Which Israeli Politician Resonated with Leonard Cohen?
Leonard Cohen Was a Zionist – I Know Because He Told Me So

In an effort to better understand his current perspective of the issue, I asked if there was a particular Israeli politician who resonated with him, whose ideas he found appealing. “Moshe Feiglin,” he responded, referring to the former leader of the Manhigut Yehudit faction of the governing Likud party.
I was surprised by Cohen’s familiarity with Feiglin, no less that the nationalist leader’s views had found favor with the octogenarian star. “We need to separate from them (the Palestinians),” he told me. “But it must be humane.”
