Mr. Elyakim Rubenstein
Reexamination of classification of the organizations "Kach" and "Kahane Chai" as terrorist organizations.
In the past, the organizations "Kach" and "Kahane Chai" were classified terrorist organization, among other things, as an extension of the decision of the Supreme Court that confirmed the invalidation of the "Kach" list headed by the late Rabbi Meir Kahane.
At the same time, the Supreme Court decided with a majority of three against two not to invalidate the list of MK Mohammed Miari. ›An examination of the explanation of the majority finds that all the red lines set by the Supreme Court regarding what an Arab list may and may not do have been crossed by the parties and MK's who are now openly acting for the end of the Jewish character of the State of Israel.
One can no longer accept the fact that those who act for the destruction of the Jewish state are acceptable while someone acting for the strengthening of the Jewishness of the state is barred from participating in the political game.
There is no justification that the Fatah organization, that sends murderers to attack civilians, among them Rabbi Kahane and his son who fell as a victim of terrorists, should be off of the list of terrorist organizations while the comrades of Meir and Binyamin Ze'ev Kahane are classified as a terrorist organization without having ever be caught organizing, instigating or carrying out a terror action.
Therefore, I would appreciate if you would reconsider the terror organization status attached to the "Kach"and "Kahane Chai" movements and cancel it.
