The world stands aghast, as the atrocities committed
on the West Bank become known in ever greater and horrifying detail.
Mere words are insufficient to express the pain, that
all mankind feels, at the plight of the Palestinian people.
For over one hundred years, they have been subject
to a carefully conceived plan, to drive them from their homes and
At one time this was done by aggressive immigration,
later by war and finally, by insane destructions and dispossessions.
This is, has been and continues to be, the criminal
agenda of Zionism. But among this movement’s greatest crimes,
is that it has claimed to do this in the name of Judaism and the
This is a wicked lie!!
Judaism forbids and rejects Zionism. And the Torah
believing Jews, have always fought against Zionism!
Before the advent of Zionism, Muslims and Christian
Arabs and Jews, lived peacefully together in the Holy Land !! Ask
your grandparents! They remember those peaceful days! And in fact
it is here the opportune time to thank all the Muslim countries
for their extraordinary hospitality throughout the ages!
If not for Zionism, we could yet live together once
The Zionists claim, that the Bible gives them the
right to banish the Palestinian people, and to subjugate them.
What a pathetic joke! It is we, the Orthodox Jews,
who believe in the Bible. Zionism, has rejected the Bible, as it
rejects the rest of our faith.
We know what the Bible teaches. It teaches, that we
are forbidden to rule the land. It forbids us to subjugate a people.
It teaches justice. It teaches peace. It tells us, that when the
Messiah comes that “Nation shall no longer lift up sword against
nation, and they will make war no more.” All nations will
serve God together in peace. And this is the Jewish peoples, hope
To the Honorable President George Bush, the U.S. Government
and its good citizens – We are extremely thankful for the
pity and compassion you have constantly shown the Jews in their
plight in exile. And we are indebted to you for all the countless
good deeds and hospitality you have bestowed upon us.
But, please do not think, that by supporting the Zionist
state, you are protecting or in some way helping the Jews people.
On the contrary, by helping Israel stay in existence, you are assisting
in the killing of Arabs and Jews alike. You are helping the buildup
of anti-Semitism universally, we plead with you, stop all support
to Israel ! stop all assistance! stop all aid!
To our Jewish brethren, religious and not yet religious
– Do not be intimidated by Zionist terror tactics!!
Proclaim loudly and clearly, that only those who fully
believe and practice our religion, who believe in the ethical and
moral basics of our faith and who remain loyal to the Torah, may
legitimately speak in the name of our people.
Tell the world, loudly and clearly, that you support
Palestinian statehood in the ENTIRE Holy Land , not despite your
Jewish identity, but because of it!!!
To our Islamic brethren – please do not judge
our faith or our people, on the basis of this passing lunacy of
Zionism. The Jews, ever have been and ever will be, your friends.
Do not allow your understandable anger to settle, on those who are
innocent of wrongdoing, regardless whether they reside in Occupied
Palestine, Europe , or anywhere around the globe.
Together, men of all nations, standing together, will
yet be worthy, with God’s help, speedily and peacefully, without
further pain and bloodshed, be it Arab or Jewish, to see the liberation
of Palestine from its occupiers, the proclamation of Palestinian
statehood over the entire Land, and peace and harmony amongst all
of its inhabitants.
And may we yet merit to see, in the very near future,
the revelation of the One God, over the entire world, with all mankind
in His servitude, in joyous brotherhood, AMAN
