Jerusalem Post: Has Feiglin Moved to the Left?

https://www.jpost.com/Israel-Elections/End-the-occupation-Has-Feiglin-moved-to-the-Left-577617 Zehut ad campaign has longtime right-wing agitator spouting slogans such as ‘End the occupation’ BY LAHAV HARKOV    JANUARY 16, 2019 16:01 Former Likud MK Moshe Feiglin is probably best known for his far-right activism, going back to the days of the Oslo Accords, but a new ad campaign for his Zehut Party features slogans that read like they could be coming from the Center-Left and even the far-Left. “End the occupation,” for example, is one of his campaign’s main slogans. “We have turned into a ridiculous force that does police [...]

ZEHUT Opens Campaign with Tel Aviv Billboards

ZEHUT opened its election drive on Wednesday morning with a major billboard campaign on the main Ayalon Highway in Tel Aviv. Just like a good movie, ZEHUT's election billboard campaign thinks out of the box, is replete with meaning and leaves you thinking: "Why does the Israeli work the most hours in the West, earn the least and pay the most – while Israel is a wealthy state?" asks one of the billboards. "We have We have turned into a ridiculous force that does police work in a conquered land – End [...]

The War Ethics of Benny Gantz: By Moshe Feiglin

  https://youtu.be/vte2EqfWkro “Every Jewish mother should know that she has deposited her sons in the hands of generals who prefer enemy lives (and the foreign forums where they can brag about that) to the lives of her children. Nadav Halamish (who is running in the Zehut primaries) discovered this 2015 speech by Benny Gantz, the Chief of Staff of the Operation Protective Edge defeat – currently running for election at the head of a new party. In his speech (in the video above, in English), Ganz brags that despite the fact [...]

Another Nail in the Coffin of Israel’s Democracy: By Moshe Feiglin

The final snapshot of the outgoing Knesset – the most right-wing and most disgraceful of Knessets in the last decade – was provided at the beginning of this month by Chief Justice Esther Hayut. Hayut decided that the High Court would deliberate on the petitions against the Nationality Bill, which states that Israel is the nation-state of the Jewish People. This bill is a Basic Law, passed by “the Right” in an extremely moderated and watered-down version of the original. Chief Justice Hayut decided that the bill would be deliberated upon [...]

You can also vote in Zehut’s Open Primaries: By Moshe Feiglin

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_rGi9cmN5tU&t=80s Open primaries for all Israelis? What exactly is that? Why should I vote? In Israel, people are not used to true democracy. Our democracy is more technical than intrinsic. We do not choose people. Instead, once in four years, we choose an impersonal political party. The Knesset Members are not chosen by the people, but rather, by their party heads or a small group of members or party insiders. In the US, for example, every citizen has his congressman, whose seat is directly influenced by his constituency. If he [...]

Legalization: A Matter of Life and Death

https://youtu.be/W9ZniK53HMg Moshe Feiglin: "An admixture of arrogance, evil, cynicism and greed have paved the way for this gang of cronies (some of whom featured in my struggle against the Sarel medical company) to gain control of Israel’s cannabis market and to block terminally ill patients from getting the only medicine that helps them. There is no reason to try to fight one of the arms of the octopus by improving the Kafkaesque mechanism, called Hayakar, which was established to serve the monster. The only solution that will save the lives of [...]

Equality or Liberty? By Moshe Feiglin

In a speech to the leadership of the Scouts movement, I explained a simple principle. The more “rights” that we demand of the state, the more that we are depositing in its hands, and essentially giving up, our liberties. When I was asked about equality as opposed to liberty, I answered that equality can only be found in the line for bread in the Soviet Union. Zehut strives for prosperity and quality of life – not equality.

Why Netanyahu has to go: By Moshe Feiglin

PM Netanyahu’s ‘dramatic’ speech to the Nation last night was just more of the same investigation chatter. There is no doubt that Netanyahu is being hounded. But who cares? Netanyahu doesn’t have to go because of cigars and champagne. He has to go because a young couple can’t buy an apartment in Israel. He has to go because he insists on deciding for me where and what my child should study. He has to go because just a month ago, he declared that he would be willing to send my son [...]

A Letter from Moshe Feiglin on the Voting Threshold

26 Tevet/Jan. 3, ’19 Dear Friends, At the beginning of this week, Channel 2 publicized a poll in which Bennett’s new party would get 6 mandates. A parallel poll in the Makor Rishonnewspaper showed the same party getting 14 mandates. How could that be? Is it because of different polling methods? Is it because of the strong will of the Makor Rishon pollsters “to direct” the answers in a certain direction? And perhaps it is a combination of both? It is clear to us that the results of the poll (0.4% for Zehut) reported [...]
