Moledet was founded in 1988 by Rehavam Zeevi, who headed it until his murder by members of the PFLP in 2001, after which Rabbi Benny Elon was elected as chairman. In 1999, Moledet united with Herut and Tkuma to form the National Union (איחוד לאומי, pronounce Ihud Leumi). Later Herut left the Union. In 2003, Yisrael Betenu (led by Avigdor Lieberman) joined the National Union, and became the largest party in it. Rehavam Zeevi (help· info) (רחבעם זאבי-גנדי) (June 20, 1926 - October 17, 2001) was an Israeli general, politician and historian who founded the right-wing nationalist Moledet party. ...

While other parties (Kach, National Union) have advocated transfer, Moledet is the party most associated with this notion in Israel, due to its almost lack of any other element in its platform, and due to Zeevi's success in bringing together opposing elements (in particular, both secular and religious) under the transfer flag. In general it advocates voluntary transfer (see the Elon Peace Plan for details), but Zeevi has been known to suggest forced transfer as well. Kach was an extremist right-wing Israeli party led by Meir Kahane. ...

Throughout its existence, Moledet remained a small party and never exceeded 3 members of the Knesset (out of 120). As of 2004, it has two Knesset Members, Elon and Professor Arie Eldad. In its beginnings, it was considered unsuitable to participate in the coalition. As the political tensions in Israel exacerbated—and possibly because it was at that time part of the National Union, which was not so clearly associated with the notion of transfer—it finally joined the coalition in 2001. Zeevi was made minister of tourism and served in this position until his assassination, after which Elon replaced him. He was dismissed in mid-2004 due to his opposition to Prime Minister Ariel Sharon's Gaza withdrawal plan.
