Netanyahu Rival Danon Elected Head of Likud Central Committee

By: JTA

Deputy Defense Minister Danny Danon, who has said the Likud Party and Israel’s governing coalition are opposed to a two-state solution, was elected chairman of the party’s Central Committee on Sunday.

The victory by Danon was a blow to party leader Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, but he pledged to work with Netanyahu for the good of the party.

He was elected by the party’s Central Committee, which makes decisions for the party and can change its constitution.

  1. Glad to hear it. I have been a supporter of Danon's and believe he is precisely what Israel needs in the face of today's tumultuous political environment both within and outside Israel. I also agree with Danon that the two state solution is a farce. For the Palestinians, there is only a one state solution Palestine and the complete destruction of Israel. It should be noted that Danon does want peace but only if Israel's security and rights are fully intact. Danon was also correct in his assessment that Obama is not an ally of Israel and Obama should take his hands off Jerusalem. In addition, Danon correctly believes Jerusalem is the eternal capital of the Jewish people. However, there is one thing I disagree with. Danon has been characterized as being a hard liner. No, what he is is a responsible political figure who wants the best for his country and his people and if that means telling it like it is, so be it. What do you think if Secretary of State Kerry came to Israel and proposed Israel return to the sixty seven borders and put a freeze in building within his own country. I can assure you, Kerry would never bring this issue up again. Danon is fully aware of what Israel is facing in terms of with Israel's Arab neighbors, the increase in anti Semitism, and the increase in popularity of Israel bashing. Only a strong, pro Israel, Zionist, will have the capacity to do the job. I hope Danon will decide to throw his hat in the race to be Prime Minister soon, Israel needs him.
