This is how it works: A minister or MK who steps out of line – opposing the destruction of the Ulpana neighborhood, for example – is immediately accused of “Feiglinism.” It makes no difference if the accuser is Tzipi Livni or Ehud Barak. “This is simply terrible,” Kadima MK Nachman Shai explained on the afternoon news. “Feiglin determines the fate of the Likud MKs.”
On Saturday, Defense Minister Ehud Barak mocked two Likud ministers who criticized his plan to demolish Ulpana Hill, saying they caught "a severe case of ‘Feiglinism.’” Then, one after another, Likud MKs paid homage to the new term and congratulated Moshe Feiglin on his tenacity in upholding the principles of Feiglinism.
Responding to criticism from two government ministers who object to the demolition of Ulpana Hill homes, Defense Minister Ehud Barak mocked his detractors, accusing them of contracting the Feiglin germ. But whether or not Prime Minister Netanyahu accepts the turning of his rival's name into an adjective, he has been looking for ways to avoid the May 1 eviction.
