Make Gaza The Middle East’s Riviera

MK Moshe-Feiglin

MK Moshe Feiglin

The collapse of support for Prime Minister Netanyahu (from 82 percent during the ground incursion in Gaza to 38 percent today) was to be expected. The job of every head of state is to provide security to his or her citizens. If security is compromised, the head of state loses support.

All those disappointed in Netanyahu, however, must understand the dynamics of their deteriorating security situation. Netanyahu is still operating within the Oslo framework – a framework that assumes that the creation of a Palestinian state will alleviate Israel’s security problems. But this framework is actually the root of the problem, and the public cannot expect Netanyahu to conjure up a solution within its bounds.

I personally am completely opposed to an Israeli invasion of Gaza if we will retreat once again or rule colonial-style over the Arab population. I am opposed to any temporary solution that will endanger our soldiers.

The only workable solution is for Israel to conquer Gaza and help its residents emigrate. Those who wish to stay can do so in a Gaza with a solid Jewish majority. Gaza must become a thriving Israeli city – the Riviera of the Middle East – with modern tourism, cutting-edge technology, and all the amenities of a modern city.

My plan consists of four elements:

1. We must recognize that Israel is our land, not theirs – Gaza included. No more talk of the two-state solution. One state for one people.

2. The IDF must conquer Gaza in accordance with Western military doctrine.

3. Israel must encourage and provide aid for Arab emigration. Instead of the nearly trillion shekels that Israel has invested to date in the Oslo two-state solution, we can invest in encouraging Gazans to relocate with financial security. Financially-secure immigrants are welcomed in most countries.

4. Israel must encourage aliyah and Jewish settlement in Gaza. Within the next decade, we will be seeing 1.5 million Jews immigrating to Israel. Encourage them (and veteran Israelis) to settle in Gaza and make it flourish.

This is the only pragmatic, realistic solution on the horizon. But to realize it, we need leadership that believes the land is actually ours.

  4. If the Pals weren’t so stupid they might have tried that themselves.

  5. Rich Tabron says:

    Israel is not their land . Stop lying you devils.

  6. There must be a two state solution. The crux of the matter is how, if ever we get there.

  7. Hinda Blas says:

    He’d be a great PM

  8. Completely agree and support!

  10. Spoken truly there is no Palestine forget it go to Jordan and we close the chapter

  11. Paul Miranda says:

    Wonderful statement.

  12. John Newman says:

    As part of Biblical Israel the land should be supervised. How about making Gaza City with Askelon? Maybe not just yet!

  13. John Newman says:

    Sorry I meant that they should be twin cities.

  14. I totally agree with Moshe Feiglin, NO SECOND STATE, get the Palestinians out of Israel, Egypt has offered them Land, why don’t they want to accept it. Israel must make up their minds for them and kick them out of GAZA.

  15. Hope Faith says:

    It’s HaShems Land

  16. And if we never get there? Then what? I’m not opposed to a two state solution but your point reminds me that the chances of it happening and creating a safe Israel are small.

  17. God give israel to moses @ hiscendance.

  18. He is right God gave the land of Israel to Israel the Palestinians need to go home to Syria and jordan

  19. Ed Kaplan says:

    Its more there land than NC is your land recheck. Unless your one of America’s original population. Are you Indian decent? I dought it.

  20. Ed Kaplan says:

    The Only way a 2 state solution would work is if the PA. Converted Jews to muslims or the other way around. Never going to happen! Solution, level Garza!

  21. Ed Kaplan says:

    Egyptian government offered twice the amount of land of Gaza to the PA. in Egypt. PA. turned it down.

  22. Rich Tabron says:

    Why dont you move back to the caucus mountains ?

  23. Rich Tabron says:

    You people are not from any biblical lands. You know it. Stop lying. ..

  24. David Grim says:

    You need to give Gazans a place to go. How about Iran?

  25. Clay Preston says:

    and if the Arabs get control of the Knesset???

  26. I know.. And they refused

  27. As I said there’s snakes in the den!! They have more than proved to be..against…the Jews.. It would be a cold day in hell.. Before they would stay on my land.. Long live Israel!! .. Thank you Ed!! I’m reading everything from there.. These Jewish people are well worth their weight..they have had enough of this treatment..it needs to stop.., without the Jews.. All of Europe ..would be a slum!! God bless Israel!!
    U.S.A!.. Boston, Mass.

  28. If there were a Nobel Prize for Menschlichkeit, Moshe Feiglin would win it!

  29. Amen to that! If Arabs want to live as Israeli citizens in a free democracy, and behave like civilized human beings, then I have no problem with sharing the land with them. (Every criminal should be deported to the middle of the Sahara Desert.)

  30. I do not agree with "sharing the land with them"…because "them" are savages and civilized people cannot share habitat with savages. They should be left alone, BUT, if they attack they should be SERIOUSLY attacked back and killed as many of them as possible and MORE!

  31. I SO AGREE WITH YOU! BRAVO!!!

  32. Barb Nisenson Well….why don't we vote for him??? I'd be the first one to give the vote if I were an Israeli citizen! :o)

  33. Moishe, will you run for president or minister the next time please??? We need someone who will FIGHT for Israel and the Israelis, not to bow to its enemies in fear. YOU are the last hope of the entire Israel!
