An Interview with Rabbi Meir Kahane,
Kahane Magazine, April 1978, p.22
There is a truth, a Jewish truth that no one speaks today. The Jewish Idea has been corrupted and silenced. There must be one person who is prepared to speak the entire truth in the truthful way. No one else speaks about the holocaust that must grip the Galut; no one else speaks about the need to remove the Arabs from Eretz Yisroel; no one else says that to depend on the Americans will not bring salvation but rather Divine punishment; no one else ways that if the government of Israel will not annex the lands, Divine Punishment will again strike us; no one else says that we must defy the government if it defies Jewish law; no one else speaks as a Jew, and with the Jewish Idea. That is my obligation. If I have support and if I have followers, well and good. If I am able to build an organization, so much the better. But if I have to be alone and shout out the lonely truth in that way – that will be my role.
“On A Hill Near Shchem,”
Jewish Press, October 13, 1978
Conversation between Rabbi Kahane and the soldiers of Israel
“Why do you have to give us such a hard time?” asked one soldier. “I am not the only one who gives you a hard time,” I replied, “you are the ones who are breaking the law. The law says that a Jew must live in Eretz Yisroel and settle everywhere, and you prevent it.” “The only law that we have is the government, and you are violating it.Besides, we want peace and you are destroying the chances for peace.” “And you really believe that by giving up Sinai and giving the Arabs Judea and Samaria, you will have peace? Don’t you remember how they went to war when they had the Sinai and Judea-Samaria?” The soldiers had now gathered around me and one said: “But things are different today!” “How do you know?” I shot back, “Why do you risk the state by trusting an enemy that started four wars?” “We have to gamble! It is impossible to keep on fighting. I am willing to take the risk.” It was clear that this was the view of most of the soldiers, almost all of whom were irreligious.
“I’ll tell you,” I said. “If you really want to gamble, trust me – not the Arabs. I tell you that if you will all put on tefillin for a month, the Messiah will come. And if you gamble on tefillin and the Messiah does not come, what have you lost?”
. . . Tomorrow would be Friday, Begin was coming home. At the airport he would be greeted by thousands of cheering Israelis and he would cry out to them: “I have brought you peace!”Voices. Voices. Voices. From yet another airport; from yet another Prime Minister; to yet another cheering crowd. “I have brought you peace in our time . . .”It was Chamberlain coming home from Munich. The bus started up and the settlement had come to an end. This time there was no singing.
“The Second Revolution,”
Jewish Press, October 20, 1978
While no other Prime Minister used the name of G-d, Begin mouths it and then gives away Jewish rights because Jimmy Carter, in his eyes, is more real. Fear of being isolate? Trembling at the fact that no newspapers supported Israel? Worry over the loss of allies? The redemption of the Jewish people will come with the greatest grandeur precisely when Israel is isolated!And these are the words of the Prophet Isaiah as he envisioned the final redemption, words we read in the synagogue on the week before Rosh Hashanah; words that were mouthed without listening to them or understanding them. The Prophet speaks of the anger and vengeance of G-d against Israel’s enemies:
“I have trodden in the winepress ALONE, and of the nations THERE WAS NONE WITH ME. . . For the day of vengeance is in My heart, and the year of My redemption is come. And I looked and there was none to help . . . therefore has My own arm brought salvation . . .” (Isaiah 63:3-5)
Not through Jimmy Carter are we saved, and not through allies and gentile salvation. Begin, who gave into pressure, is no better than all the others whom he so bitterly criticized when he was in opposition. Fear of the gentile has taken precedence over the awe of G-d. That is the heart of the problem. That is why Begin brought home, not peace, but war. For peace will only come when He who creates and grants peace will agree. That agreement can never come in response to violation of Torah and to Hillul Hashem.
“One of most disliked men in Canada” to receive Queen’s Diamond Jubilee Medal for Caledonia leadership…congrats to Gary McHale!”
Gary McHale speaks at first Israel Truth Week Conference, London ON, March 21/12 after being introduced as “one of the most despised men in Canada…”
After nearly seven years of fighting against incredible odds to confront the Ontario government’s illegal ‘peacekeeping‘ mission in Caledonia alongside Gary McHale, I am so very pleased that the Canadian Taxpayers Federation will award Gary the Queen’s Diamond Jubilee Medal in honour of his dedication to that struggle:

- Simcoe Reformer, Jan 28/13: McHale to receive Jubilee medal
- CD98.9 FM, Jan 28/13: Leader of CANACE is getting the Queen’s Diamond Jubilee
Said Troy Lanigan, President of the Canadian Taxpayers Federation about honouring McHale with the medal:
“The more we thought about it, the more we saw that people who should be recognized wouldn’t be recognized,” he said. “These are the kind of people we wanted to recognize. They’ve challenged the status quo. Gary McHale fits the bill. He has fought, in our view, for the equal application of the law and the execution of court orders. He’s taken some risks and some beatings over this, both literally and figuratively.”

I am also pleased to announce that Gary will be speaking at the upcoming Israel Truth Week Conference at Victory International Church in Hamilton, March 5-6. You can watch his mesmerizing speech from last year’s conference here after he is introduced by emcee Stuart Laughton as ‘one of the most disliked men in Canada’:
The JDL & Act For Canada Present:
An Evening With Gavin Boby, from the Law & Freedom Foundation, U.K.
Wednesday, February 6, 2013 7:30 p.m. sharp
Place: Toronto Zionist Centre
Address: 788 Marlee Road (just south of Lawrence Avenue)
Metro line: Lawrence West subway station (University Line)
Cost: $10.00 at the door; students free
Gavin Boby is a British lawyer who specializes in town planning law. He runs The Law and Freedom Foundation, dedicated to preserving a lawful society that protects freedom. Their first project is a legal effort to assist community groups, on a pro-bono basis, if they are faced with inappropriate planning applications for more mosques in their neighborhood. They focus on legal procedure but also on the nature of Islamic doctrine and as a result have won 16 out of 17 cases.
The National Post just disclosed that a Canadian Security Intelligence Service’s (CSIS) reportstated that “a large number of venues” that are used by “Islamist extremists” are “radicalizing Canadians” across Canada. In this Canadian context Gavin Boby’s message is even more relevant.
The Muslim Brotherhood, operating in Canada, just purchased a 10,000 square foot building in a Montreal neighborhood. On record, this will be the 4th real estate acquisition in a very short time span. Last fall, the Muslim Association of Canada (MAC) was also involved with the establishment of a new Mosque in Quebec City that also needed rezoning. In Edmonton, the Lessard community countered the establishment of a MAC run school in their neighborhood for fear of radicalization. Again, several zoning laws have already been transgressed by the local MAC- run Mosque and in several new Saudi and Muslim Brotherhood linked Mosques that have been built. InOttawa, MAC is also administering several venues, one of which is the Abraar school that made international headlines because “two teachers (…) who praised a pupil’s essay about killing Jews with hand grenades” were suspended.
Why should we be concerned about the Muslim Brotherhood operating in Canada? The former Chair in Islamic Studies at the University of Alberta described how the founder of the Muslim Brotherhood “hoped to change the status of the Mosque, bringing it from a static place of worship to a center of Islamic revolution. “(pp. 76-77)
Youssef Qaradawi unconditionally endorsed by leaders of the Muslim Brotherhood operating in Canada describes the role of the Mosque in these words: “To guide public policy of a Nation, raise awareness of critical issues and reveal it’s enemies. From ancient times the Mosque has had a role in urging Jihad for the sake of Allah.”
This will be a very special evening so please mark your calendars!

MEDIA RELEASE, Jan 24/13: [PDF] ‘Pushing Back With Truth & Action’: 2nd annual Israel Truth Week Conference in Hamilton, ON, Canada, March 5-6/13 to counter ‘Apartheid’ vilification, Canadian rule of law/policing failures’
*** Flyer-Agenda: [PDF] ***
And now from the anti Israel blogs in Canada:
Keeping up with its criminal history of aggression and oppression, the terrorist of israeli air force attacked Syria yesterday with full support from the United States. While the attack shows the impunity with which the zionist regime is able to conduct its criminal activities it also shows israeli desperation in terms of the failure to change the regime in Syria. The zionist hijacked the legitimate process of reform in Syria by unleashing tens of thousands of mercenaries. However, after trying for over a year and despite over 60,000 deaths and millions displaced the puppets have not been able to achieve the desired objective so now the puppet masters are entering the battlefield themselves.
The cartoon accurately depicts the prime minister of israel building a wall with Palestinian blood. Rather than condemning the cartoon, Jewish organizations should condemn the brutal oppression of the Palestinians by the Zionist state. The bullying of the press by the Zionists around the world is only going to work for so long. The world has refused to buy the story that because Europeans killed Jews, Zionist Jews have a right to kill Palestinians. If zionists do not like cartoons accusing them of crimes against humanity then they should stop expelling, injuring, oppressing and killing Palestinians.
Now is the time to join JDL and fight back.
We have the answers and the program required to fight the new anti semitism. Do not wait for our community leaders to give answers. Our leadership has failed to step up to the plate.
Only JDL has taken to the streets and for that, we need your support.
With Love of Israel,
