Naturei Karta or Biryoni ?

One cannot remain silent on the great Chilul Hashem these so called Naturei Karta hooligans have committed. We have to openly distance ourselves from them. It is a travesty that our leadership has chosen to take a public stand on the ElAl affair and remained silent when some who present themselves as religious Jews desecrate our Kedoshim. Velamalshinim al tehi Tikvah!

Hashiva Shofteinu Kevarishona! Leaders that know what to emphasize.

  3. BS and Chardal, I saw both posts but I had to say something. I was going to post a much more inflamatory post but my better judgement won.

  4. David,
    I couldn't agree with you more. Every time I see them at the Israel Day parade, or recently at the rally by the UN before Rosh Hashana this year it makes my blood boil. We need the Agudah, RCA , etc... to take out a full page ad in the NY Times and say that these people have nothing to do with us. They also need to be put into cherem, where no frum person should do any business with them, give them an aliyah in shul, etc...

    STATEMENT FROM AGUDATH ISRAEL OF AMERICA

    There should be no need to state the following, but to avoid any misconceptions in the media or among members of the public, Agudath Israel of America proclaims strongly and unequivocally that the visibly Jewish men who regularly appear publicly with virulent anti-Semites and claim to represent Jewish Orthodoxy not only do not represent anyone but themselves but are a disgrace to the Jewish people.

    Most recently, they presented themselves at the much and properly vilified Holocaust denial "conference" in Teheran, where widely-disseminated photographs captured the pitiful spectacle of their greeting and shaking hands with Iran's demonic president. Neither their professed determination to protect the interests of Jews nor their haredi garb can obscure the fact that all they accomplish is to offer succor and support to people who eagerly wish to do grave harm to Jews.

    There are many groups within the Orthodox community, and they represent widely differing positions on the concept of political and religious Zionism. All responsible Orthodox groups, however, have condemned the group at issue in no uncertain terms. Agudath Israel joins in that condemnation and declares that the group is not only deeply misguided and misleading of the public but dangerous to the true interests of the Jewish People.


    If I can locate your email I'll bl"n forwrd you the original.

    Please don't rush to judgement.
