Yitzhak Rabin was a Kahanist?!

by Ariel Natan Pasko

Yitzhak Rabin was a Kahanist. I said it in 1994 and 1995, and I'm saying it again. You know terminology is a funny thing; you have to understand the real meaning of what a person says, the words he uses, to truly understand the ideas they intend to convey. So I repeat myself for clarity...

Rabin was a "Kahanist in Reverse" and so too is Ariel Sharon today.

So are both Yossis, Yossi Sarid and Yossi Beilin, Peace Now and Gush Shalom, they all want to get rid of the "Palestinians." After twenty years, they've finally agreed with the "demographic threat" that Rabbi Meir Kahane warned about. The only difference is that where Rabbi Meir Kahane, his followers, and the current transferists on the Right, like Rabbi Benny Elon and the Moledet/National Union Party want to "Transfer" the Arabs out of the Land of Israel and "Transfer" full control of the Land to the Jews; Yitzhak Rabin, his followers, and the current separationists like the Labor Party, the both Yossis et al and their Yahad Party and others on the Left, want to "Transfer" Jews out of parts of the Land of Israel and "Transfer" parts of the Land to Arab control.

Today we can add Sharon and parts of the Likud Party, along with - so-called Centrist - Shinui, who want to "Transfer" Jews out of Gaza - they call it "Disengagement" - to the list of "Kahanists in Reverse."

It's a funny thing about terminology; Rabbi Meir Kahane never used the term "Transfer". He always spoke of "Havdalah," that is "Separation" between the Jews and the Arabs in the Land of Israel. The Jews would stay. The Arabs would go, voluntarily or otherwise. Interestingly, Rabbi Kahane always said he wished the Arabs a good life, somewhere else, just
not in "his" country.

Then he was banned from running in the 1988 Knesset elections.
