Einei HaEdah

A collection of sources to help those who don't want to buy into myths about Modern Orthodoxy, religious anti-Zionism, and other matters. NOTE: This is more of a database than a blog. NOTE #2: I refer to HaRabbanim HaGaonim Rav Moshe Feinstein, Rav Yosef Dov HaLevi Soloveitchik, and Rav Ahron HaLevi Soloveichik, Zichronam L'V'rachah, as "Rav Moshe, "the Rav," and "Rav Ahron."

The Yated Ne'eman Criticizes the so-called Neturei Karta

In the 8/18/06 issue of the Yated Ne'eman, there was a magnificent article about the so-called Neturei Karta. Some salient points:

The founder of Neturei Karta and his successor were vehemently opposed to working with Arabs against Zionism.

The Satmar Rav, Zatzal, would weep during wars fought by the State of Israel and pray for the safety of the Jews who lived there. He did not join with Arabs against Zionism and publicly condemned the idea of doing so, as did his successors.

HaGaon Rav Yaakov Kaminetzky, Zatzal, described these so-called Neturei Karta-niks in the harshest terms.

We should stop letting them use our mosdos and [here's a quote] "maybe this will spur them to move to Iran."
