Neturei Karta Rabbi Moshe Hirsch meets with
PRESIDENT yasser arafat- 16 september 2003

September 16, 2003, Rabbi Moshe Hirsch, of Neturei Karta, met with Palestinian President Yasser Arafat to discuss the crisis in the Middle East and to demonstrate that all Jews do not oppose the Palestinian State nor do they support the recent attacks on the Palestinian President.

The above photograph conveys many messages. Among them the following:

1. The willing acceptance by the Jewish People of their divinely ordained state of exile and their preparedness to live humbly under the auspices of the indigenous peoples of any country in which they find themselves and this includes, of course, the Palestinians in Palestine.

2. The Zionist ideology and aim of forcing the existence of their sectarian State is the exact antithesis of the above and the photograph indicates a vehement protest agains this ideology and aim.

3. A declaration of the realization by Orthodox Jews of the wrong perpetrated against the Palestinian People and their deep sympathy for their suffering.

4. A live example of how Jew and Palestinian can live together in peace and harmony.

5. A strident reminder that the only way to real peace in Palestine is the peaceful dismantling of the Zionist State.
