June 5, 2005: Anti-Zionist
Orthodox Jews gathered in New York to
protest the Salute to "Israel" parade
which celebrates the existence of the
State of "Israel" held
at Sherman Square, at 5th Av. and 57th
They also protested the "Israel Day
Concert" in Central Park, which was
to show support of the State of Israel
and to rally against the withdrawal of
settlers from Gaza.
Anti-Zionist Orthodox Jews denounce the
very existence of the State of "Israel" which
is strictly forbidden according to Jewish
Law (the Torah).
The Torah expressly forbids the establishment
of a Jewish state and commands Jews to
remain in exile until released from that
exile by G-d Himself, without any human
intervention, at which time all nations
of the world will live together in peace
and server the One G-d in harmony.
This condemnation of the State of "Israel" also
encompasses the actions committed by the
State of "Israel" under the guise
of Judaism, whether against the Arab Palestinian
people or people of the Jewish faith.
Therefore, the Anti-Zionist Orthodox Jews
proclaim that according to the Torah, the
State of "Israel" should be totally
dismantled -- and pray that this should
come about speedily and peacefully.
