I cannot think of anyone but am open to suggestions.
He has caved in to the demands of Hamas.
If he were going to do that anyway then why didn’t he do it years ago? Israel's current situation is more precarious than what it was when Gilad Shalit was first captured.
Sadly I see no Reagan or Churchill on the horizon.

We have seen a clear demonstration of that with the Prime Minister and her team applauding, kissing and congratulating each other on the passage of their carbon tax bills through the House of Representatives.
Only yesterday Newspoll showed a massive primary vote split of 49 to 29 between the dominant, anti-carbon tax Coalition and the struggling, pro-carbon tax Labor government.
Climate change ranked as the lowest priority of the main issues for voters, and even then, more people thought the Coalition would handle the issue best. Polls have shown that well over half the population opposes the carbon tax and little more than a third support it.
Simply, the tax is unpopular.
The political myopia of this self-congratulation is stunning. It only makes a bad situation worse.
Labor promised not to introduce a carbon tax and there is already a good deal of anger from voters about the broken promise. It is being expressed through talkback radio, letters to newspapers, and polling results.
So the optics of jubilant politicians is terrible politics: triumphalism at the trashing of a pledge. Away from Canberra, in the real world, the television pictures will only antagonise voters.
It suggests to voters that the government does not care what they think.
It solidifies a perception of politicians being out of touch - isolated from the daily concerns of voters.
Julia Gillard says she broke her word on the carbon tax because of political necessity and for a higher ideal - healing the planet. If we take that as a given, then a smart politician would look to pass the measure more in sorrow than triumph.
If Ms Gillard really wants to take voters with her on this crusade, she needs to tell them that it was with a heavy heart that she broke her word.
If the Prime Minister gets voters to listen, she might be able to convince some of them that the carbon tax is worthwhile.
But voters won't listen if they think Labor is celebrating how it turned its back on the wishes voters expressed through the ballot box last year.
Obviously enough, mainstream Australians like to be treated with appropriate respect.
Someone in the Prime Minister's office should be aware of these optics. The government should have been seen to pocket the win, in a sober fashion, with no sense of triumphalism.
