Excerpts from a JP posting by Rabbi Nachman Kahana on
March 2, 2016:
The good news is that the trickle of Jews now making Aliyah from the
is going to grow and grow and grow. USA
The bad news is: Thank you Antisemitism.
It is not a surprise to anyone that on college campuses in the
, Jewish students are harassed, abused and bullied whether it be in regard to a Jew showing his Jewishness by wearing a kippah or protesting against a USA BDS campaign or for supporting and the like*. Israel
For Rabbi Kahana the “best” is yet to come. He addresses the Jewish community in the
, issuing the following warning: “The organized mistreatment of Jews on the campuses will spread into your work-places, to your streets, to your shuls, to your supermarkets and to your summer homes, until you will have no choice but to come home”. USA
In Rabbi Kahana’s opinion “the time for demonstrations, or letters to the authorities appealing for equal rights and protection is quickly passing by.”
“Among the 5-6 million Jews in the
today, there is not one who has the courage and the aptitude to do what” his brother did. USA
“Were [his brother] alive today he would be organizing response groups on every campus with bats, chains and other methods in real time against any anti-Semitic incidences”.
Well, the reality is that Meir Kahana, z”l, is no longer with us and his Jewish Defense League in the USA is not up to what, say the JDL in France has been doing. To no avail American college kids are literally taking a beating. But on the good side, we expect to see some of them soon...welcome home.*A sample:
