Rabbi Meir Kahane in debate with a Congressman Pete McCloskey

Paul Norton "Pete" McCloskey Jr. (born September 29, 1927) is a former Republican politician from the U.S. state of California who served in the U.S. House of Representatives from 1967 to 1983. He ran on an anti-war platform for the Republican nomination for President in 1972 but was defeated by incumbent President Richard Nixon. [1] In April 2007, McCloskey switched his affiliation to the Democratic Party.

Rabbi Meir David Kahane - leader, philosopher, visionary, revolutionary, scholar, warrior, activist, fighter, hero, rabbi, writer, speaker, Rosh Yeshiva, father, grandfather, husband, teacher, author and statesman. Rabbi Meir Kahane was born Aug. 1, 1932 (29th of Tamuz) and assassinated Nov. 5, 1990 (18th of Heshvan 5750).

As a youth he was active in Betar. He met Jabotinsky, who was a guest at his parents home, and a close friend of his father, Rabbi Charles Kahane. Rabbi Kahane resided with his wife Libby in Jerusalem, Israel. They lived there from the time that they immigrated to Israel from the U.S. with their four children in 1971.

All of his children have been active in preparing and publishing his books, writings and manuscripts along with his wife Libby. Before his youngest son Binyamin Zev Kahane was murdered with his wife Talya on December 31, 2000 (May G-d avenge their blood), he headed the yeshiva founded by his father and also served as the former director of the Kahane Chai Movement.
Rabbi Kahane received his smicha - ordination as Rabbi - from the world famous Mirrer Yeshiva in Brooklyn, NY.

He earned an International Law degree from New York University.

Rabbi Kahane founded the militant Jewish Defense League in 1968 to combat the rampant growth of anti-Semitism in the inner cities. At that time, the poor and elderly Jews were easy targets for Jew hating thugs. Rabbi Kahane rescued these abandoned Jews and changed the image of the weak and vulnerable Jew to one of a mighty fighter who strikes back fiercely against tyrants.
