MK Moshe Feiglin: If You Have to Shoot, Shoot. Don't Talk.
“Where are our previous prime ministers, Ben Gurion, Eshkol and Begin?” MK Moshe Feiglin asked on Tuesday. “None of them had a particularly high rank in the army. But when they were faced with a strategic threat they knew how to act – and not talk. Ben Gurion established the Israel Defense Forces and the State of Israel – despite the opposition and embargo of the US. Eshkol embarked on the Six Day War and conquered the Sinai, the Golan Heights, Jerusalem, Judea, Samaria and Gaza – again, despite the opposition and embargo of the US. Begin destroyed the Iraqi nuclear reactor despite (surprise, surprise) the opposition of the US.
Where are all those ex-prime ministers, who didn’t make speeches in the Congress?” Feiglin concluded.
