MK Moshe Feiglin: Who is the Rightful Owner of this Land?

Former Chief of IDF Intelligence and current head of Israel’s National Security Research Institute, Amos Yadlin, proposes compensation for Jews who will leave their homes in Judea and Samaria. “Like Yadlin, a Labor party Knesset candidate, I also propose compensation for those who would leave their homes in Judea and Samaria – the Arabs!” said MK Moshe Feiglin. “My proposal is not new; it is exactly what Zionism did in its days of glory.”

According to Feiglin, he and Yadlin see the solution in the same light. “The distinction between us is in a completely different place: Who is the rightful owner of this Land and who is the guest?” Feiglin explained. “This distinction does not stop at the 1967 border. An Israeli who feels that he is a guest in Judea and Samaria will ultimately feel the same about Tel Aviv. Since the Oslo Accords, we have raised a generation in Israel that feels like a guest in its own Land. Sadly, the people at the forefront of this mentality today are, like Yadlin, the heads of Israel’s security apparatus,” Feiglin concluded.
