Neturei Karta Burn Flags Today for Yom Ha’atzmaut

8

neturei-karta-small2Members of the Neturei Karta group in Eretz Yisroel burned Israeli flags today in protest against Israel’s 61st anniversary of statehood. The protest took place during a ceremony in Beit Shemesh. Protestors carried signs saying: “We mourn Israel’s 61 years of existence.”

Beit Shemesh is home to dozens of families belonging to the Neturei Karta group, which does not recognize Israel’s legitimacy.

Last week, while the people of Israel honored those who perished in the Holocaust with a moment of silence, dozens of Neturei Karta members protested in Yerushalayim.

neturei-karta3At around 10 a.m., the protestors gathered in Kikar Shabbos, and as the siren sounded for a moment of silence, they held signs condemning “the Zionist Holocaust Day” and clashed with police and passersby.

  1. the biur halachah in hilchos sfiras haomer while listing the different cheshbonos when the talmidei rebi akivah died , lists one that they did not die on days we dont say tachunin.Chasiddem dont ever say tachunin so when did the talmidem die. the teretz is they all died on hay iyar the day where they say extra tachunin

  2. BOURCH HASHEM THERE IS YIDDEN WHO UNDERSTAND THAT THE “THE STATE OF ISREAL” IS VERY WRONG AND THAT IT IS CAUSING JUST TZAROS FOR YIDDEN

  3. When are you going to stop giving these lunatics publicity? Every time you print something about their antics you give them credence. Enough is enough. They’re sick. They’re NUTS. They don’t deserve publicity. Forget they even exist. They give the rest of us a bad name.
    BTY, isn’t it lashon hara when you write about them?

  4. Do you have to wait 72 min for Yom Hoo’Atzmos to go by? or is 45 min enough? How about ‘Havdoola’?
    (Hamavdil bein Koidesh L’Chol or Koidesh L’Koidesh or maybe Chol L’Chol)?
    Waiting for ah P’sak fin the ‘groise’ poskim…

  5. to’good jew’ medina or not can you explain why on yom hazicaron the day honoring 32750 troops who died saving all Israelis charedi and chiloni that these dogs run down the main street yelling during the moment of silence please explain

  6. sometimes , in halacha , its dictated that when a person does a mitzvah he should do it betzinah,otherwise he may become haughty.
    these neturei karta chevra should do there flag burning betzinah maybe they will become less haughty.
    i wonder if they get social service from the gov’t or checks for chiyunei from the israeli gov’t. in that case they are kofuh tova; and have no shyches with the ribono shel olam.
