The False Prophet Summary


The False Prophet: Life and Times of Rabbi Meir Kahane by Robert I. Friedman

Rabbi Meir Kahane's career is as unorthodox as it is controversial. In the 1960s, in America, he worked for the FBI as an undercover informant, penetrating radical political groups, and for the CIA, promoting the Vietnam War. In 1968 he founded the Jewish Defense League, ostensibly to defend poor working class Jews but, in reality, backed by several government agencies, to resist emerging black militancy in New York. But the JDL soon shifted gear and began an often violent campaign to publicize the plight of Soviet Jews. More recently in Israel, Kahane's campaign to expel the country's Arabs has rapidly gained ground, fuelled by the passions unleashed by the "intifada". This book exposes a warrior-priest who thrives on the tensions generated by racial and political upheaval. It provides a looking glass into the dark side of Israel's soul.
