Chaim Ben Pesach: Sharon's Likud Victory Proves Feiglin Is Wrong.
Last week, the hopelessly corrupt and evil Likud Party Central Committee approved by a margin of 62% to 38% the proposal by left-wing Prime Minister Ariel Sharon to invite the Marxist Labor Party into a new Israeli government coalition. The purpose of the new Likud-Labor coalition will be to implement Sharon's suicidal plan to surrender the entire Gaza District and northern Samaria to the PLO Nazi terrorists in order to create an independent PLO terrorist state in the heartland of Biblical Israel. All of the Likud cabinet ministers who have opposed Sharon's plans to retreat from the Gaza District and northern Samaria completely reversed their positions and agreed to support Sharon's evil program after he threatened to fire them.
Treasury Minister Binyamin Netanyahu, Foreign Minister Silvan Shalom, Education Minister Limor Livnat, Agriculture Minister Yisrael Katz and Health Minister Danny Naveh all publicly opposed the Sharon unilateral surrender plan as a danger to little Israel's very existence. However, the moment Sharon threatened to fire them, these corrupt frauds placed their sordid political careers above the survival of the Jewish State.
The 2,000 members of the Likud Central Committee are elected to represent the hundreds of thousands of Likud Party members. Last spring, hundreds of thousands of Likud members voted in a referendum on Sharon's retreat plan.
The hundreds of thousands of Likud members voted against Sharon's surrender proposal by a margin of 60% to 40%. Before the vote, Sharon had publicly promised to abide by the results of the referendum. But after he lost overwhelmingly, Sharon the pathological liar immediately broke his public promise and announced that he would continue with his suicidal withdrawal plan.
Now, the Likud Central Committee - which is supposedly elected to represent Likud Party members - has joined Sharon in betraying the Likud's hundreds of thousands of rank-and-file voters, who voted overwhelmingly to oppose the Sharon plan to forcibly expel 8,500 heroic Jewish pioneers from their G-d-given homes in the Gaza District and northern Samaria.
Last week's Likud Central Committee vote was replete with massive fraud. One voter said on camera in an interview with Arutz 7 television that he voted four times for the Sharon plan.
Sharon's corrupt and evil son, Likud Knesset (Parliament) member Omri Sharon, has invited notorious members of Israeli organized crime into the Likud Central Committee to help "enforce order." Infamous Israeli gangsters routinely threaten and intimidate "disobedient" Likud Central Committee members at the behest of Omri Sharon.
Ariel and Omri Sharon have also promised large numbers of government jobim (jobs) to those Likud Central Committee members who support the Sharon expulsion plan.
Likud Knesset member Uzi Landau charged that the Likud Central Committee vote was fraudulently rigged. Indeed, everyone in the Likud knows that there is blatant and rampant fraud and corruption throughout the party, yet they remain in the Likud because it is Israel's ruling party.
For years, right-wing Jewish activists Moshe Feiglin and Shmuel Sackett have encouraged Jews to join the Likud in order to take over the party. Feiglin and Sackett formed a right-wing faction in the Likud known as Manhigut Yehudit (Jewish Leadership). Thousands of right-wing Jews have joined the Likud to become part of the Manhigut Yehudit faction.
In the beginning, JTF also supported Manhigut Yehudit even though we felt it was unlikely that they would be able to "conquer" Israel's ruling party from within.
However, we now believe that Manhigut Yehudit does more harm than good by diverting talented, dedicated and sincere right-wing Jews away from the two real battles: the first battle must be to build a new, idealistic, uncompromising political party that will eventually replace the corrupt and evil Likud; and the second battle must be to organize massive nonviolent resistance through civil disobedience, and through the creation of more Hilltop Youth communities in the areas which Sharon wants to surrender.
The new, idealistic, right-wing political party has already been created by heroic Jewish dissident Baruch Marzel. It is called the Chayil (Valor) Party.
JTF's allies, the noble Hilltop Youth, are organizing for the massive, nonviolent civil disobedience that must take place on the ground in order to physically block Sharon's wicked expulsion scheme with tens of thousands of right-wing Jewish activists prepared to vigorously resist with their bodies the attempt to destroy the beautiful Jewish communities in the Gaza District and northern Samaria.
In addition, thousands of Jewish soldiers and reservists have already signed petitions in which they pledge not to obey orders to expel their fellow Jews, and not to cooperate with Sharon's evil expulsion plan either directly or indirectly.
Instead of assisting these vital efforts, the Jews in Manhigut Yehudit waste their time, energy and money on a futile attempt to take over the Likud.
Manhigut Yehudit will never be able to overcome the corrupt Likud Party machinery, which includes tens of thousands of party activists who will ferociously defend the corruption - because the corrupt Likud power structure provides them with patronage jobs, government contracts and intimate contact with elected Israeli government officials on both the national and local level.
Moreover, Israel's business elite will make sure that corrupt and treasonous Likud leaders like Sharon always have tens of millions of dollars at their disposal to fight off any internal party challenges. Manhigut Yehudit cannot compete with that type of money.
Building a small party until it becomes big enough to take over the government is a realistic objective. Menachem Begin did it with the tiny Herut Party, which eventually became the Likud and was elected to run Israel's government in 1977.
The worst part of Manhigut Yehudit's activities is that they encourage right-wing Jews to vote for the Likud.
Not one of the Likud's 40 Knesset members has been willing to vote to bring down Sharon's government when there are "no confidence" motions in the Knesset. And not one of the 40 Likud Knesset members was willing to vote against Sharon's budget, which includes money for the treasonous Gaza District-northern Samaria expulsion plan.
The Likud is not going to be the salvation of Israel. On the contrary, the Likud is a cancer which imperils Israel's very survival.
On a personal level, we like Moshe Feiglin and Shmuel Sackett. And we like the other activists in Manhigut Yehudit.

But their strategy is disastrously misguided. The overwhelming Likud Central Committee vote last week proved it.
Unless HaShem (G-d) miraculously intervenes to bring down Sharon's despicable government, the only hope for stopping Israeli national suicide rests with JTF's allies - the Hilltop Youth and the Chayil Party.
