Neturei Karta: Jews Against Zionism

A fascinating, informative interview with Rabbi Weiss, one of the leaders of the Neturei Karta, an international organization of religious Ultra Orthodox Jews who are dedicated to peacefully defeating Zionism, which they believe is the opposite of Torah-true Judaism. They are opposed to the man-made Jewish state of Israel, which has been created by killing Palestinians and stealing their land. They believe that only God can create a land for Israel. Rabbi Weiss gives a concise history of Judaism, Zionism, Europe during WWI and WWII, Palestine, Israel, and the Zionist-dominated media in the USA. The interview is interspersed with video footage taken around 2002 of scenes from Israeli-occupied Palestine, showing how Israel is building the illegal Apartheid Wall, using US tax dollars.

Rabbi Weiss Rips the Ideology of Zionism

On May 4, 2009, a protest demonstration against AIPAC was held outside the convention center, where it was meeting in Washington, D.C. The mega-Israel Lobby convenes annually in this city. One of those speaking out at the anti-AIPAC rally was Orthodox Rabbi Yisroel Dovid Weiss. He is associated with "Orthodox Jews United Against Zionism," and is a member of "Neturei Karta International." See: Rabbi Weiss was sharply critical in his remarks of the ideology of Zionism.
