Moshe Feiglin is a hardline member of the Likud party who advocates annexation of the Palestinian territories and paying each family there 500,000 to relocate. That makes sense to me.

It’s a good interview. This in particular caught my attention:

Yes, I would like to see America coming out of its problems… I’m totally against this [U.S. foreign] aid [to Israel]. It cannot be when, first of all, the Americans are standing in line like two or three miles in the snow to get a job. To get any kind of aid from America when, economically, we are in a much, much better position doesn’t look moral to me.

But it’s much more than that. This aid is not in our favor, not economically, not militarily, not in any way. This aid serves psychological purposes, not anything else. We are talking about 1.5 percent of our income, of what Israel is producing — we can definitely deal without it.

Feiglin is the Ron Paul of Israel. Well, the closest guy to him at least. I’m not a fan of him but he’s still better then most, if not all, of the Labor party.

EDIT: Main reason I’m not in love with him is because I’m supportative of the Likud establishment. He’s gotta a big mouth. But Im glad he’s in knesset now.
