Germany is responsible for the annihilation of over six million Jews and it was because of this atrocity that Jews, even those who opposed the state pre world war 2, felt that it was time for Jews to have a country to live in. The chutzpah of these descendants of murderers to state that they oppose having Yerushalyim as the country's capital cannot be be measured!
Spain threw out all Jews in 1492 and yet they have the unmitigated gall to slam Trump's recognition of Yerushalyim as the Capital!
Reform Jews took out the word "Tzion" out of their prayer books years ago and are assimilating at a rate of 85% ... they are basically irrelevant!
"Et tu Brutas?""Now, the foolish R' Aron TeitelBUM, Monroe Satmar Rebbe, condemned President Trump for recognizing Yerusalyim as the country's capital ...
R' Aron was the one who wrote to Congressman to ask them to vote for the Iran Deal that guaranteed that Iranian murderers would have nuclear weapons!!!!
It's interesting to note that he blabbered his nonsense on the night that they celebrated the miraculous salvation of R' Yoilish from the hands of the Nazis!
And who do you think saved him?????? A Zionist!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
But you wouldn't know that if you read the re-writing of Satmar history!
The head of one of the two rival groups of the staunchly anti-Zionist Satmar Hassidic movement ripped into President Trump for recognizing Jerusalem as Israel's capital last week.
Satmar, known as one of the most dogmatically anti-Zionist Hassidic sects, refuses to recognize the State of Israel and calls on members living in Israel not to vote in national elections, even for haredi parties and not to accept any funding from the state, including National Insurance payments. Satmar, however, does care for the welfare of Jews and runs the free meals for those staying in hospitals for Shabbat to care for loved ones.
Speaking before thousands of his followers at a celebration on Saturday night at the New York Expo Center in the Bronx, the head of one of the two Satmar groups that split after the previous Grand Rabbi's death,, Rebbe Aharon Teitelboim, said that Trump had no right to recognize Jerusalem as Israel's capital.
"We declare in the name of haredi Judaism: Jerusalem, the holy city, will not be the capital of the Zionist state, even if the President of the United States says it is," said Teitelboim.
"Just as haredi Jews did not recognize President Truman's declaration in 1948 that Israel is the Jewish State, we don't recognize it today."
"Jerusalem is a holy city, a city of piety," Teitelboim continued. "Zionism is the opposite of fearing God and Torah, and it has nothing to do with the city of Jerusalem."
The Satmar Rabbi Aaron group is not the only haredi movement unhappy with Trump's decision to recognize Jerusalem. The Neturei Karta, a small, extremist haredi faction which most other haredi groups deplore since they prayed for Arafat's health, and which vehemently opposes the existence of a Jewish state, said last week that they may have to leave Israeldue to Trump's announcement.
"The [previous] Satmar Rebbe said that once they feel that it is impossible to live here as a haredi Jew, then they must flee from here," Yoel 'Yoelish' Kraus, an anti-Zionist figure with ties to the Neturei Karta movement, told the Kikar Hashabbat Hebrew news site.
As long as that point was not reached, they could stay. And they kept saying, 'another year.' and then 'another year,' and they said that the situation had not yet reached the breaking point. But if there is recognition of Jerusalem as the capital of Israel, then we have reached the breaking point. It cannot get any worse."
The other Satmar faction, headed by Rabbi Zalman Leib, has not publicized a reaction.
