Meir David Kahane is one of the two victims of the terrorist gun attack that occurred in Huwara on Tuesday night.
After receiving treatment during the night at the Beilinson hospital in Petah Tikva, Kahane was declared better and released.
Rabbi Binyamin and Talia Kahane’s son, Kahane, was shot and killed in a shooting near Ofra 23 years ago. Rabbi Meir Kahane, the creator of the Jewish Defense League and the Kach organization, was assassinated by a terrorist in New York City in 1990.
Rabbi Binyamin Kahane was his son.
Achiad Libman, the second victim of the assault who was moderately hurt, is still in the hospital under constant medical observation.
Libman is the nephew of Eliyahu Libman, leader of the Kiryat Arba Local Council, and the son of Rabbi Yehuda Libman, head of the Pri Ha’aretz yeshiva in Rehelim.
Libman also comes from a grieving family; his uncle Shlomo Libman Hyd was killed in a terrorist shooting in Yitzhar in 1998 while studying Torah, and his name, Achiad (my brother forever), honors his father’s brother.
The miracle that occurred to his son was described by Rabbi Libman. “To us, a huge miracle occurred.
“Our 25-year-old son was traveling with a friend to a Yishai Ribo concert in Har Bracha, and we thank G-d for his kindness,” he wrote.
They were ambushed by vile terrorists as they passed through Huwara on their route. Several dozen shots were fired at the car, but thankfully just a few glass splinter injuries were sustained by the two.
It is intolerable and acceptable that a corridor of hundreds of meters has turned into a bloody range of sitting ducks for the locals and military.
“We demand that all ranks of the defense establishment launch a widespread military operation in all of Judea and Samaria, a complete blockade of the cities, to subdue terror and gather arms,” the wounded victim’s father continued.
