Exposing the Faceless
By Moshe Feiglin
20 Kislev, 5769 (Dec.
There could be a situation in which I would say: It is not worth it to keep
this society intact.
In that case, a civil war would not perturb me.
Judicial commentator and media personality Moshe
These frightening words spoken from the mouth of the man
who is the judicial commentator at Israel Radio, the radical leftist Moshe
Negbi - are a classic example of how the faceless leftist elites that I have
been warning about have taken over the State of Israel and its institutions.
Needless to say, Negbi's liberal opinions remain steadfast as long as he is
warning against transferring Arabs from Israel. But despite his liberal
protestations, Negbi and his ilk are the chief proponents of expulsion and
transfer - as long as those being expelled are Jews. Those Jews who dared
consider passive civil disobedience - a far cry from the civil war that
Negbi had proposed - are at the receiving end of Negbi's hypocritical poison
In his radio show on Israel Radio, Negbi literally begged his listeners to
appeal to the Supreme Court to disqualify my candidacy for the Likud Knesset
list. The on-the-air tribunal that wholeheartedly agreed with Negbi's
accusations unabashedly shares his radical views. These professors and
pundits are the loyal representatives of the faceless dictator that pushes
Israel inexorably toward her end. The democratic decisions of the Jewish
majority in Israel do not interest them in the least.
Throughout my entire primaries campaign, I explained that the State of
Israel is being controlled by a faceless tyrant - a leftist, secular, smug
dictatorship that uses the Likud to expedite its agenda. The Jewish majority
votes Likud and the faceless tyranny knows how to capture the head of the
Likud in its tentacles and use him to lead the Likud and the entire state as
dictated by the Left.
My remarks aroused quite a storm. The storm became even more violent when I
expressed my complete lack of faith in Israel's legal mechanism - the state
prosecution and the Supreme Court, which are the mainstay of the faceless
tyrant - and announced that I would not appeal to the courts to restore me
to the slot to which I had been elected by the Likud voters. Wherever I was
allowed to explain myself, the public response was broad based support for
my move and motivation. I have logged many years of public speaking and
explaining - but nothing prepared me for the rapid and open way in which my
views have been accepted. It seems that this is a special time and that our
Father in Heaven is opening the hearts of His children to hear words of
The tyrant whose face I have begun to expose feels threatened and has begun
to take his tried and true weapons out from storage. Clearly, the tyrant's
representatives cannot deal with my claims in any objective or intelligent
forum. Honest debate on equal footing is not their forte.
"There is a new clause," Negbi pleaded with his listeners. "If applied, it
makes it easy to fish a candidate out of a party and to disqualify him. All
that needs to be done is to prove that the candidate does not accept the
State of Israel as a Jewish and democratic state or that he incites racism."
At that point, Negbi used a number of distorted and selective quotes from
interviews that I had given fourteen years ago, when I founded the Zo
Artzeinu movement - the movement that was established in an effort to
prevent the murders of over one thousand Israelis as a result of the Oslo
Accords, which Negbi and his cohorts so enthusiastically promoted.
I was young then, and naïve. I actually believed that the Ha'aretz
newspaper, that prides itself on being the 'newspaper for thinking people,'
would accurately quote my answers to their questions. The reporter, Ada
Ushpiz asked me how I could struggle against an agreement that was
democratically ratified. I answered that the fact that a decision is
affirmed democratically, does not guarantee that it is moral. As proof, I
cited the Nazi party in Germany, which ascended to power in a democratic
manner. I continued to explain to the representative of the 'thinking
people' that at the beginning, it seemed that the Nazi regime was actually a
success. It rehabilitated the German economy, the trains ran on time and
people throughout the world were captivated by the charms of Nazism. Nazi
parties sprang up in England and America. We all know the end of the story.
From the above, Ms. Ushpiz somehow concluded that Feiglin admires Hitler.
From then and until this very day, the Left, that cannot counter my claims
on a logical basis - demonizes and dehumanizes me with its tried and true
weapon; Feiglin is a Nazi.
Strangely, the Left also attacks me from the opposite end of the spectrum.
They call me a fascist, but simultaneously attack me for supporting
conscientious objection. Fascism is the belief that the state is above all
else. But I claim that G-d or one's conscience is above the state. How can
the Left attack me for both fascism and for supporting conscientious
objection at one and the same time?
The Left is sure that the state is its own personal plaything - an
inheritance from Israel's founding leftists. But now, it feels that somebody
is pulling the toy out of its hands. "The Supreme Court is my home,"
explained Justice Mishael Cheshin. "Whoever raises his hand against my home,
I will cut it off."
Negbi and his cohorts are busily working on creative ways to cut off my
hand. But it won't help them. The State of Israel will return to the Jewish
majority. It will be governed by Jewish values. It will survive and flourish
as a Jewish state - and as a result of its Jewish values - as a free and
democratic state. Despite the leftists.
