When Israel is attacked, the world forgives the attackers because, after all, what are we doing here in the first place? In order to win, we must possess a different kind of justification –one that relies on truth.
Regardless that the US withdrawal from the nuclear agreement was best thing that could have happened to Israel, we must stop passing the responsibility for our own defense.
The calculus of Israel's politicians today is that it is easier to deal with the pressure from the family of fallen soldier Hadar Goldin, and to hold out a bit longer until the next round of fighting than it is to confront Hamas.
Oslo, the "gift" that keeps on taking.
There are those who want to remain in servitude to Oslo, to the Left, or to Netanyahu – who gets votes by saying the Arabs are running to the polling booths… and then destroys Amona.
Visiting the places where the horrors were perpetrated certainly benefits our short-term memory of the Holocaust, but we disconnect from the fact that the people of the country we are visiting slaughtered our parents.
The Negev was not allocated for free to whoever was willing to build and farm them (as was the practice in the US and Australia). They were settled quite successfully, however – by the Bedouins, who do not understand how socialism works and simply took the land!
Zionism does not want the Old City of Jerusalem. Trump understands that and now we are beginning to hear hints of his Peace Plan. What does his plan include? The internationalization of Jerusalem--We get the embassy and we lose Jerusalem, G-d forbid. That is the danger.
Feiglin on some of Israel's hot-button topics
If Netanyahu’s name were Shimon Peres or Ehud Barak, none of these affairs would ever have been publicized or investigated. This is not about corruption. It’s about politics.
I think that Netanyahu should go home, but for the right reasons. Netanyahu should go home because he is a strategic danger to the state of Israel. He should not go home because of a political putsch by the Left.
Jews are commanded by the Torah not to deliver a slave into the hands of his owner, and a very small percentage of these people are, indeed, refugees. Though we are responsible for their lives, we do not have to keep them here forever and we do not have to grant them citizenship.
What will happen if the enemy captures one of these female combat soldiers, G-d forbid? Why can’t we take action to prevent these things from happening instead of reacting after they happen? Why do we have to live the most fearsome nightmares when they can so easily be avoided? Just because the politicians are embarrassed to tell the truth?
Moshe Feiglin, leader of the Zehut party, being his candid self.
It is good that the corruption in Netanyahu’s backyard is being investigated and it is good that the public doesn’t like it. However, the level of corruption is currently much lower than under previous PMs.
The same nations that condemn us daily in the UN and send money to Hamas and Hizbullah will one day run to Jerusalem to make peace with us.
What does Bibi Netanyahu mean when he says that "Jerusalem is the capital of Israel"? Trump was very clear what he meant, but I cannot figure out what Bibi means
The establishment of the State of Israel was not contingent – neither legally nor practically – on the UN Partition Plan. What were the actual factors? Two things: the blood of IDF soldiers and the Hashem's miracles.
The IDF began to see itself as a police army whose job was to freeze the situation and safeguard “the peace.” In the process of losing its identity, the IDF has also lost the concept of victory. Because if you do not know who you are, you cannot know who your enemy is.
The Right in Israel retains its rule (because the majority of Israelis are on the Right); the Left retains its hegemony (media, courts) and true power; and the terrorist retains his knife.
Let’s stop living as guests in someone else’s home. Yes, the hos-America-has been very kind to us, but we have overstayed our welcome. The time has come to thank the host and move out to our own place, with our own culture and traditions.
The real question is not why Lot returned to Sodom, but why Avraham endangered his entire historic mission to save him. The answer: Avraham did not only go to war to save Lot; he also went to SAVE his mission which Lot’s capture placed in jeopardy.
Although their values represent a minority, the politically-correct gatekeepers rule Israeli consciousness through all the un-elected power hubs in the country: academia, media, the justice system, welfare systems, government bureaucracy, and the defense system.
Ideologies that forgo the struggle for good from the outset are ideologies that assume that if we forgo our search for the light switch, the light will somehow turn on by itself. Darkness loves those types of vapid ideologies.
World wars made national identity, and later made identity, in general, a dirty word. Seventy years later, humanity once again is seeking identity. The holiday of sukkot exemplifies the concept of identity for the Jewish nation, and all the nations of the world.
