  • Elder of Ziyon
When the anti-Israel and anti-semitic protests start up, you know that the idiots from Neturei Karta will be there. They showed up in New York, they showed up in London, and they are now regular fixtures in the Iranian media. They even ignore questions from Arabs asking about whether they condemn Hamas or Hezbollah atacks against civilians.

What I am writing here is known to everyone who reads this blog; only reason I am posting this is because I get a fair number of hits from Google, and if someone out there is researching Neturei Karta I want them to know:

Every single Jewish organization condemns Neturei Karta, including every Chassidic (Hasidic) group. Even the Satmar Chasidim, who are anti-Zionist themselves, finds Neturei Karta to be a despicable group that represents nobody, and certainly does not represent Judaism.

Here is a press release from 2002:
Umbrella Group of Orthodox Condemn Hareidi PLO-Sympathizers

Condemnation of Hareidi PLO Sympathizers
by Arutz-7 news
April 28, 2002

SATMAR AND OTHERS CONDEMN HAREIDI PLO-SYMPATHIZERS

"It is with shame, sadness and outrage that we publicly condemn the irresponsible and dangerous actions of a small group of individuals [known generally as Neturei Karta] who have taken upon themselves to endanger the interests of the Jewish Nation, and especially our brethren in Zion, by their reprehensible actions in joining the enemies of our people at the rally held last Saturday in Washington." So begins a statement issued last week by an umbrella organization of mostly-hareidi groups in condemnation of several hareidi-appearing individuals who recently demonstrated together with Arabs against Israel.

The umbrella group, comprised of Satmar, Bobov, Belz, Vizhnitz, Munkacz, Kiryas Joel, Monroe, and other communities - many of them openly and sharply critical of Zionism - termed the PLO sympathizers "evil associates of our enemies."

The statement continued:

"...their depiction in the local and international media in religious garb and prayer shawls marching arm-in-arm with Palestinian Jew-haters has besmirched the reputations of hundreds of thousands of decent Orthodox, hareidi and Hassidic Jews worldwide. Unfortunately this despicable minuscule group, who were ejected decades ago from our synagogues and communities for similar activities, do not accept or listen to the rulings of the leaders of our communities... They should under no circumstances,Heaven forbid, be associated with any recognized hareidi or Hassidi community... We hope and pray that these individuals will speedily realize the enormous damage they have caused to our communities and to the Jewish people at large with their evil undertakings, creating a major desecration of G-d's name on such a massive and unprecedented scale and repent for this terrible sin. Until that time they will continue to be unwelcome amongst Torah-observant Jews - who faithfully follow the teachings of their Rabbis - in all aspects of the private and communal lives."
This is as clear cut and united a condemnation that one will ever see from the Chassidic community.
