It's the same in any lingo

בַּת-בָּבֶל, הַשְּׁדוּדָה: אַשְׁרֵי שֶׁיְשַׁלֶּם-לָךְ-- אֶת-גְּמוּלֵךְ, שֶׁגָּמַלְתּ לָנוּ
אַשְׁרֵי שֶׁיֹּאחֵז וְנִפֵּץ אֶת-עֹלָלַיִךְ-- אֶל-הַסָּלַע

How can one be compelled to accept slavery? I simply refuse to do the master's bidding. He may torture me, break my bones to atoms and even kill me. He will then have my dead body, not my obedience. Ultimately, therefore, it is I who am the victor and not he, for he has failed in getting me to do what he wanted done. ~ Mahatma Gandhi
If I am not for myself, who will be for me? If I am not for others, what am I? If not now, when? ~ Rav Hillel, Pirke Avot

The Likud Rebellion Grows

In the face of the apparent caving in of the current Likud Party leader, as he prepares to lay the groundwork for the sacrificing of Yehuda and Shomron, Likud MKs who are loyal to the Likud's platform, and the desires of the Israeli people, are organizing themselves, and making their disatisfaction quite known. It is a multi-pronged approach that is gathering strength as the Likud elections draw closer.

In the Knesset, Tzipi Hotovely held a conference at the Knesset for Yesha community leaders to protest the Bibi's rumored acceptance of a settlement freeze (there has been a de facto freeze on new construction since Bibi took office, in contradiction to the Likud Party platform).

Likud MK Ophir Akunis warned that attempting to topple the government would be dangerous and that Likud should back Bibi, though he said he would be against any agreement that stopped "natural growth" in established Yesha communities. It is interesting to note that Akunis is #20 on the Likud party list, a spot that was once held by Moshe Feiglin, before Bibi used the courts to push him down low enough that he did not get a seat in the Knesset. Looks like there's a little quid pro quo here from Mr. Akunis.

Hotovely has vowed to continue the protests (have I told you lately that I love her?), and told Israel Radio that three ministers have joined her campaign against the freeze. I would assume that these MKs are Danny Danon, Yariv Levin, and Ayoub Kara, as they are engaged in a campaign encouraging members of the nationalist public to register with the Likud and support MKs loyal to the party's mission to continue construction in Yesha, and reject the creation of a Falacstinian state west of the Jordan River. I am also assuming that this effort is coordinated with the Manhigut Yehudit, as the Likud faction has been engaged in a Likud registration campaign for a while now in the hopes that Moshe Feiglin will be elected party leader and move Israeli politics out of the hands of the Leftist Israeli Suicide Squad.

For my Israeli readers, if you desire to register with Likud you can find the registration form here.

The Machaneh HaLeumi, the nationalist camp, is in the process of building an English registration site.

Kol ha kavod. May the Schwartz be with you.

Seems like things are coming to some sort of confrontation. If Netanyahu does Oprahama's bidding, he is going to have a lot of pissed of constituents to deal with. I read a stat that said less than %10 of Israelis approve of the selected one. What sane politician goes against %90 of the electorate?

I'm not sure when the English site will be ready, but I'll keep checking and post the link.

Mawm, the latest polls actually have him down to 4%. I think he's polling behind a head of rotten cabbage, and swine flu.
