Former MK Moshe Feiglin:Destroy Gaza, only then send the army in

Moshe Feiglin: “We are going to win because we are the people of the infinity. But we also have to save Am Yisrael from its own leaders.”

Former Knesset member Moshe Feiglin, spoke to Arutz Sheva-Israel National News on the October 7 terrorist attack in southern Israel, which left 1400 men, women, children, and babies murdered, and many thousands injured.

“We have to realize that the fact that 18 days have passed since then and we still have not revenged, in a biblical way, and have not caused all of our neighbors and all the antisemites all over the world … we have lost the basic right of every Jew on the globe to exist. And this is because we did not burn Gaza to ashes immediately, immediately! And even worse than that. We have invited the Americans to come. We didn’t do this in 1948, in 1956, in 1967 or in 1973. Thanks to Bibi we have created a Banana Republic here under the wings of America.”

Feiglin believes that “Israeli policy today has destroyed Israel. It has destroyed Israeli sovereignty. I don’t know what’s left from it. We have destroyed any kind of fear. I mean, every Muslim all over the world has got such a thrill from this beautiful scene that he saw on Simchat Torah. All our enemies now understand that it can be done, and they are just waiting to do it. The people of Israel, who are supposed to represent the good in the world, supposed to represent God, supposed to fight evil, cannot do it even in their homeland. When the entire world has seen that the Jews have not done their job to bring the light over the nations, the light of God over the nations, antisemitism rises all over the world, just as we see now. All the slogans of defeating the Hamas, these are just hot air coming out of politicians’ mouths. Today it’s Hamas and tomorrow they’re going to call themselves Jihad. And yesterday they called themselves PLO and today they call themselves the Palestinian Authority. There is no difference between this Arab Muslim and that Arab Muslim. They all have the same mentality.”

He was not surprised by this attack. “Everybody said that they’re very surprised to see how cruel they can be. I was not surprised at all. We have seen what ISIS can do. Do you think there’s a difference? This is their culture. We see them differently, with our Western eyes. Do you think that if you call them by a different name and give them money, that they’re going to start thinking like you? This is a religious war and the only way to win this war is by taking back the Promised Land that they took away from us. Nothing has changed. They don’t know any other language.”

He also claims that “we keep on telling ourselves stories to keep the Oslo mentality going and so that all the politicians and IDF generals who grew up on the Oslo concepts in the last 30 years can keep their positions. All they do is continue to lie to the Israeli public. We should be bringing back those leaders who are not slaves to the Oslo mentality, like Effi Eitam, Ofer Winter, Ofek Buchris. Bring them now and put them on top.”

Feiglin believes that our immediate goal must be to “destroy Gaza; above ground and the underground tunnels. Only then send the army in. Make sure that all the people of Gaza are running to Rafiah. Create a tremendous humanity crisis. Level the entire area, just as you did in Gush Katif and in Yamit. It seems like we know how to do it when we want to. And rebuild Gush Katif. That’s what needs to be done immediately. That’s the only answer. Anything less than that, and we’ll be defeated, and we’ll get the same things again and again; even in a worse way.”

He also claims that “the American hug is a bear hug. I respect the Americans. They should not be here. We should not take any assistance from them. I cannot even start to describe what a disaster we are bringing on ourselves, when the only reason why we haven’t reacted in the last 19 days is because of the Americans, which means that we are going to be defeated because we got help from the Americans, and being defeated in in a situation like that is to invite all our enemies to do it again and again, including the Egyptians. The Americans are not coming here because they love our beautiful Jewish eyes. They have their interests, and the minute their interests change, they will be long gone, and we will be stripped from the ability to protect ourselves.”

Despite this, Moshe Feiglin is positive about our future. “I know that we are going to win because we are the people of the infinity. I don’t think that God brought us here after 2,000 years as a macabre joke. No! We are going to win, and we have the strongest people, amazing people. I know we’re going to win, but it is our duty to look at reality and understand where the problem is and deal with it. We have to look at reality in the eyes to save Am Yisrael from its own leaders.

“For 30 years, my friends and I have been talking about the need for Jewish leadership, leadership for Israel. There has never been a point in Jewish history that we needed that more than now. So at least now start understanding that you cannot trust Bibi, and you cannot trust Sharon, and you cannot trust any leader, definitely not from the left, but also not from the right, who is not thinking through Emunah, through Jewish faith, and not jumping on the Americans to come save us.”

  1. Michael,

    Moshe Feiglin seems like Israel’s Lindsey Graham.

    I read though the article before my last post to you. I then got to thinking and went back to listen to the interview of Moshe Feiglin.. Now, I have not followed Mr. Feiglin nor do I know his positions. But me, thinks to compare him to our own dispectable L. Graham is an injustice.

    I will say, I see / hear that Mr. Feiglin is guarded in his comments and that if he was king for the rest of the year, he would exact some biblical justice on Hamas. I like his tone and passion. If he was in charge I might just have to go to Israel and be his Phinehas.

    He is correct and this is what I allude to in another post. This war has nothing to do with self-defense – it is now over 19 days and still Hamas has not paid – now it is revenge – going after the bully and beating the crap out of him so you can hope he will not attack you in the school yard. Well, the bully just gets a few of his buddy’s and comes back….. they always come back. A friend who saw combat in V.nam and racked up a small body count on his own, was in his Baptist church while discussing Isarel and THE Hamas / Palestine problem said, “Kill’em all and let God sort them out”.

    Israel as of today, has shown the world that they are not prepared to defend themselves in the moment and maybe in a few days or weeks if they get permission form the UN and other nations.

  2. Sebasstien,

    @Michael Two can play that game.

    Oh, yeah? Well, three can play too!!!!

    [1] At the same time, saith the LORD, will I be the God of all the families of Israel, and they shall be my people.
    [2] Thus saith the LORD, The people which were left of the sword found grace in the wilderness; even Israel, when I went to cause him to rest.
    [3] The LORD hath appeared of old unto me, saying, Yea, I have loved thee with an everlasting love: therefore with lovingkindness have I drawn thee.
    [4] Again I will build thee, and thou shalt be built, O virgin of Israel: thou shalt again be adorned with thy tabrets, and shalt go forth in the dances of them that make merry.
    [5] Thou shalt yet plant vines upon the mountains of Samaria: the planters shall plant, and shall eat them as common things.
    [6] For there shall be a day, that the watchmen upon the mount Ephraim shall cry, Arise ye, and let us go up to Zion unto the LORD our God.

    Get that? EVERLASTING! Take that!

    PS Raphael Pss 121 is my favorite 🙂

  3. Tehillim 121

    A song of ascents.

    1 I lift up my eyes to the mountains—
    where does my help come from?
    2 My help comes from the Lord,
    the Maker of heaven and earth.

    3 He will not let your foot slip—
    he who watches over you will not slumber;
    4 indeed, he who watches over Israel
    will neither slumber nor sleep.

    5 The Lord watches over you—
    the Lord is your shade at your right hand;
    6 the sun will not harm you by day,
    nor the moon by night.

    7 The Lord will keep you from all harm—
    he will watch over your life;
    8 the Lord will watch over your coming and going
    both now and forevermore.

  4. Kol hakavod! Well done. Israel was part of God’s covenant with the Jews, and so God must be invoked to maintain it, as in the Deuteronomy passage quoted above. I agree that Israel must rely more on herself and less on the US. I just wish you had put more stress on reliance on God.
    Also, I don’t see how destroying Hamas does not also mean eradicating most Gazans, since they support it. This is unfortunate, but I believe it is a necessity. Again, think Deuteronomy. When enough people have absorbed this difficult reality in the age of moral relativism, then we will know freedom, in Israel and the rest of the world.

  5. IDF Spokesman Rear Adm. Daniel Hagari noting that the underground tunnels system is currently included in the infrastructure being targeted by the IDF.

  6. @Michael Two can play that game.

    16 However, in the cities of the nations the Lord your God is giving you as an inheritance, do not leave alive anything that breathes. 17 Completely destroy[a] them—the Hittites, Amorites, Canaanites, Perizzites, Hivites and Jebusites—as the Lord your God has commanded you. 18 Otherwise, they will teach you to follow all the detestable things they do in worshiping their gods, and you will sin against the Lord your God.

  7. Dear Moshe Feiglin,

    Now that the Israeli government has utterly failed the Jewish people, it is time to re-open the Zehut Party. It is time for true Jewish leaders to take the reigns of Israel’s government. This government is going down, there is no doubt about that, and their needs to be a real leader to step in and give the people what they need. There is not one person like that in the current Knesset. Gather the true leaders of the Jewish people and bring them together under the umbrella of the Zehut party and give the people an alternative to the useless recycled politicians they elect over and over again.

  8. Moshe Feiglin seems like Israel’s Lindsey Graham.

    Somebody once said that impatience is not a sound basis for strategy. The book of Proverbs says,

    [1] The king’s heart is in the hand of the LORD, as the rivers of water: he turneth it whithersoever he will.

    God says,

    [1] O LORD God, to whom vengeance belongeth; O God, to whom vengeance belongeth, shew thyself.
    [2] Lift up thyself, thou judge of the earth: render a reward to the proud.
    [3] LORD, how long shall the wicked, how long shall the wicked triumph?
    [4] How long shall they utter and speak hard things? and all the workers of iniquity boast themselves?
    [5] They break in pieces thy people, O LORD, and afflict thine heritage.
    [6] They slay the widow and the stranger, and murder the fatherless.
    [7] Yet they say, The LORD shall not see, neither shall the God of Jacob regard it.
    [8] Understand, ye brutish among the people: and ye fools, when will ye be wise?
    [9] He that planted the ear, shall he not hear? he that formed the eye, shall he not see?
    [10] He that chastiseth the heathen, shall not he correct? he that teacheth man knowledge, shall not he know?
    [11] The LORD knoweth the thoughts of man, that they are vanity.
    [12] Blessed is the man whom thou chastenest, O LORD, and teachest him out of thy law;
    [13] That thou mayest give him rest from the days of adversity, until the pit be digged for the wicked.
    [14] For the LORD will not cast off his people, neither will he forsake his inheritance.
    [15] But judgment shall return unto righteousness: and all the upright in heart shall follow it.
    [16] Who will rise up for me against the evildoers? or who will stand up for me against the workers of iniquity?
    [17] Unless the LORD had been my help, my soul had almost dwelt in silence.
    [18] When I said, My foot slippeth; thy mercy, O LORD, held me up.
    [19] In the multitude of my thoughts within me thy comforts delight my soul.
    [20] Shall the throne of iniquity have fellowship with thee, which frameth mischief by a law?
    [21] They gather themselves together against the soul of the righteous, and condemn the innocent blood.
    [22] But the LORD is my defence; and my God is the rock of my refuge.
    [23] And he shall bring upon them their own iniquity, and shall cut them off in their own wickedness; yea, the LORD our God shall cut them off.


    Deut. 32
    [35] To me belongeth vengeance, and recompence; their foot shall slide in due time: for the day of their calamity is at hand, and the things that shall come upon them make haste.
    [36] For the LORD shall judge his people, and repent himself for his servants, when he seeth that their power is gone, and there is none shut up, or left.
    [37] And he shall say, Where are their gods, their rock in whom they trusted,
    [38] Which did eat the fat of their sacrifices, and drank the wine of their drink offerings? let them rise up and help you, and be your protection.
    [39] See now that I, even I, am he, and there is no god with me: I kill, and I make alive; I wound, and I heal: neither is there any that can deliver out of my hand.

    Either God loves Israel, or Israel has no hope. He is not afraid of Hamas, nor of Joe Biden. As the Bible also says,

    Nahum 1
    [7] The LORD is good, a strong hold in the day of trouble; and he knoweth them that trust in him.
