Rufus1988 (28 December 2014) was an Israeli politician, former President of Israel, member of Israeli Reform Party and Press director of the Desert Fox News.

Despite his young age, he was known for his emerging and agile character, who wanted to change Israeli politics. He was elected the most promising newbie of Israel by Latest Updates.

Media career

Initially, he was only working as a journalist in the Desert Fox News, where he wanted to establish the base of investigative and critical journalism. As he always said: "The journalism is a genre of opposition."

He edited the Question Time - an "old school type" talk show - where he was making interviews with famous public figures, seeking to reveal the contradictions, and asking what everybody fears.

Political ideology

He totally rejected the dictatorship, his personal conviction was the state has to do everything to avoid the autocracy.

 The best dictator is even worse than the worst democracy. 

In Congress, he often closed his speeches with the following sentence: "Furthermore, I consider the dictators must be destroyed."

He was a conservative-liberal politician, who believed in the free-market, however, he favors the domestic economy and entrepreneurs. The role of the state is to equalize the competition between the more competitive foreign entrepreneurs and the domestic companies encouraging domestic production. He believes the state should not privilege disproportionately domestic companies. The target is only to create a necessary favorable economic environment.

He supported low-income and value added taxes, and moderately low countervailing custom tariffs. He rejected socialism and strong economical interventions where the state ignores the principles of free-market, and distorts the market.

He said, the citizens can not live in a country where the state is responsible for everything and no one is responsible for the state. He believed in the power of a conscious community. They are to be strengthened by the state.

Early career

He became a representative candidate of his party soon, then he was elected as the Member of Congress on 25 January 2015. The party leaders chose him as a Spokesman. He fights for conservative-liberal and democratic values in his party. He had some debates with members of Cabinet, but due to pressure from his party and his good relations with the party president John Rupert Miranda he was appointed as Minister of Education. His young age generated debates between the majority parties and the former Minister of Education XAvivX. He overcame the conflict soon, and his position was stabilized in the government.

Member of Congress

In the campaigns, he viciously attacked the politicians without a program and perspective in Israeli Politics.

 A politician without perspective is like a car without an engine. They will be rusted in the garage, and take up the place. The solution is more simple than many people imagine it. We just have to replace them with a new one, a faster one. 

He was elected as a Congress Member on 25 Jan 2015. It was expected because he was the third on the party list. He was the party-list #1 in February, March and May 2015 elections.

Tax policy

In his first term, he was one of the most active members in Congress of Israel. According to his political beliefs, he proposed tax reform and increased the import tariffs of food, and weapons to 8%. It was the first significant tax increase which was accepted in the previous half-year. The proposal was supported by the majority of Congress despite the former practice namely they have rejected the all tax increase.

The tax reform has prompted discussions. The honorable member responded to the opposition and stood by the Kosher Movement in a press conference:

 Yes we support the local market, yes we help them to create more jobs, yes we make a competitive economic environment in a program where the community, and the government stand hand in hand to make this country a better place. And what a policy is which leaves the country and its hard working entrepreneurs strangled by foreign companies? We see its results. I am proud that we can increase productivity within the limits of free market competition. Our mission is to set the economy on its own feet. Our duty is to eliminate its obstacles. And of course, we will do it. 

Military career

Rufus1988 was a soldier of the eIsrael Defense Forces, a unit where he was ultimately promoted to the position of the captain of the 4th regiment.
