|Once a heroic and principled organization which brought about the liberation of over 1 million Jews from Soviet Russia - an exodus on a par with the Biblical one - the JDL is today a pathetic joke and fraud which supports both anti-American and anti-Israel causes|
On May 23, 2006, Israeli Bolshevik dictator Ehud Olmert addressed the United States Congress and met with President Bush. Olmert came to Washington to beg for support for his evil and suicidal plan to create an independent Hamas-PLO Muslim terrorist state in the heartland of Biblical Israel.
The same day, a number of Christians and Jews decided to organize a protest rally in Taft Park near the White House.
|On May 23, 2006, Ehud Olmert came to Washington begging for the creation of an independent Hamas-PLO terrorist state in the heartland of Biblical Israel|
The organizers invited Jewish Task Force National Chairman Chaim Ben Pesach to address the rally, which is logical since JTF is the only U.S. organization that supports the Hilltop Youth, who are the backbone of the anti-surrender movement in Judea and Samaria.
To understand what happened at the rally, we first have to understand what happened to the once great organization known as the Jewish Defense League (JDL).
The JDL was created by the greatest Jewish leader in modern history, HaRav (The Rabbi) Meir Kahane, zecher tzadik livracha (may the memory of this saint be immortalized).
|Rabbi Meir Kahane, the greatest Jewish leader in modern history - His assassination in 1990 was Al Qaeda's first Islamic terrorist attack|
|Rabbi Kahane’s words are just as true today as they were decades ago - The Arabs of Israel must be removed from the Jewish homeland, he said, lest they become a deadly power controlled by Muslim terrorist leaders - like the newly elected Hamas government - dedicated to bringing about a new Holocaust|
In 1969, JDL initiated a campaign to liberate the 2 million Jews who were being held hostage in the Soviet Union. The vast majority of Soviet Jews wanted to emigrate, but the Kremlin Nazi dictators would not let them leave the country.
In 1971, at the age of 14, Chaim Ben Pesach joined the JDL and immediately became involved in the Soviet Jewry campaign.
Eventually, Rabbi Kahane appointed Ben Pesach as National Chairman of the JDL.
Rabbi Kahane and Ben Pesach launched an historic and miraculous campaign that led to over 1 million Russian Jews immigrating to the State of Israel.
The JDL bombed Soviet diplomatic targets in New York and Washington. As a result of the bombings, the long ignored issue of Soviet Jewry was suddenly the number one news story on television and radio, and the headline story on the front pages of newspapers throughout the world.
The climax of the Soviet Jewry struggle came on September 2, 1986 when the Soviet Moiseyev ballet concert at Lincoln Center in New York City was teargassed by Ben Pesach and the JDL.
Over 50 Soviet diplomats and performers who attended the concert were overcome by the teargas and had to be hospitalized overnight.
The Soviet ambassador to the United Nations in New York and the Soviet ambassador to the United States in Washington were both among the over 50 Soviets who were temporarily injured and who had to be hospitalized after inhaling the teargas.

This naturally became a huge international incident that severely damaged Soviet-American relations. The Soviets realized that if they continued to hold Russian Jews hostage, it would seriously jeopardize their relations with the United States.
The Lincoln Center teargas attack was the key historic turning point that forced the Soviets to free Russian Jews. Shortly after the attack, the Soviets announced that for the first time since the Bolshevik revolution of 1917, all Jews would be allowed to leave.
And indeed, hundreds of thousands of Russian Jews left for Israel in the most momentous and spectacular liberation since the exodus of Jews from ancient Egypt.
But Chaim Ben Pesach, who led the campaign, was eventually indicted and convicted of being responsible for the bombings of Soviet targets and for the teargas attack at Lincoln Center. Ben Pesach served five and a half years in federal prison, and then was on probation or house arrest or other forms of supervision for an additional 12 years.
In 1990, Rabbi Kahane was murdered by the same Al Qaeda Muslim Nazi terrorists who later bombed the World Trade Center the first time in 1993.
After Rabbi Kahane's murder, while Ben Pesach was still in prison, evil traitors took over the JDL.
Rabbi Kahane and Ben Pesach made the name "JDL" world-famous. Many Jews - and even more Gentiles - correctly associated the JDL with leading a heroic, noble and historic struggle to redeem the Jewish people.
The name "JDL" was now worth both money and fame.
The JDL was taken over by evil opportunists who never played any role in making the JDL famous, and who never did anything for the Jewish people in any area.
The traitor Irv Rubin took over the JDL in Los Angeles. Among his numerous acts of treason:
* Rubin condemned the JDL bombings and teargassings on behalf of Soviet Jewry, calling them "Jewish terrorism." On national television, Rubin condemned Ben Pesach and the JDL during the height of the JDL campaign, thereby undermining the effort to save the lives of Russian Jews.
* Rubin told the Village Voice that he "would not sit shiva if Rabbi Kahane dropped dead." Which means that he would not mourn Rabbi Kahane's death. Rubin condemned Rabbi Kahane as a "racist" and a "terrorist."
* On the Merv Griffin Show, before a television audience of 30 million viewers, Rubin said that American hero Jonathan Pollard deserved the death penalty. Rubin's vicious remarks seriously undermined the campaign to free Pollard. When even a JDL leader says that Pollard should be killed, it greatly strengthens the arguments of anti-Semites who demand that Pollard should never be freed.
|The late Irv Rubin was an evil man who never did anything to make the JDL famous, and who never did anything for the Jewish people - Rubin condemned Rabbi Kahane as a "racist" and "terrorist," condemned JDL bombings on behalf of Soviet Jewry as "Jewish terrorism," and called on national television for American hero Jonathan Pollard to receive the death penalty|
|Irv Rubin’s wife Shelley continues to play the same “schtick” as her late husband, supporting causes - like “civil rights” and Southern white-bashing - which invariably harm the Jewish people, but which also make her the darling of rich, left-wing, self-hating Jews like those of Beverly Hills and Manhattan's Upper West Side - Shelley Rubin warned Jews on the web site of the so-called JDL that because Israeli Bolshevik dictator Ariel Sharon was "democratically elected," they should not oppose his evil anti-Semitic expulsion and surrender of sacred Jewish land in the Gaza District and northern Samaria|
Rubin's "philosophy" was simple: do whatever is popular to bring in the most money from the self-hating Jews of Hollywood and Beverly Hills.
After September 11, 2001, Rubin felt that a violent attack on Arabs in America would be popular. So he was arrested for conspiring to carry out such an attack.
While in jail awaiting trial, Rubin committed suicide. He lived a highly pampered life before his arrest, and he could not bear the thought of spending years behind bars. So he killed himself.
Rubin's successors in the JDL were just as evil as he was. Indeed, they fully supported him when he was the leader, and after he committed suicide, they intended to continue his treasonous actions.
|Irv Rubin and co-conspirator Earl Krugel at a pre-trial hearing in Los Angeles - A treacherous informer who ratted on his fellow Jews in the Alex Odeh assassination investigation, Krugel received a 20-year prison sentence; after only three days in a federal penitentiary, he was murdered by a fellow inmate. (Odeh, an Arab Muslim living in California, was killed by a bomb after becoming an outspoken apologist for Arab Muslim terrorism in Israel.)|
It was these evil successors who interrupted Chaim Ben Pesach's speech at the Washington rally. However, their traitorous behavior backfired and good things came out of the rally despite their evil intentions.
|"Good Jews," according to the so-called JDL - Among the Jewish Image Award winners on the JDL web site - wealthy potential contributors to the JDL, honored for what it calls their "Jewishness" and contributions - are foul-mouthed radio shock jock Howard Stern (who has been in therapy for over twenty years and who started his career with jokes about the gas chambers and ovens of the Holocast) and grotesque (but wealthy) "feminist" comedienne Roseanne Barr. (Shown admiring a photograph of himself dressed in drag on the cover of his autobiography, Stern is known for his rendition of "F**tman," a scatological super hero, and for drooling, like the repressed adolescent that he is, over the artificially inflated breasts of the "adult film stars" who are his frequent talk show guests; Barr is infamous for an obscene 1990 rendition of the Star Spangled Banner at a baseball game, a vulgar performance which even the elder President Bush called disgraceful. Barr sarcastically "apologized" for the desecration of her nation's anthem and flag by saying, "I was too hip for the room.")|
JTF supports the political activities of the Hilltop Youth, and therefore is not tax-deductible.
The Voice of Jewish Activism (VJA) is strictly non-political. It supports the educational efforts and the humanitarian needs of the Hilltop Youth and right-wing Jewish dissidents and therefore is tax-deductible.
We need loyal, idealistic, Torah-true Jews to lead the struggle against the traitor Sharon's suicidal plan to create an independent PLO terrorist state in the heartland of Biblical Israel.
We have the Torah-true leaders and we have the thousands of young idealists. But they need more money to conduct such a huge and sophisticated campaign.
In the historic struggle for Israel's survival, this is the moment of truth.
Which is why we strongly urge our many loyal readers - both Jews
and righteous Gentiles - to immediately do the
following four things:
First, if you are a wealthy Jew or a wealthy righteous Gentile, and you have wealthy friends and associates, you can hold a fundraising party for JTF (which is political but not tax-deductible) or VJA (which is tax-deductible and non-political). Even if you are not wealthy - but have wealthy friends and associates - you can organize a fundraising party. If you are interested, please contact us.
Second, make out a generous check or money order (which can be anonymous) to "JTF" or "VJA" and send it out right away. If you prefer, you can also mail a cash donation.
Third, zealously spread the word about the jtfarchive.org web site. Posting portions of jtfarchive.org on popular internet message boards is especially effective. We do get many new hits when we are posted.
Fourth, please remember to include the "Jewish Task Force (JTF)" and/or the "Voice of Jewish Activism (VJA)" in your will.
