It is always easiest to blame the rest of the world and not to make an accounting of your own ideology.
Why throw years of friendly cooperation into the trashcan?
The struggle for Israeli sovereignty on the Temple Mount symbolizes humanity’s struggle in the transition from enslavement to liberty.
Do you really think that retreat from the very foundations of our lives will bring us quiet?
It is unthinkable that Israelis should look at Jonathan through American eyes.
A political tsunami is approaching, and the Jews in the land of Israel are fighting over total non-issues. If it weren’t so sad, it would be comical.
Arab MK Haneen Zoabi (Balad) doesn’t allow us to flee from ourselves. She holds an intelligent, scathing and vital mirror to our faces.
When, against all odds, we managed to restore the Likud and the national camp to power in 1996, it turned out that the Right really didn't have an alternative to Oslo.
My proposal to solve the contentious issue of Israel’s universal draft.
Do we really need to be biometrically marked like animals just to counter the plague of forged identity cards?
If we in the Likud will understand the deep reason for our party’s decline we will continue to securely lead Israel with our national vision.
Israel’s forced Evacuation/Compensation law for Jews was considered to be legitimate, but when I propose that the same principle be applied for Arabs, it is derided as unrealistic.
When people thought that Avigdor Lieberman would someday be prime minister, I explained that Yisrael Beiteinu would disappear from the political map. The reason is that, like Kadima, the former foreign minister’s party is about a person, not a party.
The 2013 Israeli elections were supposed to have been boring. The pundits promised that the final result is already clear and there is nothing new under the sun. However, with less than two weeks to go until the polls open, we are in the throes of one of the most fascinating election campaigns that Israel has known. It is a campaign that faithfully reflects the deep currents of change in Israeli society. Nobody can yet predict its final outcome.
In a 12 year struggle, we have led the Religious Zionists deep into the ruling party. The Likud, in turn, gladly opened its gates wide.
Leading up to Israel’s Knesset elections on January 22, here are more initiatives I hope to bring to the fore in the next Knesset:
People can lose their liberty without feeling a thing. So guard it with the greatest vigilance and do not give anyone your biometric information.
It is amazing to see how the same people can be deceived time and again.
Last week, I detailed parts of my campaign platform for the January 22 Israeli Knesset elections. Here are more proposals:
The main junction from which the different opinions on most issues in Israel diverge is the question of identity. Israel does not have clear borders because it does not have a clear identity. The dispute is not really over peace or security. The dispute is about identity. The more solid our Jewish identity, the stronger the connection between our land and us. The stronger the desire to retreat from our Jewish identity, the stronger our desire to retreat from the land. When we connect to our identity, we will connect to our land and we will merit clear borders and peace.
Israel has a simple option: Immediate withdrawal from the United Nations.
After the Pillar of Defense cease-fire, many now understand what we understood after the Zo Artzeinu demonstrations: The Israeli crisis is not on the continuum between Right and Left. It is on the continuum between Israelis and their Jewish identity.
What is the solution to the constant missile attacks in southern Israel? Those with a solution are the people who warned against signing the Oslo Accords in the first place. These people continue to be sidelined. Clearly, the Oslo advocates have no intention of giving up the profits and perks of the “peace industry” that they have created.
It is morning and my car glides down the mountains of the Shomron into the smog of greater Tel Aviv. Another crazy day of running in the primaries is about to begin. My cell phone rings. A young, determined voice is on the other end.
The ritual of rockets that periodically pummel Israel’s southern communities includes numerous media interviews with the important people. The journalists attempt to extract from anybody who thinks he is somebody some piece of a resolution for this crazy situation that is unparalleled anywhere in the world.
