An Open Letter to the World
By Rabbi Meir Kahane, OBM Tue, September 19, 2006, 4:51 pm
Rabbi Meir Kahane, OBM, was a strong Jew who believed in a Jewish State that apologized neither for its Jewishness nor its willingness to fight to survive. He was vilified by the Left, especially the Israeli government as he gained popularity dramatically among the Likud voters, threatening the status quo. The Israeli Supreme Court outlawed his party as racist when it used quotes from the Five Books of Moses. He was assassinated by an Arab named Nosair on the streets of New York -- the same Arab who later stood trial as a co-conspirator of Shaikh Omar Abdel Rahman and received a life sentence plus fifteen years imprisonment for the 1993 World Trade Center bombing, conspiracy to use explosives against New York landmarks, and a plot to assassinate U.S. politicians.
The following is a letter Rabbi Kahane, OBM, wrote to the world. It is a strong letter based on an unpleasant history, but a true one nonetheless. What rings out, however, is the clarifying distinction between the call by Muslims and Arabs around the world claiming victimhood and hatred and calling for murder and indeed terrorizing the world with actual murder, and this one Jew's proclamation that his desire is not to conquer or convert but to be left alone. With all of the Left-wing and Arab-based conspiracy theories of Jews manipulating the US government into war expeditions in Iraq and elsewhere, the simple truth is that Jews around the world would be happy to be just left alone in one little piece of real estate surrounded by more than 21 Islamic states with a collective land mass 649 fold greater than Israel's and a total population 49 fold greater. When Muslims can blame the Jew, the American, the European, and even the Pope for their misery and wretchedness, one might conclude that the condition they find themselves in is a product of their own making and constitution.
The text of the letter follows:
AN OPEN LETTER TO THE WORLD
I understand that you are upset by us, here in Israel.
Indeed, it appears that you are quite upset, even angry.
Indeed, every few years you seem to become upset by us. Today, it is the "brutal repression of the Palestinians"; yesterday it was Lebanon; before that it was the bombing of the nuclear reactor in Baghdad and the Yom Kippur War and the Sinai campaign. It appears that Jews who triumph and who, therefore, live, upset you most extraordinarily.
Of course, dear world, long before there was an Israel, we - the Jewish people - upset you.
We upset a German people who elected Hitler and upset an Austrian people who cheered his entry into Vienna and we upset a whole slew of Slavic nations - Poles, Slovaks, Lithuanians, Ukrainians, Russians, Hungarians and Romanians. And we go back a long, long way in the history of world upset.
We upset the Cossacks of Chmielnicki who massacred tens of thousands of us in 1648-49; we upset the Crusaders who, on their way to liberate the Holy Land, were so upset at Jews that they slaughtered untold numbers of us.
For centuries, we upset a Roman Catholic Church that did its best to define our relationship through inquisitions, and we upset the arch-enemy of the church, Martin Luther, who, in his call to burn the synagogues and the Jews within them, showed an admirable Christian ecumenical spirit.
And it is because we became so upset over upsetting you, dear world, that we decided to leave you - in a manner of speaking - and establish a Jewish state. The reasoning was that living in close contact with you, as resident-strangers in the various countries that comprise you, we upset you, irritate you and disturb you. What better notion, then, than to leave you (and thus love you)- and have you love us and so, we decided to come home - home to the same land we were driven out 1,900 years earlier by a Roman world that, apparently, we also upset.
Alas, dear world, it appears that you are hard to please.
Having left you and your pogroms and inquisitions and crusades and holocausts, having taken our leave of the general world to live alone in our own little state, we continue to upset you. You are upset that we repress the poor Palestinians. You are deeply angered over the fact that we do not give up the lands of 1967, which are clearly the obstacle to peace in the Middle East.
Moscow is upset and Washington is upset. The "radical" Arabs are upset and the gentle Egyptian moderates are upset.
Well, dear world, consider the reaction of a normal Jew from Israel.
In 1920 and 1921 and 1929, there were no territories of 1967 to impede peace between Jews and Arabs. Indeed, there was no Jewish State to upset anybody. Nevertheless, the same oppressed and repressed Palestinians slaughtered tens of Jews in Jerusalem, Jaffa, Safed and Hebron. Indeed, 67 Jews were slaughtered one day in Hebron in 1929.
Dear world, why did the Arabs - the Palestinians - massacre 67 Jews in one day in 1929? Could it have been their anger over Israeli aggression in 1967? And why were 510 Jewish men, women and children slaughtered in Arab riots between 1936-39? Was it because Arabs were upset over 1967?
And when you, dear world, proposed a UN Partition Plan in 1947 that would have created a "Palestinian State" alongside a tiny Israel and the Arabs cried "no" and went to war and killed 6,000 Jews - was that "upset" caused by the aggression of 1967? And, by the way, dear world, why did we not hear your cry of "upset" then?
The poor Palestinians who today kill Jews with explosives and firebombs and stones are part of the same people who when they had all the territories they now demand be given to them for their state -attempted to drive the Jewish state into the sea. The same twisted faces, the same hate, the same cry of "itbach-al-yahud" (Massacre the Jew!) that we hear and see today, were seen and heard then. The same people, the same dream - destroy Israel. What they failed to do yesterday, they dream of today, but we should not "repress" them.
Dear world, you stood by during the holocaust and you stood by in 1948 as seven states launched a war that the Arab League proudly compared to the Mongol massacres.
You stood by in 1967 as Nasser, wildly cheered by wild mobs in every Arab capital in the world, vowed to drive the Jews into the sea. And you would stand by tomorrow if Israel were facing extinction. And since we know that the Arabs-Palestinians dream daily of that extinction, we will do everything possible to remain alive in our own land. If that bothers you, dear world, well think of how many times in the past you bothered us.
In any event, dear world, if you are bothered by us, here is one Jew in Israel who could not care less.

Subject: Rabbi Kahane's Letter to the World
This letter should be required reading for history and social science students. As much as I have feared for and prayed over the threats to America, from within and without, these threats do not even begin to compare to the continuous and multiple direct physical threats faced by Israel. I cannot help but believe that it is not luck, or accident, or fate, or human planning, or strategy, or allies, or weapons, or technology, or anything and everything worldly, alone or in combination, that keeps Israel alive. I pray that more and more in America and in Israel will turn their faces back toward the Lord and make atonement for those who do not.

As time progresses the words of Rabbi Meir Kahane become more relevant. It appears that Jew hatred results from the continued, Phoenix-like existence of the Jewish nation. Long may the Jewish Phoenix continue to exist, although this time without the need for destructive holocausts.

Rabbi Kahane was right 25 years ago and he is at least as right today. Some people hated him then, and some do now, but that is only because the truth is difficult to accept!

Obviously anti Semitism needs to be illegal and enforced immediately by Jews and gentiles worldwide. Murder is not free speech and a debatable issue at all. Condolences to me for those of you who are reading this because I am probably dead due to baseless anti-Semitism.

Only God can make law applicable to all men everywhere. Mere mortals may only make and enforce civil law in their own territorial jurisdictions, which is why some territories are more attractive to decent men than others. If and when any worldly authority is established over the whole world, an evil man or group will somehow gain dominance over it. That is the nature of the world.
Note well that Jesus Christ, Whom all true Christians regard as the Second Person of the Holy Trinity, which is to say, God Personified, lived His exemplary earthly life as a Semitic Jew. We are all called to do our best with what we’ve got to work with.
Hang in there, Ivan; you are never alone. Please God and live forever.

Ivan is right. If a world law means the world must be taken over, then the world must be taken over, and then it must be defended. The Arabs will never be satisfied with any other situation other than the end of the Jews. The only way to prevent that other than killing all the Arabs is to rule them.

I disagree, and not only because of the impossibility of the task. There is no perfect solution to the problem. The best approach to amelioration of the problem is to recognize the enemy who has declared war on us, know that it is a true war, and engage in war with them just as they engage in war on us. The enemy who has declared war on Judaism, Christianity, Democracy, Representative Government, Free Commerce, Liberty, Israel and America comes in two flavors:
These two false and evil ideologies have set themselves the task of killing us all or enslaving us all. Both are intent on world domination. Our strategic problem is that ideas are not nations, they have no borders, the soldiers wear no uniforms and they are sneaky, underhanded, treacherous ideologues who hold out the hand of friendship until they can gain some advantage, and then they attack you.
It is the ideas themselves that must be openly and publicly attacked everywhere. Nations dominated by Marxism or by Islam must be treated as hostile to all that we hold dear, which means, treated as enemy states in time of war. Practitioners of Marxism and Islam must be treated as social pariahs and denied immigration, travel and citizenship in decent lands. Priests, ministers and rabbis need to point out the errors and the immoralities of Marxism and Islam. Politicians, philosophers and pundits need to highlight the gross logical errors and fatal flaws in Marxism and Islam.
Unfortunately, none of this is going to happen under the regime of Comrade Barrack Hussein Obama, peace be upon him.

Rabbi Kahane's has the right to pronounce the truth. Therefore first of all we should openly , and I hope you except this one from me, admit to you that the shame should be on our faces (like Daniel ,from Tenach, had) with reference to our history in name of Christianity. Also please know, Rabbi Meir Kahane, that there are true believers, who will not abandon you, who pray for you, stand behind you ,even cry about what has happened over the years en even now all these awful issues and lies you people have to deal with. There are people who really love you , my Jewish brothers and sisters, because of the love of Yeshua Mashiach in their hearts. These are the people who even stands behind your army. Not only there are watchmen on your walls of Yerushalayim also watchmen in their own countries, and plead in their prayers to Adonai for your people, our brothers and sisters.
Further, let us put our trust in Adonai, like Jeremia said; that the grace of Adonai is not exhausted, that His compassion has not ended.
They are new every morning!
How great Your faithfulness!
"Adonai is all I have," I say; therefore I will put my hope in Him.
Adonai is good to those waiting for Him, to those who are seeking Him out.

This is all false and untrue Zionist right-wing propaganda. Kahane was a racist and a violent man in a racist, violent right-wing Party, who lived by the sword and who died by the sword. He reaped what he sowed. This whole site is opposed to equality and justice, and seeks to aid domination of the world by Jews and the ultra-bourgeoisie, through increasingly unrestrained Capitalist multi-national imperialism. All of this open, unconstitutional opposition to particular religions and to particular politics, so long as they lean Left, is a carefully crafted smoke screen behind which the right wing perpetrators work to oppose social justice and equality among men. As for “Israel”, there will never be peace over there until the land stolen from the Palestinians is returned to them; even then, America still bears the guilt of having exploited and pillaged the resources of that region of the world. WAKE UP AMERICA!

A man who defends himself, or his family, or his kin, or his nation, or his race, even by use of violence when necessary, may not properly be called a man of violence. Violence was thrust upon him from outside. I am guessing that you might be a holocaust denier; nevertheless, history is hard to kill, even for Lefties.
You are not the first to confuse Right and Left politics of Marxists with Right and Left politics in America. Let me again try to set the record straight regarding that.
Important figures in world politics during the rise of Nazi-Fascism and the rise of Communism were all Marxists, and said so. Such personages as Lenin, Stalin, Hitler and Mussolini all were born, politically speaking, of Marxism.
The name of Hitler’s political Party was the National Socialist Worker’s Party. The only economic difference between the Nazi-Fascist brand of Marxism and the Bolshevik-Communist brand of Marxism was that the former totally controlled the owners of Capital, and the later simply nationalized all Capital. In both variants, the people were ruled by one absolute totalitarian dictator.
The only socio-political difference between the Nazi-Fascist brand of Marxism and the Bolshevik-Communist brand of Marxism was that the former was a nationalist movement that sought world control by a superior nation and race, and the later was an internationalist movement that falsely claimed to seek the end of all sovereign nations as well as the end of all private property to achieve a perfect utopia.
Nazi-Fascism and Bolshevik-Communism represent the major Right – Left argument within Marxism itself. Both despise Capitalism, private property and human liberty, and thus both see America and any entity remotely similar to America as the ultimate mortal enemy of Marxism. Within the confines of Marxist thought, American Constitutionalism is neither Right nor Left – it is simply the system that must be destroyed so that Marxism may advance. On that single point, the Left and the Right within Marxism profoundly agree.
In America, politically speaking, the Left is represented by any and all forms and varieties of Marxism, whether Nazi-Fascist or Communist-Socialist; and the Right, in America, is represented by strict and strong adherence to and defense of the American Declaration of Independence and the American Constitution. Everything Marx wrote, from Das Kapital to the Communist Manifesto, opposes the American Constitution.
Regarding our supposedly “unconstitutional opposition to particular religions and to particular politics, so long as they lean Left”, let me say this: We do not oppose Islam as a religion, but as a theocracy that seeks our destruction or subjugation as a nation, and the destruction or subjugation of all nations. We oppose Marxism for exactly the same reason – it is an ideology that seeks our destruction or subjugation as a nation, and the destruction or subjugation of all nations.
Regarding “increasingly unrestrained Capitalist multi-national imperialism” – I could question the use of the word imperialism here, but the larger question is how and why we should seek to restrain it, beyond naturally existing legal restrictions against crime and fraud. I know of no business, multi-national or not, that seeks to rule any land.
If by social justice you mean “equality” to be achieved by redistribution – which is to say, one of Marxism’s smoke-screen recruitment aids – this site is opposed to it, as it is opposed to any other object of practical impossibility.
No land was stolen from any Palestinians. Land was given to them. And I am left wondering what the resources might be that we Americans “exploited and pillaged” from that area of the world. Flies, maybe? Dirt? Camel dung? What, exactly, did we take from there, and how exactly did we prosper by the taking of it?

What a beautiful letter and certainly one I agree with 100 %. In light of the seemingly growing anti-Israel sentiment throughout America and other places, please permit me to share something I wrote a few days back in response to this letter as it's appropriate and a perfect fit. With kindest regards, Annie Hamilton.
Israel is a topic that seems to garner strong responses whether it’s at the dinner table, online or listening to the President’s latest (attempt) at speaking.
America’s kids are routinely taught in left-leaning schools that much of the conflict is due to Israel’s refusal to ‘share land’ and as such the ‘freedom fighting Hezbollah, Hamas and others are simply trying to make room for their Arab brothers and sisters.’
Some take it further, drawing parallels between the Gaza strip and the troubles in Northern Ireland, comparing Palestinian ‘warriors’ and the IRA.
Nothing could be farther than the truth.
This malignant information continues to spread throughout our communities, hurting families, poisoning American minds and threatening safety and at what cost? Ultimately who is accountable for the things that are said and for such actions?
* Gwyneth Paltrow raising money for HAMAS/Coldplay endorsing HAMAS’ Palestinian Jihad against Israel (what do people think that means?)
Will people stop seeing her movies?
Will they stop supporting Coldplay? (I will because I refuse to fund terror but how many others will?)
Read more …
*Jill, a fabulous clothing store, fabrics, fashions and selections are to die for – apparently quite literally. I’ve single handedly supplied my wardrobe from this brand for the past decade…until learning, recently, that they too, are a front, for terror.
*The companies, celebrities, brands are seemingly everywhere.
Is the hate for Israel … growing or is the successful building of stealth jihad growing at a pace that you have to be paying attention to notice because so many Americans are still asleep with their heads in the sand? Which is it? Growing evil or does it matter? I think it does.
Israel Apartheid Week is an annual international series of events held in cities and campuses throughout the world.
The goal, per their own recruiting materials is to educate people about the ‘nature of Israel’ as an apartheid system as well as to build Boycott, Divestment, and Sanctions campaigns as part of a growing global movement.
Last year, Israel Apartheid Week took place in more than 40 cities.
This is strange, as the people behind the leadership of these events claim to want peace.
Even more peculiar is the fact that Israel is, in fact, the only state in the Middle East that is NOT an apartheid state. Israelis have (very successfully) created the first multicultural society in the Middle East, the only one that exists where the rights of all are honored and respected.
It’s the only state where Moslems may live peaceably amongst their neighbors, even if they’re female or gay.
They may vote, own real estate, own businesses, work, go to school, have families, live freely and happily without fear or ridicule. It’s a wonderful system that their neighbors across the strip do not enjoy.
The argument regarding Israeli occupation is deeply flawed and enemies have been attacking them since the beginning of the 20th century.
Rather than egg them on with fundraisers and praise however, the US should be cutting off enemy funding and bringing them to justice. Naturally, this isn’t happening. It’s sickening.
Israel’s right to exist, to occupy their land is a right that is entrenched in historic relevance.
Israel existed right up until the time of the Roman Empire. When the Romans conquered the land, Jews were permitted to live there.
There are two periods where they were effectively forced from their property, the first time in 70 A.D. and the other sometime around 135 A.D.
There’s always been a Jewish presence in Israel and for hundreds of years; the Middle East was easily the most peaceful part of the World.
Some have forgotten that Rahm Emanuel arranged meetings between Yitzhak Rabin and Yasir Arafat back in the early nineties and during this exchange, Jewish leaders expressed the need to create a Palestinian government to remove the rapidly expanding Palestinian population away from Israeli hands.
The pressing concern of ‘the day’ was Israel’s inevitable destruction and as such the situation must be handled immediately to manage any potential hostile presence in the region.
This seemed agreeable to Israel although certainly not smooth. (A peace agreement including both sides of the Gaza along with the United States of America)
Obviously following incidents in the late nineties as well as September 11th, Israel has remained steadfast in reliability with America struggling to define and contain threats, global and domestic pertaining to hostile enemies from within the Palestinian and other Islam-based territories.
Now we’re under a different Administration that once included Emmanuel, and things have never been worse.
We have a Moslem President who bluffed his way into the oval office and since then has appointed several fellow Moslems, radical Marxists, Socialists or other unsavory characters that have effectively dismantled our founding papers since 2008.
It’s disheartening that those who marched against Vietnam now sit in Washington DC offices, enacting policies, on our dime.
Our President recently arrogantly asked PM Netanyahu to ‘roll back’ their borders to 1967. It’s a good thing Bibi is a classy gentleman.
I would have told him (using expletives, of course) “I’ll roll my borders back to 1967 just as soon as you roll yours back to August 20th, 1959 so that Hawaii is no longer a state and you are no longer a citizen”
This Administration continues to lie to the American people and ridicules our allies while bowing to Islamist leaders, something never done in the history of America, turning the United States Presidency into a mockery, something to be laughed at, no longer respected.
Liberals and their universalism demands that Israel make concessions to appease Arabs but this rarely satisfies anyone and the truth is that there is plenty of room for Arabs in other areas and they refused the offer for a separate Palestinian state in 1937, 1939, 1947, 1979, 1993, and 2000.
This Administration’s betrayal of Israel is both shocking and disheartening and exposes the range of evil and/naïve thinking in the people in today’s government and media who seem to not understand (or care) what is truly at stake right now.
This direction should disturb us all.

“Basically National Socialism and Marxism are the same.” - Adolph Hitler, 1941. (The Road To Serfdom, F. A. Hayek, Chapter II, page 30. Refers to a public speech in February 1941, recorded in the Bulletin of International News, published by the Royal Institute of International Affairs, XVIII, No. 5, 269.) See the Marxism page.
The Nazis were slightly smarter than the Communists, in that they saw the utter impossibility of the Ultimate Communist Utopian Dream. In Hitler’s variant of a New World Order, what he promoted was what he called The Third Position, representing a state-controlled economy that was neither Communist nor Capitalist. Nazism supported private property and a market economy up to a point – the market and the owners of property were subject to subordination to the state and the goals of the state.
Joseph Goebbels described this as a synthesis of Nationalism and Socialism, as the preferred counter to the “mistaken” Internationalism of the Bolshevik- Communist brand of Marxism.
Thus the “Right” and “Left” wings of Marxism came to be, and to hate each other, while being united in opposition to Capitalism and the liberty of man. Both were evil, and both sought to fool the masses, to mesmerize them, propagandize them and mal-educate them into masses of useful idiot followers of a ridiculous dream, and thus centralize all power in one man. Both opposed religion and the morality that flows from religion, and to gain absolute, unquestioning allegiance from citizens, and absolute power over them all.

You cannot deny the fact that Krupp, Mercedes-Benz, almost all heavy industry and the major German financial institutions prospered enormously in Nazi Germany. How can you attribute that to any form of anti-Capitalism?

From: Vic Biorseth
Krupp, Mercedes-Benz, almost all heavy industry and the major German financial institutions were all in bed with Hitler, who kept them all on a very tight leash and controlled them. Whether they were in bed with Hitler willingly or not, I cannot tell, but Hitler told them what to produce, in what quantities, in what quality, and he supplied the slave labor for them to use to fulfill his orders. This is almost exactly the same arrangement we see today between Comrade Obama and GM, Chrysler, almost all heavy industry and the major American financial institutions, although he hasn’t succeeded in gathering and supplying slave labor yet. Unions will probably supply the slave drivers.

I find it reprehensible that Rabbi Kahane should be murdered in cold blood, in plain sight of everyone and yet his killer was allowed to walk free to commit yet other atrocities which would become the entree to the 9/11 day of terror. When does the world wake up and realize that we are all not peace loving, G-d fearing members of the human race? When does anyone realize that, according to many world countries, Israel as a state, has the right to exist only as a figment of someone's imagination. It's time to wake up and smell the coffee. Rabbi Kahane, obm, was right and continues to be right. Like it or not, that is the reality. There is no peace with people that want your blood, land, children and future decimated beyond recognition, no matter what country they claim to be from.

An earlier phase of this major conversion corrupted or adversely affected some fonts, alignments, quotes and tables in the previously published webpages. Not to worry; this phase is converting them all, one by one. Eventually, every webpage on this site will have the same look and feel as this one.
LOVE this new release!

I stumbled across this piece at a time where its relevance is enhanced by the current terror attacks on the Israeli population by Palestinian Terrorists in Gaza. So true are Kahane's words, so clear his thoughts, he was a wise man whose revelations shocked a world that was not ready to receive them. He lived a life of love for his God and his People and died by the vile hands of evil men.
Do these thoughts not ring true to any believers on this site?

Your submission was such a glaringly obvious repetition of false Palestinian propaganda that I decided not to publish it at all and just put it in the reject file. But then I dreamed about it last night; and decided to publish it, and to respond to it.
So the two names our Lord gave to Satan were Liar, and Murderer.
Palestinian, thy name is Disciple of Satan. There is no truth in you. Your words are all lies, and your hands are dripping with innocent blood. You do not seek peace, you have never sought peace and you will never allow peace.You are encouraged because the current American President, the American Democrat Party, the American SLIMC1 and the American education system are all just as anti-Semitic, anti-Israel, anti-Christian, anti-American Constitution and Marxist - Redistributionist as you are.

The Jewish people lost a most wonderful clever man when Rabbi Meir Kahane was murdered. The most shocking thing was that the Israeli government would not listen to him while he lived. Every word he wrote in that letter was the truth if only he were here today. We so badly need another man like him but from where? And will he be listened to should he appear? We do not preach propaganda like our enemies maybe we should, but we do not want to go against the laws of the G-D of Israel. Thank you for that amazing letter Rabbi Kahane when I need to learn something i turn to it.
May you rest in peace where anti-Semitism does not exist in the arms of HaShem. Shalom dear friend of the Jewish people and Israel.

The world should answer just one question: if Jews have a right to live. If you feel that they do - let them live. Do not impose on them restrictions that you do not impose on others. Play fairly, can you? 22 Arab countries, 49 Muslim majority countries against one Israel. Is it fair?

I did not read the entire blog. I read until I came to someone spewing the same old hatred of the Jew. This time I really became aware as to how bloated, distorted and emotionally spewed his argument was. I never thought of anti-Semitism that way. In contrast, R' Meir,u'h actually spoke of facts albeit with some bitter humor.
May Hashem avenge his memory. And I'd like to see anyone, try, just try to engage with me over any kind of right-wing activist hatred that this above statement of G-d's vengeance engenders or might engender. go ahead! knock yourselves out.

From the viewpoint of another Jew. There are a lot of problems with his arguments. The Palestinians were fighting against the Jews in the 20s because the Jews were there with the expressed purpose to take their country and land. The Palestinians have stated from the start that the Jews could live there with them together, but that wasn't the plan; it was, and is, to take the land off them. That's the basic issue. The question is, is it required? Is it needed - for Jews to have their own state? According to Kahane, yes as he makes clear, due to anti-semitism. The basic tenet of Zionism. I don't agree.
Following our traditions and morals is what is needed. At its basic, most important level, Torah teaches us to love thy neighbour. We have three principles that are required of us - to love God, to be kind to others, and to be humble. Anything that goes against that we should reject - including other teachings in the Torah. If we follow these principles, we will be fine - much more important than going to Synagogue on Shabbos. The state of Israel is fundamentally in opposition to these things. If it wasn't, fine - I'd be all for it. But it is, and there's no other way along that path.
However, there is another way. To give up control over the land and work together with the Palestinians to create a beautiful place together in harmony with the other religious people in that land - a shining example of how to co-exist in peace together for the world to admire and come to see. That's what we should be building and that is what is needed at this time, and in all time. And the Palestinians agree to it. In freeing them, we free ourselves and enter what is our true path - not Zionism, but Judaism, a Judaism of love thy neighbour.

I am not a Jew, I am a Catholic. But If I were a Jew and not a Catholic, I would follow the whole Torah, not just parts of it. Torah represents objective reality, and individual opinions of men represent subjective whimsy, in comparison. To be a part of "The Jewish People", to me, would be to embrace the external truths that make Jews Jews. All of them. Otherwise, if every Jew just followed his own entirely subjective personal opinions, "The Jewish People" would just be an undistinguished and indistinguishable bunch of individuals scattered among the larger crowd. The Ten Commandments, after all, are not the Ten Suggestions.
You say the Jews were there to "take" the land. But Jews have always been there, throughout history. I would reword your expression to say that Jews of the diaspora were drawn there to join others and become one with the land. If Jewry was and is to stand and defend itself against an unreasonably hostile world, what better place to do it from than from the land given to them by God?
The Palestinians will not be lived with in peace, not only by the Jews, but by anyone. They have caused conflict, trouble and death everywhere they have gone in the world, and they have become a people grounded on hate of the Jews, hate of Israel and hate of America. Implacable hatred. Coupled with pledges and sworn oaths to eradicate Israel and kill the Jews. They live to hate.
In my opinion, until that somehow changes, and I don't see it changing, an honest and lasting Israeli-Palistinian peace settlement is impossible. There will never be peace in Israel until the Palestinians are either driven off the land entirely, or, converted out of their insane and implacable hatred.
If the Jews hand over governmental authority to the Palestinians, the next thing that will happen is the Palestinians will kill all the Jews.

I do not speak only for myself but in the words of our great prophets Micah (6:8) what does the Lord require of you? To do justice walk humbly and love thy God. That's basically it. If we do that, we will be fine.
It's up to you if you think Torah is objective truth.
The Palestinians don't hate Jews. I have many friends who are Palestinian. They are a wonderful people. And we are very compatible to live together.

Objective Truth is not up to me or to you, but to God. Objective Truth simply is. It is reality. What you or I think is subjective, not objective. The Torah is the Word Of God, given to His people and to the larger world, to be taken in, believed and followed, or, to be rejected. By our choice.
If their leaders and their government speaks for them, then the Palestinians do indeed hate the Jews. The PLO and Hamas have said so. They have pledged death to Israel. If these terrorist organizations are not truly representative of the Palestinian people, then why do the Palestinian people follow them and allow them to govern over them? Do they not have minds of their own? Are they not independent thinkers?
Just as Islam, at its root, is an evil and murderous ideology, the Palestinian people, at their root, are an evil and murderous people. Who else on earth hides weapons and rockets and warriors among their own civilian population and in hospitals. Who else on earth brings babies and sick and elderly to the front of their planned and orchestrated violent attacks on Israelis so that they can be killed, and their deaths may be used as propaganda against Israel?
Who else, besides America's Marxocrat Party, has learned to use the Marxified, corrupted and wholly anti-Semitic and anti-American American News Media to highlight the deaths of these "innocent" victims of Israeli "cruelty" in their daily propaganda?
I don't believe you on this point. If your Palestinian friends are not playing you for a fool, and they really are civilized and friendly, then why do they put up with their own leadership? No decent people would allow all that evil to go on, in their name.

If you agree that the 10 commandments should be upheld, then I can’t see how you could go along with Kahane or with the Zionist project of oppression of the Palestinian people. Murder, theft, lies are all forbidden.

The only "project" of murder theft and lies visible to me is coming out of Islam, not out of Judaism. Once a distinct people have declared and commenced open war against another distinct people, as the Palestinians have done against Israel, any defensive stratagems or tactics applied against them may not be termed murder, theft or lies. The more proper term is war. Israel can either defend herself, or, be nice to her determined attacking mortal enemies, stop being a distinct people and just roll over and die.
What we are seeing in the Israeli-Palestinian conflict is a mirror-image of the conflict going on in America between Constitutional Representative government, and, Marxocratism, represented by the Marxocrat Party, Academia and the News Media. Marxocratism is at war with Constitutional America, and Constitutional America is just being nice, inclusive and accommodating to her own mortal enemies.
At least it was until the election of President Trump.
Trump took the gloves off. That's what Israel ought to do.

It’s the Jews who came to Palestine to take over and cleanse the land of its inhabitants. That’s a declaration of war. Your man above openly wants to complete the cleansing. The big lie of Zionism was ‘a land without people for a people without land’. The big lies of Kahane are to overstate the threat against our people to justify his insanity of massacre of the ‘rubbish’. I hope our people wake up from the fantasy that clouds their thinking and relinquish support for the Jewish State and begin working towards a better future for us, the Palestinians, the Middle East, and the whole world which is caught in the nightmare by embracing a shared future of equality and prosperity for all who live in the Holy Land.

Your Palestinian terrorist talking points are well learned.
So they came to "take over and cleanse the land of its inhabitants". That's a flagrant lie. The very minute the nation of Israel was born Islam attacked it. There never was any such thing as any nation of Palestine, and only the "act of war" was the multi-nation Islamic attack on the new state of Israel, which was attacked even before it took its first breath of nationhood.
Having lost in every attempt to destroy Israel the defeated foreign Moslems retreated back behind their own borders. The murderous Moslems who were the ones indigenous to the area refused to accept the state of Israel or the presence of Jews there as well as in the world, and they have been inciting terror and causing trouble all over the world ever since. They have been kicked out of every nation that ever allowed them in because they are nothing but trouble. They will not accept the world's rules of nations with borders. They expect and demand the ability to rule wherever they are. And that just ain't gonna happen.
Face the fact. Israel is Israel, now, after multiple wars, for the same reason that America is America, England is England and every other nation is what it is. Israel is Israel by right of conquest.
If you don't like it, you're gonna have to lump it, because that's the way it is. The Palestinians, more than anyone else, made Israel what she is. It was every attempt to destroy her that made her strong.

It's not a lie - it's history - plan Dalet. It's also logic since a Jewish state, as Kahane correctly points out, can't exist as an ethnic minority inside a non-Jewish majority. The lie was 'an empty land' put forward by the Zionists. The demographic situation will one day require a Kahane style plan in order to maintain the Jewish state. And I oppose it.
Israel has yet to declare its borders. If you go by Kahane, as you do, they are much bigger than the 'river to the sea' - these people like the idea of a return of the Kingdom of David type of thing.
You lot are just using us to drive a wedge in the Islamic world as part of your war with Islam for dominance in the world. That's the sad thing about religion - it's used by nasty people for power. I guess that's humanity and history.

David:It is indeed a lie, and you are a typical manipulated PEJTML22 , whether consciously or with knowing evil purpose. It is only Islam and Marxism, and perhaps plutocrat wannabes, who seek dominance over the world. America and Israel do no such thing. They seek national security, which means, the acceptance of sovereign nations with borders. The opposite of worldly globalism.

You clearly don't know much about the history of what you are commenting on. That makes your arguments weak. You should read some more.
It is my view that Kahane was right - the state of Israel cannot exist unless massive ethnic cleansing takes place again. The liberal version of Zionism is just feel good propaganda to garner support from the Jewish diaspora and the world in general. However, it is false. The question will be whether the Jewish diaspora will go along with the Zionist project when it is understood that the Kahane version is what it requires. I tend to think it won't and neither will the world. That is, promoting Kahane only helps to bring about the downfall of him and the ZIonist project at large. This is because our religion, contrary to antisemitic mythology, is a peace loving religion - love thy neighbour, Tikkun Olam, these are the central teachings. The real orthodox Jews reject Kahane and Zionism as well. Our people are peace loving and will not go along with it. We are not fascists. That's my view - I could be wrong and there is evidence that suggests I may be wrong - as it has gone along with everything so far - but only under the guise of 'the most moral army in the world'. When that is taken away, we'll see.
So, by promoting Kahane, you hasten the downfall of the project. I don't think you really know what you are doing.

Well, we agree on something. Except that our positions are reversed.
The only real difference is in your use of the pejorative term "ethnic cleansing". In popular usage today ethnic cleansing brings to mind Genocide and more specifically, the Holocaust. The sort of thing that Marxism (especially National Socialism) has done and amply demonstrated it will do, and the sort of thing that the religion of Islam has done and is sworn to do to all unbelievers. And you believe that that is what Rabbi Meir Kahane intended to do to "Palestinians" in Israel.
But Kahane intended no such thing. He even proposed paying the equivalent of $40,000 to every Palestinian in exchange for leaving Israel. He looked for all sorts of incentives to get them to leave before kicking them out, including especially denying them the vote. Why should those domestic enemies who seek your national destruction be allowed to vote, let alone be any part of the government?
You think "the project" will fail because if Israel commits acts typical of Marxists and Moslems the world will turn against Israel, and that's right. But Israel is never going to do that. That's what the bad guys do. What Kahane proposed was no different than what we have proposed here, in Banishment, and in The Case For Banishment.
If people operating within a nation's borders seek to eliminate those borders, and seek to bring about the destruction of the nation, why on earth would any citizen of that nation not want them out?
Israel will eventually cease to exist if she allows sworn, implacable mortal enemies of Israel to
Them's the facts David. America faces the same problem.
Ugly facts are still facts. It is a time for dividing.

Yes, we agree that he was right about the situation but disagree as to what to do about it. As is obvious, I desire an end to the Jewish state to be replaced by a secular state for all. The Jewish state is a monster that will continue to devour our soul. Kahane diagnosed it well. He used fear to feed the monster - which is appropriate because that's what it is based upon, as all monsters are. We, the Jewish people, need to overcome that fear and open our hearts to the deeper teaching in our tradition - love thy neighbour. By doing that, we have nothing to fear.
I'll end on that. There's no need to keep this going.

The French Revolution produced the first Secular State, which produced the first program of State Terrorism, which prepared the ground for atheistic Marxism.
Look at contemporary "secular" America. America was Christian until the unconstitutional and illegal court action that "legislated" into being the "Constitutional Principle" of Separation of Church and State. Now, America is a nation with court-protected immorality. The immoral now increasingly blacklist and censor and legally rule over the moral. What's worse, anti-Constitutionalists are in the Constitutional government, taking it apart, while Marxocratism corrupts minds and works to vote Constitutional America out of existence.
To repeat, a distinct identifiable People will either adhere to one external and impervious set of moral rules by which to guide and order their lives, or they will cease to be a distinct identifiable People.
So long as there is evil in the world, you cannot unite with everybody.

Sorry, I wasn't going to comment again, but I decided to make one more comment and also ask you a question. I'm not just being disruptive, but you need to consider the issues you are making big statements on. In any case, it's not clear to me how much of Israeli history you know, maybe you know a lot and it's just being concealed. But this statement is significant:
"You think "the project" will fail because if Israel commits acts typical of Marxists and Moslems the world will turn against Israel, and that's right. But Israel is never going to do that. That's what the bad guys do."
Certainly Israel committed horrendous acts from 47-49, although this was not the start of these things as it really began in earnest in the 30s - including large scale massacres and the use of rape to instigate the fleeing of the Palestinians - If you want to call them something else, that's up to you - when 3/4 of the population fled - up to a million people. To me, that's pretty horrendous stuff, but hey that's what happens in war. It was all planned too. There's pretty much no chance that Kahane's idea of paying them to leave would work, or that they would accept living under occupied rule for ever. So, it leaves only 'forced removal'. Given that this was done through massacre and rape in the 40s (to instil enough fear in the remaining population to get the to run), I see no reason to believe that there's another way to do it. There are about 6 million Arabs living within the lands that Israel would claim - river to sea.
So, the question is, how do you see Israel achieving the Kahane plan - which we both agree is a must for its long term survival - in a 'nice' way, done by the good guys?

I've heard all the anti-Israel propaganda I care to hear. Whether your claims about what terrorists did on either side of the conflict circa 1947 are true or not, that was then, and this is now. Nothing can be done about it. Rare is the nation that was not born in blood.
Bottom line, whatever happened then cannot be changed now. Living in the past for the past is not the path to mental stability. American blacks have been trained, like a circus dog act, to dwell on, grieve over and never forget an era of American history they never even experienced. There's nothing that can be done about history, yet they obsess over it and are fixated on it to the point of not being able to live normal peaceful lives.
This was done to them on purpose.
That sort of thing appears to be your personal affliction.
I see Israel eventually achieving internal peace the same way I see America achieving internal peace - by implementing the legal punishment of Banishment to get those who perpetually oppose internal peace out of the nation. We have made the case for banishment in America. The same principles apply to any nation with a distinct national character that wants to keep that national character, and not give in to the deceptive globalist Suicidal Diversity program.
Everyone on earth is not your neighbor. (Luke 10:31-37)
Never be lukewarm.
Life itself demands passion.
He who is indifferent to God has already forfeited his soul.
He who is indifferent to politics has already forfeited his liberty.
In America, religion is not mere window dressing and citizenship is not a spectator sport.
Do not allow our common destiny as a whole people to just happen without your input.
Seek the Truth; find the Way; live the Life; please God, and live forever.
