Haetzni's revelation reminds me of Dorothy's ruby red slippers in the Wizard of Oz. We have had the power all this time and we haven't used it. And the most annoying thing about the conference was that there were many speakers from the government, from Likud and NRP aka Bayit Yehudi who are ministers and Knesset Members and they have never used their power or risked giving up their seats and/or Volvos (the Israeli symbol of ministerial perks and status) to officially support the Application of Israeli Sovereignty to Judea and Samaria.
All of a sudden, three weeks before the elections, they rush to get our votes even though we all know that those votes if given will just be used to empower Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu to help the Arabs to establish a Palestinian State in the heart of the Land of Israel. The large hall in the Bayit Vegan hostel was packed with potential voters. This venue was chosen just before the conference because registration was tremendously higher than expected.
Women in Green's Nadia Matar and Yehudit Katzover. I have no doubt that the "silent majority" of the citizens of Israel agree with their opinions/ideology.
|MK Dr. Arye Eldad MD,|
Otzma LeYisrael is not campaigning to be in the coalition, unlike the NRP-Bayit Yehudi which has been musing about possible cabinet portfolios even during their primaries. They may as well join Feiglin in the Likud for all the real power they'll hold. Once subject to coalition or party discipline, they won't have the freedom to vote according to conscience.
Netanyahu does not poll his ministers or MK's before making decisions. So remember that a vote for Likud or NRP-Bayit Yehudi is a vote for Bibi, not for Feiglin, Hotovelli, Elkin, Bennett or any other politician who claims to be pro-Jewish Sovereignty and Jewish Rights in the entire Land of Israel.
Eldad's applause form the audience was overwhelming, but that won't help us if people don't vote for him. The potential for five seats or more is clear. Vote with your conscience and give Eldad and party a chance to keep us safe.
