In my introduction and as my username states I am a Kahanist, and a member of the Jewish Task Force, please allow me to explain what that is.

The Kahanist Movement is a group that follows the ideas of one Rabbi Kahane who was killed, because of his beliefs.

Below is a Biography of the man.

The Kahanist Movement. Blank

Rabbi Meir David Kahane - leader, philosopher, visionary, revolutionary,
scholar, warrior, activist, fighter, hero, rabbi, writer, speaker, Rosh
Yeshiva, father, grandfather, husband, teacher, author and statesman.
Rabbi Meir Kahane was born Aug. 1, 1932 (29th of Tamuz) and assassinated
Nov. 5, 1990 (18th of Heshvan 5750).
As a youth he was active in Betar. He met Jabotinsky, who was a guest at
his parents home, and a close friend of his father, Rabbi Charles Kahane.
Rabbi Kahane resided with his wife Libby in Jerusalem, Israel. They lived
there from the time that they immigrated to Israel from the U.S. with
their four children in 1971.
All of his children have been active in preparing and publishing his books,
writings and manuscripts along with his wife Libby. Before his youngest
son Binyamin Zev Kahane was murdered with his wife Talya on December
31, 2000 (May G-d avenge their blood), he headed the yeshiva founded
by his father and also served as the former director of the Kahane Chai
Rabbi Kahane received his smicha - ordination as Rabbi - from the world
famous Mirrer Yeshiva in Brooklyn, NY.
He earned an International Law degree from New York University.
Rabbi Kahane served as a pulpit Rabbi and teacher in NY in the early and
mid 1960's. During that time he also was one of the editors of the Jewish
Press, which was the biggest English speaking Jewish newspaper in the world.
He worked as a correspondent for the Jewish Press until his tragic death.
Rabbi Kahane was the author of many books on Judaism, Israel, Torah and politics.
He wrote books in English and in Hebrew.
Rabbi Kahane was well known for his electrifying speeches in Israel, on
U.S. campuses and in synagogues throughout the world. He was viewed as an
eloquent, dynamic spokesman and orator, appearing frequently on radio and
TV talk shows.
Rabbi Kahane founded the militant Jewish Defense League in 1968 to
combat the rampant growth of anti-Semitism in the inner cities. At
that time, the poor and elderly Jews were easy targets for Jew hating
thugs. Rabbi Kahane rescued these abandoned Jews and changed the image
of the weak and vulnerable Jew to one of a mighty fighter who strikes
back fiercely against tyrants. Jew-haters around the world soon began
to respect and fear the wrath and retribution of Kahane's Chaya Squad, a
group within the JDL, which succeeded in instilling fear
in the hearts of the would-be criminals against Jews.
The JDL went on to conquer other local issues and problems as well as
global Jewish problems. The JDL was the first group to really bring
world attention to the plight of Soviet Jewry. They did so by engaging in
unconventional and often violent tactics which succeeded in highlighting
the plight of millions of oppressed Jews, suffering behind the Iron
Curtain. The JDL succeeded in moving the issue off of the back pages and
on to the front pages, where it belonged. Kahane was the "Moses" for
Russian Jewry. It wasn't long before the major Jewish establishment
organizations were embarrassed and forced into action, after so many
years of apathy and indifference.
Russian Jews started to flow out by the hundreds of thousands, thanks to Rabbi
Kahane's dedication and vision. But as Rabbi Kahane said, "More than
what we did for Russian Jewry was what they did for the young and lost
American Jewish youth who finally had a Jewish cause to fight for, and
boy did they fight, without sleep and at a risk to their freedom they
did that which their parents never did for their Jewish brothers and
sisters who perished during the Holocaust."
Rabbi Kahane coined the phrase "Never Again" which did not mean that a
Holocaust could never happen. It meant that never again would Jews stand
idly by while their brothers cry out for their help.
Rabbi Kahane was jailed many times and was sentenced to prison terms for
his actions related to the campaign on behalf of Soviet Jews.
Other famous causes which Rabbi Kahane fought for included Jewish
identity and continuity. Far before the Jewish establishment realized
that there was a problem - Rabbi Kahane was demanding that Jewish
funds go for Jewish causes, primarily for Jewish education. He spoke out
against intermarriage and assimilation among Jewish youth. He saved
thousands of lost Jewish souls from spiritual destruction.
Aliyah to Israel was another key campaign launched by Rabbi Kahane. In
fact, he was assassinated lecturing at an emergency Z.E.E.R.O.
conference calling for the mass Aliyah of American Jewry. He directly
convinced hundreds of Jewish families to make Aliyah.
After Rabbi Kahane immigrated to Israel he formed the Kach movement. Kach
was most famous for its platform calling for the removal of the hostile
Arab population from Israel, the annexation of all of the territories
liberated in 1967, and to have the right of unlimited Jewish settlement
there. He believed that settling the land without removing the hostile
Arab enemies would be counter productive. He predicted autonomy and
retreat far before Likud ever signed the Camp David Accords and before
the Oslo Declaration of Principles were dreamed up.
Rabbi Kahane was despised by many for quoting Jewish sources about Jews
being a chosen nation and the exclusive owners of Eretz Israel. Many
hated him for pointing out the contradiction between authentic
Judaism and Western style democracy. "Judaism is not Thomas Jefferson and
the Middle East is not the Mid West, Kahane would say." Kahane made
"comfortable" Jews feel uncomfortable for forcing them to deal with the
painful truth and painful answers to problems they refused to think about.
Rabbi Kahane was jailed and imprisoned many times in Israel by both
Labor and Likud governments. Rabbi Kahane was the first Jew to be
held under administrative detention without charges or due process. He
was also the first Jew charged with sedition for his population
exchange proposal.
Rabbi Kahane also pioneered the campaign to save Syrian and Ethiopian
Jewry as well as the battle against cults and missionaries in the
Holy Land. Rabbi Kahane dreamed of creating an independent Israel which
would no longer fear the Gentiles. He dreamed of a state of Israel
that would sanctify G-d's name through Jewish power and faith in G-d.
Rabbi Kahane was elected to Knesset in 1984. He headed the
quickest growing party in Israel's history. Polls predicted him receiving
as many as 12 seats in the 1988 elections. If he would not have been
banned from participating in the elections he would have turned in to
the third largest party in Israel, on the way to becoming its next Prime
Minister. Likud and Labor joined together and banned Kahane from the
1988 elections.
Two years later, he was killed. Never in Israel's history was there a bigger
funeral. Never before did so many different types of Jews stand side by side
together. All of the enemies of Israel celebrated his death. Many of the
leftists in Israel happily predicted the death of Rabbi Kahane's yeshiva
and programs in editorials published in the Israeli press, shortly after his
death. Much to their amazement and disappointment, Rabbi Kahane's
yeshiva and programs lived on. Some have even grown and expanded despite
the governments continued harassment and the outlawing of the Kahanist

From Rabbi Kahanes work, a group was formed and iscalled the Jewish Task Force.
The Jewish Task Force (Hebrew: הימין האמיתי, HaYamin HaAmiti, lit. "The Real Right Wing") is a Kahanist organizationin the United States that raises money for the claimed purpose of funding radical right-wing Jewish groups in Israel,
puts on television programs through local-access cable and runs a
website with the stated goal of saving Israel, America, and The West. JTF is run by the former national chairman of the Jewish Defense League, Victor Vancier, who is also commonly known as Chaim Ben Pesach, and previously as Chaim Ben Yosef.
The group defines itself as "fighting to save America and Israel from Islamic terrorism."Unlike most Kahanist organizations, which take positions only on issues related to Israel, JTF also has an American agenda; it wishes to stop what it calls the "Third World invasion of America" and is against America becoming what it calls a "Third World banana republic". JTF's messages have also caused it to be condemned for alleged racism.

Source : wikipedia

As the above states JTF is a Ring Wing Jewish Group based in New York.

But it has expanded to cover Australia, New Zealand, Canada, and Europe.

The group is made of Jews and Gentiles, with the base aim of protecting the Jewish people.

Not everything JTF stands for I support, but the main efforts of helping to rid the world of anti semites in all forms, I support 100%.

Chaim is the man who runs JTF, and I have found very honest and fair individual, that honors the rights of people to have their own opinions.

And promotes respectful attitudes towards women.

And promotes the fight against terrorism.

Thanks for sharing this, I was not aware of the this organization. After what I've read I think I agree with your stance behind them, and pray it is enough, but we know HaShem has his plans.........
