Someone better ought tell this guy to SHUT UP!
At a time like this when Klall Yisroel is mourning our Kedoshim that died "al Kiddush Hashem" a smarkatch, repeats the blood libel of the murdering Hamas and says that the Arabs who are killing Jews, are killing them because there are a handful of Jews that want to Daven at the Har Habayis!
How sick and demented can one be? How low can this Romanian uncivilized leader of thousands go?
What difference is there between his words and the words of Mahmoud Abbas?
Is there one word different than the words of Hamas?
Who is allowing this guy to speak on behalf of Jews?
They better put him in a Straight Jacket!
Read this from Israel News and weep!
The Satmar Rebbe eulogized the victims of the massacre in Har Nof Tuesday, pointing the blame not at the Palestinian Arabs who killed them, but at Jews who ascend the Temple Mount (Judaism's holiest site - ed.) as the cause.
"These days, bad comes from the holy city of Jerusalem," the Satmar Rebbe stated, as quoted by hareidi website Kikar Hashabbat.
"Just today we heard terrifying news from Jerusalem of the loss of precious lives."
Rebbe called to pray and study the Torah in wake of the massacre, ''and to teach of our holy Satmar teachers, to memorize the pure view in times like these."
He then pointed an accusatory finger at Jews ascending the Temple Mount.
"Regarding the prohibition of ascending the Temple Mount, which all Jews who fear G-d know demands the punishment of karet [a severe punishment; open to interpretation, could mean premature death or spiritual excision - ed.], it has unfortunately become easy for people to take it lightly because of false beliefs," he stated. "Who knows how many victims were killed by observant Jews going up to the Temple Mount, and who knows what it will cost us, G-d have mercy, as a result of them."
Satmar hassidim believe, based on their interpretation of a Talmudic passage, that the State of Israel should established only after the coming of the Messiah.
The more stringent of the Satmar hassidic sect do not Western Wall or Rachel's Tomb because Jews were killed in order to gain control of those sites.
It should also be noted that the hareidi community at disapproves of ascending the Temple Mount, the allowance of which in Jewish law constitutes a controversial debate among contemporary Torah sources.
This, however, is not the first time the Satmar Rebbe has made controversial statements after a tragedy.
In July, Rabbi Aaron Teitelbaum of Satmar blamed the abduction of murdered teens Naftali Frankel (16), Gilad Sha'ar (16), and Eyal Yifrah (19) on the boys' parents for being "settlers" living beyond 1949 Armistice lines and the “evil inclination and the desire for Jews to inhabit the entire State of Israel.”
Several senior Satmar officials later condemned the statements.
