Sunday Night in Bet Shemesh, Israel (Live Webcast)
January 19, 2012...
This Sunday night, January 22, 2012, at 8:15 P.M. in Bet Shemesh, Shmuel Sackett, Manhigut Yehudit's International Director will be facing off in a debate of national importance to determine the proper path forward for those in Israel's "National Camp", and by extension, to discuss their vision for the future of the State of Israel. ('National Camp' being defined as the group that wishes for Israel to annex and settle instead of ceding to her enemies the lands liberated by Israel during the War of 1967.)
With the primary election for Chairman of the Likud - between Moshe Feiglin and Benjamin Netanyahu - set for January 31, the tension surrounding this debate is rising as the poll numbers show Mr. Feiglin - recently labeled 'the most important man in Israeli political discourse' by former Knesset speaker Avraham Burg (Labor) - gaining on the incumbent Prime Minister Netanyahu.
Mr. Sackett, who will be representing Mr. Feiglin (of the National Camp), will be facing off against Daniel Tauber, the Executive Director of Likud Anglos, and Emmanuel Navon, who will be a candidate for the Likud's next Knesset slate, in the sole English-only event of the campaign.
The debate will be moderated by Gil Hoffman, chief political analyst of the Jerusalem Post.
The three men will be discussing and debating, among other issues, the following:
- What is the best path to move Israel's National Camp forward?
- What is the significance of the January 31 primary election between Mr. Feiglin and Mr. Netanyahu?
- Considering that Mr. Netanyahu destroys Jewish towns, freezes Jewish construction, and states repeatedly that he wishes to create an Arab state in the Jewish biblical heartland of Judea and Samaria, how should the National Camp relate to him?
- Where does the Likud stand on the Land of Israel, and how should the National Camp relate to the Likud?
All are invited to watch a live webcast of the two-hour event on the Moshe Feiglin Campaign website starting at 8:15 P.M. (1:15 P.M. New York time).
