This article examines two decisions of the Israeli Supreme Court and one of a United States federal court. All three cases pose legal challenges raised by political activist Meir Kahane, the American born founder of the Jewish Defense League and of Israel's rightist Kach Party. As an activist at home on both sides of the ocean, Kahane presented legal and political challenges to two democracies and two sets of national judiciaries.
