Kahane Comics

Kikar Shabbat has images from a comic book geared toward the young to teach about the life and ideology of R' Meir Kahane ZT"L.

Some of the parts that were interesting to me:
  • R' Shlomo Zalman Auerbach ZT"L holding his clenched fist up in the air, supporting R' Kahane.  (The comments on the article said that this was documented in a book and that this was Rav Auerbach's known view.)
  • R' Mordechai Eliyahu ZT"L giving a Hesped praising him at his funeral.
  • R' Meir Yehuda Getz ZT"L (the former rabbi of the Kotel) saying that he had a dream that Mashiah Ben Yosef was murdered in the USA, and he couldn't sleep that night.  In the morning, he heard on the news that Rav Kahane was murdered.

I sure miss Rav Getz, zatz"l, a very special Jew, as are all the Tzadikim you've mentioned. However, wasn't Rav Kahane a kohen? Can he then be M. ben Yosef? He sure fit the bill, fighting for Am Israel, but the kohen part negates the possibility, I thought.

Although you seem to be correct, read this post on Geulah Perspectives (which I commented on, but Ari replied to).

Thanks for the link Yaak.

I was at the funeral and Rav Eliyahu praised him greatly in his hesped. He mentioned great acts of charity that Rav Kahane did, an aspect of his character that is not well known.
