Satmar "Shmendriks" Start their own Shulchan Aruch!

We all know that this past Thursday, the State of Israel celebrated Yom Hatzmeot.....

The actual anniversary of the date when Ben Gurion established the State as an independent nation was ה' אייר  the 5th day in Iyar! 

This year ה' אייר fell on Friday, so the Medinah wanting to avoid Chillul Shabbas moved it back a day..... 

Now.... this decision to move the celebrations a day earlier to avoid Chillul Shabbas was not a decision by Chareidim ..... they actually mourn on that day ....
this decision was made by Zionists .....

Be that as it may, Satmar issued a  Kol Korah that Tachnun, (a tefilah that is omitted should their be a bris, or a Chassan attending shul during Sheva Berachos or  any Jewish holiday,) must be said on Friday ה' אייר .... even though there were no celebrations in the entire Israel on Friday!

But the Satmar "shmendriks" went an additional step ....
totally defying the Shulchan Aruch which states that when a bris is performed in a shul, no Tachnun should be said in the entire building.....
they went ahead and issued a "FATWA" that  states ...that should there be a bris .... Tachnun will nevertheless be said because of ה' אייר ...

By the way, I find it interesting that only the Satmar gypsies know when ה' אייר is ... ask any yeshiva guy anywhere in the States what the Hebrew date is on any given day ... and they will stare at you with a blank look...... 

It should be noted that  Satmar Shuls never say Tachnun on any Friday ... a minhag that they made up and which has no halachic foundation!
