MK Aryeh Eldad warned Israelis on Monday that voting for Likud because of Moshe Feiglin's presence in the list would be a mistake.

Feiglin will most likely be dismissed from the Knesset in the course of the Knesset's next term, he predicted.

"Feiglin has to face a real moral dilemma," he explained. "If he betrays his real values and supports the Netanyahu government in ideological votes of no confidence, he will lose all the credit he has now."

However, he added, if Feiglin supports a no confidence motion submitted by Eldad, his future in Likud will be short; "Once he votes no confidence after destruction of an outpost he will be kicked out of Likud and turn into a one-man faction."

The Power to Israel faction, which includes MKs Eldad and Michael Ben Ari, is competing with the Jewish Home / Tekuma and Likud Beytenu for religious Zionist and nationalist votes.
