MK Moshe Feiglin, head of the Likud’s Manhigut Yehudit faction, confirmed in an exclusive interview with JewishPress.com Tuesday night that he has become a member of the Knesset Foreign Affairs and Defense Committee.

Feiglin is replacing President-elect Reuven Rivlin, who has left the committee to take his place as the leader of the nation in the presidential position.

Currently the Deputy Speaker of the Knesset, Feiglin has long advocated basing Israel’s government policy on the principles of freedom, Jewish identity and restoring meaning to Israeli life.

He advocates full Israeli sovereignty on the Temple Mount and has pushed for the government to abandon the Oslo Accords. Feiglin also supports permanent Israeli resident status for Arabs who live in Judea and Samaria but does not support citizenship for them. He opposes a two-state solution and supports annexation of Judea, Samaria and Gaza.

  2. Chabad Rabbi DEAD BY HAMAS
    The first fatality in this conflict by the Israeli side is Pain Chanin z’l 37, who was a member of Chabad in input Erez station delivering donated food to the soldiers and taking them moral support. A barrage of mortars fired from Gaza fell into place around 19hs (Jerusalem time). Pain Chanin succumbed to his injuries and is the first fatality reported at the Chabad site in the United States and not by official sources. Another man, 44, was injured in the attack. Is in stable condition. Erez is one of the crossing points between Israel and Gaza, where the trucks come with humanitarian aid, food and consumer goods.
