Neturei Karta: gläubige Juden gegen den zionistischen Staat Israel

Liebe Leserinnen und Leser,
heute möchten wir Ihnen eine weitere Gruppe gläubiger Juden darstellen, die den Staat Israel als jüdischen Staat ablehnen. Ihr Standpunkt ist zusammengefasst Folgender:
Israel ist kein jüdischer Staat, der sich die politische Führung nicht nach den Grundsätzen des jüdischen Glaubens verhält.
Die Juden haben keinerlei Anrecht darauf, andere Völker anzugreifen, Menschen zu töten und Kriege zu führen.
Israel ist ein politischer, nationalistischer Staat, der gegen die Menschenrechte handelt und NICHTS mit dem wahren Judentum zu tun hat….
Hier lassen wir mal einen amerikanischen Rabbi dazu sprechen:
Er spricht am 20. Juli 2014 gegen die israelischen Angriffe gegen Gaza:
Der Krieg Israels gegen Gaza verstößt gegen das Judentum.
Die Juden haben Jahrhunderte lang mit den Muslimen zusammengelebt, in allen Regionen der islamischen Welt.
Zionismus ist eine politische Position, die gegen die jüdische Religion verstößt.
Zionismus wurde von Menschen erfunden, die sich der Religion widersetzen.
Dieser Krieg ist kriminell und muss sofort gestoppt werden.
Wir fühlen mit euch, Gaza.
Wir weinen mit euch, Gaza.
Die Besetzung ist blutig und kriminell.

Wir freuen uns auf Ihre Zuschriften zum Thema

Neturei Karta opposed the establishment of and retain
all opposition to the existence of the so-called “State of Israel”!
Neturei-Karta is the Aramaic term for “Guardians
of the City. The name Neturei-Karta originates from an incident in which R.
Yehudah Ha-Nassi (Rabbi Judah the Prince) sent R. Hiyya and R. Ashi on a
pastoral tour of inspection. In one town they asked to see the “guardians
of the city” and the city guard was paraded before them. They said that
these were not the guardians of the city but its destroyers, which prompted the
citizens to ask who, then, could be considered the guardians. The rabbis
answered, “The scribes and the scholars,” referring them to Tehillim
(Psalms) Chap. 127. (Jerusalem Talmud, Tractate Hagiga. 76c).
The name was given to a group of Orthodox Jews in
Jerusalem who refused (and still refuse) to recognize the existence or
authority of the so-called “State of Israel” and made (and still
make) a point of publicly demonstrating their position, the position of the
Torah and authentic unadulterated Judaism.
The group was founded in Jerusalem, Palestine in 1938,
splitting off from Agudas Yisroel. Agudas Yisroel was established in 1912 for
the purpose of fighting Zionism. Gradually lured by money and honor they sold
out to the “Golden-Calf” (see Exodus, XXXII) of Zionism. Those who
wanted to maintain their faith and continue the struggle against Zionism,
dissociated themselves from Agudas Yisroel and associated parties.
Over the years, a number of Neturei Karta activists
and followers settled outside of Palestine. Some of the reasons that these
individuals abandoned the country in which they and their families had lived
for many generations (having lived there many years prior to the establishment
of the illegitimate so-called “State of Israel”) include; ideological
refusal to live under the illegitimate heretical “Israeli” regime,
their being exiled by the Zionist government for their insistence of remaining
independent of the illegitimate heretical regime or them being unable to live a
normal family life due to them and their families being persistently harassed, repeatedly
incarcerated and many times even physically tortured by the Zionist police and
agents. This dispersion resulted in the emergence of various Neturei Karta
establishments on the broader international scene. These establishments include
synagogues, educational institutions, publishing houses and organizations. The
establishments in New York include three synagogues in Brooklyn (Boro Park and
Williamsburg), three upstate, and organizations include the Friends of
Jerusalem in NY, NY.
Neturei Karta is not – as is often alleged – a small
sect or an extremist group of “ultra-orthodox” Jews. The Neturei
Karta have added nothing to nor have they taken anything away from the written
and oral law of the Torah as it is expressed in the Halacha and the Shulchan
Aruch. The Neturei Karta are fighting the changes and inroads made by political
Zionism during the past one-hundred odd years. Guided by the rabbis of our time
and under the inspiring leadership of the late Reb Amram Blau, the Neturei
Karta refuse to recognize the right of anyone to establish a “Jewish”
state during the present period of exile.
There are those who wish to play down the Neturei
Karta and its’ Torah-true beliefs. This has been attempted many a time by
stating that the Neturei Karta is a minority group and that compared to other
Jewish groups the Neturei Karta aren’t even noticeable in terms of number.
The name Neturei Karta is a name usually given to
those people who regularly pray in the Neturei Karta synagogues (Torah Ve’Yirah
Jerusalem, Torah U’Tefillah London, Torah U’Tefillah NY, Beis Yehudi Upstate
NY, etc.), study in or send their children to educational institutions run by
Neturei Karta, or actively participate in activities, assemblies or
demonstrations called by the Neturei Karta. Although it is true that the number
of families which could be classified as Neturei Karta members or activists
per-se is relatively small (several thousand), the number of Orthodox Jews who
believe in the anti-Zionist ideology which Neturei Karta is known for, number
in the hundreds of thousands.
Neturei Karta oppose the so-called “State of
Israel” not because it operates secularly, but because the entire concept
of a sovereign Jewish state is contrary to Jewish Law.
All the great rabbis who in accordance with Jewish Law
opposed Zionism at its inception did not do so merely due to consideration of
the secular lifestyles of the then Zionist leaders or even for their opposition
to Torah heritage and rejection of its values and practices, but due to the
fact that the entire concept of a Jewish state is in direct conflict with a
number of Judaism’s fundamentals.
Condemnation of and segregation from anything
connected to or affiliated with the so-called modern day “State of
Israel” is based on the Talmud, the key fundamental doctrine of the Oral
Tradition handed down by G-d to Moses on Mt. Sinai. The Talmud in Tractate
Kesubos (p. 111a), teaches that Jews shall not use human force to bring about
the establishment of a Jewish state before the coming of the universally
accepted Moshiach (Messiah from the House of David). Furthermore it states that
we are forbidden to rebel against the nations and that we should remain loyal
citizens and we shall not attempt to leave the exile which G-d sent us into,
ahead of time.
Jews are not allowed to dominate, kill, harm or demean
another people and are not allowed to have anything to do with the Zionist
enterprise, their political meddling and their wars.
Neturei Karta forbid any participation with the
so-called “State of Israel” or any of its subsidiaries. Neturei Karta
followers do not participate in “Israeli” elections nor do they
accept any aid from “Bituach Le’Umi” (Social Security), and the
educational institutions of the Neturei Karta reject any form of financial
support from the so-called “Va’ad HaYeshivos” (equiv. to Department
of Education).
The Zionist state employs a set of chief rabbis and
uses religious parties to ornament their state with a clerical image. They
study the Torah with commentaries altered to clothe the words with
nationalistic nuances. Our rabbis have countless times proclaimed that it
matters little which individuals or parties govern in the Zionist state because
the very establishment and existence of the state itself is to be condemned and
to be deplored.
The true Jews remain faithful to Jewish belief and are
not contaminated with Zionism.
The true Jews are against dispossessing the Arabs of
their land and homes. According to the Torah, the land should be returned to
Neturei Karta deplore the systematic uprooting of
ancient Jewish communities by the Zionists, the shedding of Jewish and
non-Jewish blood for the sake of Zionist sovereignty and the Neturei Karta
favor a peaceful transition from the present Zionist rule to a non-Zionist
According to Judaic Law the Torah has the last word.
There is no such thing as a majority of Jews who happen to be Jewish by birth
who can alter Torah Law in any way. In fact even the greatest rabbi or as
Maimonides writes, “even the greatest prophet” [referring actually to
an authentic prophet], has no right to distort or amend even one letter of the
Rabbi Blau stated shortly before his death that the
acceptance by the United Nations of the Zionist state as a member state constituted
a grave injustice to the Jewish people. Neturei Karta hope that this great
error will be corrected at the earliest opportunity. The Neturei Karta regret
that the Zionist state has usurped the holy name of Israel and that the
Zionists so often pretend to speak in the name of the Jewish people and assume
the right to act on our behalf. Only those rabbis who have not been affected or
influenced by the poison of Zionism, can be considered the spiritual leaders of
today’s Jewry.
The world must know that the Zionists have
illegitimately seized the name Israel and have no right to speak in the name of
the Jewish people!
