The Migron Litmus Test

21 Nisan 5772 – April 12, 2012
The recent Israeli High Court ruling striking down the compromise agreement between Israel’s government and the residents of Migron was logical. It was a realistic commentary on the state of affairs between the government and the court. In truth, the question that was laid at the High Court’s doorstep was not about Migron and not about property rights. It was much more basic than that. The question that the High Court was asked to decide was to whom the Land of Israel belongs.

Israel’s Little Red Riding Hood

14 Nisan 5772 – April 5, 2012
“Hey, Little Red Riding Hood, what is that dome on your head?” “Grandma-tech knitted it for me out of steel wool,” Little Red Riding Hood proudly answered. “Nice, isn’t it?” “Sure, it’s nice,” answered the wolf, licking his lips. “It fits you very well. But why is it made out of steel wool?”

The Lack Of Vision From Zion

6 Nisan 5772 – March 28, 2012
Nothing is new. The recent murder of the Jews in France should surprise no one. It exposes a dismal reality that is taking shape in Europe and throughout the world.

Iron Dome: The Strategic Disaster

28 Adar 5772 – March 21, 2012
Defense systems are important, just as tank shields are vital. But that is true only when we are on the offensive and focused on victory. In defensive-defeatist mode, these systems draw the end near. They are like aspirin for cancer.

Guard Our Freedom

21 Adar 5772 – March 14, 2012
I oppose the proposed Biometric Law because of how easily it can chip away at a citizen's liberty, without him feeling a thing.

The Shahar Mizrahi Effect

14 Adar 5772 – March 7, 2012
It is impossible not to make a connection between the intentional running over of the policeman this Friday night by an Arab car thief and the Shahar Mizrahi story.

Moshe Feiglin: Transition IDF to a Professional Volunteer Army

7 Adar 5772 – February 29, 2012
Feiglin: I know that religious Zionists think that their army service will pave their way into the heart of Israeli legitimacy. But that is not the case. Army service is a very important value. But those holding the reins will never let go in exchange for religious Zionist cannon-fodder.

Moshe Feiglin: The Hay, The Straw, And The Redemption

30 Shevat 5772 – February 22, 2012
To my fellow Israelis, I say this: The door is open. Just start marching toward leadership, toward liberty, toward destiny. It is not easy, but it is doable. That is what we proved in these elections. The nation is waiting. It is yearning for a life of national meaning and anticipates your leadership.

The Answer Is In Our Hands

23 Shevat 5772 – February 15, 2012
Recent polls show yet again that the vast majority of Israeli society is traditional, holds from its religious faith and shies away from coercion. Thus, hasn’t the time come for our national leadership to express the desires of the large Jewish majority?

A Post-Primary Message

18 Shevat 5772 – February 10, 2012
Before we wrap up the primary campaign, I wish to express a heartfelt thanks to all of my supporters. To push the faith-based alternative uphill, over long years and against all odds, is a task that I could never have done alone.

United We Stand

10 Shevat 5772 – February 2, 2012
If the recent pictures of destroyed outposts had been of Bedouin villages or illegal houses in the Galilee, the whole country would have been up in arms.

A Salute To Migron

3 Shevat 5772 – January 26, 2012
I do not like to give advice to people in times of distress. Every time a settlement facing destruction begins to debate whether to take the “offer” (in other words, the extortion) to leave or to cling to its principles and its place, I adopt our Sages’ advice to not judge others until I am in their place.

The Real Coercion In Israel

25 Tevet 5772 – January 19, 2012
No coercion is good – religious or secular. Today, Israel suffers more from secular coercion than from religious coercion. Unlike the situation in the past, religious soldiers today are forced into combat with women soldiers.

Get The Settlers

17 Tevet 5772 – January 11, 2012
It is wrong to throw rocks at IDF soldiers. We must do all that we can to uproot this phenomenon. But the mad witch-hunt that raged recently has nothing to do with concern for and loyalty to the IDF.

Why I Am Running For Head Of Likud

10 Tevet 5772 – January 4, 2012
There we, Manhigut Yehudit’s strategy team, sat for our first strategy meeting ahead of the upcoming primaries. “According to Likud law, primaries for the party chairmanship will be held in about a year,” I said, “and we have to prepare now.”

The Tyranny Of The Minority

4 Tevet 5772 – December 29, 2011
“This is not the good old Likud that we know,” sighed the party’s veteran princes. “Where is Begin’s liberalism?” cried the journalists. “Where is the Jabotinsky splendor?” “We must guard against the tyranny of the majority.” “Democracy is in danger!” “A murky wave threatens Israel’s democracy!” “A dark Feiglinite dictatorship.”

Will Anyone Admit Wrongdoing?

27 Kislev 5772 – December 22, 2011
“We anticipate a direct conflict with Egypt in the near future,” explained Binyamin Ben-Eliezer, one of the great patrons of the peace accords with Egypt, recently.

The Return Of The Feiglinites

19 Kislev 5772 – December 14, 2011
“The fight for democracy is taking place today within the Likud: between Ruby Rivlin, Michael Eitan and Dan Meridor on one side, and Yariv Levin, Zeev Elkin, Danny Danon and all those who are – conditionally, of course – on [Moshe] Feiglin’s endorsed list on the other.”

It’s All in Your Head

15 Kislev 5772 – December 11, 2011
I began driving on the roads slowly, with my windows open and an Israeli flag flying proudly from my car. I was the victim of far fewer rock attacks than my neighbors, who would fearfully speed through the Arab villages.

The Rise Of Faith-Based Politics

12 Kislev 5772 – December 8, 2011
Note to readers: The following interview is a translation of Moshe Feiglin’s recent interview by Israel National News.
