Yossi Sarid Connects Feiglin with Hitler
(IsraelNN.com) Former Meretz MK Yossi Sarid has charged that Likud Knesset candidate Moshe Feiglin is a fascist and based his charges on a 13-year-old interview in which Feiglin stated that Hitler was “an unparalleled military genius.’ Feiglin also said in the same interview with the Haaretz newspaper, “Nazism promoted Germany from a low to a fantastic physical and ideological status.”
The same newspaper this week published an article by Sarid, who implicitly compared Nazism with the new Likud Knesset candidate list, which includes Feiglin and other strong nationalists. “The list’s color is as brown now as that brown house [Peace House] in Hevron,” Sarid charged. “Feiglin and his cronies…are not ‘radicals’ but fascists by any acceptable definition….They also [are] the bearers of severe personal disturbances, which hide behind a layer of patriotic make-up, under the camouflage of the Jewish faith.”
Feiglin is not just a ‘Likud Knesset candidate’ for the coming elections in Israel. Opinion polls expect the Rightist Likud to become the biggest party; which would mean that Feiglin would certainly become a member of parliament. And not just any MP: according to media reports, most Likud candidates are supporters of Feiglin rather than of official Likud leader Netanyahu. Netanyahu is more moderate than Feiglin; though I am afraid, “moderate” mainly limited to not publicly praising Adolf Hitler. It is horrible that in countries like Israel, Poland, and Russia, with so many people from families who suffered horribly from Hitler, some people now praise this biggest criminal of all time. And that people like that can become part of government coalitions, like happened in Poland. Or, maybe after the Knesset elections, become “kingmaker”, the most powerful person within the biggest political party, probaby the core of the new government.

From the BBC:
Livni sparks Arab ‘transfer’ row
Ms Livni‘s comments echo the position of some of Israel’s most hard line figures
Israeli Foreign Minister Tzipi Livni has sparked controversy by saying a Palestinian state would provide “a national solution” for Israel‘s Arabs.
Politicians from the minority Arab community have demanded she clarify if it means that Arabs citizens will face loss of rights in Israel or expulsion.
Israeli politicians have long grappled with the issue of a growing proportion of ethnic Arabs in the Jewish state.
“Transfer” has been mooted explicitly only by far right-wingers in Israel.
Ms Livni is hoping to become Israel’s next prime minister, and opinion polls suggest she is in a close race with the right-wing Likud party.
Some Israeli politicians have suggested she may be trying to project a hardline image in an attempt to draw votes away from Likud. …
Meanwhile, a prominent far right-wing Likud member, Moshe Feiglin, has been demoted on the party’s candidate list.
Mr Feiglin, a settler who has espoused extreme anti-Palestinian views, was originally 20th but has been moved to 36th, making his election much less likely.
Party officials said the change was for technical reasons relating to the promotion of regional candidates; Mr Feiglin alleged it was politically motivated.
