Meet the Candidate: Albert Levy
Who am I?
I'm a resident of Herzliya, Married, Father of 4, Grandfather of 2 (for now...)
Born in 1952
Country of Origin: Morocco
Made Aliyah in 1994
I'm a businessman. I have established companies in a number of fields (import / export, computers, business real estate, and investments) in a number of countries (France, Taiwan, Hong Kong, America, and Israel).
Today I am the director of a internationally leading high tech company in the field of air quality measurement. We successfully work in Israel, working with the Ministry of Environmental Protection as well as with other customers.
At the same time I act as CEO of two business real estate and investment companies.
I'm an academic, with a bachelors in political science and two Masters, in economics and business management.
I speak a few languages, including French (mother tongue), Hebrew, and English. I made Aliyah 23 years ago at the age of 42.
I have also volunteered before my Aliyah, and in Israel I was a member, vice president, president, and supervisor in the B'nai B'rith organization, "Bonei Yisrael" Office, the French office for the Sharon Area. Afterwards I was elected to two terms as Head of the Sharon Regional Council.
Today I am a member of the board of governors of QUALITA, a non-profit organization dedicated to aiding the absorption of French-speaking Olim as well as helping other associations.
I love spending time with my family, exercising, hiking, and reading!
That our policies simply must be based on the truth: the Land of Israel in it's entirety belongs to the Jewish Nation. And at it's core Jerusalem. And at the heart of Jerusalem the Temple Mount. There was never any Palestinian national identity, nor is there now. The State of Israel must exercise sovereignty over it's land and repeal the cursed Oslo Accords. Period.
That the State of Israel urgently requires a free market without unnecessary and suffocating bureaucracy, monopolies, and cartels in every corner. Amongst other things import tax and other taxes should be lowered and the standards institute should be closed. These factors contribute to the intolerable food prices. The bureaucratic monster known as the Israel Lands Administration should be closed, returning the Land of Israel to the People of Israel. This administration is just a hotbed of corruption and the core reason for the exorbitant housing prices. Period.
That the State of Israel must worry about the Patriotism of it's citizens and MKs. He who pays taxes, including property tax, and at least does national service demonstrates that he wholeheartedly accepts citizenship of a country whose flag is a talit and a Star of David. Otherwise they do not deserve the right to vote. Period.
That in general we deserve a full country with a "skinnier" and less invasive state that allows the intellect of this special nation to show.
That from this perspective the Zehut Party's platform allows for the best possible start! Period.
I thank you for your support!
Am Yisrael Chai!
