Rabbi Meir Kahane was tragically killed on November 5, 1990 , Kahane died at the age of 58 ,
He was 58 , November 5, 1990 was on a Monday, it was on a Monday that Meir Kahane was killed,
It was on a Monday that Meir Kahane died, anyone can look up online that November 5, 1990 was on a
Monday, see the website, , and we fans of Garfield the cat all know, that
Garfield the cat always says "I Hate Mondays" Garfield hates Mondays, and while Garfield the cat is just a fictional cartoon character , but if Garfield was real , he would really hate the Monday, that was
Monday November 5, 1990, the day of Infamy, when Rabbi Meir Kahane was tragically assassinated in
Manhattan, New York City, after giving a speech at night , heck if they were real, Garfield the cat, Jon Arbuckle his owner, Odie the dumb lovable friendly dog and the whole Garfield gang would be very sad hearing about the death of Rabbi Meir Kahane , The Garfield comic Strip & Garfield Franchise was created in 1978 , so it's possible that Meir Kahane might have even been a secret Garfield Fan !!! Meir Kahane loved baseball, and he was a big sports fan !!!

Some people have said, the late Brooklyn born Rabbi Meir Kahane was controversial, but he was truly
The Big Kahuna, Kahuna Kahane, Krazy for Kahane , it's Kahane Time, People have said about Meir Kahane, Meir Kahane: The Man, The Myth, The Legend, several years ago I worked with a guy whose first name was Meir, very funny guy, Also some have jokingly called the 1982 Film, Star Trek II: The Wrath of Khan,
The Wrath of Kahane, as in Meir Kahane !!! Of course they are not saying Meir Kahane as evil like the fictional
villain of Khan, it's just a joke some people made up,
Also, on a more serious note,
Some Christian Star Trek Fans have said that the Music in Star Trek II: The Wrath of Khan is very sad, moving & Epic, that it reminds them of the Nazi Holocaust of World War II, the sadness & Tragedy of the Holocaust, It was Truly Satanic, Hitler and the Nazi's tried to Eliminate a entire race of People from the Face of the Earth, in total 11 Million People were Killed, the sad Music in the Opening of the Movie where we see the Opening Credits then the words
"In the 23rd Century..." appear on the Screen, other sad Music in
Star Trek II: The Wrath of Khan that reminds people of the Holocaust is near the end of the film where
Kirk lures the Reliant into the Mutara Nebula
Spock:They are reducing speed
Kirk says to Uhura -
"Uhura,patch me in "
Uhura: Aye Sir, Your'e on Admiral
Kirk then says to Khan
"This is Admiral Kirk, we tried it once your way Khan are you game for a rematch? Khan! I'm laughing at the superior intellect" After World War II, Countless Christians & Jews have said Never Forget & Never Again
