  • Description

    A group of American Jewish businessmen, backed by Jewish Defence League leader Rabbi Neir Kahane, gave a press conference in Tel Aviv today at which they put forward a radical solution to ensure that Jews remain in the majority in Israel: export Arabs. The group, which claims to have big financial backing in the US, wants to offer Israeli Arabs one way tickets, jobs, homes and "dream cars" in such western societies as the US, Europe, Canada and Australia. Rabbi Kahane told journalists he felt it was more important for Jews to give money to this cause -- that is, to get rid of the Arabs -- than to give to the United Jewish Appeal. He described the Arabs of Israel as a serious, a difficult problem, which, if no dealt with, would result in "blood in the streets of Israel." Kahane also attacked the forthcoming visit to Israel ( in February ) of UN chief Kurt Waldheim. "We don't want him here," he said. "Nothing but evil" could come from a UN presence in the Middle East and Waldheim represented all that was evil in the UN. Our theme will be 'Waldheim go home. He said they would do everything they could to make his visit a most unpleasant one. He hopes Jews with gather in large numbers to demonstrate block the road to the airport and show the UN and the world how we think.
