Israel's Right United, Right?

Israeli Politics is complicated


It seems that Shaked, Bennett, Peretz and Smotrich have done their pragmatic best to unite their political parties for the upcoming elections. And I'm even happier to see that Moshe Feiglin isn't part of the bloq.

I have no doubt that this hasn't been easy. The NRP is now headed by a political newbie who doesn't seem to have a clue, and there's bad blood between the parties. But for the good of the State of Israel they've figured out how to make a coalition of sorts and run as one party.

They haven't yet published the exact Knesset list, but I'm glad to see that Matan Kahana is included. I was very impressed by him when he spoke in Shiloh a few months ago.

I want a strong Right wing party to the Right of the Likud in the Knesset. Like a strong magnet, it should pull the Likud Rightwards.

Matan Kahana, who may be #7 on the "joint Right list"

Israel's right must unite, because the Lunatic Left
is Hell-bent on destroying: the Jewish State
and the Jewish Faith and the Jewish People.

[In many Muslim countries], corrupt rulers
play an intricate game to stay in power.

Their signature move is the promise to “free” the
Holy Land — that is, to eliminate the Jewish state.

There is very little freedom of expression in
Muslim-majority countries, and state-owned
media churn out anti-Semitic and anti-Israel
propaganda daily — as do even media groups
that style themselves as critical of Muslim
autocracies, such as Al Jazeera
and Al-Manar.

from the Jewish Virtual Library:

“Leading up to Israel's independence in [year] 1948,
it was common for the international press to label Jews,
not Arabs, living in the [British] mandate as Palestinians.

It was not until years after Israeli independence
that the Arabs living in the West Bank and
Gaza Strip were called Palestinians.”

“Outside of the Orthodox community,
where Jews are proud to be Jews,
and are observing Jewish Law...

In state-after-state, temple-after-temple, what
I saw and what I witnessed was a nightmare:

You see [non-Orthodox] Rabbis, so-called Rabbis,
leaders, supposedly leaders, standing at a podium,
and all they can tell to their listeners, is that Israel
is an apartheid state, and that Judaism is racist.

That is what they preach, over
and over and over and over again ...”

“Under the Trump administration, the United States
argued that UNRWA [United Nations Relief
and Works Agency for Palestine Refugees]
has perpetuated, rather than helped, end the
Israeli-Palestinian conflict, by extending
refugee status to the children, grandchildren
and great-grandchildren of those who fled Israel
during the establishment of the Jewish state in 1948.”
