Message to the Leftists

Do you really think that retreat from the very foundations of our lives will bring us quiet?

When we retreat from our identity and destiny, both embodied by the Temple, we have no chance to justify our existence in Ramat Aviv (Sheikh Munis). Not to ourselves and not to the world.

This column was translated from the Hebrew version, which appeared in Makor Rishon.

About the Author: Moshe Feiglin is the Deputy Speaker of the Knesset and a member of Israel's Security and Defense Committee. He heads the Manhigut Yehudit ("Jewish Leadership") faction of Israel's governing Likud party. He is the founder of Manhigut Yehudit and Zo Artzeinu and the author of two books: "Where There Are No Men" and "War of Dreams." Feiglin served in the IDF as an officer in Combat Engineering and is a veteran of the Lebanon War. He lives in Ginot Shomron with his family.

  1. Left-wing ideology is self-defeating and harmful to Jewish identity. Israel will not be destroyed by Iran or any other Arab country, but its politicians must mantain watch over those within who stupidly want to surrender not only Jerusalem and Jewish territory for the sake of a fake peace. There is only one Israel, and its Holy Temple Mount with Jerusalem as its Capital. That is the main reason for the return of the Jewish People to Palestine.

  2. Jeremiah Ginsberg says:

    What will it be, the mishegas of Obama or the Torah of Moses? "You shall make no covenant with them.. [Sh"mot (Exodus) 23:32].

  3. Do not attempt to Give away land for peace. No permanent peace will come from that. It is a sin against God.

  4. Month by month, and week by week. The middle east spins more out of control. Iran continues unwavering on it’s march in the development of nuclear weapons and Assad the dictator of Syria is still in power. Current intelligence seems uncertain of when Iran will get the bomb and Israel cannot afford to gamble with this. Assad of Syria looks like he may be willing to use weapons of mass destruction against his own people and against near by nations as well. If this situation does not drastically change soon for the better, I believe the war in Isaiah Chapter 17 will likely take place. Damascus Syria would be destroyed. The worlds economy would likely collapse as a result and could usher in a one world government movement. I wrote a small 6 page book that outlines what I believe the Bible states will take place soon as well as the potential trends I see at this time. I don’t accept donations and it’s free. It’s a short read. I encourage you to have a look: http://www.booksie.com/religion_and_spirituality/book/richard_b_barnes/after-the-rapture-whats-next.

    sometimes one has to fight for what he wants.

  6. Alan Feinstein says:

    The very notion of land for peace is beyond misguided, the only land for peace the Arabs are interested in giving us will be a piece of land Six feet by three feet and six feet down,it will be the of the dead,and that is until they desecrate it.

  7. Dvorah Bee says:

    Yes Alan we know what is wrong, we know what we are facing, but instead of talking and doing nothing, what is being done to change it—where is the street leadership? Grass roots??
