Smotrich Guilty of What???
United Torah Judaism chairman MK Moshe Gafni told Kol Barama radio on Sunday evening that he held Bezalel Smotrich head of the Religious Zionist party responsible for Netanyahu’s failure to form a right-wing government.
Gafni’s anger leaves me mystified and somewhat bemused. What is the Religious Zionist leader actually guilty of?
Yes, he is, without doubt, guilty of keeping his political pledge to not enter a coalition with those who promote the destruction of the Jewish State while others betray their principles and undermine the Zionist dream.
He is also guilty for advocating authentic Jewish values while those from other party’s seek accommodation with those who advocate the very destruction of these values in order to ensure their political and ideological hegemony while at the same time criticize Smotrich and Co in the name of morality, democracy and yes Jewish values!
The question should be who are the real betrayers of a true rightwing government?
The answer is those who would legitimize the Arab franchise in the Knesset by inviting the enemy within. Are they mad or just blind to the cold hard facts of the last 100 years of Arab Jewish relations?
You can answer that for your selves dear reader. In the meantime, Jewish leadership should not fear doing that which is both true and rational. These genuine Jewish leaders will then continue to look at the haters of Zion who thirst for its destruction and understand what they have to do.
“Who really are the guilty party?”
