Rabbi: Kahane Would Not Approve 'Price Tag'


Rabbi Yehudah Kreuser of the Binyamin-region community of Mitzpeh Yericho said, Monday, that Rabbi Meir Kahane would not have approved the "price tag" vandalism carried out against, Arab, leftist and military targets in reaction to actions taken against Jewish residents of Judea and Samaria. Interviewed by Arutz Sheva's Hebrew service, ahead of Monday evening's 21st anniversary of Rabbi Kahane's murder, Rabbi Kreuser said that Rabbi Kahane was against illegal activities, saying people could not take the place of authorities, the state or the Israel Defense Forces, rather that those in charge should learn to do the right thing.

Rabbi Kreuser, who heads the Yeshiva of the Jewish Idea, started by Rabbi Kahane, remembered him as a man of Torah and a man of action, who believed that to guard the land, one had to have a connection to Torah. He said that attendance at memorial services for the ousted Knesset member were steadily increasing, in spite of the passage of time and the efforts of those who would malign him and reduce his status.
