Abstract (Document Summary)

Rabbi [Meir Kahane], 58, a Brooklyn-born Israeli extremist who once served in the Israeli parliament, was pronounced dead at Bellevue Hospital, hospital spokesman Peter Schectman said. Rabbi Kahane had been shot in the neck, he said.

Shortly after 9 p.m., as Rabbi Kahane answered questions from the podium, a gunman who had sat through the speech stood up and fired twice at him from a distance of about 4 feet, Chief [Joseph Borrelli] said. Rabbi Kahane was hit once in the neck.

In September, Rabbi Kahane went on trial in Jerusalem on charges of disturbing public order for leading an anti-Arab rally after the stabbing deaths of two Israelis last year. Rabbi Kahane was also charged with sedition for calling Arabs "cancer spreading in our midst" during a separate incident.
