Hazit: The Jewish National Front -- By Prof. Paul Eidelberg

Hazit “The Jewish National Front” joined by the Yamin Israel Party, stands for three basic principles: (1) Am Yisrael, (2) Torat Yisrael, and (3) Eretz Yisrael.

Here is how Hazit, armed with the institutional reform program of Yamin Israel, plans to promote these principles.

1. To promote Am Yisrael, power must be shifted from political parties to the people. Studies indicate that an increasing majority of the people feel powerless. What makes them powerless? Simple: Members of the Knesset (MKs) are not individually elected by, and accountable to the people in regional or constituency elections.

Here are three shameful and disastrous consequences:

a. Shortly before the 1999 elections, 29 MKs hopped over to rival parties, thus betraying their supporters. They were seeking a safe slot on their new party’s list.

b. In 2004, 23 Likud MKs voted for “Disengagement” contrary to their campaign pledge in the 2003 elections. (Would they have done so if they had to go back to a regional constituency where they would have to compete against a rival candidate?)
c. A loser like Shimon Peres “author of Oslo” has been in office for more than four decades! Why? Because he has a safe slot on his party’s list.

Note: Regional elections are consistent with Deut. 1:13: “Select for yourselves men who are wise, understanding, and known to your tribes and I will appoint them as your leaders.” After the Second Temple, the areas of the tribes were called “districts.” Thus, to empower Am Yisrael, MKs must be personally elected by the voters, the practice of all democracies, many smaller in size and population than Israel. This is the position of Hazit, a position opposed by National Union, the National Religious Party, and the Likud.

2. To preserve the Jewish heritage or the concept of Torat Yisrael, we advocate enactment of a law that affirms the Jewish essence of the State as the State’s paramount principle to which all other principles are subordinate. This does NOT entail any theocracy, a term foreign to Judaism. To preserve Israel as a Jewish state, Hazit endorses Yitzhak Rabin’s warning of May 6, 1976:

“We must prevent a situation of an insufficient Jewish majority ....There is room for a non-Jewish minority on condition that it accepts the destiny of the State vis-a-vis the Jewish people, culture and tradition. The minority is entitled to equal rights as individuals with respect to their distinct religion and culture, but not more than that.”


a. Hazit will insist on enforcement of Basic Law: The Knesset, which prohibits any party that negates the Jewish character of the State.

b. To stop the decline of Israel’s Jewish majority, we must increase aliya dramatically by raising the dignity of the Jewish State.

This necessitates reform of Israel’s undemocratic and unJewish political and judicial institutions, which foster corruption as well as contempt for the Jewish heritage.

c. Hazit advocates amending the “grandfather clause” of the law of Return to limit the influx of non-Jews into the State of Israel.

d. We must also increase and improve the content of Jewish education in the public schools.

Note: Hazit has a purely democratic program to deal with the demographic problem, which, in the final analysis, is NOT a demographic problem. Hazit’s goal is to cultivate Jewish national pride, the mainstay of Eretz Yisrael.

3. The ONLY way to safeguard Eretz Yisrael is to adopt a non-compromising position on the territorial issue. This position need not be based solely on religious grounds. It can be justified on strategic grounds, provided one has the courage to face the truth about the implacable hostility of Israel’s enemies, the so-called Palestinians: the vast majority is committed to Israel’s destruction.

a. A generation of Arab children has been educated to emulate suicide bombers. (Middle East expert Daniel Pipes has warned it would take at least two generations to undo this brainwashing.)

b. The retreat from Gaza has already resulted in Gaza’s becoming the world’s capital of international terrorism.

c. The erroneous and even unlawful ruling that Gaza, Judea, and Samaria constitute “occupied territory” magnifies Arab demands and reinforces their commitment to Israel’s truncation and eventual destruction, as indicated by former IDF Chief of Staff Lt.-Gen. Moshe Ya’alon.

Note I: One of the greatest Talmudists of the 20th century, the renowned Rabbi Dr. Chaim Zimmerman (z’’l), wrote a 10,000 word halachic discourse on “The Prohibition of Abandoning Land in Eretz Yisrael” a discourse that took fully into consideration the principle of pekuach nefesh, the saving of Jewish life. Hazit stands by this halachic conclusion.

Note II. To maximize its ability to maintain a non-compromising position on Eretz Yisrael, Israel must replace its inept and unstable system of multi-party cabinet government. Needed is a presidential system of government whose cabinet consists not of rival party leaders competing for a larger slice of the national budget, but of PROFESSIONALS who support the principles and program of the nationally elected president. Hazit is the leading exponent of this reform.

If you want to empower the Jewish people, if you want your children and grandchildren to live in a Jewish state in the Land of Israel, Hazit is your party.

Press Release

The Merger of Yamin Israel and the Jewish National Front

The Yamin Israel Party, under the present leadership of Prof. Paul Eidelberg, Eleonora Shifrin and Prof. Israel Hanukoglu, is happy to announce its merger with the Jewish National Front (Hazit) under the chairmanship of Baruch Merzel.

Prof. Hanukoglu, a former chairman of Professors for a Strong Israel, and a former science adviser to prime minister Benjamin Netanyahu, will head Hazit’s election campaign. Prof. Paul Eidelberg, Eleonora Shifrin and Yamin Israel board member Yakov Segal will join the leadership of Hazit.

We are especially pleased that Hazit has enthusiastically adopted Yamin Israel’s comprehensive program of institutional reform. Together we offer an alternative to Israel’s existing system of government, whose political and judicial institutions violate basic democratic as well as Jewish principles.

The purpose of our merger is to serve as a foundation for a broad coalition of Jewish nationalist groups that will offer “for the first time” a real representation to the nationalist camp in the Knesset.

Together we are committed to an uncompromising position regarding Eretz Yisrael, Am Yisrael, and Torat Yisrael.

Respectful of our heritage, we shall fight to transform Israel’s unJewish and unrepresentative system of government whose policies are leading to Israel’s demise as a Jewish state.

We call upon all extra-parliamentary Jewish groups to join Hazit, the one and only Jewish National Front.

Good Broadcast News

( ABC Radio's nationally-syndicated "John Batchelor Show" will broadcast live Monday night from the Arutz Sheva Radio "War Wagon" alongside Israel's border with Gaza.

Arutz Sheva, and leading US website (WND) join in hosting John Batchelor for the next three days in Israel.

In an exclusive interview with Arutz-7, Batchelor explained the purpose of his trip to the Middle East: "This is where the war is. The bad guys are in every direction. I'm going to talk to the bad guys and make it very clear to my audience back home, who the threat is." After a pause, Batchelor added, "And it ain't Israel."

The article below was published in September 2004:



Mr. Tsvi Kukenheim of Beitar Illit, Israel, approached the present writer with an elaborate plan called “Achdut Beit Yisrael”—which may be translated as the “United House of Israel.” Although I did not regard the plan as politically feasible, its logic prompted me to draft a one-page scenario which might be sent to a few nationalist Knesset Members as a preliminary to face-to-face meetings. Accordingly, appointments were made with two MKs known to be utterly opposed to uprooting Jews from Gaza. Their reaction to the Achdut Beit Yisrael plan could be informative; and even if we failed to elicit support for the plan, no one could accuse us for not trying. In any event, the following scenario was sent to our selected Knesset Members:

1. The historical record indicates that the formation of a joint party list tends to produce a number of Knesset seats exceeding the total of those previously won by the individual parties forming that list.

2. To form a joint list, the participating parties must have at least one issue which they regard as of paramount importance—enough to override their differences. That issue is and must be opposition to the Sharon Plan to uproot Jews from their homes in Gaza and, ultimately, from Judea and Samaria, to establish a Palestinian state.

3. A joint list—call it Achdut—consisting of Ichud Leumi, Shas, Mafdal, and United Torah Judaism (UTJ) would have 29 seats: Shas – 11; Ichud Leumi – 7; Mafdal – 6; UTJ – 5.

a. 29 seats far exceed the 19 won by Labor-Meimad in the 2003 elections.
b. Since Likud is split on the Sharon Plan, it will lose perhaps 7 or 8 seats in the next election. These seats will go to Achdut. Since Achdut will then have at least 36 seats, while Likud will have no more than 33, Achdut would be called upon to form the next government! This would constitute nothing less than a political but bloodless revolution, one that would save Israel.
c. If Achdut divides its 36 seats based on the 2003 percentages, the result will be:

Shas (38%) — 14 seats
Ichud Leumi (24%) — 9 seats
Mafdal (21%) — 7 seats
UTG (17%) — 6 seats

4. These proportions can be adjusted before future national elections by means of a primary election with all four parties competing.

5. Achdut’s coalition partner would obviously be the Likud. Achdut’s 36 seats plus an estimated 34 for Likud would yield a total of 70.

6. Problem: Who will be the prime minister? This depends on who is chosen as Achdut’s chairman.

a. If the chairmanship goes to Shas, this would make Achdut a non-starter. The question is whether Shas would forgo the chairmanship in view of the ministerial positions it would receive under an Achdut-led government? (Obviously each of the four parties will receive ministerial posts, which of course will have to be negotiated with Achdut’s coalition partner, the Likud.
b. We favor a religious prime minister, and for many reasons.

7. Other issues on which the four parties of Achdut can agree:

a. Legislation to reverse the declining Jewish majority of the state.
b. Enforcement of Basic Law: The Knesset, which prohibits any party that negates the Jewish character of the state.
c. Enforcement of the 1952 Citizenship Law which empowers the Interior Minister to revoke the citizenship of any Israel national that commits an act of disloyalty to the State. (The term “act” should be defined to protect freedom of speech and press.)
d. Amending the method of appointing Supreme Court judges.
e. Ending the fascist suppression of freedom of speech directed against religious and rightwing opponents of disengagement, meaning the uprooting of Jews from Jewish land.

8. The formation of Achdut is a tacit admission that it was a serious mistake for Ichud Leumi and Mafdal to join the Likud government, especially with Shinui, if only because the Likud and Shinui chairmen (respectively, Ariel Sharon and Tommy Lapid) favor a Palestinian state. This mistake must be publicly acknowledged. Therefore,

a. Each of the four parties of Achdut must publicly state that it will NOT join a Likud government.
b. The four parties must then proceed to work out the details of a joint list agreement. □

November 30, 2005 (14 agonizing months later):

The above plan was sent to Effie Eitam as well as to Benny Elon and Arieh Eldad. We spoke with the latter two, but without results.

Now the 25 Jewish communities of Gaza and northern Samaria are gone. Their loss has split the Likud, from which Sharon disengaged to form the Kadima party. Since Kadima explicitly advocates a Palestinian state, some may think the Achdut Beit Yisrael plan may now be viable, that it might unite on that crucial issue. I don’t think so. Disengagement has revealed that neither Shas nor UTJ has taken an unambiguous stand against a Palestinian state, or at least against abandonment of other parts of Eretz Yisrael. The same may be said of both Ichud Leumi (National Union) and the shrunken Likud.

Furthermore, neither Shas nor UTJ will unite with Mafdal, which abandoned them when it joined the Sharon government; and one can be morally certain that Shas and UTJ will not form a joint list with any secular party.

The reader will therefore understand why the present writer’s Yamin Israel party has merged with Hazit, the Jewish National Front, which takes a non-compromising position on Eretz Yisrael. However, if my assessment of Shas and UTJ is incorrect, then the Achdut Beit Yisrael plan, slightly modified, may be viable. In that case, the parties involved, animated by the spirit of Hazit, should be able to unite around the five issues enumerated in section 7 above.
