What Will Be?

MK Moshe-Feiglin

MK Moshe Feiglin

Editor’s note: This week’s column was written by Moshe Feiglin’s right-hand man, Shmuel Sackett, international director of Manhigut Yehudit.

* * * * * I have spent the past few weeks speaking in many different Jewish communities in the USA. So far, I have addressed over 2,000 people. At every one of my presentations I am asked a simple, three-worded question: “What will be?”

My answer is direct and honest: Until Israel elects a government that bases its actions on authentic Jewish values, our beloved homeland will continue to be pounded by missiles, rockets, terror-tunnels, suicide bombers and everything else the enemy can throw our way.

People who know me are often surprised at this answer since I generally am very optimistic about Israel’s future. They therefore tend to ask me again, “What will be?” When that happens, I switch to my optimistic, positive self and answer that I am positive that what I said is true, yet optimistic that the new leadership we need is on its way!

Folks, let’s be honest. We are losing the game. Our present government is so concerned with world opinion that it spends more time and energy explaining the war than fighting it! Our leadership is desperate for acceptance and love, so it exits Gaza before the job is done. Immediately after yet another ridiculous ceasefire, Israel rushes to show the world how many trucks of humanitarian aid are being sent to help Gaza’s civilians and we make sure this is all filmed in HD quality so the liberals who watch CNN, BBC, and Sky News can see how nice the Jews are.

It amazes me how each and every time a ceasefire is declared, the result is that we cease and they fire. We help their civilians and they use them as pawns in their bloody war of hate. And this is played out time and time again. How foolish can we be?

Let me be perfectly clear: If this is how we play the game, we will lose. By that I mean we will lose everything. Hamas will grow bigger and bigger and eventually Hizbullah – with its 80,000 missiles – will join the “fun” from the north. This will inspire those Arabs living inside Israel who identify with these terror groups, and we will wind up fighting a enemies on all sides – and from within!

You think they have just been digging tunnels in Gaza? Wait until you see what our enemy has in store for us in Hebron, Ramallah, Jenin, and East Jerusalem!

So, what’s the answer? Do we run for our lives? No – heaven forbid! First we must realize how serious the problem is. I am not exaggerating or trying to depress anyone. I am merely stating a fact that the enemy is growing and we are sleeping. The second point is to find a solution, and here is where I return to my jovial, positive self since the solution is already here – we just need to embrace it and help it become a reality.

The solution is strong and proud leadership that bases all its decisions on Jewish concepts and values. There is no need to “reinvent the wheel.” Our Torah spells it all out. We need to fight wars the way Moses and Joshua did. Read about their battles and how they fought. Then continue reading about Yiftach, Gideon, and the mighty Samson. These are not characters in a Jewish super-hero comic book. These men were real and led the nation of Israel with courage and honor.

Actually, it wasn’t only men – make sure you also read about women such as Devorah and Yael and their deeds of valor. These brave women didn’t care about world opinion – only G-d’s opinion – and they fought the enemy until it was completely defeated.

  1. 100%. Israel must be Israel, not a summer home or a puppet for the West. If Israel is not Jewish, it is already lost.

  2. Israel must fight as Torah prescribes. Not by man rules. It’s harsh, but it must be done G-d’s way. This is the apple of His eye and we have to see it His way.

  3. Well written. We are Jews. No one likes us. Arabs and other Gentiles want us all dead. I want Israel to stand strong. Screw world opinion. Remember NEVER AGAIN.

  4. Chaya Mindal says:

    TRUE. BUT we must be independent of the WHOLE world for our energy, water, land, food, shelter, weapons and Jewish population to live in and work the ‘land’ and country.

  5. I think Moshe Feiglin has the vision based on the bible principle. Israel is established only through God’s power and miracles in spite of the mounting obstacles. Israel should therefore rely upon God than listen to the pressures by world’s political leaders. Israel will exist and continue to exist because of God’s plan and purpose.

  6. Mila Sverdlov says:

    I totally agree with Mr.Feiglin. We need to live our lives and fight for our homeland the ways our Biblical ancestors did, if we want to preserve our home.
