HIGH YIELD &
INSTANT LIQUIDITY

Rivera, pictures of his
broken nose later splashed
across the front pages of
supermarket tabloids, had
invited Levy and several
skinheads to appear on the
program "Geraldo." A fight
ensued and a chair was
smashed across Rivera's
face.
Levy, who in 1984 told
Idaho Jews they should
shoot to kill if the Church of
Jesus Christ Christian
(Aryan Nations) attacked
their synagogues, insists he
does not support violence,
just self-defense.
As to whether his words
and actions might not incite
violence, Levy says only,
"Sometimes you have to
make trouble to stop
trouble" and "we'll do
anything to save Jewish
lives.
"Would it have been moral
to kill Hitler? Any Jew with
common sense knows the
answer."
Levy's pronouncement
that he would bring "50
tough Jews" for a "death to
the Klan rally" in Trenton,
N.J., in the mid-1980s is an
example of his approach to
self-defense. He said he was
"predicting violence, not in-
citing it," should the KKK
hold a proposed political ral-
ly.
As in previous cases when
his warnings cancelled
scheduled KKK demonstra-
tions, Levy won out in Tren-
ton. New Jersey KICK leader
Richard Bondira said he
decided not to hold the rally
when he learned of "a
lunatic fringe that is trying
to turn this Trenton rally
into a bloodbath." He told a
Trenton paper that JDO
members are "low IQ, sub-
Neanderthal types."
Levy, who says the JDO is
funded through donations,
many of which come from
Holocaust survivors, be-
lieves many of the Jews who
don't support him simply
don't know him.
"Not all Jews agree with
us . . . yet," he says.
Usually, he begins by tell-
ing the unenlightened about
the JDO's work defending
synagogues. "First you get
them to agree to our pur-
pose; next you get them in-
volved," he says.
Levy, whose heroes were
the men and women of the
Warsaw Ghetto Uprising,
plans to start more JDO
chapters across the country.
"When most Jews are hit
they ask, 'What did I do to
deserve this?"' Levy says.
"That's why we're different.
When we're hit, we hit back.
There's a new Jew in
town." ❑
