Bibi is playing “King of the Mountain.”
(IsraelNN.com) Likud leaders are up in arms over the 23 percent support Jewish Leadership faction leader Moshe Feiglin won in Tuesday's leadership party primaries. Incumbent chairman Binyamin (Bibi) Netanyahu won an overwhelming majority of 73 percent, but Feiglin's impressive showing angered Knesset Member Netanyahu's camp.
They stressed that most of Feiglin's supporters do not vote for Likud in general elections and that a large number voted for the extreme right wing activist Baruch Marzel in the last general elections. Likud leaders plan to bring the issue to the party's courts.
Feiglin has declared his backing was a victory for his camp's growing influence and scorned MK Netanyahu's refusal to allow them to appear together, as traditionally is done during the victory speech.
