Let me start off by apologising for the crudeness of the heading and some of the language used in the text itself, but there is not a civil or genteel way to deal with the topic at hand, that being racism.

I was awakened at 4:02 AM by the call to prayer from the mosque down the hill from my home today. It reminded me of a telephone call I received at 2 A.M. on this very day twenty years ago. The call was short and sweet, from a dear friend in London…. it went as follows; “You will have a grave to piss on tomorrow”. You will understand the significance of that call when you read further into this post…..

The McCarthy era was techniclly over but it seemed to have given some a justification to carry on with fascist and racist activities. One in particular justified his actions by claiming he was acting in the name of the Jewish people. One that was called meir kahane, the vilest most dangerous individual that graced our planet since hitler himself.

In the late 1950s to early 1960s Kahane led a life of secrecy. His strong anti-Communist views landed him a position as a consultant with the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI). His assignment was to infiltrate the right-wing John Birch Society and report his findings back to the FBI. For this position Kahane took on the false name Michael King and spent nearly two and a half years posing as a Christian, learning all he could about the John Birch Society. (From) ….. So you can see he received his ‘training’ from the best….

Soon afterwards he founded the Jewish Defense League. The group was started to serve as an ‘escort service’ for Jews having to walk through predominantly Black neighbourhoods in Brooklyn on their way to their synagagues on Friday nights. In reality it was a group of stormtroopng thugs that terrorised those neighbourhoods with weekly pogroms.

I had my first personal encounter with kahane in 1960 when I was taking part in a Civil Rights demonstration at the construction site of the Brooklyn Downstate Medical Centre. My involvement led to me being arrested. As I was being dragged off to the ‘paddy wagon’ kahane himself was standing there cheering the police on. This resulted in a personal vendetta against the bastard, one that lasted till the day he was murdered.

From that day on I did everything in my power to disrupt and try to stop any activity sponsored by him. I was part of  a group that removed posters put up by his goons, disrupted his meetings and did everything in our power to keep his message silent. In many cases we were successful. His message was not limited to being anti Black, it soon expanded, in true McCarthyite fashion to anti communism and anti Sovietism.

He carried his hatred with him when he immigrated to Israel where he founded the (soon to be outlawed) Kach Party. He was successful in winning a seat in the Knesset in 1984. By then, I was also in Israel, continuing my protests against him and his group.

The last time I saw him was at a street rally held in Jerusalem. We had enough people with us which made it impossible for him to speak. When it was over he approached me, pointed his index finger at me and said “after I get rid of the Arabs I’m coming after you”. My response was “you won’t be getting rid of anyone, and I’ll piss on your grave before you get me”! (Hence the phonecall from London mentioned earlier).

This morning at 4:02 the cries of ‘Allah hu Akbar, Allah hu Akbar’ (God is great) were music to my ears…. music that he wasn’t around to enjoy. Unfortunately his ideas live on, but they too will soon be relegated to the same waste bin of history where he rots away.

So join me today, and everyday, print out the image presented above, tape it to your toilet tank and

    Sending Kahane to spy on the John Birch Society is like using a coyote to protect your chickens from weasels.

    Well said Steve. Very well said. Our planet’s knuckle-dragging ‘tough guys’ are due a little comeuppance. Just karma, that’s all I’m saying. Punks and “curbstompers” and obnoxious clowns that pound on women. In our glorious Empire this fine morning it’s a “Tim Profitt” punching a lady for Rand Paul. Yeah, tough guy there boy. Ignorant pukes that haven’t the mental capacity to extend beyond violence.
    In the ‘Holy Land’ it seems to be “settlers” that are unaccountable to law and order.
    Maybe individually, these bully-boys are almost human. Together in a pack? Rabid vermin.
    Humanity MUST stand together as one and scream very loudly, NO MORE!

    So Meir Kahane started an “escort service” through dangerous neighborhoods? Must be a lot of dangerous streets today; I see page after page of ads for escort services!

    I find it strange that every comment which contains a certain J-word is blocked on desertpeace?

    Not strange at all…. people have to learn that there is a difference between the J word and the z word.

    I don’t know if he made the best decision with choosing the bad neighborhoods. Although, I agree with you, piss on racism. I’m originally from other country and I came here to US a few years ago, but people still compare me to those from my country, the bad ones.
    In every country is a black sheep, but this doesn’t mean that all are.
