Moshe Feiglin at Knesset Reception for Gov. Huckabee: Israel Doesn’t Need US Financial Support
At a Tuesday Knesset reception for Governor Mike Huckabee, Deputy Defense Minister Danny Danon called for America to stop funding the Hamas. “Why should the US stop funding the Hamas,” MK Moshe Feiglin asked, “when every month, Israel sends truckloads of cash into Gaza to help fund the Hamas?”
“We have something in common, you and I, ” Feiglin continued. “I listen to your speeches, and every time, I hear you saying something that I hear myself saying all the time. You say, ‘I believe in G-d.” Without that, the delegitimization of Israel will continue,” said Feiglin, arguing that the belief in G-d who gave Israel to the Jewish people is the true legitimization of Israel.
“If we run away from our identity, we open the gate to delegitimization. What do you want from the Arabs and the Americans? If we ourselves came and said in the Oslo agreement that the heart of the Land belongs to a different group, and they’re not even a nation…once we did that we lost our strongest weapon – justice,” stated Feiglin.
Feiglin added “Israel doesn’t need the financial and military support (of the US), Israel needs America and America needs Israel to herald the message of freedom. We share the same values.”
