Beyond Words
Selected Writings of Rabbi Meir Kahane,
Volume 7


Nothing can more decisively outline in stark detail the contrast and contradiction between authentic Judaism and the gentilized Hellenism that challenges it than the secular university.  The very basis of the university, with its concept of total academic freedom and open marketplace of ideas (and let us not, for the moment, discuss the fraud that this is in actuality), runs counter to Judaism with its absolute truths.

But even for those liberal and secular Jews who choose the university ideal over that of Judaism, what is happening at Hebrew University should be cause for deep soul-searching on the part of any contributor and supporter of that institution.  For I say, with absolute conviction, that Hebrew University (in common with other institutions of “higher learning” in Israel), more than any other single source, is the producer of the greatest danger to Israel’s body and soul . . .

In simple, basic language: the group that now represents the Arab students at Hebrew University, the 1,150 Arab students – all whom are Israeli citizens – who study at the Hebrew University, the 1,150 Israeli Arab students who study there thanks to Israeli taxpayers and, but more important, thanks to the American contributors to Hebrew University is a group that calls for the elimination of Israel and its replacement with “Palestine.”  That this should cause shock waves in Israel is yet one more cause for weeping and for appreciation of the massive damage done to the Jewish people and state by the news media of Israel.

. . . And the Jews pay for their destruction.  Every Jew who gives to American Friends of Hebrew University or Haifa University or Tel Aviv University pays for those Arab intellectuals who dream of leading the struggle to destroy the Jewish state.

And there is more.  There is more joy at Hebrew University.  More reason for suicidal Jews to write even bigger and better checks.  According to the weekly, Yerushalayim (published by Yediot Achronot), in its January 5, 1990 issue, Hebrew University Professor Ariel Rubinstein addressed a group of academics, economists and students recently at a forum of the Israel Economic Council.  And there he said:  “We have a special responsibility for the cynical use made by Israel of the tax structure in order to fight the Palestinian uprising.  As human beings and as Jews, we must recognize that the basic component of this uprising, the one that calls for freedom from our rule, is a most just one.”

In response to protests, the rector of the University, Yoram Ben-Porat, said: “Freedom of organization allows, too, political expression.”  Except, of course, for Meir Kahane. . . .

The question of freedom of expression is not the issue here.  What every Jew who, until now, has supported Hebrew University with funds should ask himself/herself. Is:

Should I support a university with professors who support our deadly enemies, and which include those who are anti-Zionists and who believe that a Jewish state by its very nature is racist . . . ?

Hebrew University allows Arabs to hold anti-Israel rallies.  It allows PLO supporters, such as Feisal Husseini and Hanna Siniora, to speak.  Leftists hold rallies on behalf of the “Palestinians,” who for 70 years have murdered Jews and who dream of the final holocaust.  Is that the kind of institution you wish to support or could you perhaps find a Jewish one?
“Body and Soul at Hebrew University”
K.M., January-February 1990, pp.32-34

The average Jewish youth in Israel is so devoid of Jewish knowledge as to challenge the “best” of the assimilated Jewish youth in the West.  The culture in the country is Western, rock and roll, hard rock, discos, drugs, drinking, sex before army service (much before army service), and the main thing is that life should be a kef (roughly, “a ball”).
“But, of Course,” ibid., p. 34

In country after country of the totalitarian world, large masses of people stand up to defy regimes that have a brutal past.  With little fear of the militias and secret police, hundreds of thousands of people demonstrate -  not because of any threat to their existence, but for democracy and civil rights.  And in Israel, where the danger is not from lack of basic rights necessarily. But to the very existence of the state, to the very survival of the Jew and his loved one – the people sit.

It goes beyond apathy.  It goes beyond apathy and indifference.  There is a kind of atrophy of the mind, a petrifaction of the soul, a mummification of the very basic instincts of survival.  There is a paralysis of self-defense, of the most fundamental and normal impulses of the human being.

The people sit in Israel, overcome by the noxious fumes of gentilized culture that babbles and “ethics” and “morality” on behalf of Moslem barbarians who seek to drink Jewish blood.  They are captives of a Hellenistic minority that, itself spiritually disturbed and possessed of an incurable insanity of the mind and soul, does its best to, daily, fill the people with guilt and abnormality.
“O L-rd, Let It Not Be Too Late,” K.M. January-February 1990 pp. 36-37
