Rabbi Meir Kahane was a radical Zionist author and lecturer, born in New York City in 1932. In 1968 Kahane founded the militant Jewish Defense League, which still trains Jewish boys in martial arts in order for them to "defend" their people against Arabs and African Americans. Kahane was a member of the Israeli Knesset, representing the right-wing Kach party from 1984 to 1988. In 1987 he founded the Yeshiva of The Jewish Idea in Jerusalem. In 1990, while lecturing in New York City at a meeting calling for the mass immigration of American Jewry to Israel, he was assasinated by El Sayed A Nosair.

Books by Kahane:Kahane's work brims with vitriol, racism, hate, and occassionally justified paranoia.
