Israeli MK Denied Visa to Enter U.S.

March 17, 2012
(fieryspiritedzionist) While actual jihad terrorists are given visas to enter the United States, an elected member of Israel’s parliament has been denied a visa for entry into the U.S. on the grounds that he is a “terrorist”. His “crime” is his support of the late Rabbi Meir Kahane. Its within acceptable discourse to advocate for the ethnic cleansing of Jews from Judea and Samaria and parts of Jerusalem, but its considered “terrorism” to merely be a follower of the man who advocated for transporting the Arab-muslims living there based on their unwillingness to live in peace with Jews.

OUTRAGE! Obama Denies Visa to Israel Parliament Member; Israeli Legislative Trip to US Canceled By Debbie Schlussel
Michael Ben-Ari is an elected Member of the Knesset, Israel’s parliament. But the Obama adminstration is denying him a visa to the United States. Barack Obama, Hillary Clinton, and their minions are calling this man a “terrorist,” even though he’s never been a member of a terrorist group and never participated in a terrorist attack. Instead, he’s a respected elected official in Israel, who commands the respect of members of all parties along the ideological divide. And, yet, this is the second time (2009 was the first) that Dr. Ben-Ari has been denied entry here.

Yet, admitted Jew-killers and terrorists like Palestinian Authority President Mahmoud Abbas a/k/a “Abu Mazen,” who was the paymaster of the Munich Olympic terrorists, are welcome guests not only in the U.S. but at 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue. Unlike Ben-Ari, Abbas has not faced a democratic election in some time, and if he were to face one today, he’d lose to HAMAS.
So, what is Ben-Ari’s “crime”? What has he done that is so offensive and noxious to the Obama border police who will let all of the scum of the earth into the U.S. but not this man who grew up in liberal Tel Aviv, has a Ph.D., and served in the Israeli Army with honor. continue reading

No Illusions Please – Rabbi Meir Kahane 1972

No Illusions Please – 1972


(5732-33) (1971-73)


August 25, 1972

The problem is that time is always on the side of the tenacious; conversely, it is the enemy of the weary. The never-ending struggle erodes the determination to search for solutions and compromises that are often more the product of the desire to rest than that of common sense.
Those who are tired allow themselves to believe what freshness of vigor would label as nonsense. Exhaustion and monotony push us into self-delusion We become partners to our own destruction as we fool ourselves into believing that madness is sanity, war is peace, evil is good–all so that we might return to a life of peace and normalcy.
Time is also on the side of the aggressor and works against his intended victim. For it gradually washes out of our minds the past moment of danger, the time when the aggressor sought to attack, plunder, and destroy. That moment of awful truth from which the victim was barely saved fades from his memory. And with the receding of the terrible reality comes arguments cloaked in the peculiar morality that flourishes in the rarefied air of the ivory tower. With the passing of the danger, as the waves of time roll over the stark monuments to that moment of extinction, we turn away from the men to whom we rushed for safety, the generals and soldiers who exist in the harsh world of reality, and we begin to listen to the unreal academics, whose frustrations and envy of the men of reality are too often mistaken for spiritual and moral loftiness.
Our combination of weariness and forgetfulness turns us away from common sense and into the arms of the denizens of the ivory tower, the demagogues and the opportunists. It is at moments like this that we throw away sanity and lose the strength that alone can save us, that alone can enable us to snatch defeat from the jaws of victory.
Perhaps it is common to all people, perhaps it is more so with us Jews, the inability to withstand victory. But regardless of the ultimate roots of the problem, the fact remains that five years after 2.6 million Jews, together with their nineteen-year-old state, were saved from extinction, large and larger numbers of those who were almost slaughtered seek to return again to the moment of truth
Forgotten are the 1967 pronouncements from Cairo, Damascus, Amman, Beirut, Baghdad, and Fatah. Forgotten are the pledges to throw us into the sea, wash Tel Aviv clean with Jewish blood, and eliminate the “gangster state” of Israel. Forgotten are the insanity of borders that left the coastal strip with its million Jews under the guns of Arab armies just twelve, thirteen, or fifteen kilometers away. Forgotten are the shells that swept into Masaryk Square in Tel Aviv and the Egyptian planes just minutes away from the heartland. Forgotten are our own projections of tens of thousands of soldiers, and perhaps fifty thousand civilians, dead. Forgotten are the borders that left settlements on the Huleh Plain lying naked beneath the Golan Syrian guns, the hills of Ephraim dominating Tel Aviv and its sister cities, the Sinai with its Egyptian land armada within spitting distance of our cities. But forgotten most of all are the hate, the bitter enmity, the solemn pledges of extermination, the schoolbooks with their poisonous venom, the glee and ecstasy of the days of May and early June 1967 when the mobs and potential murderers and rapists were lashing about in an agony of anticipation of the great jihad, the “holy war” that was about to begin. Forgotten is the reality of Arab refusal to recognize a State of Israel that is even one dunam square. Forgotten is the never-changing reality of “Hebronism”?
What is “Hebronism”? It is the Arab policy of extermination of the Jew who seeks to live in his own land. It is the reality of that August day of 1929 that saw men, women, and children slaughtered in the streets, homes, and shops of Jewish Hebron. It is the reality of the rape and torture and gouging to death, not of “Zionists,” but of yeshiva students and their families, of Ashkenazim and also of Sephardim (the latter who have suddenly become “Jewish Arabs” in the propaganda of Fatah). It is the pogroms of 1920.1921.1936-39, and 1947. In short, “Hebronism” is that policy of Arab treatment of Jews that would be the rule for us every day of the week could our enemies only accomplish it. Should we be so insane as to listen to the “doves” among us who would let them do just that?
We are inundated with all kinds of illusions and delusions. Let us return this land or that land and we will have blessed peace. Let us not dare to settle Jews in Eretz Yisroel lest it anger the Arabs and jeopardize blessed peace. Let us make partial and semi partial and total and semi total agreements that call for compromise and we shall have blessed peace. Let us not move Arabs from the borders and settle Jews there; let us not dare to bomb terrorists lest we hit innocent civilians; let us be “better than they are”- and thus gain blessed peace. Let us recognize the existence of a “Palestine people” despite the refusal of every other Arab country to do so, at a time when they might at last have set up a partial “Palestine” state after 1947. Let us negotiate with our friends the mayors of Gaza and Shehem and Hebron, for they are the solution to the problem of peace. Let us, perhaps, even consider a binational state for the sake of blessed peace. Let us realize that we can reach peace and brotherhood with the Arabs by political concessions and compromises.
It is time for the Jew in Israel to throw away those negative attitudes that he retains from the Galut, the exile. Chief among these is an unwillingness to look at bitter reality. We may not enjoy hearing it, but the truth is that for many years at least there will not be a sincere de jure peace with the Arabs. It may affect the tender souls of the more spiritually intellectual among us, but one can never attain either peace or security by “compromise” with bitter enemies who have no intentions of compromising with you. Those in Judea, Samaria, and Gaza who do sit down with you because they have no choice, do so only in the hope of getting rid of you as soon as possible. Our enemy, in the long run, is weariness. It is against this enemy that we must struggle. We must gird ourselves with tenacity and determination never to tire of what appears to be a never-ending struggle. For that is what it may very well become: a struggle for Jewish existence and a Jewish state that will never cease to be a struggle; a realization that between us and the Arabs stands a massive barrier that may never be breached; a determination by two peoples to live in a land that at least one will never compromise on. There will grow the weariness of having to send our children to the army without stop. There will grow the weariness of having to leave each year for reserve duty. There will grow the weariness of terrorist attacks on the borders or at the Lod airport or at the Tel Aviv bus terminal. There will, perhaps, again grow the weariness-and the heartbreak-of victims of a new war of attrition. There will grow the weariness of all this, rising to a crescendo with the frustrating cry: “When will it finally end?”
Only the weak succumb to such frustrations; only the weak surrender to time. A strong and tenacious people know that there may never be an end to the struggle and the sacrifice. But, they also look about them and see what their refusal to surrender has accomplished: a state, and today a big one, in much of our Eretz Yisroel; a Jewish state with nearly three million souls and many more to come; the creation of a new and proud Jew. None of these things would have come about had we listened to the intellectual precursors of our modern-day intellectuals and doves. In the name of “peace” there would be no Jewish state; in the name of “morality” there would be no free Jewish nation.
If we hope to survive in the literal sense of the word, let us not succumb to the siren call of easy answers and the tempting promise of “peace.” Above all, let us, please, have no illusions. The Arabs intend to wipe us out; we must be strong enough to stop them. the Arabs who live with us in Eretz Yisroel, both those who have done so for twenty-five years and those for just five, do not live us and never will-and one cannot blame them. Let us not play games with them or with ourselves. We give them civil rights and political freedom, but what Jew will ever agree that they should become a majority? What Jew will ever agree to allow Arabs to come in on the same terms as Jews do today under the Law of Return? Israel was formed as a Jewish state. Arabs may have social, economic, and much political equality but, in the end, it is not their state. For the individual Arab we offer much, but for the Arab nation, Israel offers nothing. It is not an Arab state, it is a Jewish state. It came into being because Jews knew that for them there was no hope in a world that thirsted for their bodies and souls. It came into being under the realization that neither king nor republican or Marxist had the solution to the Jewish problem. That in the end it was the words of the rabbis that proved to be eternally true: “It is a law, it is known that Esau hates Jacob.”
And so, Eretz Yisroel, the land of the Jewish people, exists. It can never be anything but that and both we and the Arabs know it. Such a fact allows for few illusions over peace. Perhaps peace will come some day; I for one, doubt it. Until it does, let us not listen to the illusions that float down to us daily from the ivory tower or from the self-hating Left. Strength and tenacity-they and they alone assure Jewish survival.

Kahane Family to Sue IBA

November 30, 2010

Baruch Kahane, a son of Rabbi Meir Kahane, who was murdered two decades ago in New York, has filed suit against the Israel Broadcast Authority because of its refusal to accept ads inviting the public to a memorial service for the late Rabbi. Family members have a signed contract with the IBA for the broadcast of 20 ads inviting the public to the memorial, and agreed to adjust the content of the ads to meet the demands of the IBA. But after Peace Now and other leftist groups complained, the IBA decided to violate the contract, and refused to air the ads.
The family is suing for NIS 150,000 compensation and damages. A family member said that it was “shameful that 20 years after the Rabbi’s murder there are still people who wish to hurt his memory. Those who speak of democracy must remember that democracy applies not only to anarchists and terrorists, but also to good Jews who worked on behalf of the Jewish nation.”

the left is terrified because most of Israel now reveres the late rabbi.

Rabbi Kahane’s Legacy Remembered at Ground Zero

November 9, 2010

In 1980, Rabbi Kahane formed the Kach political party in Israel and in 1984 was elected as a Member of the Knesset. He refused to take the standard oath of office upon his election and insisted on adding a verse from the Book of Psalms (Tehillim) to indicate that when secular laws and Torah conflict, Torah law should have supremacy over the laws of the Knesset.
Rabbi Kahane’s legislative proposals focused on transferring the hostile Arab population out of Israel, revoking the Israeli citizenship of non-Jews and banning Jewish-Gentile marriages and sexual relations, based on the Code of Jewish Law compiled by Maimonides.
As Rabbi Kahane’s message continued to strongly resonate with the Israeli population, the Central Elections Committee banned him from being a candidate on the grounds that Kach was a racist party.

although Rabbi Kahane was condemned by the Jewish establishment while was alive, “Everyone in Israel knows that Kahane was right.”

November 5, 1990 was the start of WWIII: Islam vs. the world. From Rabbi Kahane to 9/11 — by Shelomo Alfassa, Feb 10, 2004
As Rabbi Kahane finished speaking at a conference at the Marriott Hotel, an Arab named Sayyid Nosair rushed toward the stage and fired a single, fatal shot. As Kahane collapsed, he raised one finger towards heaven, silently reciting the Shema.
Here are the events and connections which followed.
Sayyid Nosair was captured and taken into custody.
Sayyid Nosair is aquited of the assassination by a Manhattan jury on Dec. 21, 1991.
Although Sayyid Nosair was acquitted, he is sentenced to life in prison after he was convicted in a new trial of involvement in the assassination and conspiracy to commit terrorism in the USA with Egyptian Sheikh Omar Abdel Rahman (the blind sheik).
A police search of Nosair’s home yielded a “treasure trove of information,” according to Ed Norris, then the chief of New York Police Department detectives. What they found were clues to an Islamic terrorist cell operating on U.S. soil – Arabic-language terrorist manuals, bomb-making instructions, videotapes and photographs of New York City landmarks.
Nosair’s cousin Ibrahim El-Gabrowny received 57 years in US prison for the conspiracy and other charges, including possession of bogus passports and visas intended to get Nosair out of the country following a jailbreak.
Nosair’s cousin, Ibrahim el-Gabrowny obtained a $20,000 contribution from Osama bin Laden for Nosair’s legal defense. Wadi El-Hage, the key Al Qaeda operative involved in the 1998 bombings of the U.S. embassies in Kenya and Tanzania, visited Nosair in his U.S. prison, several years before he went to East Africa.
Seven other defendants received sentences between 25 and 35 years each for planning what prosecutors called a “war of urban terrorism” aimed at changing U.S. policy in the Middle East.
Sayyid Nosair had been a core member of the Al Salaam Mosque which was run by Omar Abdel Rahman.
One of the main operatives the CIA had utilized in its war against the Soviets was Omar Abdel Rahman. The CIA utilized Rahman because of his influence over the Mujahadeen, then brought him into the U.S. on a CIA-sponsored visa.
Omar Abdel Rahman was the spiritual leader of a group call Jama’at al-Jihad who assassinated Answar Sadat, President of Egypt.
On Feb. 26, 1993, a truck bomb exploded in a parking garage beneath the World Trade Center. The blast killed six people, injured more than 1,000 others and caused more than $700 million in damage. Omar Abdel Rahman was later convicted as the mastermind of this bombing.
Osama Bin Laden’s war on the West would continue. Some plots, such as a plan to bomb Los Angeles International Airport, were foiled. Others, like the bombing of the USS Cole in Yemen, were not.
Police raids broke up al Qaeda cells in Frankfurt, Germany, Milan, Italy, and London, but a cell in Hamburg, Germany, led by a young Egyptian named Mohamed Atta, went undetected.
Mohammed Omar Abdel-Rahman, is a son of the blind sheik Omar Abdel-Rahman. Mohammed, in his late 30s, is perhaps the most senior Al Qaeda member after bin Laden and his deputy, Ayman al-Zawahri. He is alleged to have organized the Sept. 11, 2001 terror attacks. (He is on the run like Bin Laden.)
Mohammed Atta and his team of Arab murderers killed 3,000 U.S. citizens on September 11th. That was a victory in the war which started on November 5, 1990 with the assassination of Rabbi Meir Kahane.
The war continues.
Note: These facts are all from open source government documents and news reports.
At the end of 1999, New Trend magazine, America’s most widely distributed Islamic publication carried out a survey of its readers to select the top five Muslim men of the 20th century. Shaikh Omar ‘Abdel Rahman was chosen among the top five by this highly educated and well-read audience.

Sharon was Kahane killer’s target

August 15, 2010

The man who killed Meir Kahane in 1990 claims he did not carry out the shooting alone, as previously thought, but was part of a three-man terrorist cell with links to al-Qaida. Its original target was future prime minister Ariel Sharon, according to a newly-leaked US government document.
During his investigation for an article into alleged counter- terrorism blunders published in Playboy magazine on Friday, freelance journalist Peter Lance uncovered official FBI memos which bring new information to light about the murder of the Israeli politician in New York.
According to the documents, Kahane’s killer, El-Sayyid Nosair, told detectives in 2005 that he had planned to assassinate Sharon, who was then Israel’s minister of housing and construction.

I loved Sharon, but there is no doubt he blundered by withdrawing from Gaza. I wish he was the one who got the bullet… not the man who pointed out the hypocrisy of tolerating those who believe their religion should kill Jews.

One Makes Peace with a Former Enemy not an Enemy

March 11, 2010

Pipes makes some observations that are very good:

Rabin’s mistake was simple and profound: One cannot “make peace with one’s enemy,” as he imagined. Rather, one makes peace with one’s former enemy. Peace nearly always requires one side in a conflict to be defeated and thus give up its goals.

Wars end not through goodwill but through victory. “Let your great object [in war] be victory” observed Sun Tzu, the ancient Chinese strategist. “War is an act of violence to compel the enemy to fulfill our will,” wrote his nineteenth-century Prussian successor, Karl von Clausewitz in 1832. Douglas MacArthur observed in 1951 that in “war, there is no substitute for victory.”

Technological advancement has not altered this insight. Fighting either continues or potentially can resume so long as both sides hope to achieve their war goals. Victory consists of imposing one’s will on the enemy, compelling him to give up his war ambitions. Wars typically end when one side gives up hope, when its will to fight has been crushed.

Defeat, one might think, usually follows on devastating battlefield losses, as was the case of the Axis in 1945. But that has rarely occurred during the past sixty years. Battlefield losses by the Arab states to Israel in 1948-82, by North Korea in 1953, by Saddam Hussein in 1991, and by Iraqi Sunnis in 2003 did not translate into despair and surrender. Morale and will matter more these days. Although they out-manned and out-gunned their foes, the French gave up in Algeria, the Americans in Vietnam, and the Soviets in Afghanistan. The Cold War ended, notably, with barely a fatality. Crushing the enemy’s will to fight, then, does not necessarily mean crushing the enemy.

but then I question this aspect of what he is saying:

In place of victory, Israelis developed an imaginative array of approaches to manage the conflict:

  • Territorial compromise: Yitzhak Rabin (and the Oslo process).
  • Develop the Palestinian economy: Shimon Peres (and the Oslo process).
  • Unilateralism (build a wall, withdraw from Gaza): Ariel Sharon, Ehud Olmert, and the Kadima party.
  • Lease the land under Israeli towns on the West Bank for 99 years: Amir Peretz and the Labor Party.
  • Encourage the Palestinians to develop good government: Natan Sharansky (and George W. Bush).
  • Territorial retreat: Israel’s Left.
  • Exclude disloyal Palestinians from Israeli citizenship: Avigdor Lieberman.
  • Offer Jordan as Palestine: elements of Israel’s Right.
  • Expel Palestinians from lands controlled by Israel: Meir Kahane.

Contradictory in spirit and mutually exclusive as they are, these approaches all aim to finesse war rather than win it. Not one of them addresses the need to break the Palestinian will to fight. Just as the Oslo negotiations failed, I predict that so too will every Israeli scheme that avoids the hard work of winning.


I would argue that “Exclude disloyal Palestinians from Israeli citizenship: Avigdor Lieberman.” and “Expel Palestinians from lands controlled by Israel: Meir Kahane.” would break the wills of Palestine very well. but Daniel Pipes is right that we need to break their will. I don’t think we will break wills by allowing people who kill Jews hiding behind Gharqad trees to live with us.

as a clear policy in my opinion all governments around the world with Islamic populations should ask these citizens what they believe. If there is evidence that they believe that they can kill Jews behind trees or murder converts, then the easy solution would be to deport them. If Israel would do this very Democratic practice of protecting it’s citizens from hate all of this would be conjecture. If they mean to kill others because of what they believe then they do not belong as citizens. of course we understand that part of Islamic law allows these people to lie. For this reason you just find evidence like any other murder plot. If Israel had been applying this law from the start then there would be no more conflict. What country would deny a people the right to not be murdered? Perhaps Europe and the West should also take note that there is a very fair way to deal with hate.
