Meir Kahane

Martin David Kahane (/kəˈhɑːnə/; August 1, 1932 – November 5, 1990), also known as Meir Kahane (Hebrew: הרב מאיר דוד כהנא‎), was an American-Israeli rabbi and ultra-nationalist writer and political figure, whose work became either the direct or indirect foundation of most modern Jewish militant and extreme right-wing political groups.
