Well, I received a SECOND letter in the mail from the left wing Bayit Ehad (One Home) people asking me to fill out forms that I would be willing to sell out and leave my home. Bayit Ehad is reported as being pushed by certain left wing knesset members who want to give up our land to the Arabs. They send their letters to Jews living beyond the 'security fence' in Judea & Samaria, not to the Arabs. Apparently they don’t want to even consider a plan for Arab emigration, only the Jews need to be ethnically cleansed from our biblical homeland.
Our forefathers, Abraham, Isaac and Jacob never walked down the streets of Tel Aviv. The city didn’t exist until the last century. However, they did walk the roads in Judea & Samaria. In fact, Bet El could boast a sign saying that “Jacob slept here”. People living in YESHA (Judea & Samaria) are not living in ‘settlements’. We are living in ‘RE-settlements’. We are back here after years of the land being neglected. Once beautiful towns and agricultural fields have turned to weeds and rocky, uninhabital terrain since the Jews were taken out in Exile. But now we have been brought back and have re-established Jewish life where we lived so many years before. Hostile terrain is gone, and new homes have been built. Children are again playing in the streets, laughter and gaiety is heard from their mothers standing and talking to one another. Schools and libraries and general life has returned to where our ancestors once lived and thrived. ...But I digress.
One of the many RE-settlements in Judea & Samaria. Jewish life is back to stay.
Getting back to the letter that I and my neighbors received, we notice that it was sent in a blue and white envelope, making it ‘look’ very patriotic. Ha!
Sorry folks, I just can’t stop laughing.
If you are a resident in Judea and Samaria, and have received this letter full of forms for you to fill out with a note on their stationary trying to convince you they are doing this because they care about YESHA residents and want to enable you to move to what they claim are the true, legal borders of Israel, - don’t throw it in the waste basket. The forms come with a pre-paid postage that they will be charged for, if it is put in the mail. People here are saying to take the forms, (they say you can draw a giant ‘X’ on the forms or you can just write them ‘lo todah’ (no thank you) about them trying to buy you out, and put it in the envelope and send it off to them.
Wouldn’t that be great seeing their offices flooded with envelopes they paid postage for, and in them were X-ed out forms?
I can’t wait to send mine back to them! ... and they were hoping I would sell out.
Libby Kahane, wife of Rabbi Meir Kahane z"l, joined me in the Arutz 7 studio on Tuesday for an indepth interview. She wrote a book (more like an encyclopedia) on the life and teachings of her husband. She documents his history from even before he was born delving into his yichus (family line) where you learn about his father and mother, and his upbringing. She includes over 30 pages of glossy photographs which can often give a person insight into his life, and the times many of us grew up in. These photos speak more than words ever can. You might even find yourself in some of those photos if you were ever at one of his demonstrations.
The book which you all should order, is entitled, "RABBI MEIR KAHANE: His Life and Thought (Volume One: 1932-1975)". The book is over 700 pages and is chock full of stories that will entrance and inspire you. She has already gathered most of her research together for volume II, which will cover the period from 1975 and beyond, but is still looking for people to email her with personal memories and stories about her husband. (See below for email address)
To look at Rabanit Libby Kahane is so un-telling. She looks like most any grandmother, soft, unassuming, and yet a strength and power oozes out of her. She had to be strong, she was married to Rabbi Meir Kahane! She fed the man, physically and spiritually (though she may not like me praising her so). She raised his children, and was the anchor of Jewish life in the home. During the week as he was out saving the Jewish people, trying to shake them awake from their comfortable American stupor life styles, it was she who held the internal fort. They had 4 children together and much of the time she was a de-facto single mother, raising them when her husband was not home or had to sit in jail for his JDL (Jewish Defense League) activities. Though their father was absent, they found comfort from his letters he sent from prison. Photograph from the book:
Rabbi Meir Kahane, Libby Kahane, and one of their sons, Binaymin. Both her husband and son were eventually killed by Arab bullets.
In the interview, she described one of the profound points he hammered home to his family explaining why his children could be proud of their father, even though he was not able to be with them. You’ll have to listen to the interview to hear what he wrote them, and read the book to understand the meaning behind those words.
Libby’s book about her husband lets one peer into what drove Rabbi Kahane to roll up his sleeves and make headlines. It shows us all how we can leave our cushioned world that we built for ourselves and enter the real world unprotected by our neighborhood boundaries and familiar, comfortable daily-life routines. --- It’s all in the decisions we make.
This book shows, that HOW we choose to behave, makes the difference between an average person and one who becomes a mover and shaker. Rav Kahane, even after he became a rabbi, had to supplement his family’s income. Reading the book, Libby tells of the time when he was a sports writer, a taxi driver, and did the mundane things any ‘average’ person would take on to get extra income. He even worked delivering news papers to supplement his family’s income. And yet, not having any more super powers than you or I were born with, he rose above one’s mundane life and changed the course of history, whether it was local anti-Semitism on New York streets, or the plight of soviet Jews, or making aliyah and eventually getting voted into the Knesset and shaking up Israeli politics.
And he did get people’s attention. After starting the JDL and showing the world Jews, not with books and pencils, but with baseball bats ready to pound anti-Semite's heads in, you either loved the man or hated him -as many mainstream Jewish establishments did. He exposed these Jewish federations for their impotence in really helping the Jewish people other than opening community centers and claiming to be the voice of American Jewry (my interpretation). They weren't his only foes. Arabs feared and hated him, and in the interview, you will hear my first words ever spoken to Rabbi Meir Kahane when I met him in 1978, regarding these Arabs.
I asked Rabbanit Libby about losing both her husband and youngest child, Binyamin, to Arab bullets. Her answers were of steel, and you will have to listen to the interview to find out what she said, and wait for Volume II to read about it all in even more detail. (Volume one covers up to 1975.)
I believe that for us, the main thrust of her ten years of documentation and research into this book of Rav Kahane’s life, basically points to this: What legacy will we leave here on Earth when our time comes to meet our maker? We see how, though Rabbi Kahane died over a decade ago, he still lives on today. He predicted so many of the troubles we now face today in the world. You see the acknowledgment of his foresight and wisdom by Israelis today through the graffiti sprawled on walls all over Israel: “Kahane was right”.
FYI, I thought you might enjoy viewing this debate between Rabbi Kahane and Ehud Olmert which took place about 20 years ago. Who would have imagined that one day Ehud Olmert would be Prime Minister?
Getting back to the book, if you want to leave your safe, but doldrum life, without leaving your La-Z-Boy recliner, this book will take you there. It will surely touch you on the inside and make you a better person, Jew or Gentile.
Buy this book. Click HERE (or look for it at your book stores). By next week or so, you should be getting it in the mail. It will be your 'Passover' present to yourself or a loved one. … And if you were ever involved with the JDL or Rabbi Kahane, you just might find yourself in the photos included in the book or in her lengthy index of people she mentions who intersected with Rav Kahane’s life.
p.s. If you have a personal memory, photo, or story to tell about the Rav Kahane Z”L, please write it down and email the Rabbanit Libby Kahane at: MrsLkahan@yahoo.com She just might include it in her next book, Volume II.
The website called LIVE LEAK.com has removed the film FITNA by Dutch film maker Geert Wilders due to threats on the safety of their staff members. The movie shows Islam as a violent and intolerant religion, with graphic footage to support its claims. Clips of sermons inside mosques are shown calling for cutting off the heads of Jews, and jihadic calls for taking over the world. (Those who are upset about Barak Obama's former minister Reverend Wright preaching anti-American rhetoric should be hopping mad after viewing FITNA.) Terror scenes perpetrated on Europeans were also shown with much graphic detail. The movie was also interspersed with verses from the Koran which encourage the killing of Jews and other non-believers of Islam, which is probably YOU, reading this.
Much of the footage in the film was very graphic and bloody, all showing real life events. Photos were shown of Moslem demonstrators holding signs supporting the Islamic take-over of the world and touting another holocaust worse than the one we experienced in WWII. Before the film was released there were already fears that violent demonstrations in the Netherlands, and possibly around the world would take place, reminiscent of the violent demonstrations by Muslims after a disparaging cartoon of Muhammad was published in the Danish newspaper 'Jyllands-Posten' back in 2005. Wikipedia states, "This previous violence resulted in the burning of the Danish embassy in Syria and other acts of violence around the world, including the murder of a Catholic nun and people from several different religions, including Muslims."
If you follow the original link to view the movie FITNA, this is what you will now see:
The Removal of ‘FITNA’
Official LiveLeak Statement
While understanding that these threats are very disturbing and intimidating (as anyone who has gotten a death threat can attest to), where is that invisible line where one decides that standing by their principles and beliefs are just too heavy a price to bear?
Isn’t standing up for one’s beliefs the thing that makes man different than animals? Willing to fight and even die for one’s principles is what makes a man a man.
If the threats received to LIVE LEAK staff were from the Nazis, would people be more enraged and brave enough to take a stand? And if so, would it only be because today they (the Nazis) are too weak to scare people off? In the early 1940's, the Allies stood up against the Nazi threat, and fought for their freedom. But that was another world, another time, when honor and integrity still thrived. Today, we have become soft, lazy, and spoiled. There are few people today like Abraham who would be willing to walk into a pit of fire for their beliefs.
This brings me to one of the most disturbing things of all in this whole episode. It is the fact that the West is cowering and not standing up to these Islamic thugs making the threats. While making my best effort not to judge those who received these death threats, we have to recognize that just a ‘threat’ has already silenced these people. Many Muslims are willing to kill and die for THEIR beliefs. Some Muslim parents are even ready, and do, sacrifice their own children as they go out on suicide (homocide) bomb missions, just to kill non-Muslims. In the meantime, we in the West shake in the knees and are willing to give up our beliefs for the fear of being hurt, attacked, or killed.
If this is the case, if we cower and submit out of fear, and are not willing to stand up and sacrifice for our beliefs, -- and they are, then who will win this religious war that has been thrust upon us?
THERE IS NO DIPLOMATIC SOLUTION. After praying and fasting for three days as in the Purim story, the Jews had to don armament and weapons and go out to defeat the Jew-haters of Shushan and the 127 provinces of King Achashverosh. We had to crush and annihilate these evil people who wanted to kill Jews, from babies to the very old, just because they were Jews. With foes like these, THERE IS NO DIPLOMATIC SOLUTION.
We face today enemies just as vile and ruthless. We saw the Nazis come and defile, maim, and murder. They went on a mission to destory, to slay, and to exterminate all Jews, young and old, children, women, and babies. Today it is Moslem terrorists and Moslem armies.
I am going to post some photos that are EXTREMELY gruesome, so do not scroll down to view them if you have a weak stomach. I believe it is important to post these photos because it is the truth. Sometimes the truth is very ugly, but it is the truth none the less, and we need to face it. The photos you will see below were all perpetrated by Moslem terrorists and Moslem armies. Some photos are of Christians in Serbia that they mauled and killed, others are of Jews in Israel they have mauled and killed. The governments/media of the West who are part of NATO do not want you to see this, nor have I seen these photos printed in the Israeli media. If we, the People, saw these photos, saw the TRUTH of what a real terror scene looked like… If we saw how hard and ruthless our enemies hit us, we would DEMAND retaliation, not ‘havlaga’ – restraint. We would demand an end to these atrocities against our loved ones, not through endless and fruitless peace talks, but through a quick, precise and efficient military response to end once and for all, this enemy onslaught against our people.
With enemies like these: the Nazis, and the Moslem terrorists and armies today, who maim, maraud, kill and mutilate without conscience… THERE IS NO DIPLOMATIC SOLUTION. We have tried diplomacy for 60 years, with no rest from their perpetrations against us. Just as Hitler could not be stopped diplomatically, our enemies today cannot be stopped diplomatically. Our enemies see 'peace talks' when they war against us as weakness on the part of the West and Israel. Evil such as this must be crushed. They have tasted too much blood, and they must be put down. There is no diplomatic solution with these foes.
Again, a very firm WARNING. Do NOT view if you cannot handle the truth.
Moslem & Arab attacks and terrorist atrocities in Israel:
Israeli Bus Bombing by Arab Moslem Terrorists This is a photo of some of the dead. Two people in front, one other passenger (see his legs) behind their seat.
From Masada 2000: "On the morning of October 12, 2000, two Israeli reservists, Yesef Avrahami and Vadim Novesche, took a wrong turn on the highway and ended up being stopped by several of Arafat's Palestinian Authority "policemen." They were taken to a police station within Ramallah where they began undergoing an interrogation. Soon word got out on the streets that two Israelis were being held for questioning. Suddenly a mob gathered outside the police station. Chants of "Kill the Jews" and "Allah Akbar" rose from the mob and young men rushed through the gate and the second story window. The interrogation ended and the barbaric, cannibalistic mutilations began.
Avrahami and Novesche were beaten, stabbed countless times, their eyes were gourged from their sockets and literally disemboweled and dismembered with the attackers' bare hands. Then the filthy animals of Ramallah threw one down to the waiting mob down below where his face was further crushed with stones, feet, fists and even a heavy metal window frame. One Jew was set on fire and dragged along the street as the other Moslem psychopaths danced and cheered in a frenzied, hideous ecstasy."

THESE ARE THE PEOPLE WHO ARE OUR ENEMIES:
This is what they do to their own people:
A suspected Arab collaborator for Israel, is hung up in central Ramallah. A 'fellow Arab' carves his chest.
Below: Arab children view body lying in public on the street.
And this is what these people did to YOU in America...
And this is what the Arabs in the Palestinian Authority did when they heard that America was attacked and people were jumping out of windows to their death. They cheered and celebrated. View the short video clip below.
So, Mr. Bush, are these the people you want to give another Moslem state to? There are 22 Arab/Moslem states, and 1 tiny Israel you want to carve out more of. How can you and your Road Map support such an evil idea? Instead of rewarding them with a state, good people of the world should send their armies to defeat these murderers like they did the Nazis. Remember who you are dealing with. Remember what the terrorists said when in September of 2004 they took hostage, a school filled with women and children in Beslan, Russia and 320 people (teachers, children and parents) were killed. When one of the women victims pleaded with them for their lives ---she had said to them that they (their community) would try to pay them whatever they wanted, just please let them go... They answered her that they didn't want money. They simply told her, "We came here to die".
THERE IS NO DIPLOMATIC SOLUTION.
Anyone who supports the idea of two states, Israel AND a Palestinian state carved out from the belly of Israel, essentially supports the end of Israel.
As stated in a previous piece I wrote of what the two-state map would probably look like (see 2nd map below), Israel could not possibly survive another land amputation. It would be like cutting out Israel's heart and placing inside its body, a time bomb. Installing a Moslem Terror State inside Israel would be the means to her end. While both a heart ticks and a bomb ticks, one gives life, the other explodes in a rain of death.
Please view the map below and realize that this 'vision' and road map plan that U.S. President Bush wishes to implement before the end of his term, another 9 months, will birth the end of Israel. This Palestinian State he wishes to see would bring Israeli population centers within rocket range of PA kassams and katyushas. Every major city (including Haifa) would be in their scope. This includes Israel's Ben Gurion Airport.
Map below from Israel Unity Coalition.
Every plane that takes off or lands could be targeted. If just one plane carrying residents and tourists were to explode, it would be the end of tourism and air travel for Israelis. Import and export business could come to an end, contracts canceled, when products ordered do not arrive in Europe, or when Israelis could not get insurance to cover their products because of the terror threat. Economically Israel could fall, not to mention the human life lost that could go into the mega-count. Israel would be unable to defend itself, its new tiny borders and it's population.
Buddy Macy asked that his email be published, I am doing so.
"To the Esteemed Leaders of the Orthodox Union:
For the past two weeks my fellow activists and I have appealed to you to leave the Jewish Council for Public Affairs, following the coalition's decision to publicly support a two-state solution – a strategy to which you are vehemently opposed, and about which Foreign Minister Tzipi Livni recently said, "The creation of a Palestinian state is not the required answer to Israel's security needs."
G-d knows my fellow activists and I are far from perfect. If we are wrong at this critical time, please identify and explain to us the errors in our thinking. However, if you are unable to do so, then you owe it to your constituency, to Israel and to the entire Jewish People to take the appropriate action…and, not after Purim, or not even after Shabbat (which begins in less than 10 hours). Israel does not have the luxury of time to wait while the OU researches, debates and analyzes the situation to determine its next course of action. Nor should the hallowed body require it.
I assume that the mainstream American Jewish organizations have lobbied you to remain in the JCPA. Fortunately, the Truth is something that may not be altered or squeezed to fit into a particular agenda. G-d and the Truth stand alone in their perfection.
Thank you for your immediate attention to facing G-d and the Truth.
By request of Michelle from Vancouver, # 7 talk-back, I am including a map showing the proportional size of Israel to the Arab world. Israel is the tiny yellow speck, below. For an even better map which includes Moslem countries throughout the world, click on Masada 2000's website HERE.
Bush is not Israel's friend. Jewish institutions must not support his 'vision', the Road Map, or the ceding of any land, including the Holy City of Jerusalem. To do so, is to support the end of Israel.
