Have More Jewish Babies!

Rabbi Meir Kahane ZT’L HY’D

Jewish Press July 21, 1972

Among the reasons given by opponents of the argument to openly declare the territories liberated in June, 1967 as part of the Land of Israel, is the one that such a step would inundate Israel with Arabs and, with the passage of time, wipe away a Jewish majority and consequently a Jewish State. Such people point to the enormous disparity in the Arab and Jewish birthrate (the Arab is among the highest in the world and the Jewish is among the lowest) and declare that to make the West Bank or Gaza Arabs full citizens would be to see them become a majority with the passage of time.

I have been waiting for some time to find a suitable opening for an idea that, to me, is crucial in its importance, and this argument of opponents of “liberation” certainly gives it to me. In order to meet the challenges of the Arab birth rate AS WELL AS FOR OTHER VITAL REASONS, the time has come not to timidly retreat in face of it but to meet it with the sublimely simple answer of having Jewish babies.

I can think of few more urgent needs for the Jewish people than that of raising high the slogan of “pru u’rvu,” be fruitful and multiply. Multiply Jewish babies; let the Jewish population grow and be fruitful; let us produce Jews, Jews and more Jews. Less than thirty years ago the Holocaust ripped from us 6 million Jews, a third of the entire nation. Among them were millions of young people and children who, had they lived, by this time would have produced millions more. We lost, not only a vast quantity, but a vital quality. The smallest of peoples became smaller yet, the weakest, weaker yet.

Not only did we lose strength and bodies to keep alive the Jewish Nation but we also lost untold Jewish genius to give voice and reality to the Jewish message and heritage. All this came about because of the Holocaust.

And today, the Land of Israel stands under populated and in need of Jews. Jews to assure its majority in the land; Jews to man its guns and secure its existence; Jews to create its scholars and scientists and geniuses. We are woefully short of Jews and worse – woefully filled with the un-Jewish, “sophisticated” nonsense that calls for a low birthrate and less and less Jews, yet.

On the one hand, there is none like the Jew to be on the forefront of every cause, whether it is good for the Jew or not. And so, all over the “civilized” world we find Jews moaning over the population growth and smothering us with statistical “proof” that unless people limit their children to two or one or even zero, the world will end on June 12, 2163 when all people will be crushed as the last bit of free space is used up…

In any case, the Jew takes his place in the ranks of the sophisticates who sneer at the “cows” who give birth to many children, who remain enslaved to a family, who are shackled by medieval concepts of conjugal relations being for prosaic procreation rather than “glorious” orgasm. Children, in our sophisticated world, become dangerous enemies of civilization. They threaten the existence of the human species. They are a source of extinction of the human race and they must be strictly limited and, in the case of abortion, eliminated. Then and only then will the earth be freed of the specter of overpopulation and will Woman be able to reach her true creativity and greatness of potential.

My own feelings are that if the non-Jewish population of this earth feels the need to limit its growth that is certainly its own affair and more power to it. As for Jews, however, for once let us remain backward and unprogressive. For once, let us not be dazzled by the need to follow in the ranks of the non-Jews and to be “like all the other nations.” Let others abstain, limit and eliminate. For us, let the slogan be – Have Jewish Babies.

They killed a third of our people in the Holocaust and we lose countless each year through assimilation and intermarriage. The answer? Have more Jewish babies. How many? AT LEAST as many as the Arabs. The Jewish woman is limited and unfulfilled, hampered and oppressed by babies. The answer? Drop the sterile, depressing and suicidal Playboy concept of life and return to an understanding of what a beautiful thing the Jewish family life, center of woman’s and man’s existence, is; and have more Jewish babies.

The land of Israel stands today magnificent in size and opportunity. The moment has come to fill its empty fields and barren mountain sides, to close the gaps in its security and defense, to populate the land that is ours and that never dare be returned. How? By having Jewish babies and having them grow up to be men and women who will spit in the eyes of a world that thinks that it can wipe us out. In memory of the little babies who burned in Auschwitz let us have little babies in Jerusalem. To replace the little boys and girls who perished in Treblinka and Warsaw let us have strong little Jewish boys and girls in Tel Aviv and Hebron and Golan and Rafiah. Let us stand on Hitler’s symbolic grave and greet him daily with the news of another huge increase in Jews.

If India seeks to limit its growth, it is none if my business or that if any Jew. If China wishes to stop having children, Jewish lips should be sealed. If White Anglo Saxon Protestants or Afro-Americans or Irish Catholics want to push for Zero Population Growth, I believe in a policy of strict non-intervention. But as for Jews – let us be fruitful and multiply. There remains in the end, no more important and beautiful thing than yet another Jewish child, yet another Jewish wedding to produce many Jewish children, yet another little one who will laugh in the faces of Jewish enemies and say: You see, we continue to live.

Dear sir! do you know that in Israel most of families, who ready to have more children are living under poverty line and are feeding their children from thousands of charity funds.The childten in such families are undernourished and never have thire own clothes, only donated to the family. Believe me! I am a head of not for profit “Mother to Mother” financed by Christian people, because jews were not interested in poor population in Israel. First we need provide those, who already groving in the country, with decent upbringing. Do you know, that students of religious schools sometime go to bed hungry, I can give you a direct adress.Sorry, we need people who does things.Israeli bureacrasy is feeding millions to shachidim but not to Jewish children.The same with normative education and so on, so on.I am for doing, but not only talking.

“Make Jewish babies! Make Jewish babies!” Why is it that I never hear anyone shouting, “Make Jewish marriages healthier?”

D. Cohen California 26 March 2009

Maybe because Orthodox marriages are generally pretty strong, and secular ones are problematic just like among secular gentiles. If one does not compare his wife daily to as-seen-on-TV models, the marriage should work just fine.

‘To replace the little boys and girls who perished…’ -> are you joking? After one’s dog dies, one doesn’t get a new one for a long time because no dog can replace the old dog. People say that about DOGS. And you think you can replace CHILDREN? It is a horrible, horrible thing how some of my fellow Jews exploit the horrendous suffering of our parents and grandparents (some of whom are still alive today!) in the Holocaust to push for their own dubious agendas.

The slogan “Have more Jewish babies” is undoubtedly great. But first you should ask parents if they want more. What is bad if a couple ha sonloy one baby? And women DO want to work and have careers instaed of being cows as you call them and have more Jewish babies.

Attheaeldre Caldwell 22 March 2010

Some people say save fur, others say have more babies. But neither of them has ever thought befor esaying these things.

Ashan Caracas 22 March 2010

These Jews will be fake Jews if someone follows your advice. There should be harmony in relations and your approach destroys harmony as such. People are not machines for producing babies but creatures who are supposed to have somwe other interests in their lives.

Aster Castlerock 22 March 2010

It’s so easy to say have more Jewish children but where can parents get more money from to provide for more children? For Jews to have more Jewish children, the government should reconsider its policy of birth stimulating.

Riley Livonia 02 April 2010

Taking into account that Hamas investigations Goldstone provoked some time ago may lead to really disastrous consequences, how can people have enough courage to produce more children? Stability is what they need to follow this “wise” piece of advice.

Torra Lockwood_Valley 02 April 2010

This Rabbie calls Jews to have more children but wouldn’t he show some sympathy for children who’ve lost their parents or parent who’ve lost their children? The government says that Israel sends money to Haiti but these are only words. Can’t Rabbies finally show their power?

I wrote about this on a Jewish group on sex related site a few months ago and was greeted by hostility from a number of Jewish men and women. Sure, there was support. But, most were hostile. I’m Jewish and, personally, I think Jews need to get over themselves. This “quality not quantity” mentality is not only bigoted – as if Jews are of better “quality” than some other people – it’s also very inaccurate.

Jews are typically smart, yes. But in a democratic society, the number of votes count. In a non-democratic (and potentially hostile society) the numbers of people count. All the brains in the world aren’t going to save our asses when we’re outnumbered – both in terms of votes and bodies – 375 to 1.

Yes, ladies. We know it’s your body and no one can tell you what to do with it. Feminism has done a good job of brainwashing you. But, sometimes we’re all obligated to do what’s best for our community. You’re part of the Jewish community and it’s time to start making babies.

Guys, you’re smart, you work hard, and you make a lot of money. You don’t need a Mercedes or Porsche and you don’t need a 60″ flat screen when a 40″ will do. You can afford to make sacrifices for the Jewish community and support more kids.

The excuses aren’t working anymore. Stop feeling sorry for yourselves and start hitting the sheets.

Its only the Rabbis to blame for this one. Back in the days of the 12 Tribes & Moses we practiced “patrilineal” Judaism. We were a large nation and had lots of land and power. We will never be able to fulfill the “fruitful and multiply” commandment if we do not return to the true lineage laws of the Torah and the prophets of old. It was after we switched to “matrilineal” lineage that we breached the sacred passage of the Covenant from Father to Son and doomed our populations. Look at the Mormons and the Muslisms, they practice our religion better than we do…

Nikhil NewYork 28 September 2010

Why not allow more people from non Jewish backgrounds who feel a kinship with Hebrew roots to immigrate into the land of Israel. They would gladly help settle the land and not interfere with your rich customs and culture as the Arabs do. They would also gladly help defend the land of Israel against all who wish to see her demise. Though I cannot prove any Jewish roots in my family, my grandfather’s family has a Jewish last name and left Germany during the late 1800’s to escape persecution. Their immigration coincided with the beginning of the anti-Semitism that culminated in Nazi Germany. I feel a real kinship and love for Israel and think that if Israel were to allow more Ruths and Rahabs into the land she might see her population increase in a positive way.

Abigail: God gave this land to Jews only, who are we to discuss his commandments?
