tragic day of Al-Nakba
A Statement of Solidarity with the Palestinian people
for Al-Nakba Commemorations

May 15 – London
May the Creator’s blessings be upon you, our dear brethren,
the long suffering Palestinian people.
We, of Neturei Karta International, salute you from Jerusalem,
New York, London and around the world. As many of you already
know the Zionist movement has been opposed by observant Orthodox
Jews from its inception. Zionism’s first advocates were atheists,
men who rejected and betrayed their own Jewish faith. Orthodox
Jews have always believed that it is a Divine decree that the
Jewish people are to remain in exile as loyal citizens to their
host nations until the Almighty will choose to redeem all of
Thus, it matters naught to us if the Zionist state be religious
or secular, whether it be of the right or of the left. Whatever
form it should adopt, Torah True Jewry throughout the
world including in the Holy Land itself, will never recognize
its existence. A large number of Jews who live in
the Holy Land refuse to accept any government monies and do
not participate in the electoral process, and of course reject
to serve in the occupying military forces.
Further we see the ongoing oppression and humiliation for decades
of the Palestinian people, especially what is happening recently
through it’s criminal leaders as a monstrous evil. The Torah
calls upon us to deal justly with all People. The Torah calls
upon us to exhibit kindness and loyalty to all, especially
with the people of the lands in which we reside throughout
our exile. Thus, it is inevitably the true Jewish position
to sympathize with the plight of the persecuted and the downtrodden.
It is unthinkable to us that the Jewish people should ever
appear as the bully, the persecutor or the dispossessor. And,
in fact, it is only those Zionist Jews estranged from their
own true faith and confused by the incessant propaganda of
the last 62 years who are responsible for the current suffering.
Throughout the world there are untold numbers of believing
Jews who are horrified by the Zionists criminal and racist
treatment of the Palestinians. These Jews
regard Israeli Independence Day as one of the greatest tragedies
in Jewish history. Many fast and recite special prayers
on that day.
Even though the Zionist propaganda machine portrays to the
world that they are representing the Jewish people as a whole,
thank G-D true believing Jews succeeded on numerous occasions
to remove the mask, the cover-up of this unthinkable falsification.
Recently a delegation of Neturei Karta international visited
the besiege Gaza, as a part of the Viva Palastina convoy, headed
by H.E. the honorable MP Gorge Galloway, to deliver medical
aid and to convey the message of solidarity with the suffering
people of Gaza, from many Jewish communities worldwide.
We seek the return of all the land, of course including Al-Quds,
to Palestinian rule.
We seek the return of all Palestinian refugees to their rightful
We seek the immediate cessation of Israeli settlements expansion.
We seek the immediate dismantling of the apartheid wall.
And finally, we seek the immediate speedy and peaceful dismantlement
of the entire Zionist State.
We seek to live in the land of Palestine as anti Zionist Jews.
To reside as loyal and peaceful Palestinian citizens, in peace
and harmony with our Muslim Brethren. Just as our ancestors
lived in Palestine for centuries, before the usurpations of
this tragic century.
May the Creator grant that this memorial day of Nakba should
be the last one, the current occupying State should end speedily
and peacefully in our days, and again the Jew and Muslim may
yet live joyfully in harmony and peace under Palestinian sovereignty
throughout the Holy Land.
May we merit in the near future, to the day when all humankind
will recognize and serve the One G-D together in harmony, AMAN.
