Rabbi Yisroel Dovid Weiss, a spokesman for Neturei Karta International, Jews United Against Zionism, stated at a recent meeting: “Philanthropists, government representatives and well meaning people, should be apprised of the reality, that supporting Zionism, the State of ‘Israel’ and the IDF, does not help Jews or Judaism, but on the contrary only helps to perpetuate the tragic impasse and constant bloodshed in the Middle East, both of Arab and Jew.”

“Not supporting the State of ‘Israel’ does not make one, in any way, less of a friend of the Jewish people and most certainly does not label one an anti-semite.”

The Rabbi further stated:“The terrible oppression and deaths wrought on the Palestinian people in general and now particularly of those residing in Gaza is yet another example of the awful consequences of Zionism.” We Jews true to the Torah, issue a passionate condemnation of these latest Israeli atrocities. The deaths and suffering of these people, is only the most recent example of the sixty year toll of human suffering created by the Zionist enterprise in the Middle East.”

“History clearly attests to the fact that the Jewish existence in all Muslim countries was mostly harmonious and only since the inception of Zionism has this relationship been destroyed”. “Remove the intimidation and hyperbole of Zionist organizations such as “AIPAC”, “Friends of IDF” and its ilk, and any logical person will conclude that the difference of religion is not the cause of the deep seated rift between Jews and Arabs. The new ideology, the political movement of Zionism, which culminated in the form of the State of ‘Israel’, is the real culprit. In fact, Zionism is the direct cause for the exacerbation of anti Semitism universally.”

He further stated: “The Jewish principles of exile may be a shock and a complete surprise to the well-meaning friends and supporters of the Jewish people, but facts cannot be disputed. The Torah explicitly forbids us, the Jewish nation, from having our own State in this Heavenly decreed exile. We must patiently await the day when the Almighty Himself, without any human intervention, will bring the hearts of all mankind together to serve Him in peace and harmony.”

“Furthermore, we are forbidden to oppress another people or steal their lands and homes etc. We are commanded to be loyal, peaceful citizens in every country wherein we reside.

The Rabbi added that, “It is a great embarrassment to us that the Palestinians have suffered so much for so long at the hands of those who masquerade as representatives of the Jewish people. Zionism is a movement that disregards the Jewish faith and its teachings on every area of life, including its commandment that we seek peace and justice towards all people.”

“Rabbis, Orthodox Jewish leaders and laymen, have been fighting Zionism continuously since its inception and up until the present day. True Torah Jews will never accept Zionism and the State of ‘Israel’.”

May we merit to see, soon in our days, the peaceful and speedy dismantlement of the State of ‘Israel’, and the fulfillment of Isaiah’s prophesies "And they will beat their swords into plowshares and their spears into pruning hooks. No nation will lift its sword against any other, nor will they learn warfare anymore."
