do you violate God's Order?
It will not succeed
by Neturei Karta (1) in New York Times, May 18, 1993
There is much discussion in the media about peace and peace conferences.
The Torah cannot be ignored because God deals with us in the ways
of the Torah which was given to us by Him on Mount Sinai.
does the Torah say?
to the Torah, before the Almighty gave us the Holy land 3264 years
ago, He made these conditions. If we will abide by the Torah, it
is ours, if not, we will be expelled. Alas, we sinned and were expelled,
even though at that time we were very strong and as the prophet
Jeremiah said 'All the kings and people of the world did not believe
that any invader would be able to come through the gates of Jerusalem'
(Lamentations 4:12)...Because of our sins we were expelled from
our land. Only through complete repentance will the Almighty alone
without any human effort or intervention, redeem us from exile.
At that time there will be universal peace. This will be after the
coming of the prophet Eliyahu and the true Moschiach 'not by might
and not by power, only by My spirit (Zecharie Chapter 4). The Zionists
rejected the Jewish belief and claimed that the cure for the Jewish
problem is to have a strong state with a strong army. This exchange
of the sacred belief for nationalism is destroying the holy essence
of the Jewish people and has brought constant war and bloodshed.
The result is their state is the most dangerous place. Betrayal
of the Jews
The Zionists have sacrificed Jewish lives in their ongoing conflicts.
To achieve their goal of statehood the Zionists have always deliberately
provoked anti-Semitism. During the Second World War the Zionists
were against giving money to rescue Jews. The Zionist leader Yitzhak
Greenbaum said in a speech in Tel Aviv on Feb. 18, 1943 that 'One
should resist this wave to push Zionist activities to secondary
importance'. He also said 'One cow in Palestine is more important
than all the European Jews'. Their interest was not to save Jews,
on the contrary, more spilling of Jewish blood would strengthen
their demand of the nations for the creation of their state. Their
motto was Rak B'Dam (only by blood will we get the land).
warned of danger
of the greatest rabbinical sages warned of the dangers Zionism would
bring. The euphoria over Zionism and all its paraphernalia, i.e.
army, embassies, flag, etc. is, according to the Torah, 'the work
of Satan' to test the faith. But the true faith of Jews has not
changed and 'peace talks', past or present, cannot change it. The
belief is that not only can there be no real peace as long as the
Zionist state exists but worse than this, the Zionist state is the
biggest catastrophe for the Jewish people!
peace, God said, for the evil doers' (Jesaiah 48 and 57)
have been adjured by the Almighty 'not to use human force to bring
about the establishment of a state, not to rebel against the nations,
to remain loyal citizens, not to leave exile ahead of time. Even
if the land would be given to us by all nations, we are not allowed
to accept it. To violate the oaths would result in your flesh be
made prey as the deer and the antelope in the forest (Talmud Tractate
Ksubos III). Jews lived in Palestine in peace and harmony with the
Palestinians until the Zionists came. The true Jews are not just
against the occupation of the West Bank and Gaza with the daily
oppression and killing, but are also opposed to the occupation of
the entire land of Palestine. According to the Torah, all Palestine
should be returned to the Palestinians and other occupied territories
should also be returned to their rightful owners.
to the Torah, Jews are not allowed to shed blood, harm, humiliate
or dominate another people
the world know that being a Jew means being devoted to the Torah
and rejection of the Zionist heresy. In the Zionist state Jews
suffer religious persecution and intolerance and even ancestral
graves are destroyed and desecrated in line with the Zionist plan
to destroy the Jewish religion. Even if the Zionists advocate
religious observance it would still be an atheist state.
politicians and their fellow travellers do not speak for the Jewish
people, the name Israel has been stolen by them. Indeed, the Zionist
conspiracy against Jewish tradition and law makes Zionism and
all its activities and entities the greatest enemy of the Jewish
American Neturei Karta - Friends of Jerusalem
Rabbi E. Schwartz - P.O. Box 1030, New York, NY10009
Karta is a community of Orthodox Jews who reject Zionism and refuse
to recognize the Zionist state. Members of this community are found
mainly in Jerusalem, Antwerp, London and New York.]
told us in the Quran that many of the Jews were "perverted
transgressors" in the time of the prophet, and verily
is that true today. For it would seem that so many of the Jews today
are Zionists, and there those Zionists that don't even know what
they are doing is wrong.
But there are those that do.
And there are those who persist in their transgressions.
And there are those that don't.
