Outgoing Knesset Member Moshe Feiglin will announce his plans for his political future at a meeting with supporters Monday night, he wrote on his Facebook page Friday morning.

“I am honored to invite you to a meeting of supporters to explain how we will continue. The meeting will be held at 7 p.m. Monday in Jerusalem at a place to be announced later,” Feiglin wrote.

Likud party primary elections voters Wednesday night dumped Feiglin to an unrealistic spot on the party’s list of candidates, much to the delight of Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu and the Jewish Home party.

The Prime Minister did not like Feiglin’s clear-spoken views that give the Likud an image of being “too” right wing. The Jewish Home party is likely to pick up at least one if not more seats in the Knesset from voters who would not vote Likud unless Feiglin had a good chance of being elected.

Another factor in the Jewish Home party’s favor is that Likud voters also dropped popular right-winger Tzipi Hotovely from the list of realistic candidate, further distancing strong nationalists from voting for the Likud party.

  1. A definitely right wing new govt. would deflate european,lefttards and arabs' ridiculous claims,force netanyahou claim sovereignty over Western Palestine and soon end this never ending conflict for the best interests of everyone even if a very small war comes about. Such a small war would avert a much bigger one.

  2. I know Feiglin has a group of people who like but what the Likud democratic election showed at least in the Likud he is only thought of highly enough to vote for him by a small amount of people. Him joining Bayit Yehudi does not do much for them.

  3. More evidence that the Likud is a corrupt morally bankrupt institution that has not only betrayed every one of its purported principles, but has also ousted the only truly decent man among them. And flawed as Hotovely's ideology is, she is also a more principled person than the remaining losers in Likud. Netanyahu showed his true face again. Likud is strong because it stands for nothing, and the masses are satisfied with the bluff and bluster that masks the ineptitude of their leaders.
