" The 70th Palestinian Nakba Day – The Jewish perspective
“Neturei Karta International”
Jews Worldwide Mourn
70 Years Existence of “Israel” A Rebellion against the Almighty And a Disaster for Humanity
70 years catastrophe
We are approaching now the 70th anniversary of the creation of the
state of Israel. 70 years of the occupation of Palestine, 70 years of
murder and cruelty, 70 years of a Nakba, catastrophe and disaster, 70
years of destruction of the peace and harmony that existed in Palestine
amongst all its inhabitants, 70 years violation of Judaism and 70 years
of rebellion against the Almighty.
Ongoing Israeli atrocities
Recently we have been witnessing ongoing atrocities against Palestinian
protestors on the borders of Gaza, who stand up in a peaceful
resistance against the Zionist regime. So many of them have been killed
and many more injured. And in addition, the massive Zionist propaganda
to pressure world nations into recognizing Jerusalem as the capital of
the State of Israel.
The Jewish opposition
join the outcry against this decades-long occupation, and condemn these
atrocities which are continuing to the present day. We clarify time and
again that all that Israel stands for is wrong, wicked, criminal and a
violation of Jewish law. We Jews are embarrassed since all of these
crimes are committed supposedly in the name of world Jewry.
According to basics of Jewish belief, Jews are forbidden to create a
sovereign home land for themselves. We are in exile by Divine decree and
commanded by the Almighty to be loyal citizens in the countries where
we reside. Killing, stealing, occupying another’s land, or oppressing
an entire people is totally forbidden in the Jewish religion.
Israel does NOT represent Jews
Despite all Zionist attempts to cloak themselves in the Jewish religion
and Jewish symbols in order to make themselves look Jewish, and
presenting themselves as the saviors of the Jewish people, Jews
worldwide declare: NO! The State of Israel is not a Jewish state, it
never was. Zionism, the philosophy behind the State of Israel, is a
transformation of Judaism from a religion into a nationalism, a
political movement. A movement which is violating each and every law of
of the Jewish religion, and attempts to uproot religion from the masses
of Jewish people.
Authentic Rabbis always opposed Zionism and to
the present day masses of Jewish people worldwide not only disagree
with the state of Israel, but publicly oppose it. The state of Israel
cannot and does not represent world Jewry or the Holy Torah, the Jewish
religion. In no way do they speak in the name of Jews worldwide or even
masses of Jewish people residing inside the Holy Land.
of Israel, is illegitimate and criminal, it is a rebellion against G-d
and a violation of the Jewish religion. It is a Nakba, a catastrophe for
the Palestinian people AND a disaster for Jewish people.
Jews oppressed in Israel
Not only Palestinians suffer under the state of Israel, but the Jewish
people suffer as well. As we speak, Jewish boys and girls are being
arrested, beaten and ordered to serve in an army they don’t believe in,
and those who stand up for them and protest are attacked violently by
the Israeli police. Furthermore, Jewish people lived in peace with their
Muslim neighbors in Palestine and in so many other Muslim countries.
This peace was sadly destroyed by the invention of Zionism and the
creation of the State of Israel.
Total Free Palestine
Jews worldwide are concerned for the suffering people of Palestine, for
the endangered Jewish people in the Holy Land and for the Jewish
religion which is so badly desecrated in this state of Israel. We
promote a totally free Palestine. We demand that all rights should be
returned to the Palestinian people. We clearly state that Jews would be
far more safe and the Jewish religion will be far better preserved under
Palestinian rule over the Holy Land, rather than under this
illegitimate, destructive state of Israel.
Jerusalem as the capital of Israel
Now, after 70 years of brutal occupation, the Palestinian Nakba is
being taken to a new level with the recognition by the United States of
Jerusalem as the capital of the State of Israel, and plans to move the
American embassy there. We are very concerned at the possible danger
this may bring upon the world, and we humbly plead with President Trump
to rethink his plans, for the good of all involved. We wish to make
clear to him that Authentic Jewry never recognize the legitimacy of the
existence of the state of Israel, and therefore we cannot recognize
Jerusalem as its capital. The State of Israel is no benefit to the
Jewish people, and certainly the recognition of Jerusalem as the capital
of the state of Israel is not in their benefit.
propaganda and intimidation of nations to support their State of Israel
does not benefit the Jewish people; on the contrary, it is causing
anti-Semitism and hatred towards Jews. The Zionists do this
deliberately, dragging us into their conflict in order to further their
Misusing the name of Jews
We condemn the
Zionist misuse of the Jewish identity for their political motivations
and we reject any ownership they claim on anything related to Judaism or
the Jewish people. Their use of the name "Israel" is criminal and we
demand that they stop using it.
Distinguishing between Judaism and Zionism
We admire righteous people throughout the world, layman and
politicians, who still remember and understand to differentiate between
Judaism the religion, and Zionism the political movement. To understand
the difference between the Jewish people, the people of the book, the
people practicing the Jewish religion, versus Zionists, who support this
political State of Israel.
We pray for the
speedy and total dismantlement of this state of Israel, we hope that
this should be peaceful, with no more suffering of anyone involved. And
we strongly hope that once this obstacle to peace, this movement of
Zionism, this State of Israel, is no longer in power, we peoples of all
backgrounds can once again live in peace in the Holy Land as we did in
I conclude with the prayer that we say on the Jewish
High Holidays: May we merit the day when the Almighty will reign over
the entire universe and His glory is revealed and all wickedness comes
to an end, with the coming of the Messiah soon in our days. Amen.
