MK Feiglin Links Oslo Process, Divorced Fathers' Suicide


MK Moshe Feiglin (Likud-Beytenu) pointed to a connection, this week, between the Oslo process and an attack on basic identities in Israel, with family identity first and foremost among these. Replying to questions from divorced fathers' rights activists at a conference in the Bnei Brak branch of Likud on Sunday, Feiglin said that together with the attack on the Land of Israel in the early 90s, extremist elements also attacked the most basic identity – that of the family unit.

This attack, he explained, begins with an offensive against men – who are “the family,” in his words – and continues from there to attack women, who are “the home.” The attack on the family unit is therefore connected to the systemic victimization of divorced and divorcing men, he said. He committed to take action to correct this wrong.
