Orthodox Jews Call for Dismantling of Israel
February 6 2002
Rabbi Yisroel Dovid Weiss spokesman of Neturei
Karta International, a world wide movement of
anti-Zionist Jews, announced that delegation of
Rabbis will be joining the "Coalition of
Arab-American, Muslim Organizations" in protest
against the Zionist State.
"It is high, time that the Jewish people
realize that which our sages and the vast
majority of Jewry understood, when Zionism
began a little over a century ago, that, Zionism
is a movement of profound danger to the Jewish
"Hasn't enough blood been spilled, both Jewish
and Palestinian? Isn't it time to rethink the
entire Zionist enterprise?" Rabbi Weiss noted
that the message his group will bring to
Washington and the Palestinians assembled there,
is the clear Talmudic prohibition of
Jews over the Holy Land until their sins be
expiated in exile. Violation of the terms of
Jewish exile has caused much suffering for all
parties in the Middle East. "It is high time to
dismantle the Israeli state. It is a blemish on
the Jewish people.
All mankind is told by the state's
representatives, that Israel represents Jewry. This is utter
nonsense. Heretics cannot represent the Torah
people. Those guilty of massive cruelty towards
the Palestinians cannot represent a merciful
"The task of the Jewish people is to devote
itself to Torah and God's service. We are
called upon by our Creator to remain loyal to
the countries of our exile and to pursue good
will towards all men. Zionism is an evil
distraction which lures its victims into endless
conflict with other peoples."
"Today we have joined with the Palestinian
people in a show of sympathy for their
suffering. Prime Minister Sharon's presence
today in Washington, is an affront to believing
Jews and suffering Palestinians."
"May we all be worthy of seeing the day when
the state of Israel will be no more, the
Palestinians will be relieved of their
suffering. And the wayward Jews will return to
their brethren in the true service of God. The
day when all nations will recognize the One God
and then, we will all serve Him together

Bloodshed in the Holy Land
Torah true Jewry in outcry against the leaders of the "State" of Israel
According to the Torah, the Jews are forbidden to have a State, even
religious State. Therefore, all Rabbis and God-fearing Jews, since its
inception have opposed Zionism in any form and all of its ensuing
With pain and sorrow we will gather to protest against the torah defying
"State of Israel”, specifically against their Leader the bloodthirsty,
Sharon! Who is presently visiting President Bush, It is he who in
defiance of the Torah desecrated the name of the Almighty by going on
the holy mount proclaiming war against the Palestinian people. He
thereby instigated and exploded an endless chain of murder and bloodshed
of all people in the Holy Land. He is constantly fueling this war
together with his atheist colleagues in the government of Israel.
We also will gather to protest against the vicious police and acts of
the Israeli government against religious Jewry.
We will protest the persecution and incarceration of rabbis who were
defending holy grave sites.
We will further protest the assisting of the cold-blooded murder of
prominent Rabbi Samet for his defending religious principals in the holy
city of Jerusalem.
We also ask the government of the U.S.A. to use all means available
them, to halt all these actions, to gain the release of the revered
Rabbi Biton and bring to justice the murder of Rabbi Samet o.b.m.
We pray to the Almighty to free the land and the Jewish people with
forthcoming of Moshiach! [the Messiah].
