Manhigut Yehudit founder and member of the Likud Central Committee Moshe Feiglin spoke with Tamar Yonah and Eli Stutz about his Likud faction and the state of the Jewish nation Sunday on Israel National Radio.
ES: We are still reeling here from the terror attack Friday night and looking for things we can do about it. Do you have any suggestions for people here?
MF: Look, we have a Chief of Staff that has already said that the disengagement will be a tail-wind for terror. And that is what we see today. As long as we give the Arabs our land, terror will always increase. The only way to stop terror is to go back to our roots, to our justice – to annex the land, to make sure that they understand and that the entire world understands that we know that this is our land, that this is our country and that whoever is going to start with us will pay a tremendous price. But when we lose our own justice, we merely whet their appetite for more and more Jewish blood because we communicate to them that they are right - that justice lies on their side.
TY: If you were the prime minister of Israel, what would be your solution to bring security and peace to Israel and to fulfill the destiny of the Jewish people here in our land.
MF: Well first we have to understand that peace and security are not the reason why we came to this part of the Middle East – to the Land of Israel. We would have much greater peace and security in Australia, New Jersey or New Zealand. We are here to serve one purpose only: to be complete Jews. The State of Israel is a tool to serve that purpose – to enable the Jews to fulfill their mission on Earth. When we do that we will have peace and security. But if we think we came here just to run away from the gas chambers – and that is why when anyone comes to Israel we first bring him to [Holocaust museum] Yad VaShem, to show him why we are here – then we are mistaken. We are not here because we are running from the gas chambers, we are here for a positive reason. We are on a mission. Only when we understand that, will we be able to really protect ourselves. And that will be the point when we will have peace and security.
