PART IA SADLY NECESSARY PRELUDE"And I will make thee unto this people a fortified, brazen wall and they shall fight against thee but they shall not prevail against thee. For I am with thee to save thee and deliver thee, saith the L-rd, and I will deliver thee out of the hand of the wicked and I will redeem thee out of the hand of the terrible" (
).Chapter 1The HateOld witchhunters never die; they return in the form of Israeli liberal-leftist news media people, intellectualsand politicians along with presidents of Jewish Establishment groups and rabbis in the United States.For those too young to have even experienced the late United States Senator Joe McCarthy and his smearingof character and names of innocent people, for those below the age of 300 or so, who never lived in Salem or participated in the great hunt, "which is witch," regret not. McCarthy and the Salem witchhunters have returnedin full regalia, but this time in the Jewish communities of Israel and the Exile.As I step back and review the events that have occurred since 26,000 Israelis voted that I be their representative in the Knesset, I am overwhelmed by the sheer magnitude of the screeching hatred of the liberalintellectual mob. "Racist," "fascist," "madman," "pig" were among the kinder epithets thrown out by the liberalhumanists and democrats of the Jewish state and their partisans in America. "Hitler," "Nazi" were the morerelevant, juicier imprecations brought down on my head. And, of course, all from people who pride themselveson their culture, fair play, democratic tolerance and intellectual ability to discuss any and all issues scientifically,calmly, rationally. Their hatred is a poisonous, noxious thing.In the time since my election to Israel's Knesset, I have seen hatred and defamation and lies and shrill,irrational, hysterical bile — all within the framework of a stupefying refusal to debate me on any of the issues athand. I have seen Israel government television and radio rule that Meir Kahane, a Knesset member whom theyutterly oppose, be, therefore, not permitted to appear on programs; to have his statements reported; to have his press conferences covered. I have seen yellow-journalism reporting and blatant, deliberate lies all with intent tosmear and defame. I have seen the armed forces, whose neutrality and non-political status must be assured inorder to unify rather than drive yet another wedge in the fabric of the people, plan a campaign of hate anddefamation against Meir Kahane, a Knesset member, forcing soldiers to attend lectures by leftists that drip hatredand poisonous venom. I have seen the official army radio devote an entire day to a non-stop attack on Meir Kahane, a Knesset member, including the damning of his "crime"—seeking to have Jewish Law obeyed in theJewish State. I have seen the Knesset rules changed more in the space of a year than in the previous 36 of thestate, all in order to limit, as much as possible, Meir Kahane, a Knesset number, from exercising his right tospeak and to propose legislation. I have seen the Knesset pass a rule that allows the Speaker, on his initiative andwithout need to defend his action, to refuse to table any bill that he considers "racist"
when no definition of racism is provided
. I have seen the power used to ban as racist two bills by Meir Kahane that quoted the greatTalmudic codifier, Maimonides, word for word! I have seen a bill presented, giving a political committee of theKnesset the right to ban a party as "racist," with racism defined as "causing animosity between sections of the people" —a definition that could ban every party in Israel, every newspaper in Israel, every second person inIsrael.I have seen police arbitrarily refuse to grant permits for our rallies or allow a counter-rally within 30 metersof ours, with a loudspeaker blaring and thousands of whistles drowning out the speech. I have seen unashamedand open appeals to physically prevent Meir Kahane, a Knesset member, from speaking, and I have seen hordesof leftist stormtroopers physically assault Jews. I have seen Knesset members walk out as Meir Kahane, aKnesset member, rose to speak, thus justifying the walkout by Arabs, Communists and Third World states onIsraeli speakers in the U.N. whom they consider to be racists because they are Zionists. I have seen liberal, progressive American Jewish Establishment groups join in the lies, the smears, and in the refusals to sit at thesame table and debate issues with Meir Kahane, a Knesset member, thus justifying PLO "hardliners" who will not participate in discussions with Zionists. I have seen synagogues and temples who have hosted Arabs and Black anti-Semites refuse to allow Meir Kahane, a Knesset member, to speak. I have seen Jewish Establishments in theUnited States pressure hotels and halls to cancel contracts for meetings by Meir Kahane, a Knesset member. I
