Who Is the Sovereign in Israel?

MK Moshe-Feiglin

MK Moshe Feiglin

The lords of the land could have waited six months or so to go after Gabso. After all, they have waited for years until now. Why arrest him a week after the elections?

I have no idea what Shimon Gabso did or did not do. But one thing is completely clear to me: nothing that Gabso did can be more corrupt than a legal adviser or a retired judge who robs the public coffers to the tune of NIS 86,000 per month for his pension. There are currently 300 people from the legal system who star at the top of the pyramid of those who have dug their hands deeply into the public’s pocket and live the good life as a result of what is essentially corruption.

I am tired of all these stories. I was elected to the Knesset by the public, the sovereign. No bureaucrat or police officer will intimidate me. I will take my ethical credit and the public trust that I enjoy as deputy speaker of the Knesset to Shimon Gabso’s home to declare the following: The people – not self-appointed bureaucrats – are the sovereign. Harass organized crime, drug dealers and those guilty of extortion. That is what you are being paid for.

Remember that you are public servants – not the public’s lords.

    I have followed Moshe Feiglin and Manhigut Yehudit's webpages for a dozen or more years and have found his comments incisive and a breath of fresh air, However on this, the whole notion of total democracy and that nothing is higher than the 'sovereign' will of the people, he is surely wrong. There is a higher law and governors govern 'under G-d' and are answerable to him. There needs to be mechanism that ensures that rulers are accountable and are held to account to his law. The current behaviour of the Mayor of Toronto shows the need for that and the apparent inability to rein him in shows that very clearly.

Israel’s Temple Mount policy prefers to blames the Jews-not the attackers-for the crisis.

If Hamas is ISIS, the world asks, why didn’t Israel destroy it given justification and opportunity?
