Eldad cited a “vacuum” in the Right after Yisrael Beytenu merged with Likud and “sits on the same list as [Intelligence Agencies Minister] Dan Meridor” while Aryeh Deri is “pulling Shas to the Left to the days of Oslo.”
“There’s a need for an ideological Right that will say things that were forgotten: No obligations, no rights. The Land of Israel belongs to the People of Israel.”
“[Minister without Portfolio] Bennie Begin is proud of transferring money to Arab towns. Do they pay property tax? Do they pay taxes at all?”
While many of those Israelis who have very similar political opinions to myself are seriously thinking of supporting the NRP, by any other name, still the National Religious Party, I am not attracted to that party at all.
One of the admitted major aims of the NRP and its wannabes is to be part of the ruling coalition. IMHO that should not be an aim of an ideological party. My feeling is that although most voters for the NRP consider ideology, Jewish rights and communities in all of the Land of Israel, important, the wannabes are more concerned with being ministers and part of the elite. You'd think that they haven't noticed how tight Likud Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu ties the nooses around his cabinet to make sure they don't stray from his policies.
Continuing on Bibi's leadership, I don't care how good some of the Likud candidates are, because they have no real power,as MK's or even as ministers. That's what we should all have learned after observing how Netanyahu runs his government. You may consider yourself as voting for Feiglin or Hotobelli, but all you get are Dan Meridor and Ehud Barak.
That's how I see it.
