Yes, but... I'm not.
Politics isn't just a matter of having the right policies. Politics is the most complicated of all fields. Lots of people have the "right ideas" in theory, but getting elected and putting them into practice are the problems.
"Getting elected" is a very broad topic.
- personal charisma
- campaign-- the targeted electorate and technique
- in Israel, choice of party, existing or new, must also be taken into account
I'm told that Moshe Feiglin has many of the same ideas I have about what's good for the State of Israel and the Jewish People. But (yes that word) from the moment he announced that he was taking over the Likud, that the present members aren't real Likudniks etc I groaned, gevalt. That's not how you win supporters and influence people.
And another very important point, you must campaign to all and not limit yourself to just religious or secular. Feiglin is clearly marketing himself to the religious public instead of to all Israelis.
And, yes, the bottom line is that I'm still searching for an Israeli politician and political party to support and trust.
