Protest Against Persecution of religious jews in the Holy Land July 22, 2007 - Jerusalem


Protest of Persecution of Torah-observing Jews in "Israel"

On Sunday, July 22, 2007, Anti-Zionist Orthodox Jews demonstrated outside the United Nations Office in Jerusalem to protest against the brutality, persecution, denial of their religious rights by "Israeli" governmental authorities.

The protest was attended by 300 anti Zionist Orthodox Jews, lead by dozens of senior leading Rabbis, to cry out against the Zionist brutalities against the anti Zionist community.

The protesters issued a letter to Mr. Ban Ki-Moon, Secretary General of the United Nations, on the subject of "Persecution of Religion and Oppression of Orthodox Jewry in the Holy Land" outlining their position, which stated in part:

"We appeal to you regarding the denial of our rights as Torah-observing Jews by the regime and the rule of the Israel Police, and the severe persecutions which have recently intensified against the Jewish religion and its guardians, in a terrifying manner. Our appeal to you—for the first time in decades—testifies to the severity of the situation and our sense of of inordinate difficulty at this time, to such an extent that we feel that if, G-d forbid, the situation persists, we doubt if we can continue to stand firm and live in this country as religiously observant Jews."

The letter was signed in the name of 200,000 Jews in Jerusalem and Beit Shemesh.

Read the entire letter to the U.N. Secretary General.
