Orthodox Jews Condemn
Zionist Atrocities in Gaza

A call of anguish for our brethren in Gaza and the entire Palestine
To be delivered on behalf of Neturei Karta International at the rally outside the "Israeli"consulate in NYC, on January 26, '08

Assalam Alaikum

There is a vile lie which stalks the Jewish people across the globe. It is a lie so heinous, so far from the truth, that it can only gain popularity due to the complicity of powerful forces in the "mainstream" media and educational establishment.

It is a lie which has brought many innocent people untold suffering and if unchecked has the potential to create extraordinary tragedy in the future.

It is the lie which declares that the atrocities committed by the state of "Israel" against the people of Gaza and the entire Palestine, are the will of the Jewish people.

It is the lie which declares that Judaism and Zionism are identical.

Nothing could be further from the truth.

Judaism and Zionism are diametrically opposite and antithetical.

Judaism is the belief in revelation at Sinai.

It is the belief that exile is a punishment for Jewish sins.

It is the teaching of the Torah they we are forbidden by the Almighty to have our own state, or to rebel against any nation. Zionism has for over a century denied Sinaitic revelation.

It believes that Jewish exile can be ended by military aggression.

Its goal is to transform Judaism from a religion into a nationalism.

Zionism has spent the past century strategically dispossessing the Palestinian people. It has ignored their just claims and subjected them to persecution, torture and death.

Torah Jews the world over are shocked and pained at this short lived dogma of irreligiosity and cruelty. Thousands of Torah scholars and saints have condemned this movement from its inception. They knew that the pre-existing good relationship between Jews and Muslims in the Holy Land and in the entire Muslim and Arab world, was bound to suffer as Zionism advanced. The state of Israel stands rejected on religious grounds by the Torah. Its monstrous insensitivity to the G-dly laws of basic decency and fairness appall all men be they Jewish or not.

We of Neturei Karta International have been in the forefront of the battle against Zionism for over a century.

Our presence here today is to refute the base lie that the evil which is Zionism in some way represents the Jewish people. The reverse is true.

We are saddened day in and day out at the terrible toll of death emanating from the Holy Land. Most of these deaths have been Palestinian. Not one of then would have occurred if Zionism would never have unleashed its evil energies upon the world.

As Jews we are called upon to live in peace and harmony with all men. We are exhorted to be law abiding and patriotic citizens in all lands. Our message that we are presenting to you today is crucially necessary to be known by all. Aside from the importance of our message to, with the help of the Almighty, contribute to save the Palestinian people and to help remove the dark stain that Zionism has wrought upon Judaism, it is also necessary because of another reason.

Many of the people assembled here today represent human rights groups that believe the answer to the ongoing tragedies is to have a two state solution. But we, Orthodox Jews, represent the Torah view that the only long lasting solution is to accept the G-dly command of the Torah, which opposes Zionism and the state of "Israel" entirely. It is essential that the Almighty's command to the Jewish people is known to all. This is crucial so that when the Zionists wave the Torah and use the name of the Almighty, to legitimize their occupation, the world should not become intimidated and the Palestinian people's rights should be easier to attain.

Islamic brethren — We condemn the current Zionist atrocities in the Holy Land. We yearn for peace based upon mutual respect. We are convinced that this proposed mutual respect is doomed to fail as long as the Israeli state exists. We welcome its abolition in a peaceful manner.

May we be worthy of true redemption when all men will join in brotherhood in His worship.AMEN.

Assalam Alaikum
