Rabbi Kahane ZT"L HY"D ( founder of Jewish Defense League and Kach ) adhered to the belief that there is no such thing as a Palestinian people; that in fact the people who call themselves Palestinian are a mixture of disparate and unrelated Arab clans with no claim to ethnic identity, and that all native Palestinian Arabs seek the destruction of all Israelis. Thus Kahane proposed the forcible deportation of all Arabs from all lands controlled by the Israeli government. In his view, evicting all Palestinians , was the only acceptable solution to the Israeli-Palestinian conflict which we can now accept as axiomatic.

As a teenager he became an admirer of Zeev Jabotinsky, a frequent guest in Kahane's home. He personally led protests against Ernest Bevin who opposed the foundation of Israel on the grounds that Britain should side with the Arab Muslims aspirations for an independent state. Kahane also organized and launched public demonstrations in the US against the Soviet Union's policy of persecuting Zionist activists and curbing Jewish emigration to Israel. He was a central activist in the "Free Soviet (Russian) Jewry" movement and is widely credited with the release of the Russian refuseniks to Israel.


While concluding a speech in New York, Kahane was murdered by El Sayyid Nosair, a member of an terrorist cell operating in New York . According to prosecutors, a man named Wadih el Hage purchased the .38 caliber gun used by Nosair. El-Hage was told by a man named Mahmud Abouhalima to buy the gun. Nosair was acquitted of murder because no witness actually saw him pull the trigger, but he was convicted of gun charges.

    Amshi,

    I know your motto of not having anything nice to say but that's all you could say about Meir kahane?

    The man was concerned only with the future of the people and the land of Israel. The left wing politicians and press preverted his views so that he looked a monster and sabotaged his efforts and he kept trucking.

    If he were alive today he might not have been able to stop any of the nonsense but would at the very least not allow for this comatose response that we have been offering.

    הַתִּקְוָה



    1

    כָּל עוֹד בַּלֵּבָב פְּנִימָה

    נֶפֶשׁ יְהוּדִי הוֹמִיָּה,

    וּלְפַאֲתֵי מִזְרָח קָדִימָה,

    עַיִן לְצִיּוֹן צוֹפִיָּה.

    עוֹד לֹא אָבְדָה תִקְוָתֵנוּ

    הַתִּקְוָה הַנּוֹשָׁנָה:

    לָשׁוּב לְאֶרֶץ אֲבוֹתֵינוּ,

    לְעִיר בָּהּ דָּוִד חָנָה.



    2

    כָּל-עוֹד דְּמָעוֹת מֵעֵינֵינוּ

    יִזְּלוּ כְגֶשֶׁם נְדָבוֹת,

    וּרְבָבוֹת מִבְּנֵי עַמֵּנוּ

    עוֹד הוֹלְכִים עַל קִבְרֵי אָבוֹת.

    עוד לא אבדה...



    3

    כָּל-עוֹד חוֹמַת מַחֲמַדֵּינוּ

    לְעֵינֵינוּ מוֹפָעַת,

    וְעַל חֻרְבַּן מִקְדָּשֵׁנוּ

    עַיִן אַחַת עוֹד דוֹמָעַת.

    עוד לא אבדה...



    4

    כָּל-עוֹד מֵי הַיַּרְדֵּן בְּגָאוֹן

    מְלֹא גְדוֹתָיו יִזֹּלוּ,

    וּלְיָם כִּנֶּרֶת בְּשָׁאוֹן

    בְּקוֹל הֲמוּלָה יִפֹּלוּ.

    עוד לא אבדה...



    5

    כָּל-עוֹד שָׁם עֲלֵי דְרָכַיִם

    שַעַר יֻכַּת שְׁאִיָּה,

    וּבֵין חָרְבוֹת יְרוּשָׁלַיִם

    עוֹד בּת צִיּוֹן בּוֹכִיָּה.

    עוד לא אבדה...



    6

    כָּל-עוֹד דְּמָעוֹת טְהוֹרוֹת

    מֵעֵין בַּת עַמִּי נוֹזְלוֹת,

    וְלִבְכּוֹת לְצִיּוֹן בְּרֹאשׁ אַשְׁמוֹרוֹת

    עוֹד תָּקוּם בַּחֲצִי הַלֵּילוֹת.

    עוד לא אבדה...



    7

    כָּל-עוֹד נִטְפֵי דָם בְּעוֹרְקֵינוּ

    רָצוֹא וָשׁוֹב יִזֹּלוּ,

    וַעֲלֵי קִבְרוֹת אֲבוֹתֵינוּ

    עוֹד אֶגְלֵי טַל יִפֹּלוּ.

    עוד לא אבדה...



    8

    כָּל-עוֹד רֶגֶשׁ אַהֲבַת הַלְּאוֹם

    בְּלֵב הַיְּהוּדִי פּוֹעֵם,

    עוֹד נוּכַל קַוּוֹת גַּם הַיּוֹם

    כִּי עוֹד יְרַחֲמֵנוּ אֵל זוֹעֵם.

    עוד לא אבדה...



    9

    שִׁמְעוּ אַחַי בְּאַרְצוֹת נוּדִי

    אֶת קוֹל אַחַד חוֹזֵינוּ,

    כּי רַק עִם אַחֲרוֹן הַיְּהוּדִי

    גַּם אַחֲרִית תִּקְוָתֵנוּ!

    עוד לא אבדה...



    *

    לֵךְ עַמִּי, לְשָׁלוֹם שׁוּב לְאַרְצֶךָ,

    הַצֱּרִי בְגִלְעָד, בִּירוּשָׁלַיִם רוֹפְאֶךָ,

    רוֹפְאֶךָ יְיָ, חָכְמַת לְבָבוֹ,

    לֵךְ עַמִּי לְשָׁלוֹם, וּרְפוּאָה קְרוֹבָה לָבוֹא
