Israel can only be sustained by a permanent Jewish majority and a small. Arabs in theirs. Jews in their land.
Could the Arabs be convinced to leave? Is there a solution? Rabbi Kahane insists. His crime: Israeli Arabs would be given the options of accepting noncitizenship. They mockingly accept moneys from the National Insurance Institute for medical services. They feel no ties for a state that breathes Jewishness. Is there a time bomb ticking away relentlessly in the Holy Land? Can Arabs and Jews ultimately coexist in a Jewish-Zionist state?
Even worse. Only separation. Are we [Israel] committed to national suicide? Should we allow demography. But the Arab population continues to grown quantitatively and qualitatively.

Given that Fanon views colonialism as itself an act of violence and Kahane views anti-Semitism in much the same way, each adopts the tools of the oppressor to contest their respective forms of oppression. Both hold this is necessary for slightly different reasons: In that sense, in contrast to Arendt who holds that violence is not a form of power but its opposite, violence and power are synonymous for Kahane.
Jewish panthers. Jewish hoodlums. There are things that, in the minds of the Jewish community, make up the JDL. It not only made no difference to us, we encouraged the labels and the reputation and were encouraged by them. What the Jew failed to understand. Violence is a way for the disempowered to attain power and not the way of those in power maintain it. Violence is an exercise of weakness. The power of anti-Semitism for him is not only in its active violence against Jews.
Th e Wa r a g a i n s t t h e A m e r i c a n J e w i s h E s ta b l i s h m e n t While Kahane targets anti-Semitism as his primary adversary, his second- tier enemy, no less formidable and entrenched, is the Jewish liberal, what he calls the American Jewish Establishment.
They can fight poverty precisely because they profit from it. With a good bullet from a good gun and bury you, with a good shovel in the good earth. But he must also ensure that all the untruths placed within him by the oppressor be eliminated.
In a colonial regime such as the one in Algeria, the ideas taught by colonialism impacted not only the European minority but also the Algerian.
Total liberation involved every facet of the personality. And it is precisely that figure that is cultivated by the AJE with its upwardly mobile ethos and passive nature. Can we join the JDL? This is an attack on the old-Galut Torah that venerated piety and martyrdom and on the AJE that worshipped on the altar of liberalism and nonviolence.
Zvi Yehuda Kook in Israel. But summarily dismissing him as a result of those alternatives may be the easy way to discount his critique of the American Jewish Establishment. It can also include other acts that seek to upend the system rather than accommodate to it.
Hitler maintained the basic social structure of the society in which he lived and preyed on anti-Semitic attitudes already pervasive in German society. Hitler destroyed a world but in the end he changed nothing.
Perhaps this speaks to the distinction George Sorel makes in his Reflections on Violence between the political verses the proletarian strike. Here I think Kahane would advocate the latter, and not necessary through physical harm but through the threat of such harm, or even through a collective protest against the systems of power.
Echoing Fanon, Kahane argued that those in power do not cede power unless they are forced to do so Martin Luther King agreed with this as well. The question is, how does one force them to do so? There are many ways, civil disobedience is one this is what Martin Luther King chose in the Selma march in , overt violence is another. That would maximize the potential for Jewish survival. Whether the Soviet Jewry Movement would have been as successful as it was without Kahane is an open question.
But there is little doubt that he forced it to the headlines and made it a national issue, which put pressure on the U. Toward a new humanism. This power was achieved through fear and was maintained by the threat of violence.
All the rest would be worked out in the messianic days. In sum, my interest in Kahane as a significant voice on postwar America is more about his critique of the AJE than about his solutions. Given that violence has been with us for a long time and does not seem to be going away anytime soon, and given our commitment to creating a society where human safety and flourishing can be maximized, it is worth examining this one Jewish case, and I maintain it is a Jewish case, for the use, or threat, of violence as one solution to the problem of Jewish survival and existence, even if in the end we reject it.
How we reject it and what we put in its place may be our most serious challenge. Notes 1. Some important work has been done on Kahane, mostly in regard to his career in Israel.
