... recognition by Israelis of Netanyahu as the Churchill of our times
... stands apart from virtually all other Western leaders

... Netanyahu’s march to freer markets.
... Under Netanyahu’s influence ... Israel systematically began dismantling the welfare state
... sold off Israel’s interests in state enterprises,
... abolished foreign exchange controls and otherwise liberalized the economy,
