bad he wasn't serious about his request for help, perhaps if he had been, we may indeed have witnessed something great. How different is this meeting from the description Bibi gave of his 1984 meeting with The Rebbe. Watching this clip, I have the distinct impression that The Rebbe knew the kippah, like the visit, was only for the photographers, and that he saw Bibi for what he was, and is today...
