Moshe "Mutz" Matalon (Hebrew: משה "מוץ" מטלון‎, born 12 May 1953) is an Israeli politician and member of the Knesset for Yisrael Beiteinu.


During his national service Matalon served as a paratrooper. He was injured during the Yom Kippur War and has used a wheelchair since, while practicing disabled sports and competing in javelin and shot put at the 1976 Summer Paralympics.

As a Likud member, Matalon was elected to Herzliya city council in 1994, serving until 2000. Between 2000 and 2008 he was chairman of the IDF Disabled Veterans' Organisation, and also served as chairman of the IDF's Disabled Fund. In these positions, he headed the Israeli delegations to the Paralympics in 2004 and 2008.

He was placed thirteenth on the Yisrael Beiteinu list prior to the 2009 elections, and entered the Knesset when the party won 15 seats.

Matalon currently lives in Herzliya and is married with four children.
