The Jewish Neturei Karta raises the Palestinian flag in front of the Israeli flags
The anti-Zionist Neturei Karta group organized a stand with the Palestinian flag, in the face of the Israeli flags march, which started today in Jerusalem, and was described by Palestinian factions and international parties as provocative.
One of the photos was recorded by the Neturei Karta group, standing inside a checkpoint guarded by the Israeli police, while one of its members raises the Palestinian flag in front of the Zionist flags march in the Al-Masara area in Old Jerusalem.
The Neturei Karta group is a Haredi Jewish movement that rejects Zionism in all its forms and opposes the existence of the State of Israel. It has a population of approximately 5,000 and is present in Jerusalem, London and New York, and the literal meaning of their name is the city guards.
It is a Jewish religious group that was established in 1935. It opposes Zionism and calls for the dissolution or peaceful end of the Israeli entity, and the return of the land to the Palestinians.
Followers of this doctrine focus on rabbinic literature, which states that because of the sins of the Jews, they were expelled from the land of Israel, and they consider, based on the Babylonian Talmud, that any attempt to recover the land of Israel by force is a violation of the divine will, and Rabbi Moshe Hersh acknowledged that Palestinian President Yasser Arafat He is the legitimate and legal leader of the State of Palestine, which includes what is known as the State of Israel.
Most of the followers of this sect are of Hungarian descent who settled in the Old City of Jerusalem at the beginning of the nineteenth century, as well as from Lithuanian Jews who were students there.
This sect was contrary to the new policies emanating from Zionism, which aimed to achieve the sovereignty of the Jews over the land that was under Ottoman rule.
Among their arguments for opposing this idea were Talmudic discussions of passages in the Torah that relate to an agreement between their God, the Jewish people, and the nations of the world, which occurred when the Jews were exiled, and this agreement states that the Jews should not revolt against the non-Jewish peoples that gave them refuge and shelter. As in the case of the Ottoman Empire allowing them delegations, they should not make mass migrations to Palestine.
Their opposition to the state of Israel and Zionism continued under the leadership of their rabbi Amram Blue, and the matter came to this sect that they do not accept to touch any banknotes or cash bearing images and slogans of Zionism. Two members of this sect jointly prayed for Palestinian President Yasser Arafat in France, and Rabbi Moshe Hirsch also participated in his funeral.
