JERUSALEM — As I review the
year since 26,000 Israelis voted
that I be their Knesset representa-
tive, I am overwhelmed, even as
the polls show a dramatic increase
in my strength, Iv the sheer mag-
nitude of the frenzied hatred of the
liberal-intellectual mob. Old witch
hunters never die. They return in
the form of Israeli and American
Jewish liberals, news media
people, politicians, intellectuals,
Reform rabbis and presidents of
Jewish organizations.
"Racist," "fascist," "insane,"
were among the kinder epithets
All this, of course, from people who
pride themselves on fair play and
tolerance.
Why the eruption of such
poisonous hate on the part of
civilized types? Why McCarthyism
in the Holy Land and in the United
States Jewish community? The
answer surely lies in the issues
that I raise and, more importantly,
in the incredible refusal of anyone
to deal with them.
One: I have stated that there
exists a clear and present danger of
the Arabs of Israel becoming a
majority through their naturally
high birth rate and through the
democratic rights granted by Is-
rael's Declaration of Indepen-
dence.
On the other hand, I have said,
the State of Israel was created by
Jews, Zionists, as the Jewish state,
and this can mean by definition
only one thing: a state with a
guaranteed majority of Jews. Only
this assures Jewish sovereignty,
and Jews mastery over their own
destiny. But if that is so, what does
one do with Western democracy
and its axiom of majority rule? The
terribly painful question for the
Jewish democrats is: Do Arabs
have the democratic right to be-
come a majority peacefully and
then peacefully put an end to the
Jewish state? Is there a basic con-
tradiction between Zionism and
Western democracy?
I have stated flatly that such a
contradiction exists and that Jews
must choose Judaism and Zionism
over Western democracy. But I
there a Jewish leader prepared to
debate this calmly and rationally?
No, for with my demand that a
choice be made I have touched
upon a most sensitive nerve in the
modern, Westernized Jew who de-
arly wishes to believe there is no
contradiction. Having shielded
himself from the truth, he lashes
out like some wounded animal in
terror.

Two: What kind of liberal mind
is so contemptuous of Arabs that it
cannot understand that no Arabs
can ever happily accept living in
country that is officially called the
Jewish state; whose Law of Return
applies to Jews only; whose na-
tional land can be rented to Jews
alone; whose national anthem
speaks of "the soul of a Jew yearn-
ing"; whose Independence Day
celebrates Jewish victory and
Arab defeat; whose very essence,
down to the United Jewish Appeal
is Jewish? What kind of obtuse
tellectual cannot understand that
the Arab of what was once, in his
mind, "Palestine," believes that
the Jews of Israel are thieves?
And as the specter of Arab
nationalism rages into regular at-
tack, and bombs and grenades and
knives take Jewish lives in the
land that was supposed to be free of
all the suffering of the exile, who
among the opponents of
"Kahanism" will answer the Jew
who asks: Are we supposed to sit
quietly and allow our enemies to
sit with us, even as they murder us
and grow into a majority? What
insane servitude to "democracy"
and "morality" compels us to com-
mit national suicide?
Three: Concerning the emanci-
pation of Western European Jews
in the 19th Century, it has been
written that educated Jews of that
generation "genuinely believed
that their religion had always
taught universalist ethics, and the
general Jewish public was
genuinely astonished when it
realized that this was just not so."
True, right down to this day. The
liberal left fumes over Kahane's
contention that Jews and Gentiles
are separate and apart. But it is
Judaism that bars intermarriage,
proscribes intimacy and calls for a
total war against assimilation.
The Westernized, secular Jewish
liberal cannot bear it, for
"Kahanism" forces him to ask the
question: Why be Jewish at all?
Kahanism raises the reality of
secular, liberal Jewish bankruptcy
and schizophrenia of mind and
soul. The pain is too much, and so,
totally incapable of intellectual
debate, the liberals collapse into
the irrational defamation that is
the last refuge of those for whom
honest thought is too painful. ❑
