It’s a Question of Sanity Versus the Madness of Liberal Politics in Israel.

If you listened carefully, you would have heard a corporate sigh of relief by those of the political Right in Israel when it was announced last night that Otzma Yehudit and the Religious Zionist Party would run on a joint ticket come November 1’s election.

Predictably the usual suspects were outraged and contemptuous of the Rights political savvy in finally uniting for the kill. One of those to vent his spleen on Itamar Ben Gvir was ex-Likud minister Dan Meridor. Keen to show his liberal credentials; he mounted a verbal attack on the dangers of Itamar Ben Gvir joining the next government to be led by Binyamin Netanyahu. Suggesting his presence in the government would transform Israel into a different country.

Meridor was right in one thing Itamar Ben Gvir would change the country and, by so doing, set it on the path of redefining its Jewish roots and values that of recent times have been put under threat by the likes of Dan Meridor and the new age Leftists. They inhabit the political, educational and media circus that has come to dominate public debate in the Jewish State.

It is hoped a new dawn is rising over Israel that will sweep away the condescending rotten system of society imposed on the Jewish people of Israel in the early years of the re-emerging State.

Meridor speaks of Zionism as the most just national movement in the world while condemning Itamar Ben Gvir, a racist likening him to Rabbi Meir Kahane ztl.

These comments belong to the anti-Zionist camp and have no place in authentic Jewish thoughts, nor do they have a place in genuine Zionism.

Itamar Ben Gvir, on the other hand, offers every Jew the opportunity to stand upright on his own two feet with pride and dignity, no longer defensive, apologetic or half-hearted in his ownership over the Land of Israel.

This change is what we have been waiting for since 1948. With G-d’s help, the dream becomes a reality.

Let’s all unite together to bring that change!

Yosef Yigal Drever and Sylvia Drever co-founded Achdut HaLev in 2006 to reach out to the Jewish community's around the world providing support in learning Torah and promoting the 'Return of the Jewish people to the Land of Israel.' Yosef Yigal made Aliya in 2014 while Sylvia his wife is an Israeli. In late 2014 Achdut HaLev concentrated all its resources towards Aliya and the rebuilding of Eretz Yisrael. Excluding none and embracing all. The commandment to settle the Land of Israel is equal in importance to all the Torah Commandments all together: (Sifri Deut 12:29)
