Manhigut Yehudit


Manhigut Yehudit
(Jewish Leadership Movement)
   Orthodox, right-wing, faction of the Likud Party headed by Moshe Feiglin. Its declared goal is to "bring genuinely Jewish leadership to Israel"; "to accomplish our goal, we plan to take over the leadership of the Likud—the only party in Israel that is a microcosm of Israeli society." It opposed Ariel Sharon's Gaza unilateral disengagement plan and worked for Sharon's ouster as Likud leader. Feiglin took 12 percent of the vote in the 19 December 2005 Likud leadership primary won by Benjamin Netanyahu. He and Netanyahu subsequently engaged in a public debate over the inclusion of Manhigut Yehudit members on the Likud slate (and its policies on the party platform) for the March 2006 election to the 17th Knesset. Feiglin was soundly defeated by Netanyahu in a Likud Party leadership primary in August 2007, receiving only 23 percent of the vote compared to Netanyahu's 73 percent.
