Driving The Likud Bus To A Jewish Destination

September 13 passed uneventfully in Israel. It was supposed to have been a national holiday: the anniversary of the signing of the Oslo Accords.


The Left prefers to sweep the September 13 “peace holiday” under the carpet. The date does not trigger many associations with anything peaceful, but it does conjure up painful images of exploding buses, guards at the entrance to every cafe, separation barriers, Israel’s lost power of deterrence and its low international standing. The bottom line is that September 13 is the date on which Israel surrendered the justice of its existence, gave up its struggle against the largest terror organization in the world, and started the countdown to the loss of the fragile Jewish sovereignty that had been established in Israel after 2,000 years of exile.


Today, 15 years after Oslo and three years after the destruction of Gush Katif, 99 percent of Israel’s citizens understand that the Oslo path leads to destruction. There is no need to explain or convince. Even the great leftist pundits admit that the expulsion was a mistake. No need to worry; they won’t apologize. Not only that, but they will jump at the first opportunity to repeat the mistake. After all, self-destruction is an uncontrollable disease. But in the meantime, they admit it was a mistake.


This presents us with an obvious question. Why is it that the political parties that warned against the danger of Oslo and the expulsion – the National Union and other Orange parties – continue to sink in the polls? They were right and everybody knows it. Shouldn’t that bring them more votes?


Of course they were right. But they have no plan to lead Israel. There are only three buses at the Israel National Bus Station: the Kadima bus, the Labor bus, and the Likud bus. The National Union has some billboards posted in the station, but it does not have a bus. There are also some private taxis at the station for sectoral passengers: the Shas taxi, the Arab taxi and even the Pensioners taxi. But there are only three buses open to everyone. The Israelis don’t quite differentiate between the buses. They all drive on the Oslo highway, and the only visible difference between them is in the names of their drivers.


After the major Zo Artzeinu demonstrations 15 years ago, I understood that it is not enough to say, “I told you so.” It is imperative to provide Israel with a different destination. The bus for the Jewish majority already exists. It is called the Likud. The Likud bus needs to travel on a different route with a new driver, offering its passengers a Jewish destination.


The entire bus establishment has joined forces to throw me out of the bus. They are scared to death. Suddenly, the Jewish majority has created an alternative to Oslo. If I am elected, the pack of lies upon which the “peace elite” has built its power for the last 15 years is in danger of collapse. The inverted pyramid built by the “enlightened” minority at the expense of the peace-drugged Jewish majority just may turn over and come to rest on its broad Jewish base. So the elites are doing their best to scare the public away from me. Even my name has turned into a type of epithet. My supporters are called “Feiglinites.” If the elites turn me into a monster, they do not have to seriously debate my policies.


The good news is that the bus passengers have gotten the picture. “According to polls,” Ayalah Chasson reported on a recent Politika television show, “Feiglin will be elected to one of the top five slots in the Likud, and he may even get a few more Feiglinites onto the list.”


I firmly believe in the renewed Jewish sovereignty in the Land of Israel. I firmly believe that in the end, we will triumph. The nation of Israel has begun to wake up. It has no other choice.
