Strange, how the late Rabbi Kahane’s views have moved from the extreme right to the center in 20 years.
Never mind his political agenda — while I can’t speak for anyone else, I personally could not endorse the transfer of Arabs any more than I would the transfer of Jews (although it’s interesting how those who destroyed Kahane over his Arab-transfer ideas, ended up transferring Jews). But his reading of our religious and political reality remains crisp. You don’t have to update anything – play it like he said it last night.
