Date: TODAY - Thursday, Â July 1, 2010
Time: 4:30 pm
Place: 390 Park Avenue, NYC, outside the offices of RFR Holding

54th St, in New York City.
We come to raise our voices in protest against the destruction
of an ancient Jewish historic site. It is a cemetery in which
Jewish sages from the time of the Talmud lie buried. For
two thousand years they lay undisturbed, awaiting the coming
of the messiah and the resurrection of the dead - until just
Then RFR Holding LLC decided to build a 60 million-dollar
hotel, with an underground parking lot on the site of the
cemetery. Thinking only of their profits, they didn't let
the cemetery stand in their way. They turned down alternative
building plans in which the cemetery could have been left
in its place and treated respectfully. They called in archaeologists,
who unceremoniously removed some of the bones with tractors.
Today, July 1, they began to flatten the entire area in preparation
for drilling deep holes for the pillars of the building.
More and more bones are being desecrated as we write these
Where is this travesty taking place? Not in our own great
country, the United States of America, which provides freedom
and respect for all religions. Not in a European country,
and not in a Muslim country. No, it is taking place in "Israel",
the so-called Jewish state. Â The cemetery is in the ancient
city of Jaffa. Respected and protected for hundreds of years
under Muslim empires, it has now fallen in the hands of the
Zionists, to whom Jewish tradition means nothing. It is they
who permit and even encourage such construction.
Faithful Torah Jews living under the oppressive Zionist regime
have courageously come
out numerous times to the site to protest against the
construction. The Israeli police have met them with murderous beatings,
tear gas and pepper spray.Â Dozens of Jews have been wounded
and taken to hospitals for treatment. But they will continue
to come, as long as there is still hope to save the ancient
Anti-Zionist Jews around the world have taken up the cause
as well. Over the past two weeks, demonstrations have taken
place in major cities like: New
York City, Ottawa, Toronto, Montreal,
The world must know that the Zionist regime commits crimes
not only against the Palestinian Arabs, but also against
religious Jews who do not agree with its goals. Not only
do we condemn their cruel acts against the Arabs and the
Jews, and the other crimes that they commit against the Jewish
religion; we are strongly opposed to the entire existence
of their state, which is completely against the Torah. According
to Jewish belief, Jews were placed in exile by G-d, and are
forbidden to found their own country by physical means.
The ongoing Zionist disregard for all of the Torah is just
another proof that they do not represent religious Jews,
and certainly not the Jewish religion.
