IsraelNN.com: MK Ben Ari: Likud List Is Nice, But Ineffective
'Elkin, Levin, Hotovely and Danon were in the Knesset when Netanyahu froze construction.'
|MK Michael Ben-Ari|
"The influence of these members is marginal, I am sorry to say, and it will continue to remain marginal. We see this already this morning, with Netanyahu saying that he wants to keep Dan Meridor and Benny Begin at his side." What does that tell you about the Likud's true direction?
Ben Ari did not mention the newly elected Moshe Feiglin in his statement.
Ben Ari also blasted Foreign Minister Avigdor Lieberman. "The man is an elections hound, and history proves that on the eve of elections he always makes right wing statements and is suddenly deep within the Right, but it is no secret that inside, at home, in critical government votes, Lieberman turns out to be an opportunist, and he was a partner to all of this government's failures."
Ben Ari noted the government's "surrender" in Gaza as a case in point. "Instead of entering Gaza, erasing the enemy and bringing Hamas down on its knees, the Netanyahu-Lieberman government delivered a disappointment, and not for the first time."
Ben Ari heads the newly formed Power to Israel faction together with MK Aryeh Eldad.
MK Ben-Ari is right on point.
However, he failed to mention Danny Danon's history of collaboration with Christian missionaries, nor his infamous, and completely unnecessary, apology to Turkey. He also neglected to mention the destruction of 10-year old neighborhood in Beth-El, the destruction of Migron, and the destruction of any number of other Jewish strongholds in Yehudah and Shomron (Judea and Samaria).
Nevertheless, it looks Ben-Ari and Eldad's "Power To Israel" Party will be getting my vote, come this 11 Shvat (January 22, 2013).
