The Right Israeli Dream Team

Formal and informal polls here in Israel show that a growing percentage of the population want a strong Right government.

Yes, I'm among them. The problem is that too many people perceive the Likud and the NRP aka Jewish Home as Right, but they are Center. So many Right votes are wasted on political parties which do not provide Right policies.

  • Remember that the Likud promotes the dangerous "Two State Solution," and 
  • the NRP always sells its soul aka Knesset seats/votes to whomever is in power.
Therefore, I'm looking for politicians, public figures who have had been totally uncompromising in their support for the following:
  • No Palestinian State aka "two state solution."
  • Death penalty for Arab terrorists.
  • Jewish prayer and full Jewish access on Temple Mount
  • Restricted access to Arabs on Temple Mount
  • Full Jewish Sovereignty for Judea, Samaria, Jordan Valley and Golan Heights
  • Jewish building rights in All of the Land of Israel
  • Destruction of illegal Arab buildings in All of the Land of Israel
  • Diplomatic sanctions against all countries that refuse to recognize Jerusalem as Israel's Capital City.
  • Diplomatic sanctions against all countries that recognize the faux state of "Palestine."
Now, who would you put on the list?  Please list your candidates in the comments, thanks.

Leah, Maaleh Adumim said...


yes, I would love to see that on a politician's platform. and I will probably throw away my vote on Otzma L'Yisrael even though they will probably not pass the minimum percent.

even if some of the current politicians (who have an actual chance of getting into the Knesset, unlike Otzma) promise these things, they would not be able to carry them out. that's why Likud and NRP are unable to do them.

Batya Medad said...

a, good start
Leah, I agree. Since MKs are held back by party discipline it doesn't pay to vote for Likud and NRP and all the others presently in Knesset. I'd rather see a Right opposition, like Otzma, G-d willing.

CDG, Yerushalayim said...

I think that unless we do HaShem's will according to Bamidbar 33:50-56, there is no politician who will succeed at all.

They must go. All the goyim in Israel must go, unless they are proven Noahides - and I have not heard yet that we are accepting Noahides officially.

This means Xians as well as Muslims. We must mean what we believe.

To deliver all of this? Only Moshiach, none of the politicians will ever do it. Only Moshiach.

MAOZ said...

I'd go along with all the "planks" you've listed except the one about destroying illegal Arab buildings. Rather than destroy them, I'd want them given over to Jewish families to own.

Janet Clare said...

I'm with Leah too. So far, my choice is Otzma. I'm voting for the party I trust the most, not for people I like in a party controlled by leftist leadership like Likud. I sure wish we had a representative government.

Batya Medad said...

CDG, good points.
Janet, amen!
MAOZ, good idea
dvorah rut, He's waiting for us to be truly ready.

Leah, Maaleh Adumim said...

CDG, please do NOT quote Bamidbar 33 in this context, for two reasons:
a) it specifically refers to the Canaanites, who have no connection at all to the Arabs
b) it refers to "the inhabitants of the land". while the Arabs like to portray themselves as the "inhabitants of the land" and claim to have been here "from time immemorial", the fact is that most of the Arabs in Eretz Yisrael are 20th-century immigrants who came to Eretz Yisrael only after the Jews rehabilitated the land (that had been destroyed by centuries of neglect and abuse by foreign conquerors). quoting a pasuk that refers to "the inhabitants of the land" gives the Arabs an elevated status that they don't deserve.

it is better to simply point out that the Arabs are illegal squatters in our homeland, and not to quote a pasuk that implies awarding them ancient roots in OUR land.

while on the topic, I also want to emphasize that not only is there no connection between Arabs and the Canaanites, Philistines, or any other ancient nation who lived in our land, but also the Arabs are NOT descended from Ishmael. the claim of descent from Ishmael was just something that Mohammed threw into his newly-invented religion in order to claim the prestige of Avraham avinu for his followers. it is possible that *some* of the Arabian tribes at the time of Mohammed *might* have been partly descended from Ishmael. however, after that, the Muslim hordes conquered the whole middle east, imposing their language and religion on their whole empire. today, an "Arab" is anyone throughout the middle east who speaks Arabic - and very few of them have any connection to Ishmael!

Leah,Maaleh Adumim: You are absolutely correct about 'descendants of Yishmael'. Am always trying to correct those who call them our 'cousins', that they are absolutely wrong.

Batya Medad said...

Leah, thanks for the reminder and the facts. I just call them ARABS no euphemisms needed.

CDG, Yerushalayim said...

Leah and Batya -

Thank you for the correction.

I have no intention of implying that the Arabs are connected to the Canaanites or any others of the 7 nations. However, they emulate them and apparently are trying to impersonate them (haven't been successful so far); so they deserve to be treated alike.

I apologize for any playing into their hands that I may have done inadvertently.

Please enlighten us as to who Yishmael's descendants ARE today, if any. I get confused between those who say Arabs are from Yishmael and those who disagree. Do we actually know? And why are some people saying we're under the Yishmaelite Exile if there are no Yishmaelites here?

And I think it would be wise of us to point out the irony that Palestine/Palestinian means Land of the Intruders/INTRUDER - because that's how they label us. I have said in the past that we should have never let go of that name that the Romans foisted on us, seeing what the Arabs did with it. But now I think Golda Meir was right; we just should have poisoned it for everyone else. Even the Romans didn't take its meaning into account, if they even knew.

All the very best to all of us.

CDG: Have read that there are no Yishmaelim today, for about a thousand years. Just like there are no Caananites, Hitties, etc., etc. They have all disappeared, as everyone knows. Surely, there ar remnants of Yishmael (Arabian peninsula, Bedouins, but even there, there is much mixture. The so-called Palestinians are more like the Plishtim (which means invaders). We know them as Amaleikim because of their behavior. There are no Amaleikim today, per se, but they are representative of Amaleik. Just as Muslims represent Yishmael and Xtians are representative of Eisav/Edom.

Batya Medad said...

CDG, the Arabs now living here are mostly from other places, like modern nomads. Many of the clans are here no longer than the Zionist movement. Jewish businesses brought in money and opportunity.

They are not ethnically Arabs either. Arabs come from the Arabian Peninsula. The resident squatters of this country come from all over. The Muslim conquest was all over the place starting from Arabia, continuing through the Middle East and going all the way to North Africa, Spain, Indonesia, parts of China.

yehuda said...

I'm confused... i thought the Arab Yishmaelim came from Arabia, which was known as the homeland of yishmael. They then proceeded to "settle" throuhgout the middle east and north africa, demographically overwhelming the elements of the population who remained (ie who they didnt kill or terrorize thru robbery, and those who were still able to make a living or whatever). as a case in point consider Eretz Yisrael. The Jews were the majority there for some time after the Arabs came (or so I remember seeing somewhere). Then they largely disappeared, for reasons I am not clear on, but there's no reason to assume that the inhabitants of the land of Israel 500 years ago were anything but Arabian settlers, and so why can't the same be true about all the other lands? Also, such claims play into the hands of the Arabs, who claim that they are indigenous (forget abt the recent immigrants, certainly a sizeable minority of today's E. Israel Arabs are from families with pre-Zionism roots) when they are really invaders from the arabian peninsula. Them, and the Egyptians, and the Morrocans, and all of them. All from Arabia.

Of course, it's true that sancherev mixed the nations all up, but on the other hand i think there are a number of chazals that refer to yishmael as a nation that still exists and that we identify as "our brothers". what comes to mind is their behavior after the destruction of the first beis hamikdash.

Batya Medad said...

yehuda, they were never a nation the way the Jewish People are a nation. They have no history of self-rule, which we have.
All some Arabs may have in common is possibly some genetic features, but even that is pretty unlikely today. The Arabic language is widely used but that doesn't make them one people. English speakers or Spanish or French ones aren't different nations/peoples.
