The World

A federal judge ruled that Brooklyn-born Rabbi Meir Kahane can travel to the United States from Israel for a speaking tour while he seeks reinstatement of his U.S. citizenship. U.S. District Judge Barrington D. Parker ordered the State Department not to interfere with Kahane’s plan to enter the United States early today to begin a three-week speaking tour at a suburban Washington synagogue. At a hearing before the judge, Kahane’s attorney argued that the founder of the militant Jewish Defense League had renounced his citizenship only to retain his seat in the Knesset, the Israeli Parliament.
