But not necessarily you?

Of course not necessarily me. I am not the message; the message is the message. I’m looking right and left and don’t see anybody else, but it’s not about me.

President Obama is visiting Israel in March. What would you advise Prime Minister Netanyahu to say to him during his visit?

Netanyahu should demand that Obama come with Jonathan Pollard before anything else. That should become the number one issue when it comes to the relationship with America. If, God forbid, Jonathan Pollard dies in jail, this black moral cloud above Israeli and American society will not be able to be erased.

Why is securing Pollard’s release more important than anything else?

Because I see [neglecting Pollard] as treason against our fellow brother who gave his life for us, and I believe that morality changes history. The bottom line is that when something immoral happens for such a long time in such a terrible way, it has an impact on the moral foundation of the Jewish state. It also has an impact on the moral foundation of the United States, but that’s a different story. I care about the Jewish state first of all.

  1. Rob Muchnick says:

    Israel needs Moshe Feiglin to be Prime Minister. Without him, or someone else with his values, Israel is fading away.

  2. Yehuda Cohen says:

    For years I supported Moshe Feiglin and was hoping that he would get into the government for I also thought that we need more religious people in government positions. My respect grew for him when he went to the Temple Mount; however, later on my support for him went out the window as soon as he walked into a gay bar for the purpose of winning more votes. For someone to walk from the Temple Mount to a gay bar has shattered my trust in him.

  3. Tim Upham says:

    He has got a very sick Messianic vision. Go in and bankrupt Israel to come up with U.S.$500,000 a piece for each Palestinian family to voluntarily leave the West Bank. Which would take all of Israel's GDP for four years to come up with. Besides how many would accept. I can tell you one thing, he is not my Messiah. But he is obviously Meir Kahane's.

  4. Gil Gilman says:

    Moshe Feiglin for all his potential faults, makes numerous points that are difficult to totally deny. This $500,000 idea is nothing new, going all the back to the mid 90s. This is a shake things up proclamation, not an end all. Personally, I think they would settle for $100,000 each, but who is counting? And where would they go? No one wants them. Isn't the heart of every Jew Jerusalem? Or is it Seattle, Cincinnati or NYC? And if Jerusalem is the heart of every Jew why without the Beit HaMikdash? It may as well be Tel Aviv then. For me it is difficult to disagree with Feiglin's statement, "I’m talking about Torah u’mitzvot with a national purpose. Not just a private purpose or a family purpose, not even a community purpose – but a national purpose." It is the realization of this dream that is difficult, not the dream itself.
