WE Cry Out AGainst Zionism
This Talk was delivered in Yiddish by Rabbi Moishe
Beck and translated to English
at a demonstration in Montreal on July 17, 2007
We have come out into the streets of the city
to cry out and demonstrate against Zionism and
its State known as "Israel".
- A State
which inflicts with cruelty and murderousness,
harsh suffering, death blows and undeserved imprisonment
on men who wish to strengthen the observance of the Holy Torah
within their own camp and who request by means
of placards that the holiness of their surroundings should
not be defiled by women dressing immodestly.
- This state of affairs
is currently taking place in Jerusalem and the
township of Bais Shemesh.
- Zionism and its 'State' has
been a tragedy from its inception right up to
the present day. It has been in existence now
for more than a century, in a land which does
not belong to them. They have oppressed the inhabitants
of the land both Jewish and Palestinian who had
been living together peacefully for thousands of years prior
to the theft of their land and homes. The Zionists have
treated the indigenous population as if they were
so much dirt underfoot and as if they did not exist, thereby
inciting a terrible hatred which burns right up to the present
- The very rising up from a state of exile plus
the theft and murder is forbidden to the Jewish
People as a basic part of their Religious Belief
and Torah. From its inception up till today the
aim of the Zionists and Zionism has been to deny
the Jewish Belief and Torah and to uproot it from
the Jewish masses who fall into their hands, by means of murder,
wickedness and an audacity the likes of which is unheard of.
All this in the name of Israel, a name which they have stolen
- They survive by the crushing and affliction of
all around them.
- Most recently they have taken to removing, with
a fearsome harshness and insolence, any announcement
placards situated in the streets occupied by the
orthodox groups, which ‘request’ observance
of modesty in dress. They harass with cruelty
those who stand and publicly request modesty in
their own neighbourhood. Their actions are accompanied
by deadly blows, bone breakages and unwarranted
- Since the earliest origins of the Zionist philosophy
to raise Israel from its Exile, all the Rabbinical
Authorities pronounced vehemently that this idea
is absolutely forbidden according to the Jewish
Belief and Torah and that this philosophy will
only result in suffering and bloodshed to Jews
and non-Jews alike, its aim being the entire uprooting of the
Jewish faith and Torah. Their words are being fulfilled in
front of our eyes as the years pass.
- Authentic Jews who have no attachment to Zionism
and its deeds cry out to the world at large ‘We wish
to make known our sorrow to one and all – let everyone
listen – we participate in the suffering of our brothers
who live there (in the Zionist State), who find
themselves under oppression and anguish for the
sake of observing their Judaism’. We shout out to the
Oppressor'. The world should know that the whole
Zionist idea is something apart from the Jewish
People and that true Jews have no connection with
- Only those who uphold the Jewish Faith and Torah
have the right to the names Jew or Israel. Those
who have excluded themselves from this have lost
the right to these names. Therefore the Zionists
are not Israel. The authentic People of Israel
have remained in Exile for thousands of years
and await the revelation of the glory that is assured by the
Torah and True Prophets. At that time will be fulfilled the
object will fear you and every creature will prostrate
itself before you and all will become one community
to carry out your will with entire hearts and
all will accept upon themselves the yoke of your
Every true Jew sincerely believes that this will
surely come about without doubt – hopefully
very soon – and this will be the true redemption of the
Jewish People. This will take place only by the
hand of the Holy One Blessed be He. Until such
time we are duty bound to remain in Exile and
to be loyal to the places in which we live.
- According to the Torah it is forbidden to make
an uprising and to throw off the yoke of Exile.
It is also forbidden to confront and resist any
nation, and we are forbidden under oath to the
Holy One Blessed be He on this matter.
- The Zionist uprising in which the Zionists rose
up in Palestine, expelled the Palestinians with
cruel theft and murder and established their State
which they called ‘Israel’ transgressed
G-d’s Faith and Torah in four ways :
1. They denied the true redemption and replaced
it with a different man made redemption
which has no connection with the redemption
in which the Jewish People believe and
await and which is foretold in the Torah.
2. They rebelled against the
Exile and resisted the nations, particularly
the Palestinians whom they ousted from
their country, so transgressing the Oath
3. They have generally denied and thrown off completely
G-d’s Faith and Torah and every aspect of subservience
to the Heavenly Kingdom. They have cast
off normal humanitarian behaviour. They
have dragged huge numbers of people away
from their religion by force, lies and
plots. All with arrogance and mockery – with
a pride, wickedness and murderousness,
the likes of which are unheard of.
carried out theft and murder against the
Palestinian People when they drove them
from their land with cruelty and killing.
- Therefore, the Zionists and their State have no connection
with the Jewish People – the name "Israel" has
been usurped by them and falsified.
- Tens of thousands of Jews in the world who believe in G-d's
Torah distance themselves from everything connected
with Zionism and oppose it.
- The Zionists do not represent the Jewish People and have
no right to speak in their name. They are nothing more than
a band of robbers who oppress all who come under their power
with murder and wickedness.
- The only place in the world nowadays where religion is suppressed
is in "Israel".
- The only place in the world nowadays where it is impossible
to observe the Torah as one would wish is in "Israel".
- The Zionist cruelty does not let up. Sometimes in one way
and sometimes in another way. Sometimes against the Palestinians
or other nations and sometimes against the Jews.
- Zionism was intended to be a salvation for the Jews. However,
Jews live in peace in the whole world, the only place in the
world where trouble and suffering does not cease is there.
Everyday a new form of suffering
- Everyday a new form of religious suppression. The wicked
ones spread themselves out like the sea and peace
eludes us. We cry out to the Holy One Blessed
be He '‘How
long will the wicked ones rejoice! How long will
your power be in captivity and your glory in the hands of the
- Tens of thousands of Jewish People in the world raise their
eyes in longing, 'When will we be free of this
tragedy of Zionism and its State?'
- We hope and pray to the Holy One Blessed be He for the peaceful
dissolution of the Zionist State and nothing of it or of its
ideas should remain.
- We hope for the revelation of the glory of G-d speedily
in our days. Omein.
