Compassion for Arabs and Jews is a bond with G-d
Solidarity with the "State of Israel" is a bond with the Devil

On May 6, 2004 The National Day of Prayer at 1:00PM Orthodox Jews will counter-demonstrate the "Remember Israel Rally" in front of the Capital building in Washington DC

As we speak before a great assembly of Americans who have gathered together because of their feelings of concern for the Jewish People, we must make some very important and vital clarifications. It is of enormous importance that there are so many Americans who support strong issues like family values, morality and the right to life, we are grateful for that. In fact we have stood side by side in previous rallies, in support of such values. However, sympathy for the Zionist state, is misplaced compassion and concern, for the Jewish People. It is a great error, as we will, with G-d's help, clarify in the next few paragraphs. Therefore, it would be most urgent for those who are concerned about the Jewish People, to know that Zionism and the "State of Israel", have been the greatest danger and catastrophe to the physical and spiritual well-being of the Jewish People everywhere, especially in the Holy Land. Indeed, it is an undeniable fact that Zionism and the "State of Israel" is the greatest cause of anti-Jewish hatred in the world today.

As is written in the Holy Torah (Bible) and conveyed to us by our leading rabbinical authorities universally, we are forbidden to act by force of arms and violence against any people, including in the Holy Land. The Jewish people are in a state of divinely ordained Exile, since the destruction of the Jewish Temple some 2000 years ago. We are expressly forbidden to physically attempt to leave this exile, only prayer is permitted in order to achieve this goal. It is important to note, that the end of exile – redemption, does not mean a “State of Israel”, only rather, a time of universal peace and brotherhood in service of the One God. Exile means, that Jews are required to be loyal citizens in every country in which they live, and means, that they must not rule over any other people, rebel against any nation, or oppress any nation, or go up en masse to the Holy Land.

The movement called Zionism, was created approximately one hundred years ago, by non-religious Jews, atheists and heretics, such as Theodore Herzel and his cronies. They ignored all the above mentioned Torah commandments and in the face of vehement world-wide Rabbinic opposition, including the desperate attempts of opposition by the Rabbinic leaders of the indigenous Jewish Palestinian community, (Rabbi Yosef Chaim Zonenfeld, Rabbi Yosef Zvi Dushinsky etc. all of blessed memory), they -these Zionist heretics- went ahead with their evil plan, their vile, blasphemous, mutiny, against G-d and created the Zionist movement and ultimately the State of "Israel".

It is a colossal tragedy and desecration of everything holy to Judaism, that the Zionist heretics, not only rebelled against G-d, but did so, and claimed the Holy Land in the name of the Bible, bringing about not only one catastrophe, the desecration of G-d's name and the name of Judaism, but also a mass invasion, conquest and displacement of the native inhabitants of Palestine, who are entitled to sovereignty throughout their native homeland, where they have lived for countless centuries. The Bible states "thou shalt not steal" etc. etc. the Talmud states "You should emulate G-d, just as G-d is compassionate, so you should be compassionate" etc.

Thus, those concerned about the Jewish People and about human rights for everyone, must face the facts of Zionist heresy and what it has wrought in historic Palestine. The horrible desecration of Judaism can only be reversed through the dismantling of the Zionist state. We fervently pray that this should come about speedily and through peaceful means.

Anyone with even the slightest knowledge of history and current events knows that the Zionist state has been the greatest tragedy for the Jewish People, creating conflict with the Muslims and Arabs, with whom Jews have lived in peace and harmony for many centuries throughout the world from Morocco to Iraq, from Casa Blanca to Baghdad! Of course Palestine and Jerusalem are included. We still have live witnesses, Arab and Jewish, bearing testimony to these facts.

Being that - the Torah expressly forbids our leaving exile and warns us, the Jewish people, of the dire consequences and punishments that will result, if we will transgress His commandments, as it states "if you will despises my commandments" etc. And so in fact, our rabbis warned that the result of Zionism and the State of Israel will be tragic and catastrophic.

Being that - the Torah declares, to defy G-d's directives, will not be successful, as it states "why are you violating the words of G-d, it will not be successful" (Numbers, 14: 41). Therefore - we, the Jewish people, the followers of Judaism, who are true to G-d and His Torah, emphatically state, with full conviction, that - true lasting peace and harmony will never be attained only with the total dismantlement of the heretic "State of Israel" and when the Palestinian people are able to live in freedom and self-rule throughout historic Palestine, without the racist oppression of Zionism. Only when the Palestinian refugees are allowed to return to their native soil will there be peace in the Holy Land!

We pray for an end to the suffering of the Palestinians and Jews and an end to the suffering of all people worldwide. We anxiously await the implementation of all laws of human rights and justice, in order to dismantle the idolatrous, wicked, Zionist state. We welcome the opportunity to dwell in peace in the holy land in free historic Palestine, free of Zionist control. We, who are loyal to our Torah and to the teachings of our authentic rabbis throughout history, anxiously await the day of messianic redemption when the entire world will recognize the One G-d and serve Him in harmony and brotherhood with no coercion whatsoever. Amen.
