MK Feiglin Attacks Bid for Likud Support of Two States


Member of Knesset Moshe Feiglin attacked, Sunday, members of the Likud Central Committee who plan to propose a change in the party's bylaws to include support for the notion of two states for two peoples between the Mediterranean Sea and the River Jordan. He said the party rose by the efforts of veterans of the pre-state underground "who sacrificed all that was dear to them for the vision of the land of Israel in its completeness," adding that in the first line of the bylaws, "The center of the party voted unanimously against the establishment of a Palestinian state."

Feiglin explained, "The idea of ​​dividing the country has led, so far, to the spilling of blood and terrible deterioration of our international standing. I call for convening of the conference, and I am sure that the members of the Likud will vomit crazy ideas like these from their midst; ideas that have been shown to endanger the state of Israel and lead again and again to the Likud losing [its hold on] the government."
