Those who condemned Rabbi Meir Kahane in his lifetime and death contributed to the murder of fellow Jews. Those who labeled him as an un-Jewish aberration will one day have to answer to the Almighty, for the blood that stains their hands. The problem is that mainstream Jewish leadership remains as clueless as it ever was. No respectful politician will broach the subject of transfer. They are too committed to concessions, or the notion of respectability.

Transfer: Remember The Halacha The Arabs of Israel are a lethal contagion. Their presence guarantees the murder of Jews. And they are growing stronger. Rabbi Kahane was the only one who presented a framework for authentic Jewish leadership that never compromised on the issues, even if it cost him votes, or led to the banning of his party (which it eventually did.) For as history has shown, the KACH party under Rav Kahane never compromised. As such, they terrified the establishment since their integrity to their values was total. Eventually, they were banned from the Knesset as a racist party, when the grotesque collusion of Labor and Likud joined hands to ban Kach.


Similarly today, the ideological battle must remain pure and unaffected by foreign influences. There are various individuals out there that present a skewed hybrid message, which purports to be “right-wing” but compromises on many issues and the Halacha. Rabbi Kahane’s undiluted Torah message is as imperative as it ever was. And the Halacha still hasn’t changed regarding the Arabs and other hostile gentile elements that endanger the Jewish body and soul. They still must go! One can choose to minimize the issue, question the current demographic threat, or sidestep the issue, but the theoretical question remains to be answered. Should the Arabs who vote be allowed to undo the Jewish State through legal processes?

As Rabbi Kahane often pointed out, the most dangerous Arabs are the fifth column Arabs within Israel’s current “borders,” not the Arabs of the liberated zones which Israel refuses to annex. All too often, these are the same Arabs that float under the radar, until they decide to plow into Jews with their vehicles. And Rabbi Kahane understood intrinsically that the greatest racists, the actual ones with real prejudice, are the Jewish liberals who think they can assuage Arab wrath and national/religious pride with the niceties of a civilized society, which no Arab/Islamic country has ever offered its citizens.

Rabbi Kahane notes:

“As a corollary to the myth that the Jewish State can also be a western democratic one, giving non-Jews exactly the kinds of equal rights possessed by Jews, is the delusion of “ coexistence between the Jews and Arabs.” And as part and parcel, of that picture of smiling, hand-holding Jews and Arabs, is the fiction of Arab loyalty to the State of Israel as transcending their Arabism. Nonsense!” (Revolution or Referendum, page 38)

Transfer. The word the Left demonized and labeled a racist concept. Yet Rabbi Kahane prophetically noted that the failure to throw out Arabs would eventually lead to the expulsion of Jews from parts of Eretz Yisroel. Rabbi Kahane foresaw the unnatural birth of Oslo. He understood that the failure to transfer Arabs would eventually lead to the expulsion of Jews from their homes to appease the Arabs. Long before that accursed day when Rabin shook Arafat’s bloody hand on the lawn of the White House, Rabbi Kahane thundered the terrifying choice that Israel had to make. Kahane or Arafat. We know how history unfolded. Evil men in power committed treason and illegally engaged with the PLO behind the Nation’s back. The Erev Rav chose Arafat, and rammed the lunatic decision down the throats of every Jew living in Israel.

Donny Fuchs made aliyah in 2006 from Long Island to the Negev, where he resides with his family. He has a keen passion for the flora and fauna of Israel and enjoys hiking the Negev desert. His religious perspective is deeply grounded in the Rambam's rational approach to Judaism.


  1. My own return to observance and zionism was largely inspired by the life and writings of this great Rav. Thank you for writing this wonderful tribute and thank you to the Jewish Press for publishing.

  2. I met Rabbi Meyer Kahane in Jerusalem and felt his energy and dynamic personality. He would have set Israel on a righteous and solid foundation to deal with murderous Islam whereas Bibi doesn't know what to do except to give in to them in shame in the eyes of the world.

  3. [Surak] Thank you, Mr. Fuchs. I'm one of those people who acknowledge in the closet "R. Kahane was right." Now what? The people are so delusional that it's hard for them to detect wisdom until they are personally hurt (and not always then). Otzma performed so poorly in the last election they didn't elect a single member to the Knesset. Perhaps Moshe Feiglin will succeed where others have failed; I don't know.

    R. Kahane was virtually alone in promoting a holistic Judaism that includes the critical ingredient of nationalism, a trait that is accepted in all other peoples of the world but is somehow controversial with respect to Jews. I enthusiastically share your rejection for G. Meir's inane hand-wringing comment about peace.

    Still, you must admit that as much as R. Kahane was factually correct about issues of our survival, he also scared off many Jews. His legacy is one part of what is needed to heal the Jewish nation, but the other part comes from the other great rabbinical leader of the 20th century, the Lubavitcher Rebbe. His warmth and ahavath Yisrael provided and still provide encouragement for our timid brethren to reconnect with our heritage. I am still looking for that leader who synthesizes the warmth, righteousness, and outreach of the Lubavitcher Rebbe with the passion and national dedication of R. Kahane. Chesed and g'vurah both giving rise to tifereth.

  4. Same for me and Rabbi Kahane instilled in me Jewish pride and the knowledge of the greatness that we lost in during exile. I used to religiously read Rabbi Kahane's articles in the Jewish Press every chance i had.
    Since my parents came from Iraq, I learned what Arabs were from them and the danger they pose to us. Rabbi Kahane IS right about the Arab cancer in Eretz Yisrael.

  5. As a great admirer of R' Kahane HY"D, i especially appreciated this quote: "In Eretz Yisroel, the Arabs were truly terrified of him. Like an enraged Shimshon Hagibor, the Arabs feared him, because much like Samson, his strength was an anomaly that they could not understand. It derived from the very personality of this magnificent tzadik. He had their number."

  6. The Jews one encounters in the TaNa"KH are not trembling, sniveling cowards begging the world to love them. And they weren't hyper-liberals who thought their great mission was to destroy the idea that there is such a thing as Objective Religious Truth and a One True G-d. The Jews of the TaNa"KH were rustic Theocratic warrior-shepherds who kicked tachat and took shemot. Even back when I was a Xian I admired Rabbi Kahana' (zt"l; Hy"d) and thought he was a gilgul of Yehoshu`a Bin Nun. And when reading the TaNa"KH, what picture forms in one's mind? Rabbi Kahana'–or (lehavdil!) Abe Foxman???
