The Murder Of Binyamin Kahane
By Barry Chamish <
I am sending a brief message with premature information because of the murder of Harav Binyamin Kahane and his wife.
Over five years ago, I wrote in my book Traitors And Carpetbaggers In The Promised Land that a secret clause of Oslo consisted of a plan to remove Jews from their lands by eliminating religious and political leaders. The PLO were to do the shooting in coordination with the Israeli scum leading us to our doom. To that end, among others, two such leaders, Knesset Member, Rabbi Haim Drucksman and Miriam Ben Porat were targeted. Drucksman survived though his driver died of gunshot wounds. Ben Porat lost her husband and son.
I was planning to wait until I had more details but there is no time. I have been informed that the death of Knesset party leader, Rabbi Yitzhak Levy's daughter was a targeted murder as well. My informant notes; "If the plan was for a demoralizing terror attack in Jerusalem, the terrorists went about it all wrong. All they had to do was drive one more street to the crowded Mahane Yehuda market to make a spectacular display of bodies. The police told us they didn't because traffic was too heavy. Nonsense. Heavy traffic would have delayed the action by a few minutes and nothing more.
"Rabbi Levy's daughter had just moved to Jerusalem and the murderers knew her schedule and where to find her. There was nothing random about the bomb. There was no suicide bomber in the vehicle and the explosion was most likely radio-detonated. It was a hit against another religious leader made to look like an Arab attack. This is a planned campaign and who knows who will be next."
Next was Binyamin Kahane, a respected religious leader and son of Knesset Member, Rabbi Meir Kahane murdered in 1990, and his wife. The Israeli authorities arrested him earlier this year for incitement to shut him up. But he wouldn't be cowed into silence. Now, silent, he will be.

Binyamin Zev Kahane, the son of assassinated extreme right politician Meir Kahane, and his wife Talya were killed in a shooting attack by Palestinian gunmen south of the West Bank settlement of Ofra on Sunday.
Five of the couple's children who were travelling in the car were injured. One child, aged 4, is in serious condition, two sustained medium injuries and two were lightly wounded. They were hospitalized in Jerusalem's Hadassah Ein Kerem Hospital.
A Palestinian organization called The Intifada Martyrs claimed responsibility for shooting attack, the French news agency in Beirut reported Sunday.
After the gunmen opened fire on the car around 6.40 a.m., from the village of Ein Yabrud, the vehicle overturned and rolled down into a ravine. Kahane was killed immediately while his wife was critically wounded and died later of her injuries. The village is in Area B, which is under Israeli military control and Palestinian civilian rule, and is situated north of the West Bank city of Ramallah.
Rabbi Meir Kahane, the founder of the banned extremist Kach movement, was assassinated by an Arab gunmen in New York in November 1990. After his death his son set up "Kahane Chai" (Kahane Lives) with the aim of continuing his legacy, but the movement has been wracked by internal divisions.
Binyamin Kahane, who was in his early 30s, had been jailed several times for his anti-Arab activities.
The attack comes a day after the Fatah Party of Palestinian Authority Chairman Yasser Arafat called for an escalation of the Intifada uprising in the face of U.S. pressure on Arafat to accept a set of American bridging proposals for a framework peace deal.
Friends of Kahane called Sunday for revenge attacks on Arabs. "There is no difference between one Arab and another," far-right activist Noam Federman told Army Radio.
The Yesha Council of Jewish settlements blamed Prime Minister Ehud Barak and Foreign Minister Shlomo Ben-Ami for the attack, saying that they were continuing to negotiate under fire.
Ben-Ami fended off the attacks, saying that the government did not believe that it was right to act "only with the military arm." Talking on Israel Radio, he likened the situation in the West Bank and Gaza to Kosovo: "You have a situation of a population within a population," he said, "which has been created as a result of the settlements."
