Judaism and Good Citizenship

It is one of the basic tenets of our faith that the Jewish people must be just and ethical in their dealings with all mankind. The Torah (Jewish teachings) calls upon us to maintain gratitude and loyalty to the nation in which we reside.

Many Torah Jews live in the United State of America, a land that has provided us with a home since its founding. We are ever mindful of this fact and the debt of passionate good citizenship that it obligates.

Our opposition to the existence of the state of "Israel" is such that it pains us to see many American politicians supportive of that government's every move and whim. We understand that this support is well intentioned. It had its roots in the past -- World War II American sympathy for the terrible fate of European Jewry in the Holocaust and their plight thereafter. For these good intentions of the United States government we are also grateful.

However, we must emphasize that, in truth, the existence of the state of "Israel" is not a positive thing for the Jewish people. It has reaped an awful harvest both spiritually and physically. Rather than expend so much money, political effort and military arms to maintain it in existence, it would be far better to work towards the peaceful dismantling of the state of "Israel" and transferring its governance to others. This is the true path to peace, being that this is the will of the Almighty.

The Jewish law dictates that the Jewish nation is forbidden to have their own entity in exile, prior to the coming of the Messiah. At that time, the glory of the Almighty will be revealed and all His creations will understand to be subservient to Him and to serve Him in harmony. Accordingly, the creation of a state of "Israel" is against the Jewish religion, most certainly this state, which is not governed by the Torah law. Ironically, this state makes it a policy of trampling on the Jewish laws, and on those that strictly abide by those laws.

The Torah states that if you will transgress the word of the Almighty, you will not be successful; The state of Israel cannot be successful (verse of Torah).

May we merit to see, soon in our days, the peaceful and speedy dismantlement of the State of "Israel", and the fulfillment of Isaiah's prophesies "And they will beat their swords into plowshares and their spears into pruning hooks. No nation will lift its sword against any other, nor will they learn warfare anymore", the day when all humanity will recognize the rule of the One G-d and serve Him harmoniously in peace and happiness. Amen.
