This site is not affiliated with the Yisrael Beytenu party. It is a snapshot of what the party proposed in the 2006 election.

Bringing the Zionist Dream to Life

Since before the State declared independence, not a day has passed on which we have not had to fight for our natural and historic right to live in it freely, with economic and political security to fulfill the Zionist dream. We stand here today, proud of our accomplishments as a self-governed state, a dedicated Jewish Nation, unwilling to forego that dream.

The Yisrael Beytenu party, which was founded by Avigdor Lieberman in 1999 as a national movement with the clear vision to follow in the brave path of Zev Jabotinsky, fulfills the three cardinal principles of Zionism: Aliyah (immigration), settlement, and defense of our homeland. Therefore, our lists for the 15th and 16th Knessets featured personalities of the Aliyah, settlement and security movements. From the day it was founded, Yisrael Beytenu raised the flag of the Jewish identity of the State of Israel. Yisrael Beytenu is the home for a secure and Jewish Israel.

Expanding the Infrastructure

In 2001, when Sharon’s first government was established, Avigdor Lieberman was appointed as the National Infrastructure Minister, continuing the job of Ariel Sharon. Lieberman worked effectively to save the water system from dire straits. He initiated water-treatment projects, which helped make Israel become a world leader in the field, and he legislated the “Natural Gas Law” to create a more competitive energy industry.

Raising an Economy

In 2003, when Sharon established his second government, Avigdor Lieberman was appointed as Transportation Minister. In this role, he worked with dedication to privatize El Al Israel Airlines and the public transportation companies. Lieberman also led a restructuring of Israel’s seaports through a separation of the ports into competing private companies. He also changed the train and roadwork authorities into government companies, a plan which reduced their budget by one-fifth.

Working for the Voters and the State

In the 15th Knesset, Yisrael Beytenu was the first party to introduce the idea of a presidential system, pushed for a constitution and Supreme Court reform. As well, in order to stabilize the Knesset and improve government effectiveness, Yisrael Beytenu passed the law to raise the voters threshold to reduce the number of parties in the Knesset.

Continuing to Perform

We don’t just talk, we perform! Yisrael Beytenu with Avigdor Lieberman will continue to perform, in the government and in the 17th Knesset. We will work with vigilance to actualize the Zionist vision of a Jewish State for the Jewish people, with an assurance of safety for each of its citizens. Yisrael Beytenu will act to control crime and make punishments harsher. We will raise the level of education for our children and strengthen the growth in the Israeli economy, through encouraging foreign investment and reducing government expenditure.

Stopping Crime - Internally Safe, Externally Secure

Crime is the most dangerous terror for Israeli society. It undermines our confidence as parents of children and as citizens, and erodes the ability of the state to protect society. LAU missiles in Netanya are no less dangerous than Kassam rockets in Ashqelon. If we are vulnerable from within, we appear weak from without.

Mandatory Sentencing

This is the time to arrest crime and lock it behind bars. We need to give authorities the power to uphold the laws, to improve the police force, make punishments harsher and return law and order to the streets of our cities.

Calling the Law to Order

We have established a broad committee of security, law enforcement and investigation experts, to prepare a detailed operation plan to diligently fight crime. This is the time to arrest crime and lock it behind bars. We need to give authorities the power to uphold the laws, to improve the police force, make punishments harsher and return law and order to the streets of our cities.

Trading Spaces Moving the Border Between Us, Not Among Us

The responsibility for primarily Arab areas such as Umm Al-Fahm and the “triangle” will be transferred to the Palestinian Authority. In parallel, Israel will officially annex Jewish areas in Judea and Samaria. Israel is our home; Palestine is theirs.

A New Citizenship Law

In order to enjoy the full rights of an Israeli citizen, one must also take on responsibilities. We will work to enact a citizenship law, which will require all Israeli citizens to pledge allegiance to the State and perform military or alternative national service.

Upgrading Education - Making Teaching a Career

We are dedicated to ensuring the best teachers for our children. A good teacher is a teacher for life. With proper policy and schedule changes, as well as incentive bonuses, we will see a marked improvement through out the country.

Encouraging the Teachers

We will develop a merit incentive system for teachers, based on the improvement of their students.

Rewarding the Extraordinary

Those who excel deserve more. When a student excels, society benefits. Students from the periphery who excel will receive full academic scholarships for university.

Providing Zionist, Value-Based Education

We will work to enact a value-based education plan, focusing on the blossoming of Jewish and Israeli culture and strengthening Zionist values and patriotism.

Strengthening Growth by Increasing Competition

Competition is good for all of us and good for the general economy. We will continue to privatize government companies and create an oversight committee to monitor their management.

Extracting the Potential of Our Economy

The time has come for the government to take responsibility for taxpayers’ money! We will change the priorities of the national budget and encourage export as a national goal for Israel.
