KIRKUS REVIEW

The Fuehrer of the Jewish Defense League provides a detailed history of his young commandos in action: spray-painting the offices of TASS, breaking up Soviet art exhibits with ammonia-fume-filled bottles and stink bombs, assaulting Sol Hurok, rioting outside the Soviet Embassy. No more ""nice Irvingism""! Told that he was endangering the Soviet-American detente, the Rabbi chuckled ""that was just what the JDL was aiming at!"" Dedicating his book to the renegades and traitors of Judaism--the American Jewish Congress, B'nai B'rith, the Anti-Defamation League--Kahane explains that it's not just random hooliganism, it's part of a ""political program"" and he will slay right in the thick of the fray, spurring his young stormtroopers on to greater glory. And it's not only Soviet Jewry that's under attack, have you checked out Brooklyn? At a New York high school a while back Kahane outlined his plans for ""Every Jew a .22."" How else can the young be protected against black racism? How else can Jewish identity be saved? ACHTUNG!
