These are no words to adequately describe the antics of the Netureh Karteh group. Next time someone tries to convince you that these people are just pious Jews who don't like Israel, remember that they support Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmedinejad, a Holocaust denier. "Traitor" does not quite do these people full justice. The article below, from the Jerusalem Post, is self explanatory:


A delegation from the anti-Zionist Neturei Karta sect is currently visiting Teheran to meet with senior officials and express their support for Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad and his calls to eliminate
Israel.

In a statement to Iran's official IRIB radio, the group called for "the disintegration of the Zionist regime" and defended the Iranian president, saying that it "is a dangerous deviation to pretend that the
Iranian president is an anti-Jewish or anti-Semitic personality."



We should not be surprised that the Netureh Karteh, who got a subsidy from the PLO, consort with Holocaust deniers. A similar anti-Zionist Jewish group in Austria made an alliance with local neo-Nazis as well. Perhaps there is something paradoxically wrong and outdated in the Halachic criteria for "who is a Jew?" On the one hand, A Falashmura Jew or a Russian with a Jewish mother or a reform convert may have their heart and soul with the Jewish people and the Jewish cause. They may have suffered persecution for their Judaism and support for Israel abroad. They may be heros of the Zionist resistance. It makes no difference. According to Jewish Orthodox Halachic law, they are not recognized as Jews unless they "convert." On the other hand, the Netura Karteh, the Satmar Hassidim and their allies in Austria and elsewhere all maintain, unmolested, the right to call themselves Jews, all the while trampling on the Jewish people, the Torah and the memory of the Holocaust martyrs, and nobody seems interested in disowning them. On the contrary, they dare to call the rest of the Jews "heretics." Isn't it time to clean house in Judaism?

Neturei Karta sect pays visit to Iran

A delegation from the anti-Zionist Neturei Karta sect is currently visiting Teheran to meet with senior officials and express their support for Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad and his calls to eliminate
Israel.

In a statement to Iran's official IRIB radio, the group called for "the disintegration of the Zionist regime" and defended the Iranian president, saying that it "is a dangerous deviation to pretend that the
Iranian president is an anti-Jewish or anti-Semitic personality."

They added that they were "upset about the recent ploys, propaganda andtensions which have been created by the West regarding the statements of the Iranian president Mahmoud Ahmadinejad about a world free of Zionism, since this is nothing more than wishing for a better world dominated by peace and calm."

On Sunday, members of the delegation, headed by Rabbi Yisroel Dovid Weiss, met with Iranian Vice-President Ahmad Moussavi, who also chairs the Iranian Committee in Support of the Palestinian Revolution.

At the meeting, according to the Iranian news agency IRNA, Weiss "praised the 'enlightening' statements of Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad about the Holocaust and said the establishment of a Zionist government and occupation of Palestine are contrary to the injunctions of Judaism."

The doctrine of Neturei Karta says Jews cannot use human force to establish a Jewish state before the coming of the universally accepted messiah.

The group supports close ties with Arabs, particularly Palestinians, and rejects Zionism.

Ahmadinejad has been widely condemned in the West for asserting that the Holocaust is a myth.

This is not the first time that Neturei Karta has come to the defense of the Iranian regime. On October 28 of last year, the group issued a statement denying that Ahmadinejad was anti-Semitic after he called for the State of Israel to be dismantled.

Neturei Karta's leader, Rabbi Moshe Hirsh, considers himself a Palestinian Jew. The group has frequently participated in pro-Palestinian activities, including a visit to the grave of Palestinian Authority chairman Yasser Arafat in Ramallah in November.
