Otzma Yehudit's witty and unimpressive number two

Srugim interviewed Yitzchak Wasserlauf (sp?), the candidate in the number two slot for the Otzma Yehudit party list for Knesset. I never heard of him before and know nothing about him, but I do find him, from just this interview, to be both witty, which I like, and unimpressive, which I dont like, at the same time.

Specifically referring to the portion of the interview in which they discussed the Otzma Yehudit policy they want to push in the next government should they be a part of it that will have anyone deemed unfaithful to the State of Israel banished from Israel - Wasserlauf explains that anyone who throws rocks or molotov cocktails at IDF soldiers or does other things to harm the State of Israel and supports murderers of babies will be banished.

So I like that he has already worked out that the way the deportation will work is that they will take the same people who planned the banishment of Jews from their homes in Gush Katif back in 2005 with fully staffed professionals who worked out all the details. Those same people who did such a good and professional job evicting thousands of Jews from their homes and deporting them to other part s of the country should be able to put together a plan to banish and deport people who are disloyal to the State of Israel.

Now that is witty. I like that.

What I think is unimpressive and what I dont like is that with all this time that he had until now, all he can come up with is a headline - we will deport the unfaithful - but has no actual plans. When asked for even the most basic details of his grandiose plan, such as how it will work, how they will determine who is unfaithful, where to deport to, how to deport, he has no answers and says they will have to work that out but right now they just want to talk about the concept.

Sorry, but that is unimpressive. If this is something they actually want to do, they need to be ready to present a plan, even knowing it will have to be adjusted and amended later. If all it is even in their own heads is a headline, this is something that is never going to happen and something they never intend on even trying to push forward.

  1. Anyone with any sense knows this will never happen - it is just publicity. That being the case, it is upsetting that a party is outright lying to the voters.
