    Feiglin is a fanatical fascist. Note not only his ethnic-centered ideology but also the name of his faction "Jewish Leadership", emphasis on Leader (Fuhrer). Fortunately, he seems to be politically inept. He is attempting to take over Likud, a large nationalistic party, extremist, but not nearly as extreme as Feiglin is. Chances for such a takeover are slim. A much better route for Feiglin would have been to attempt to take over the "National Union", a collection of a few small settler groups and mostly religious. They are ripe for a takeover by a dedicated small group. Their Leader can become a partner to Likud and perhaps even unite with it after some time and take over. So far, Feiglin`s bark is worse than his bite. But if he learns his lesson, he might become a real danger.
