1. I also cut my Likud membership card in two

Actually, I haven't yet. Just wanted to get your attention. I haven't voted Likud in the past three elections because the party stopped being broad-based. It no longer appeals to the majority of the nation, but has pigeon-holed itself as white, right, might, and sad to say, corrupt (not Bibi, but Katz and Bitan). I want a true centrist party that is not obsessed with slandering people as OMG YOU'RE RIGHT WING and OMG YOU'RE LEFT WING and therefore both of you are subhuman scumbag traitors to the cause.
At the same time, the center has to embrace both religion (all of 'em, with Judaism at the fore cuz it's the majority) and minorities (Muslims, Christians, Druze) and give a platform that addresses the entire country, as well as those criminals running the shows in Ramallah and GazaCity - who are part of the problem.
I totally agree with Begin, who was one of the last MKs who had credibility to go with backbone and morality.
2. Benny Begin is one of the few honest men left standing
Mark Jeffery Koch ,   Mount Laurel NJ USA   (09.09.19)
Benny Begin is one the few people left in Israel that believe in democracy. A nation that calls itself the only democracy in the Middle East does not install camera's in Arab polling places, and its leader does not exhort people to come vote because Arab CITIZENS are "coming in busses in droves to vote" as a scare tactic, and a nation that calls itself the only democracy in the Middle East does not spend a pittance in Arab citizens neighborhoods on infrastructure and education of what it spends in Jewish neighborhoods. When democracy and justice are for only some then they are in reality for none.
3. Often, Rebbe's son becomes a pimp or worse, so what, his
family name is no guarantee of quality or anything else for that matter.
So he will not vote Likud, fine with me.
BTW: look at the offspring of Burg: a total waste of Jewish genes, but it's his life,( in whatever place he 's chosen to live it...)
4. Because the party line doesn't suit him anymore, it doesn't
mean, that the agenda of today's Likud is wrong or inappropriate in any way.
That's what other Parties are for; to provide alternative for the picky (and naive) citizens....
5. vote Liberman!
6. Benny Begin has gone haywire long ago
Steve Benassi ,   Minneapolis USA   (09.10.19)
7. Who cares.

Bennie Begin never was like his father to whom he is compared all the time.
