Orthodox Rabbi Condemns Recent Israeli Atrocity in Gaza
November 10, 2006
Rabbi Yisroel Dovid Weiss, spokesman for Neturei Karta International, a world wide organization of anti - Zionist Orthodox Jews, has issued a “passionate condemnation of the latest Israeli atrocities in Bait Hanun, Gaza.” The Rabbi called the “recent shelling deaths of so many innocent Palestinians a horrific act.” He posited that “this is only the most recent example of the sixty year toll of human suffering created by the Zionist enterprise in the Middle East.”
The Rabbi representing the perspective of Torah true Jewry, declared that “Zionism is a fundamentally heretical movement which denies the Divine imperative that Jews remain in exile until the day when all mankind will be miraculously redeemed.” He pointed out that the Talmud had foretold massive suffering in the event that the “Almighty’s plan for our exile will be defied.” May the Almighty protect us all.
“The terrible oppression of the Palestinian people is yet another example of the awful consequences of Zionism. This is a movement that disregards the Jewish faith and its teachings on every area of life, including its commandment that we seek peace and justice towards all people.”
The Rabbi added that, “It is great embarrassment to us that the Palestinians have suffered so much for so long at the hands of those who masquerade as representatives of the Jewish people. They are impostors. Torah true Jews the world over, would never lift a hand against any other human being. ”
The Rabbi extended his prayer that “the day should soon arrive when the Zionist enterprise – the State of “Israel” - will be peacefully dismantled and Jews and their Palestinian neighbors will live together in a Palestinian state in peace. Ultimately the world should merit to see the glory of the Creator excepted by all. AMEN”http://www.nkusa.org/activities/Statements/2006Nov10.cfm
