Who is Feiglin? Is he a commie or something?
No. One of the good guys.
He’s considered a hard liner and a Netanyahu rival. Netanyahu will be looking over his shoulder now.
The Likud liberals close to Netanyahu (himself a moderate) have been pushed down to unrealistic places on the party list.
Only the first 25 or so candidates have a realistic prospect of winning a seat. I note the Israeli Left is not happy with the Likud's rightward shift.
Criticism coming from them is the highest form of praise. Haaretz, Israel's Palestinian daily in Hebrew, has already described the results of the Likud primaries as a "tectonic earthquake."
Likud voters did not like how Netanyahu handled the recent Gaza war and handed him a resounding defeat. His closest political allies will not be serving in the next Knesset due to be elected in January.
The bottom line: the good guys in Israel won big tonight.

You so did not just ask that!
