Ya’alon Quits, Yehuda Glick To Enter Knesset

8

Israeli Defense Minister Moshe Ya’alon of Likud announced this morning that he is quitting politics, following Prime Minister Bibi Netanyahu’s decision to hand his portfolio over to Yisrael Beytenu head MK Avigdor Liberman so as to bring his party into the coalition.

Arutz Sheva reports that on Thursday night Netanyahu spoke with Ya’alon on the phone and told him that “nothing is determined yet,” but apparently Ya’alon was not willing to wait it out and be replaced.

Ya’alon’s resignation will bring controversial Har Habayis activist Yehuda Glick into the Knesset as an MK, given his placement on Likud’s Knesset list.

  1. Isn’t Yaalon responsible for throwing dirt on that soldier who shot an Arab in self defense, as soon as the news came out, without bothering for an investigation, as a liberal knee jerk reaction. Good riddance. Don’t let the door hit you on the way out.
    To replace an Arab lover with a man who is sensitive to the Arab desecration of the Har Habais, is a double bonus.

  2. His infatuation with putting his feet and bearing on the Temple Mount before Israel has the readiness to have a Temple right now is an agitation for more hate in Israel.

    This will likely be unfortunate for Israel, but I wonder what more we will learn about the politics of Negative Social Value from his appointment to the Knesset.

    The sad years might be more clamorous.

    I hope we do in fact do well. Yaalon seemed intelligent. Wonder what more will be involved.

    Trouble I think but Israel will continue.

    Sticky mind for no value of Torah. Shalom.

  3. is glicks first mission going to be to permit yidden to go on har habayis & find a halacha allowing us to go before mashiach comes?

    • Would you permit a goy march into your shul, grab a Sefer Totah, claim that it was his cult leader’s rug, trample on it everyday, all while you just take it easy and enjoy life?! Even though we paskin that it is osur to go up, it doesn’t take away our responsibility to protest the Chilul H of goyim usurping and trampling upon our holiest place. We may disagree with Glick in the psak halacha of being allowed to go up, but Glick does something that nobody does: he asserts our possession of Har Habais, and he protests the desecration that Arabs commit every day.

  4. Don’t like Glick because we paskin it is a desecration for Har Habais to be trampled upon?-Why don’t you protest Arabs that are desecrating Har Habais according to all halachik opinions?!
    Don’t like Glick because we paskin it is isur koreis for Yiden to go up anywhere on the mountain?-Why don’t you protest(or try to mekarev) other ovrei koreis, such as desecrators of Shabos, Toeiva doers, Avoida Zora worshipers, etc.?!

  5. Watch out!!
    All we need are more yidn that go over to the Har Habais!!
    I hope someone that is willing to listen to the Gedoilim takes the possition.
