1. Getting Boring
israel israeli ,   tel aviv   (11.27.12)
Fleishman writes about "the Likud's shift to the Right" as if it was true, even though the evidence and facts show it is not. As a certain Austrian thinker wrote in a book about his Struggle against people like Feiglin and was later repeated by the Austrian's friend in "Churchill's Lie Factory", for a lie to succeed you must repeat it over and over (Grosse Luge)
2. I would like to know
frank ,   rehovot   (11.27.12)
which parties will be aligned with which parties. As a voter I believe I have a right to know because that will influence my voting. As an example. I do not want HaBait Hyahudi to merge with anyone. If they are going to I want to know now because I will not vote for them. I want my party to be independent of the bloc. The real question becomes what if they say no and do yes? How do we get our politicians to commit to the citizens?

the habait hayahudi will run together with the national union and the likud will run with Yisrael beytenu , they are joint list not mergers mean that they can separate after that , Moshe Feglein is wrong in his suggestion because a merge between likud and NU will drive many moderate voters away from the party to vote the left so at the end of the day the right will lose !!!! , if u are religious vote habait hayahudi , the NU is considered a religious party , it will be led by a religious man Uri Ariel and has many religious members in the list shalom
4. Consolidation of Israeli parties is a good thing.
Chaim ,   Israel   (11.27.12)
There is no reason a nation the size of Israel should have so many political parties. It accomplishes nothing. Moreover, a multiplicity of patriotic parties causes vote splitting and increases the power of destructive leftists. Consolidation of Israeli parties is a good thing.
5. the problem with Feiglin
Larry ,   Los Angeles   (11.27.12)
His problem is that he is idealistic, zionistic, religious and honest and all of this put into a politicians body. The two, the good characteristics and politician can't exist together. But this is Israel; maybe we will see something interesting coming from him.
6. how many cliches in one article?
Rafi ,   Israel   (11.28.12)
This author is repeating all the boring claims of 2008 and before. Feiglin is a libertarian. He is the only exciting thing going on in politics in Israel today, precisely because he wants to free us all and tear the system of politics down.
7. #2 Frank: Merge or ally, so what?
Yehoshua Friedman ,   K. Hashachar Israel   (11.29.12)
You already knew that the Bayit Hayehudi was in line to form a coalition with the Likud, right? So what would be different in principle for them to agree to run as one list?
8. Larry - #5
Phillip Slepian ,   New Jersey, USA   (11.29.12)
I agree - Feiglin is the un-politician - a genuine idealist. But I say, give him a chance to prove himself. Many are skeptical, but I think he will stay true to his ideals. If he doesn't, he won't last long. Besides, how many true idealists are there who wish to truly lead the nation?
