Why I Will Not Appeal Likud’s Decision

In response to the action of the Likud Elections committee that bumped me from the 20th to the 36th spot on the Likud Knesset list, I have received numerous phone calls from attorneys urging me to appeal to the Israeli Supreme Court. They assure me that the committee does not have a legal leg to stand on, and that I will surely win the case. But I am not going to appeal to the court.


Please be aware that I have not thrown my victory into the waste bin. I have turned it into something much stronger and more significant. From a faith-based perspective, it might very well be that God has orchestrated that I would be #20 on the Likud list precisely to test my convictions, and assure that we triumph and lead this nation much sooner than we would have otherwise believed.


What has happened is much more than just a race for a Knesset seat. It’s bigger than me, than Benjamin (Bibi) Netanyahu and than the Likud. What is being determined here is not whether I will be in the Knesset or how many seats the Likud will get. What is being determined here is whether the State of Israel will return to the people of Israel or remain captive in the hands of the faceless tyrant who will continue to drive it to ruin. The court is the home turf of the invisible tyrant, and the playing ground of the media, financial and security elites who now control Israel.


This is all being accomplished with the rightist votes of the Jewish majority in the Likud. The elections create the illusion that there is actually a democracy here. But in reality, the faceless tyrant assures that the head of the Likud will do his bidding. That way everybody is happy. The Jewish majority wins the elections, but Israel remains in the hands of the destructive elites.


If I had not run for the leadership of the Likud in the past and if it would not be completely clear that I plan to do so in the future, Bibi would have no problem with me. But Bibi and the faceless tyrant know that I am not just another prospective MK in the Likud. They understand that I am creating alternative leadership from within the Likud – leadership that will unchain Israel from the leftist tyranny.


That is why Bibi does not want me in the Knesset. True, we helped create an excellent roster of rightist Likud candidates. But if there is no alternative leadership to Bibi in the Likud, all the rightists will not be able to overcome him – just as they could not overcome Ariel Sharon.


In that case, it would seem that I really should appeal the decision and assure myself a seat in the Knesset. But in reality, the opposite is true. I have already announced time and again that I have no faith in the current court system. If I would now enter the Knesset due to a court decision, I would not be standing up for my convictions. If the Supreme Court rejected my appeal, I would not be able to complain; after all, I was the one who appealed to the court. And if the Supreme Court ruled in my favor, I would not be able to work to replace it – because I would already have recognized the “justice” of the court. In order to lead the revolution to free Israel from the grasp of the faceless tyrant, I must be elected by the voters. I cannot lead the revolution if the chains of the tyranny are wound firmly around my neck.


We are at the beginning of a huge revolution. Bibi does not have the tools to deal with the challenges that face him. No matter how strong the government he establishes will seem to be, there will soon be another race for the leadership of the Likud. This race will come in the midst of a deep crisis. If we remain true to our ideology, the people will put their trust in us. Even now, I have merited unimaginable levels of public support. With God’s help, we are winning and will keep winning in a big way.


To accomplish this victory, I need your dedication, prayers and trust. Bibi is pushing me off the list to push the entire Jewish majority off the playing field. We are facing a great test. Will we abandon the Likud to Bibi and allow him to destroy our country, or will we join forces and conquer the Likud for the people of Israel – making it a Likud of building the land and saving the Jewish people?
