Rav Amnon Yitzchak: The Response to Neturei Karta


rav-amnon-yitzchak[Video below.] Thousands of Americans rallied for human rights and freedom yesterday at the “Stand for Freedom in Iran Rally” at the United Nations in New York City, as Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad addressed the UN General Assembly. Speakers included New York State Governor David Paterson, former New York City Mayor Rudy Giuliani, New York City Comptroller William C. Thompson, Jr., Nobel Laureate Elie Wiesel, and others. Also at the rally were members of Neturei Karta and their spokesman, Rabbi Yisroel Dovid Weiss. The group was largely marginalized and kept to a corner as they protested against Zionism and what they call “the Zionist State.” Unfortunately, however, photos of these men have appeared in numerous media outlets, creating erroneous impressions to those who don’t know better. Others, even in the frum community, have regrettably interviewed the Neturei Karta radicals, thereby giving them a voice and an air of legitimacy.

In the following video, Rav Amnon Yitzchak demonstrates the manner in which to respond to the Neturei Karta radicals and their ideology, which puts them in the rodfim category. Click on the screen to watch:

  1. Please don’t call these whackos neturei karta just because that is what they call themselves. the real N”K are nice ehrliche yidden in yerushalayim who would never do what these nuts do!!!

  2. Rav Amnon Yitzchak Shlit”a gives it to him like it is. Kol Hakavod. These clowns should go live with the iranans whom they dearly love..

  3. Did they say Borchi Nafshi and a Brocha on the Talis they wore to hug and kiss those Sonei Yisroel…the ones who deny the Holocaust…the enemies??????!?!?!

  4. Those nutcases who claim that they want to live in a country controlled by Arabs are invited to live in peace with the “friendly” Hamas-controlled Gaza. Let them see what it’s like to live under Arab rule. Wishing them hatzlacha…

  5. Please note, the Holocaust convention was in 2002 and some or most of the participants, who know no English, didn’t understand what it was about. They thought they were just protesting against Zionism. At least one of them has stopped going to these functions since then. Also, #1 is right – Neturi Karta in EY is strongly against this derech.

  6. R amnon yitzchak has a great website shofar.org which contains interesting videos on various topics. there is an option on the site to watch videos with english subtitles.

  7. PLEASE delete or amend comment #12. It directs the reader to “shofar.org.” THIS IS NOT RAV YITZCHAK’S ORGANIZATION – THIS IS A XTIAN GROUP THAT IS PRETENDING TO BE JEWISH SO THEY CAN LURE AWAY UNEDUCATED JEWS. The correct site for Rav Yitzchak’s “Shofar” is http://www.shofar.net/site/index.asp
