Rabbi Yudel Shapira zatzal once mentioned the Gemara in Bava Kama 52a:
כד רגיז רעיא על ענא עביד לנגדא סמותא
He then asked, do you think it refers to the likes of Rabin and Ben Gurion? No, it refers to our own leadership…
We have elsewhere dealt with this Gemara ourselves.
Again, for more, see this.
