Moshe Feiglin: To Silence Zuabis of the World, Israel Must Declare Sovereignty in Judea and Samaria
By saying that the kidnappers of the three Israeli boys are not terrorists, Arab MK Hanin Zuabi managed to unite the entire Israeli political spectrum against her. But the disgust with her is emotional, without much of a logical foundation. We are angry at Zuabi because in these difficult moments of solidarity – a time when we are all united behind our sons , whether they are putting their lives in danger for us all on the Marmara or were simply kidnapped from their parents – precisely at these intense national moments, this evil woman comes and adds insult to injury. We are furious, justifiably so.
But we must remember two things.
- The guilty party is not Zuabi, but the justice system that nullified the decision of the elected representatives of the public and made it possible for her to get re-elected to the Knesset. As long as we continue to make the sovereignty of the people subservient to the High Court, as long as we continue to be ruled by the ‘courtocracy’ instead of democracy, the Zuabis will continue to have a field day.
- This is the main point: As long as we do not end the ‘occupation’ and declare complete sovereignty in our Land, as long as we continue to declare that we are occupiers in our own Land – the Zuabis will continue to claim that they are ‘freedom fighters’. And we will continue to wail.
