PERFIDY; Who Wants to be a Strategic Threat?; Aharon Barak joins the Plaintiff's Bar

By Moshe Feiglin

There is no choice. We must return the State of Israel to the Jewish People -- before it is too late.

Last week, Israel's daily newspaper "Yediot Acharonot" reported that Deputy Defense Minister, Ephraim Sneh, served as an advisor to the Baker-Hamilton Iraq Study Group appointed by President Bush. Sneh verified his involvement and expressed satisfaction with the Study's results. The Study Group essentially recommended buying quiet for the Americans in exchange for Israel's existential assets.

The implications of the Report are that Israel will be forced to destroy its settlements in the Golan Heights and to surrender the Heights to Syria -- all the way to the banks of the Sea of Galilee. In addition, Israel will have to agree in principle to "The Right of Return" for the Arabs who lived in Israel until 1948 and negotiate the details with the terror organizations. Clearly, the Right of Return is contingent on full acceptance of the Convergence Plan. In other words, Israel will destroy Jewish settlements in Judea and Samaria and relinquish the entire region to the terrorists -- a direct continuation of the ethnic cleansing that Israel perpetrated against the Jews of Gush Katif and Northern Samaria.

America never distinguished between the areas that Israel officially annexed after the Six Day War, and those settlements that were never officially annexed. Whoever thinks that the fact that Israel has declared sovereignty on Jerusalem's post Six Day War neighborhoods improves their international standing is mistaken. Israel has also annexed the Golan Heights. That does not seem to impress anybody: Not the Arabs, not the Americans and most importantly, not Israel's leadership. In short, this is the partial significance of the proposal that Deputy Defense Minister Ephraim Sneh helped to compile.

In an article on the precise cost of the Disengagement, economist Nachum Tavyumi estimated that the cost of expelling the Jews of Judea and Samaria from their homes -- if the compensation scale of Gush Katif were to be applied -- would be more than one and a half trillion shekels. (The exact figure is 1,650,447,000,000 shekels). This sum is three times Israel's entire GNP. Obviously, Israel is totally incapable of paying it. The US did not pay a cent for the expulsion of the Jews of Gush Katif and will certainly not pay such a fantastic sum, or even part of it.

The conclusion is simple. The Convergence Plan and the Baker Report that complements it mean the expulsion of all the Jews of Judea and Samaria and turning them into refugees with no compensation or housing/employment solutions. The International Court in The Hague has already ruled that a person who settles in occupied territory is a war criminal. Since, for all practical purposes, Israel has accepted the claim that the territory is occupied, the refugees will all be designated as war criminals who deserve no compensation.

The half million refugees from Judea, Samaria, Gush Katif and the Golan Heights who will converge into the borders of pre-1967 Israel will have to share the space with a torrent of Arab refugees from 1948: "Palestinians," their descendants, their children's children and other Moslems will all join the free-for-all. Clearly, this process means the quick destruction of the State of Israel without even one shot being fired. Even today, Israel plods along without even the most basic survival instinct that is a prerequisite for any national organism. Even today, a great majority of Israelis no longer believe that Israel will exist in the not too distant future. But it seems that most Israelis do not quite understand the personal price that they will be paying for the holocaust that traitorous leaders like Ephraim Sneh are bringing upon them.

As expected, Israel's media has warmly adopted the Baker plan. "Implementation of the report will be good for the US, but it will also be good for Israel..." gushed Orli Azulai, the Yediot Acharonot reporter in Washington. In a rerun of its approach toward the Oslo Process, the flight from Lebanon, the Disengagement and the Convergence Plan, Israel's media hurriedly rejoices at the prospect of destroying the settlements in Yesha -- even if our past experience and a simple analysis of the present clearly show that the entire State of Israel will be swept away along with the settlements.

Denial of our Jewish identity and hatred of the settlers and Biblical Israel are more powerful factors in Israel's media than the most basic survival instinct.

Ephraim Sneh, though, has reached new depths of perfidy. Sneh is not just another Left winger who suffers from periodic hallucinations. He is the Deputy Defense Minister of the State of Israel, a calculated and thinking man. He understands the clear significance of the Baker Report for Israel. But even if we assume that Sneh doesn't quite grasp that the Report will lead his country to a holocaust, G-d forbid, even if he believes that the Right of Return will be a great boon for Israel -- Israel's government still defines the idea as unacceptable. If so, we can simply say that the Deputy Defense Minister of the State of Israel was traitorous to his country when, by his own admission, he helped a foreign country to design a policy that will lead to the destruction of the State.

The problem is that Sneh is not alone. Perfidy pervades current Israeli culture and rears its ugly head in both private and State affairs. It is accepted and rationalized by Israel's ruling minority. But it is destroying us.

It is urgent to replace the culture of perfidy with a culture of loyalty: Loyalty to our spouses, to our family, to our Jewish heritage, our Jewish identity, our Land, our fellow Jews and our G-d. This is nothing short of a revolution. Manhigut Yehudit has provided the key with which to create the revolution. Now it is in your hands.

Who Wants to be a Strategic Threat?
The following article appeared in Israel's Ha'aretz newspaper this week.

A Strategic Threat

It's going to be one of the hot political stories of 2007...

It's the Feiglinites. Over the last years, approximately 11,000 extreme Rightists have become members of the Likud. Since then, they have been Likud party members, eligible to vote. They devotedly pay their annual membership fees. They can be counted on to pay, while the number of other Likud members has steadily decreased. Today, there are one hundred thousand Likud members. Every month, another few hundred stop paying their membership fees. Not the Feiglinites. If today they make up 11% of the Likud members eligible to vote, when the primaries will be held their relative strength is liable to increase to 15%. (The number of new members will not grow, as has previously been the case, before the primaries. The Likud constitution requires a minimum 16 month membership before one is eligible to vote).

In effect, they have even more power for a simple reason: The general voting rate for Likud primaries is approximately 50%-60%. But their voter turnout is between 90% and 100%. Their ability to influence the Likud's Knesset list will be significant. It will force the Likud's candidates to present extreme Rightist positions so that they can get onto the list. It will be the great opportunity of the Likud rebels, who will return to the Likud with more support than ever."

You have two choices. You can sink into despair or you can be a "strategic threat."

The belief based public must understand what the radical Left has already grasped. If we unite and aspire to lead, we become a "strategic threat" to the forces of destruction that are bringing a holocaust upon us.

Chanukah is an excellent time to drive away the darkness. It is an excellent time for a true strategic turnabout. We need you at the Manhigut Yehudit Chanukah Conference, this Tuesday at the Renaissance Hotel in Jerusalem. Come and be part of the "strategic threat" to Israel's current oppressive leadership. Come and help us return the State of Israel to the Jewish People.

Look Who's Watching
Manhigut Yehudit's Chanukah Conference has stirred up a lot of media attention. This week, a television crew from Israel's channel 2 showed up at the home of Elchanan Engelsman to cover Moshe Feiglin's lecture there. With its sharp sense for a scoop, Israel's media has identified the "hot political story of 2007…"

There are many fine and talented people working in many important ways to save Israel. But only Manhigut Yehudit provides a strategic solution that deals with the entire problem with a clear and orderly plan of action.

Manhigut Yehudit's Chanukah Conference is the opportunity for the belief based public to join forces, consolidate our energies and breath fighting spirit into our team as we enter Israel's leadership arena. Every participant in the Conference adds to the belief based public's power as we face the challenges of the future.

How can you be part of the strategic plan? Come to the Conference. Show the watching media that Manhigut Yehudit is a thriving movement that is constantly gaining momentum. Bring your friends, neighbors and families. There's a lot more that you can do. But the Conference is crucial. Israel needs authentic Jewish leadership before it's too late. This is your opportunity to make a true impact on Israel's future. The People of Israel are counting on the belief based public. We cannot afford to let them down.

Join us at the Manhigut Yehudit Chanukah Conference, Tuesday, the 28th of Kislev (Dec 19), the fifth night of Chanukah, at the Renaissance Hotel in Jerusalem at 7 p.m.
Your presence at the conference empowers us to establish belief based leadership for Israel.

Look for the English speakers registration desk
at the entrance of the Conference Hall.
We'll be there to greet you and
introduce you to other Manhigut English speakers.

If you have any questions or need more information please contact:
Dovid Shirel, Director, Manhigut Yehudit English Speakers

We're looking forward to seeing you!

Barak Joins The Plaintiff's Bar
s a farewell present before he steps down from his position as Chief Justice of the Supreme Court, Aharon Barak has handed down a decision that allows Palestinians to sue Israel for damages that they incurred in the course of Israel's counter-terror operations. This decision essentially allows "civilians" to provide cover for terrorists, with Israel footing the bill. The following is Manhigut Yehudit's reaction:

Compensation for Palestinians from Sale of Chief Justice's Apartments
Responding to the Supreme Court decision to compensate Arabs of Judea, Samaria and Gaza for damage incurred during counter-terror operations, Manhigut Yehudit Chairman Moshe Feiglin suggests selling the seventeen luxury apartments in which Former Chief Justice Aharon Barak has financial interests (presumably bought from his meager salary as a civil servant). Sale of the apartments will allow Barak to shoulder personal responsibility to fund his decision to aid the Palestinians he so admires.

Go Moshe!

Having Justice Barak sell his 17 civil-servant-salary-bought (yeah, right) apartments would be a good first step toward redeeming his hypocrisy. But they should be sold to Jews who actually believe in the land they live in, and in the G-d who gave it to them, for the price he would have got had he sold them to Arabs.

I have long believed that people who say they believe something ought to step out and be the first to do it. Therefore, politicians and the people behind them who want to sell out Eretz Yisrael to Arabs or anyone else (and let's face it, selling out Medinat Yisrael is the same thing, at this point), should not hypocritically turn to those who have no desire to do the selling out. Rather, those who truly support the Disengagement, Convergence, Disembowelment and other such movements should kick THEMSELVES out of their homes and land.

As all good Israeli leaders say: Acharai!

I don't think Verter has anything to worry about. We know in the past Manhigut Yehudit (MY)supported people like Olmert and others who supported the destruction of Gush Katif and many of whom are now in Kadima. The actual leadership of the Likud: Netanyahu, Mr Judy-Silvan Shalom, Livnat, etc, etc can go to MY people to get support in the primaries and then turn their backs on them to carry out the policies of the Left which the Likud now OFFICIALLY endorses.
After all, now that Kadima has dropped the unilateral withdrawal line for the time being, the policies of all the parties (including MAFDAL and even YESHA people like Benzi Lieberman) is withdrawal in return for...something (peace, temporary quiet, or whatever). Thus, MY by being part of the Likud is part of this system and this philosophy. People who are elected to the Knesset don't pay any attention
to their party members or their voters...just look at Olmert abandoning his pledge to unilaterally withdraw from YESHA, Liberman who gave up every one of his demands to joing the "restraint" gov't, Peretz who promised to focus on "social issues" and instead took the Defense Ministry.
Bottom line....Manhigut Yehudit will destroy itself if it remains in the Likud. What is needed is an education process, which Feigin and MY are ideally constituted to do, to get the population to refuse to be intimidated by the oligarchs (Supreme Court, State Prosecutors Office, Media, etc) which will then allow the politicians to REALLY carry out the
wishes of the people. MY's current philosophy of "top-down" change (Feiglin saying "make me PM and I will change everything) WILL NOT WORK!

To Bar_kochba132:

Very easy to criticize from the sidelines. Yes, MY has made mistakes, especially in the beginning when they were political novices. Don't forget, we've only been at this for 6 years. Don't forget, with a good part of the Likud trash having been taken out in Kadima and the neutering of the Likud Central Commitee, no more back-room dealing needs to be done. Remember this is about faith-based leadership and those who want to lead which describes NONE outside of MY. Our time will come. So instead of whining, how about helping?
