In 1988, former general Rehavam Ze’evi founded Moledet (homeland). Moledet joined the right-wing Likud coalition in 1990, but left the government in protest over Israel’s participation in the Madrid Conference. After the 1992 election, liberals tried to disqualify Moledet stating that its platform of transferring West Bank and Gazan Palestinians to other Arab countries was anti-democratic. Moledet also wanted to give financial compensation for loss of property and work and also to maintain a democracy. Dispute arose over its policy toward Israel’s Arab population, however, Moledet, considered the successor of Kach, was allowed to keep its three seats, which it won in the 1992 election.
