Neturei Karta: Obama, Save Us From Zionists


obama-neturei-kartaMembers of the fringe Neturei Karta sect are planning a “welcoming ceremony” today for the US president upon his arrival in Yerushalayim, urging him to “save us from the evils of Zionism.”

The fringe group members produced festive posters with a special logo comprised of the word “Welcome!” in English and in Hebrew with United States flags on both sides, all in honor of “His Excellency Barak Hussein Obama.”

The anti-Zionist sect is aware of the American president’s strained relations with Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, and are seeking to take advantage of the situation in order to turn Obama against the State of Israel.

obama-neturei-karta-posterWith no ability to approach the president’s secured entourage, they planned to cry out from afar and beg Obama to help them fight the Zionists’ “iniquities” in general and the IDF draft in particular.

“Orthodox Jewry is prepared to greet The countenance of his Excellency, the President and Friend of Peace and Justice,” the ads read.

“As the welcoming ceremony draws near, Orthodox Jewry wishes to honor His Excellency the President, and to beseech him to exert his influence to help Orthodox Jewry of the Holy Land and thus to save hundreds of thousands of Jews subjugated under the evils and iniquities of Zionism, which is uprooting religion in general, and forcing enlistment in the army in particular (the military being utterly at variance with authentic religion, justice, uprightness, and humanitarian ethics, which have ever been our liberation from the regime of atheistic Zionism.”

The extreme faction whose members dress in Orthodox garb is attempting to distance itself from rebellion against the world’s nations by adopting a submissive ad groveling approach toward Obama, expressing hope that “his Excellency the President is aware and attentive to the suffering of Jews who are faithfully perpetuating millennia-old original Judaism.”

If he helps them, they said, “May G-d bless those who bless his people with years of prosperity and success.”

They further expressed their hope that “his Excellency the President will do all that is for the benefit of the great nation, the United States of America, and for the good of all humanity. The President whose soul has the potential to inspire his nation.”

The welcoming ceremony was to be held this afternoon in Mea Shearim. “The public will carry US flags to welcome his Excellency the President and ask him to liberate Orthodox Jewry and the entire Holy Land from the Zionist thieves.”

  1. While I do not agree with everything Neturei Karta does. Very few people protest the chilul Hashem That the Zionist constantly do in Eretz Yisroel.
    I feel That if we would have been more vociferous about that instead of giving a blank check to Zionism Neturei karta would fall back in their apparent extremist attitude. Did any one other than they protested the immoral magazines that now circulate in Hebrew? We are caught in an emotional relationship with the state of Israel and as such forget our responsabilities to be a nation with a voice of Yaakov!

  2. They are fringe and exhibited apikorsus in being mevaze Gedolim such as Rav Elayshiv ztzl and yibadel l’chaim Rav Shteinman shlit’a among many others.

    They are also rodfim who ally themselves with enemies such as Iran

    And R’ Goldstein perhaps you should ask why the Neturei Karta is not supported by Gedolim and why over the past decades many Gedolim have denounced them.

  3. You are correct – when the Neturei Karta protested when Ponevizh first accepted government funds, the talmidim asked the Ponevizher Rov ztl if they should chase them away. He said chas vshalom – if they didnt come on their own he would have paid for them to come to show that it is bdieved to accept funds from the zionists!

  4. I think that we are to one sided and bias towards Neturei Karta. saying that the allied with the enemies of Jews is an affront to the truth. I have heard people say that they deny the holocaust and other outrageous charges.
    I believe we should take the time and investigate, learn ,and digest with deliverance another way to treat zionism. So far I have seen slanderous and illogical charges mostly out of ignorance.

  5. R’ Goldstein NK has a great track record of joining with sonei yisroel who have murdered Jews. Feel free to do your research and you can easily find pictures of their leaders embracing terrorists and Iranian leaders with Jewish blood on their hands.

    Rav Aharon Feldman shlit’a who lived in Yerushalayim for 40 years said recently that NK is like Conservative Judaism neither have daas torah.

    And #7-The Ponovezer Rav ztzl was niftar over 40 years ago and it was a different NK (WHICH EVEN THEN DID NOT FOLLOW THE OVERWHELMING DAAS OF CHASSIDIC AND LITIVSH GEDOLIM) even if your maaseh is true.
