Statements from Neturei Karta


World Zionist Rally against Syria is outright Chutzpah

For over half a century the Zionist state of Israel has followed a policy of dispossession, occupation and continuous brutalization of the Palestinian people. The suffering for Jews and Palestinians brought about by these actions boggle the mind of good people everywhere.

The primary issue today is not the incident of the capture of an IDF soldier. The root of the crisis and quagmire in the Middle East, though, is the ongoing forceful occupation and denial of Palestinian rights, especially as the world is watching in shock the last two weeks of sadistic collective military action against the long suffering people of Gaza.

The cause of the problem lies not in Syria. It is in the inability to understand that Zionism at its inception was a denial of the aspirations of the indigenous inhabitants of the Holy Land the Palestinian people and continues to be so today.

Judaism teaches righteousness and kindness to all of Almighty’s creatures. We are commanded in the Torah and Talmud to be humble, ethical people, seeking simply to live our life in exile among the nations in accordance with the Divine decree. Furthermore, in accordance with the above mentioned decree, we are expressly forbidden to attempt to leave exile and create our own entity, such as the State of “Israel”. Rather we must be loyal citizens in whichever country wherein we reside. These are iron clad rules commanded by the Divine creator not to be breached under any circumstance.

It is a return to this ancient agenda of faith and trust in the Creator practiced by world Jewry in its exile for 2000 years, - till the advent of Zionist secular nationalism - that will produce real peace and long-lasting security.

The finger pointing towards others like Syria Iran and Hamas is only fueling the flames of hatred and bloodshed. It’s about time to realize that the Zionist cause and its ongoing activities have been doomed to failure.

We pray that all misery in the Holy Land shall come to an end and that Zionism, the root of the suffering, continue to fade from Jewish consciousness to be replaced by the faith of Torah. Let us all pray for the speedy and peaceful dismantlement of the State of “Israel”. May we merit to see the day when all humanity will serve the Almighty in harmony and peace. Amen.
