NETUREI KARTA of THE ORTHODOX
URGENT PRESS RELEASE
In the past week the so-called Chief Rabbi of the so-called
State of "Israel", Yona Metzger, has made vicious
and provocative statements asserting that the Palestinians
living in Gaza should be moved from their homes into the Sinai
Yona Metzger is not an authentic Torah authority, despite
the fact that he carries the so-called title of "Chief Rabbi".
Chief rabbis of the Zionist State only carry legitimacy in
the eyes of Zionist Jews. His status as a chief rabbi is not
unlike the leadership of Theodor Herzl, who also wore a beard!
The State of "Israel" is illegitimate according to the Torah
teachings. The founding of the State of "Israel" is in direct
contradiction to the teachings of the Torah which 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.
We are likewise forbidden to rebel against any nation. We
are to remain peaceful and loyal citizens, in every country
in which we reside. Therefore to oppress the Palestinian people,
harm them, steal their land, expel them, etc. is totally forbidden
according to our Holy Torah.
The Rabbinical authorities universally have stood in vehement
opposition to the ideology of Zionism and have opposed the
state of "Israel" from its creation until the present day.
Palestinians have an inherent right to return to their land
in historic Palestine and to establish their independent state
in the entire Holy Land, which was forcefully taken from them
by the Zionists. Indeed, many Gazans are refugees who were
expelled from other areas of Palestine by the Zionists ever
Chief Rabbis of the Zionist state, whether Metzger or anyone
else, are merely very well-paid stooges of the Zionists and
serve their Zionist masters without regard for the welfare
of the Jewish People, the Palestinians, or any other nation
in the world.
The Chief Rabbinate of the Zionist State, just as all Zionist
institutions, has importance only because of its coercive
power over the religious, economic and everyday life of the Jewish
residents of Zionist occupied Palestine. Whoever recognizes
and supports the Zionist State, even innocently, has been taken
over by the heretical Zionist movement, no matter how large
the halo that it is granted by supposed Jewish authorities.
Chief Rabbis, and other rabbis who support the existence
of the Zionist state, are wicked emissaries of evil. Such "rabbis"
promote hatred and war, and use their
coercive powers to demand
subservience of Jews to the Zionist enterprise. This description
that we posit of such people has been the long-standing position
of authentic rabbis for the last century.
Yona Metzger expresses feelings of inhumanity which
originates in his loyalty to the cult of Zionism and is perfectly
prepared to sacrifice Jewish lives on the altar of his idolatry,
the State of "Israel." Any moral person would much prefer
to see the Zionist warmongers, including Metzger, removed
from the Holy Land. METZGER AND ALL ZIONIST RABBIS DO NOT
REPRESENT THE JEWISH RELIGION.
We urgently appeal to the leaders of
the world nations, especially the great powers, to stop supporting
the Zionist regime. Many nations believe that supporting Zionism shows
friendship to the Jewish People. This is incorrect! True friendship
to the Jewish People can be demonstrated by saving all the
peoples of the Middle East, including Jews, from the bloodthirsty
machinations of the dangerous State of "Israel" and by dismantling
the Zionist regime entirely, peacefully and speedily in our
May Almighty G-d protect us from the influence of Zionism
in general, their evil warmongering bloodthirsty leaders, and
from their wicked servants who call themselves "rabbis."
