Moshe Feiglin on Facebook Live: Situation Similar to Pre-World Wars
The following are translated excerpts from Moshe Feiglin’s Facebook Live session on Saturday night, 16 Adar/March 3, ’18.
The Left and the Right in Israel are at each other’s throats, and they do not understand how serious our security situation is. There are well over 100,000 missiles aimed at Israel right now, and as we know, a gun that makes an appearance in the first act, will shoot by the third.
The world today is like a barrel of gasoline, with the leaders dancing around it, brandishing matchboxes. Not only the leader of North Korea, but the leader of Russia, as well. Certainly, the leaders of Turkey and Iran, and terror organizations like Hezbollah, which are regular armies. Each of them are shaking their matchboxes and threatening to light a match. It is reminiscent of the situation that existed on the eve of the two World Wars.
Amidst this reality, Netanyahu has eroded Israel’s strategic situation to the point where Israel’s fighter planes cannot cross our border. We have to understand that democratic, peace-loving nations that amass weapons do so for self-defense. But when you have tyrants sitting on your border, amassing precision weapons, and you limit your strategic capabilities and sign all sorts of Munich Accords with them, you are likely to find yourself in situations exponentially more serious when the pistol finally fires. And it will fire. Iran will not change its plans for us because we are now limiting our Air Force to flights within Israel’s borders.
