Joey, I know you ran two unsucessful bids to be the republican representative of your district but maybe you can be McCains new mascot Joe “the terrorist supporting Kahanist.”
Joey “Kahane” Kaufman says in reply to my exposing his terrorist connections:
I’ll say it again, in clear terms. I am not a follower of Kahane, nor have I ever supported any of the groups he is affiliated with. That includes Kahane Chai, Kach and the JDL. Your articles calling me a Kahanist are lies.
But what is not a lie is that you have been involved in a group that has direct ties to Hamas, that being CAIR. What is not a lie is that CAIR is currently named as a co-conspirator for a federal trial in Dallas, Texas dealing with the financing of millions of dollars to Hamas.
What is not a lie is that you have used your blog to defend Al-Qaeda terrorist Aafia Siddiqui, and you have called co-conspirator of the HLF trial Jamal Said “an esteemed local Imam.”
It was the U.S. Justice Department that named CAIR and Jamal Said as co-conspirators, albeit “unindicted co-conspirators,” not me. You are upset that I speak out against groups like CAIR and ISNA, but why shouldn’t I, when the U.S. government is making the clear case that these groups are involved in nefarious activities?
But that’s why you and a number of CAIR ops mention Kahane with me – to discredit me.
Those are not lies. They are facts. And of course, there are many more that I did not list, such as your support for co-conspirator Siraj Wahhaj and Tariq Ramadan, who has been locked out of the U.S.
But what you wrote is unambiguously a lie.
Joey, you are an unrepentant follower of Kahane as your attempts at deflection, projection and ad hominem attacks in your reply clearly reveals. You seem to revel in hypocrisy and lies, but you aren’t even good at that. The evidence stands for it self.
It is clear that you can’t bring yourself to condemn a terrorist such as Kahane and his organization. You eulogized him after his death! Someone who advocated genocide, who advocated a Biblical theocracy through violence, who called for the expulsion of all Palestinians from not only Israel but the Palestinian territories by force – you saw the need to eulogize and extol.
Let us further analyze the article you wrote in praise of Kahane. The article itself was titled “A Kahane Legacy Lost” which doesn’t indicate disapproval but rather support. It sounds like a sense of sadness and despair at the passing of one of the vilest demagogues of the 20th century, the same as if some one were to eulogize a white supremacist. In it you describe your admiration for Kahane as you state:
“I never did get that chance to see him, though. He was murdered seventeen days before the event…I recall seeing one of my fellow JSU members crying, after hearing about this. I couldn’t believe that a person that I knew so little about…could elicit such feelings in someone… at least someone that wasn’t related or even a friend of the family! But I soon learned otherwise, as I watched the film that was shown in Kahane’s place. It was a film of a speech that he had given previously, and I cannot describe to you properly just how moving it was!” (Emphasis added) (“A Kahane Legacy Lost,” JDL Forums)
This wasn’t terribly long ago Joey as you yourself posted this Jan 2, 2001 on the discussion forum for the terrorist organization JDL. (more…)
