WHAT IS WRONG WITH THE STATE OF "ISRAEL'S" ELECTIONS?
Demonstrations will be held throughout the Holy Land to alert the Jewish people not to participate in the current elections in the State of "Israel" which is to take place on Tuesday, February 10, 2009.
Rabbi Mair Hirsh, a spokesperson for Neturei Karta in Jerusalem declared that: "The State of "Israel" is not a Jewish State but a Zionist State and is illegitimate and forbidden according to Jewish law."
"Judaism is a religion and spirituality. Turning Judaism on its head, transforming this holy religion into a materialistic nationalism, with a singular earthly goal of land conquest and military prowess, void of Godliness, is exactly what the State of "Israel"is about. Attempting to leave exile and all the other cardinal crimes associated and committed by Zionism and its 'State', such as the theft from, subjugation and oppression of, the Palestinian people, the continuous attempts to uproot the Torah and oppress the Torah-true Jews, etc., are to us religious Jews the worst tragedy."
"Orthodox Torah-true Jews are humiliated and pained by the terrible crimes that Zionism and its "State" are committing. The humiliation is compounded, when this is being done in the name of "Israel", the name that Zionism has appropriated from the Jewish religion."
"The terrible atrocities committed in Gaza in the recent weeks, should be an awakening call to all Jews true to the Almighty and His religion, to totally disassociate themselves from this godless illegitimate entity"
"Therefore we disassociate ourselves entirely from the State of "Israel" and reiterate the decree of our sages that it is forbidden to participate in the "Israeli"elections."
"We pray for the speedy and peaceful dismantlement of the entire State of "Israel". Our yearning and prayers are ultimately for the revelation of the glory of the Almighty, when all nations will serve Him, in harmony and joy. Amen."
