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.

Learning The Lessons From Shamir’s Mistakes

9 Kislev 5772 – December 4, 2011
Yitzhak Shamir was arguably the most determined and stubborn Israeli prime minister since David Ben-Gurion. In the winter of 1991, during the first Gulf War, Shamir was faced with an existential dilemma that is very reminiscent of the current quandary that we face.

This Is Our Land!

28 Heshvan 5772 – November 24, 2011
The destruction of Jewish homes in the Land of Israel continues, as if there is no way to prevent the State of Israel from self-destructing, no way to prevent it from sending the riot police to carry out the goals of Peace Now.

More Dangerous Than A Nuclear Bomb

20 Heshvan 5772 – November 17, 2011
Is Israel preparing to attack Iran? According to media reports, Prime Minister Netanyahu is trying to convince his ministers to go on the offensive. If that is true, Netanyahu will go down in history as the prime minister who saved the State of Israel from destruction – not necessarily nuclear.

An Unforgettable Rosh Hashanah

15 Heshvan 5772 – November 12, 2011
Last Rosh Hashanah 5771, I walked with a heavy heart to the small synagogue in the hospital at Tel Hashomer. Two and a half months had passed since my son David’s terrible accident, and he was still unconscious. The doctors remained split. Some tried to explain that this type of injury did not leave room for optimism. The days, weeks and months that passed seemed to wither our hope.

It’s Not About Shalit

5 Heshvan 5772 – November 2, 2011
Polls taken just prior to Gilad Shalit’s release show that the main opposition to the deal was in the national religious sector. How can we explain this? Are national religious people heartless?

My UN Speech

28 Tishri 5772 – October 26, 2011
Honorable representatives of the nations, I chose to come here today to tell you the truth. Since the miraculous war in which the God of Israel led us to redeem Jerusalem, the Temple Mount and Israeli territory until the Jordan River, a strange costume ball has been taking place in this building.

What Threatens Israel’s Media?

7 Tishri 5772 – October 5, 2011
The main item on State Radio Channel 2's agenda recently was Channel 10's apology to Sheldon Adelson. Some background: A few months ago, Channel 2 News broadcasted a lengthy report accusing the billionaire founder of the pro-Netanyahu newspaper Yisrael Hayom, Sheldon Adelson, of illegally gaining rights to build a casino. The report turned out to be false and the station was forced to broadcast an apology. The media claimed that the Channel 10 stockholders, who feared financial repercussions by Adelson, coerced the staff to apologize. Karen Noibach also devoted precious airtime to performer Yehudah Pollicker. Israel Army Radio featured the 10th anniversary of 9/11. Afterwards, the two stations switched stories.

Some Thoughts On Israel’s Housing Crisis

3 Av 5771 – August 3, 2011
Who caused Israel's housing shortage? The Left. That sounds demagogic, but here's the reason why:

It’s Not About Freedom Of Torah Thought

18 Tammuz 5771 – July 20, 2011
When the recent spontaneous protests against the arrests of Rabbis Dov Lior and Yaakov Yosef gave way to official spin, the provocative initiators from the Attorney General's office likely breathed a sigh of relief. Once again, the "enemy" had painted himself into a patently irrelevant corner, and the partisan justice system - growing public disgust with it notwithstanding - remained the only show in town.
