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

Bibi's Puppetry Failing

Looks like Bibi is getting a bit tangled in his own marionette strings lately. He illegally rammed a Jewish construction freeze down the nation's throat with a non-binding decision to execute a 10 month ban on building in Judea and Samaria with nothing more than a vote by the Security Cabinet. The matter should have gone before the entire cabinet in order to have any legitimacy. But with the aid of his Baal priest Ehud Barak who uses military muscle to enforce the freeze in the heartland of Eretz Yisrael at the expense of the safety of the Jews who live there, including Rav Meir Chai, a father of seven who was gunned down in cold blood by terrorists who gained access after a military checkpoint had been removed by the so-called Minister of Defense.

Enter Likud MK Danny Danon. Danon immediately began to organize resistance within Likud against the freeze, demanding that the Likud Central Committe debate the issue. Netanyahu attempted to derail the debate, but the Likud internal court has ruled that the debate will be held. It is scheduled for March 18th.

In an another attempted move to consolidate his power in the party, Bibi attempted to postpone Likud Central Committee elections from this year until 2012 in the hopes that he would have time to register dissatisfied Kadima voters. But the Tel Aviv District Court ruled that the elections will go forward now. The vote has been scheduled for April 28th/the 14th of Iyar. In light of this decision, Bibi has cancelled his proposed vote to postpone the elections, but could still appeal to the Supreme Court. I suspect that the meat head will do just that.

What's the big threat? It's Moshe Feiglin and Manhigut Yehudit that he fears. He is afraid that Feiglin's faction will gain more power in the Likud Central Committee, and bring Israel closer to the day when a Jew who actually follows Torah will sit in the Prime Minister's chair. I have been critical of Feiglin's strategy on this blog as I believe that Likud is a poisoned tree that must be cut down. This upcoming vote will be a real test as to whether his strategy is correct. Is Feiglin the man to lead the Jewish nation into a new life as the national home of the Jewish people instead of a wasteland of the erev rav and mamlachti worshippers of the state? Frankly, I couldn't say. What I do agree with is that Israel needs to be run by a government that cares about our people's relationship with the land and the G-d of Israel before its relationship with Europe and the Arabs, leadership that understands that as long as the United States kowtows to OPEC, and plays the lying game of Falacstinian state solutions, America is not a reliable friend.

Bibi used the courts to push Feiglin out of the Knesset, but the national will to embrace Jewish values and our connection to the land is not going away. If Manhigut Yehudit gains power as a result of the upcoming Central Committee elections Bibi will surely take a dump.
