1. Such is life: some of my (in theory) 'enemies" are my best
political friends.
No doubt, that for people like Marzel, Ben Gvir, Ben Ari, someone like me, though firmly patriotic and "rightist", but at the same time fanatically atheistic, is a person they would like to disappear from the scene of the Israel they're dreaming of.
On the other hand, the 'inclusive', leftist bunch, would make damn sure, that this whole experiment we call Jewish State would surely disappear from the face of the Earth.
I'll take my chances with the religious nuts then.....
2. this country is full of warmongers
ex Oleh Chadash   (02.21.19)
both from Palestinian side and from Jewish side.
3. None of Kahane's opponents debated him on real issues...
Chaim ,   Israel   (02.21.19)
The late Rabbi Kahane's opponents slandered him, libeled him, demonized him...But they never actually debated issues with him. The reason is because Kahane was obviously, demonstrably correct on crucial issues. The truth literally screams at us in from the Knesset to the streets in the words of Tibi and most Israeli Arab leaders. Virtually every one of Kahane's predictions from the 1970s has either come true or is coming true. Many years after his death, Kahane's opponents STILL can't debate the issues.

WHATS THE DIFFERANCE? As a blood-Shas voter, i have endured the erosion of our deterrence, now worsened, with girlie tank crew, a venamous anti-religous anti patriotic T.V and courts system, our disasterous pensions rescued by a meretz idiot for Foreign minister, does it really matter to my agenda, , if Bibi's new government suffers from a right-wing pull?
6. Most of these accusations
Murrey Bernstein ,   Israel   (02.21.19)
can be hurled at "mainstream Zionist" parties as well. Indeed, many of Israel's enemies do, in fact, make some of these very same accusations. As for "terrorists" becoming politicians, nearly the entire first generation of Israeli political leaders for the first few years of the state -- were former "terrorists" -- fighers of the Hagana, Etzel, and Lehi who battled the British "occupation." I guess what goes around comes around....
7. Right-wing parties are supported by
Alexander Scheiner ,   Israel   (02.21.19)
disgusting political PR strategists. Among them Arthur Finkelstein,, and others on the payroll of extreme right US and Jewish think tanks.
They are extreme rightists, in my opinion closer to the KKK than to Zionism, but united by being members of a network of fags.

Their strategy is to demonize and defame political opponents and to present well fabricated lies to the Israeli public.

8. Ugly Hypocrite
Lorraine   (02.21.19)
Kahane certainly promoted the idea of no intermarriage or sexual relations between Jews and non-Jews--which he did in a vilely racist manner, followed today by his thuggish heirs. Of course, such notions did not stop Kahane from such relationships. He carried on an affair with a young non-Jewish woman in New York, while already married to his Jewish wife and the father of children. The young non-Jewish woman killed herself by jumping from a bridge (age 22) when Kahane was finally forced to reveal that he couldn't marry her--see or google "Remembering Kahane, and the Woman on the Bridge" in the New York Times, March 6, 1994. So much for his holy Judaism.
9. Not true !!!
Usher   (02.22.19)
They are not racists at all
10. "Kahane had his flaws, but he was a great leader"
Bertram ,   London, UK.   (02.23.19)
I guess that's true, in the same way Hitler had his flaws but he was a great leader who gave back to the German people a sense of pride. What is more, Mussolini got the trains to run on time.
11. anti Arab is in halacha is out
jochairThijssen ,   Kfar Saba Israel   (02.23.19)
A little negative on otzma, but wait for elections.
12. the shameless right-wing populism of PM Netanyahu
Alexander Scheiner ,   Israel   (02.24.19)
and his mob is an embarassement to Israel. The people of Israel deserve better political leaders. We require a fresh wind. Blue & White!

For Zion

Just ask yourself; would you buy a used car from any of the men in the photo?
