Feiglin to return to 20th spot on Likud list?

This is not online yet - I just heard it on the radio.

The Tel Aviv District Court has ordered the Likud to restore MK Michael Ratzon to the position he earned on the Likud's election slate. Ratzon had been ranked 24th, a realistic position in this election. He had been pushed down to the 37th position along with Moshe Feiglin (pushed from 20th to 36th) and Ehud Yatom (pushed from 29th to 38th) by party leader Binyamin Netanyahu. The Likud is meeting now to decide whether to appeal. If the decision stands, Feiglin and Yatom - who had not appealed to the courts - ought to be able to demand that the Likud's internal court order their positions restored. Israel Radio reports that if they demand that their positions be restored, there is a "good chance" that they will be.

As the news reported, the court punched Bibi in the face. He deserved it.


Israel Radio just reported that Feiglin has officially asked the Likud to restore him to the 20th position.


The Likud has appealed to the Supreme Court.

of course the real question is if this makes any difference in how to cast ones vote.

The party is still headed by a megalomaniac who will sell us up the river, and considers democracy a means to his end.

BB"s still a weenie and the Likud is just Kadima "light".

He's just another typical arab appeaser having his shots dictated by the state department. His past PM track record reveals lack of backbone (please ask any Hebron resident for details). Even if Feiglin was in top five, BB will out rank and over rule his every move.

You're right about that Jo Jo. I'm confident the Oslo philosophy has reached a dead end in Israel. Jews are sick and tired of being the leftist elite's guinea pigs. They want a change of course not more of the same.

To Cabbage and Jo Jo, here are the 3 possible scenarios of what we'll realistic be left with after the election:

1. Kadima wins by a nose because half the world defected from the Likud.

2. Likud wins by a nose because half the world defected from the Likud.

3. Likud wins by a landslide because people realize that the only way to fix the Likud is from within and if the repairs don't start, we'll be in for the same game of centrist ping pong in the next election and the one after that and the one after that ad infinitum.

The Likud is NOT "Kadima Lite". Part of the Likud is, including Netanyahu. Many are against Netanyahu, both in the rank and file membership as well as the Central Commitee, just as they opposed.

There are a sufficient number of Likud candidates who will not tow Bibi's line. The more seats the Likud gets, the more such loyalists get in the Knesset and upset the order of Bibi's day.

But if you really prefer to vote for an opposition party that will sit on the outside and do nothing but shout and pout, cast your vote away.

No matter how many seats the Likud gets, it will still be bad. However, it is in our hands whether the situation will be bad or worse and whether we'll finally start reversing the course of Israel's political deviations for once and for all.

It's up to us.
