Zehut Party

Israel Political Parties: Zehut

Moshe Feiglin, a former member of the Likud, announced the establishment of the “Zehut – the Israeli Jewish Movement” party in March 2015.

Zehut is an Israeli-Jewish party that advocates liberty and aspires to reform society and the world out of loyalty to the God of Israel. The party will act to lead the State of Israel as a Jewish state and strive to achieve the following goals:

●          A Jewish State – A state that matures from a Zionism of existence to a Zionism of destiny; from a survival mentality to the mentality and challenge of perfecting the world.

●          A State of Liberty – A state that restores responsibility to the citizen and reduces its involvement in private lives to a minimum.

●          A State of Family and Community – A state that fortifies family values and encourages community.

●          A State of Abundance – A state that maintains an open economy within the restraining framework of the Jewish culture of kindness and mutual responsibility.

●          A Sovereign State – A state that actualizes and fortifies its sovereignty in all parts of the Land of Israel under its control: first and foremost, Jerusalem and the Temple Mount. A state that develops Jerusalem as a diplomatic and spiritual center for the Nation of Israel and for all humanity.

●          A State of Peace – A state that strives to end warfare and bloodshed by defeating its enemies. A state that works for the good of humanity and the world.

In addition, Feiglin says the party supports the free market, legalizing cannabis and creating a voucher system for education.

Zehut opposes the creation of a Palestinian state. Feglin claims, “there’s no demographic problem anymore. Jewish women are having more children than the Arabs. There’s going to be a Jewish majority of 80 percent between the Mediterranean and the Jordan River in less than 15 years.” He also believes most Palestinians will leave if given incentives to do so.

Feiglin also advocates for Israel to manufacture its own weapons or buy them on the free market rather than rely on the United States. “American aid only causes  harm to the Israeli economy and to Israel’s ability to defend itself,” he says. “Israelis are taught to think that if America doesn’t give us this aid, Israel will disappear.”
