These people are a disgrace. I can proudly say that I once led a counter demonstration in Boro Park against these clowns.

For those of us who don't know who these people are.....

Neturei Karta
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Neturei_Karta

Neturei Karta (Aramaic: ðèåøé ÷øúà; "Guardians of the City"), is a group of Haredi (Ultra-Orthodox) Jews who reject all forms of Zionism and actively oppose the existence of the State of Israel.

They are mostly concentrated in Jerusalem, with devotees in and around New York City, Ramat Bet Shemesh near Jerusalem, the Old City of Safed, and Bnei Brak. Estimates of their membership range from 5,000 to less than 1,000. Other groups associated with Neturei Karta, can be found in London, Vienna, Antwerp, New York City, and other parts of New York state.

Other Orthodox Jewish movements, including some who oppose Zionism, have denounced Neturei Karta's activities; according to The Guardian, "[e]ven among Charedi, or ultra-Orthodox circles, the Neturei Karta are regarded as a wild fringe". [1] Neturei Karta claims that the mass media deliberately downplays their viewpoint and makes them out to be few in number. Their protests in America are usually attended by a few dozen people. In Israel, several hundred is typical, depending on the nature of the protest and its location. [2]

Neturei Karta are sometimes mistakenly confused with Satmar Hasidim, due to their similar mode of dress, and some similarities in their anti-Zionist ideology.

The FR thread below has a number of photos showing just how incredibly deceived Naturei Karta really is. Hence forth they shall exist in infamy.

Is Norman Finkelstein in Tehran?

Ahron Cohen of Manchester is a leading member of the anti-Zionist Neturei Karta movement.

He believes that God would have saved the victims of the Nazis if they had deserved to live. Cohen said "when one suffers, the one who perpetrates the suffering is obviously guilty but he will never succeed if the victim did not deserve it in one way or another."

Would G-d have saved the victims of the Nazis if the victims had deserved to live or had not deserved to die for some reason?

I think any intelligent, rational person would recognize that the answer to this question has to be "No." G-d would not have saved the victims of the Nazis even if the victims had deserved to live, and G-d would not have condemned them to die even if they had deserved to die for any reason.

G-d does not operate that way. All you have to do is open your eyes and witness what happens every day. The guilty go unpunished and the innocent suffer. The only question is "Why did G-d create the world this way?"

I think that the Neturei Karta's failure to recognize this reality and address this fundamental question of justice is the reason they are so clearly amoral. And that is what I truly believe they are: ignorant, amoral animals, just like the Nazis were.

The question is "Why did G-d fill the world with ignorant, amoral animals who perpetuate injustice?"
