Don't get your hopes up.

The rumor is:

The Tel Aviv District Court has ordered the Likud to restore MK Michael Ratzon to the position he earned on the Likud's election slate. Ratzon had been ranked 24th, a realistic position in this election. He had been pushed down to the 37th position along with Moshe Feiglin (pushed from 20th to 36th) and Ehud Yatom (pushed from 29th to 38th) by party leader Binyamin Netanyahu. The Likud is meeting now to decide whether to appeal. If the decision stands, Feiglin and Yatom - who had not appealed to the courts - ought to be able to demand that the Likud's internal court order their positions restored. Israel Radio reports that if they demand that their positions be restored, there is a "good chance" that they will be.

I hate to be the pessimist, but in my opinion, those of us who support Feiglin, should not get our hopes up.  The establishment in Israel has too long of a record of supressing straight talking, practical people like Moshe Feiglin.  Bibi will pull a new trick out of his sleeve to keep Feiglin out.

I really hope that I am wrong...

Sunday morning 9:24 am.  It seems that it is no longer a rumor.  Read more at Arutz Sheva.
