Feiglin: Joubran Should Give Back his Israeli ID


Moshe Feiglin, head of the Likud’s Jewish Leadership faction, expressed support Wednesday for Supreme Court Justice Salim Joubran’s refusal to sing the Israeli national anthem on Tuesday. “Justice Joubran is correct not to sing something he believes to be a lie, the anthem that recalls that Israel is the state of the Jews,” he said.

However, Feiglin continued, “If he is being honest, he must return his Israeli ID card and make do with the status of ‘permanent resident.’”
