Netanyahu: FDR Must Have Been A Hasid of Rebbe Nahman of Breslov

Kikar reports that Netanyahu recited the entire 1338-word Declaration of Independence by heart while on a walk in Washington DC. Pretty impressive.  This is also mentioned in Arutz Sheva's English site.

Kikar also noted (with a video from Israel's Channel 2) that as Israeli PM Binyamin Netanyahu was standing next to a statue of Franklin Delano Roosevelt, he quoted FDR's famous quote, "There's nothing to fear but fear itself."

Later, Netanyahu asked the reporter who was walking with him, "Have you ever hear of Rebbe Nahman of Breslov?"

"Yes", replied the reporter.

Netanyahu continued, "What did he say? כל העולם כולו [All the world is]... Continue!  ... גשר צר מאד והעיקר לא לפחד כלל [...a very narrow bridge, and the main thing is not to be afraid at all].  Do you see?  Roosevelt was a Hasid of the rabbi!"
