Rabbi Avigdor Miller,
Famous religious Jewish scholar, educator and author, in Brooklyn, New York (1908-2001)

Judaism and Zionism are not the same thing. These shakranim [liars] are trying to get us involved, so they’re trying to say that all the Arab states and all the other states are enemies of the Jews. That’s a lie! … The fact that they are against the State of Israel is political expediency that has nothing to do with us. And therefore we shouldn’t allow ourselves to be drawn into this maelstrom of political hatred like the Zionists would like us to. They want us all committed to their project so we should all be in the same boat, chas v’sholom. Chas v’shalom! We’ll all sink together. Nothing doing! Nothing doing! We’re a separate entity! We’re Jews, not Israelis.
