The Israeli Right's Double-Jointed, Fork-Tongued "Leaders"

Why is it that time after time after time, the minute that Israeli politicians from the Right make it into positions of power they suddenly bend over Leftwards, like human pretzels?

The first big shockeroo, from which we are still suffering was Menachem Begin after he broke the Left's monopoly over the Prime Minister's Office.  Instead of doing what everyone, Right, Left and Center, had expected fully annex all of Judea, Samaria, Jordan Valley, Golan and Sinai, he quickly communicated with Egypt's President Sadat and offered him the Sinai, with the added bonus of destroying all of the Jewish communities which the Leftist Labor party had established.

Destruction of Yamit

The so-called Right wing, pro-Jewish settlement in all of the Land of Israel, Menachem Begin crossed the biggest "red line" in Israeli policy. He destroyed Israeli homes and communities. In charge of "logistics" was Arik Sharon, who apparently developed a taste for that sort of blood, because he, also from Likud, proposed Disengagement which gave the Arab terrorist territory Gaza Gush Katif and destroyed the very communities which had been established as compensation for the Israeli communities which had been destroyed in the Sinai.

Destruction of Gush Katif

The irony of all this is that the Leftist Labor party and its ideological twins could never propose and activate such policies, because the Likud in opposition is always much more Right. The Oslo Accord, the most extreme Left policy that Labor ever succeeded in passing did not do a fraction of the damage done by Likud's Begin and Sharon.

Ruby Rivlin
Naftali Bennett
So now, for all who had been happy that loyal Likudnik Ruby Rivlin had been elected President and that Naftali Bennett's political power has been increasing, recent news has us in the doldrums, yet again. I wrote about Rivlin's inferiority complex in terms of the USA here, and now Naftali Bennett has tied himself in a political knot, too, by supporting the death penalty for Jewish terrorists sic, when it isn't even on the books for Arab terrorists.

We who are loyal to the Land of Israel and promote Jewish Life and Settlement in all of the Land Gd gave us are still looking for a reliable, powerful and effective leader to take us out of this mess.

Moshiach, He is the only one, there is no one else among us

The law is on the books. The courts just never request the death penalty and the SC would overrule them anyway. It's all rhetoric until the narcissistic, solipsistic and nepotistic procedure of appointing judges is changed.

goyish, thanks for correction

There's a reason that the Meretz Party keeps shrinking. First Labor, now Likud, have taken over their policies. Who ever dreamed that Begin-Sharon-Bibi would bring us the so-called "palestinian state" that Yossi Sarid dreamed of?

Who knows what kind of a leader Moshe Feiglin would have been but it is very clear that PM Netanyahu feared him. It's ironic, when they are running for office they have on their best starched 'Right Wing' suit. When they reach office they are eager to show just how flexible they really are. Likud: The party of expulsion.

Emunah, Feiglin's failure was his own fault.

The Jewish Home party has lost all moral credibility. Our much feted Justice Minister is incapable of distinguishing between a criminal and a terrorist, nor does she seem to be aware of the principle of innocent until proven guilty (i.e. proven in a court of law, not trial by an hysterical Israeli media.)

The party's over.

dvorah rut: Yes, it is Moshiach who will be the proper leader.....

Batya Medad said...

And the Jewish People must recognize the Moshiach and Gd's rule. Otherwise we'll just continue as is. It's a process, a long one.

Politicians tend to move towards the center once they are elected, beccause they are confronted with REALITY. They make lofty promises during their campaigns, and once they are in power, they see that things are not as easy as they thought when they were criticising.
The same would go for you. You have a simplistic view, informed by the interests of a very small minority.

Batya Medad said...

The Leftists don't.

Leah said...

Yes, Batya, I hear you on it being a long process- it has already been for many centuries. I pray for it to speed up- and it is. Hashem has a date in mind and we need to get our act together because that time is coming very very soon.

We must do our best and not give up
