Moshe Feiglin Answers Call for Debate

Dear Friends,

Our good friend Jeremy Gimpel, challenged Moshe Feiglin to a debate (see email below).

I am proud to announce that Moshe has agreed to this debate, with two conditions:

Condition #1: The debate is to be between Moshe Feiglin and Naftali Bennett.

The reason is clear.

Moshe Feiglin is running for the head of Likud.

Jeremy Gimpel is running for the "Young Leadership" spot on the Bayit Yehudi Knesset list ? spot #5 - which is considered by most pollsters as an unrealistic Knesset spot.

Naftali Bennett, on the other hand, is running for the head of Bayit Yehudi.

Therefore, let the debate be between the two people running for the head of their respective parties.

Condition #2: The debate is to be in Hebrew.

While we respect the English speaking audience in Israel, an important debate such as this one cannot be limited only to English speakers.

Israelis across the country must hear this debate and be active participants.

Of course, the debate will be video-taped and once it is over, Moshe will personally finance the translation into English, Russian and French and post it all over the internet with the proper subtitles.

Since it is now summertime, with many people away, the recommended date for this debate should be in the beginning of September.

Kol Ha'Kavod to both Jeremy Gimpel and Ari Abramowitz for this idea.

This is a perfect example of why they were just honored by Moshe Feiglin with "The Young Leadership Award" at the recent Manhigut Yehudit USA dinner in June.

We welcome this initiative and look forward to having it become a reality.
