BENADOR: Netanyahu, Feiglin, Israel's erev rav fighting to be elected

Elections are also in the air in Israel where we find Prime Minister Bibi Netanyahu fighting to succeed himself despite a self-defeating political agenda that places him in Israel Jewish history at the right side of his evil predecessor, Arik or Ariel Sharon, the ruthless hardcore general whose thick skin made him strong enough to take his Jewish brethren out of their homes and let them look on while he ordered the IDF soldiers to also demolish their homes. Sharon, the hawk with defenseless Jews, gave in and turned to be a dove in the face of rabid Muslim Palestinians whose only goal is to establish their country with no Israel to be found in any of their horizons.

Netanyahu said as part of his election make-believe that he would defend the rights of the Jews living in Judea and Samaria -only to turn around and do exactly the opposite.

In Israel's horizon, however, someone else has now risen to try to endanger Netanyahu's incomprehensible supremacy.

Moshe Feiglin, a hardliner observant Jew from Judea and Samaria, whom obviously the liberal Israeli and worldwide main stream media have not missed a beat hating to love calling him "a settler," is taking his fourth unlikely attempt at defeating Netanyahu.

As it is, Mr. Feiglin intends to pay Palestinians to convince them to leave the West Bank and Gaza, at a rate of $350,000 per family.

Reflecting the view of hard-liners, Feiglin maintains that Netanyahu, despite his uncompromising worldview, is not hawkish enough. True.

To the Prime Minister's discharge, one must say that not much can be expected from an erev rav as him, who places secularism over belief in G-d obviously in the public arena.

But, Mr. Feiglin, an observant Jew, who supposedly reads the Torah and prays to G-d on a daily basis, fails to take a true solid position to defend the Jewish cause in Israel, by only presenting a different style of accommodation to the enemy, when he imagines that those rabid Muslim Palestinians will ever give in to the 350,000 per family. And, if they do so, they will invoke taqqiya rules to betray their commitments and Mr. Feiglin will not be able to complain to anyone.

How can anyone who lives in the region not understand the kind of venom and hate they are surrounded by. What the Muslim Palestinians want from Israel is nothing short of her destruction, they want to push the Jewish people to the sea.

IF someone like Feiglin wanted to do something extraordinary, he should have gone the whole way: No negotiations whatsoever because whoever believes in G-d, needs to make no negotiations and needs to make no concessions. Period.

All else is part of Chilul HaSh-m, the desecration of the name of G-d, allowing others to think that the G-d of Israel is weak and cannot provide for His Children and Protect them, which is not true, because we have seen throughout History that whenever the Jews have believed in G-d unhesitatingly, He has come through.

The erev rav is personified in the likes of Netanyahu, Feiglin, Ehud Barak and so many god-less cowards, and History has always shown that there is so much, people can desecrate G-d's name... until the day when they are wiped off, unable to raise a hand and defend themselves, because they do not even deserve to be given that chance.

May G-d be blessed forever and ever.


Netanyahu set to win party primary ahead of U.S. poll

By Allyn Fisher-Ilan

JERUSALEM | Mon Jan 30, 2012 1:51pm EST
(Reuters) - Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu is poised to win a new mandate to lead his right-wing Likud party Tuesday in a primary vote which may signal he favors an early parliamentary election to strengthen his hand with Washington.

National elections are not due until late 2013, and Netanyahu's decision to hold the Likud primaries now has raised speculation that he intends to call a national vote closer to the time of the U.S. presidential election late this year.

Political commentators say a Likud victory in a parliamentary poll held before or shortly after the U.S. vote in November would leave Netanyahu better placed to deal with Barack Obama, with whom he has had a frosty relationship, if the Democrat is re-elected.

Many Israelis worry that Obama, in a second term, may exert greater pressure on Israel to yield land for peace with the Palestinians, which could upset Netanyahu's clout in his pro-settler party and its core conservative electorate.

His coalition government of right-wing and religious parties has shown few cracks and opinion polls show that Likud would emerge on top if a parliamentary election were held now.

In the Likud leadership poll, Netanyahu's only challenger is a far-right settler who has no chance of unseating him.

"It's a done deal," Danny Danon, one of the Likud's most prominent legislators, said about the primaries.

"There is no tension or competition. Our main battle is with Kadima," he said, referring to the centrist, main opposition party led by former foreign minister Tzipi Livni.

Danon said he saw a possibility of Israel holding the general election later this year. While Netanyahu has not said he wanted an early poll, "he prefers to lead and not be dragged there," Danon told Reuters.


Netanyahu's opponent in the Likud race is Moshe Feiglin, 49, who lost a party contest to him in 2007 but hopes to win more than the 24 percent of the vote he polled then.

Results of Tuesday's poll are expected to be announced by early Wednesday.

"I want to return the Likud to its real path," Feiglin told Reuters. Feiglin opposes Netanyahu's embrace of a Western goal of a two-state solution to the Israeli-Palestinian conflict.

U.S.-sponsored peace talks stalled shortly after they began in 2010 in a dispute over settlement building in the occupied West Bank.

Feiglin applauded U.S. Republican presidential hopeful Newt Gingrich for recently calling the Palestinians an "invented people" and thought Israel should pay Palestinians living in West Bank land they seek for a state to leave.

"They don't deserve a state, certainly not in land that God promised the Jews," Feiglin said.

Though Feiglin's views mirror those of many pro-settler lawmakers in Likud, he is supported by few in the party's mainstream.

But political analyst Jonathan Rhynold of Bar-Ilan University said Netanyahu had reason to be wary of Feiglin.

"The Israeli public is not where Feiglin is. Any rise in Feiglin's influence in the party can hurt Netanyahu," he said.

The Likud poll will be followed by a Kadima primary election on March 27. Both Kadima and the left-of-center Labor party have been actively recruiting popular figures, and some influential wild cards, such as former journalist Yair Lapid, have thrown their hats into the electoral ring as well.
