The Neteuri Karta is an esoteric sect of Orthodox Jews numbering maybe 1,500 worldwide (counting their women and children), most of whom reside in upstae New York, a few in London and about 150 in Tel Aviv. Members of the Neteuri KArta found sinecures for themselves in the pay of the PLO like thier leader, Moshe Hirsch who was paid $50,000 a year by Yasser Arafat to be his "Minister of Jewish Affairs." This means running around with his beard, payes and knickers at anti-Israel demonstrations claiming real Jews do not support Israel as a Jewish state. While claiming they are Torah observant and pious in their condemnations of Israel, these phonies work on Saturdays appearing for the ISM and other anti-Israel groups at demonstrations. Recently, some of them appeared on Iranian TV in support of Ahmedinajhad's call to wipe Israel off the map and to acknowledge the Iranian Hitler wannabe as a lover of Jews. The NK's like to claim they represent hundreds of thousands of Jews because once they were considered close to the Satmar Orthodox Movement, however, they are no longer regarded by Satmar as one of them and are considered to be what they are: phonies dressed up as Orthodox Jews who make money attacking other Jews. The www.nkusa.org website and www.jewsnotzionists.org website that purports to represent this group not only have false information and untrue history on them, but are paid for by the Palestinian Authority Chamber of Commerce, in otehr words, the PLO. Below is the Satmars' opinion on the Neteuri Karta:
Satmar Chassidic Court Joins Boycott of Neturei Karta Group 11:00 Dec 15, '06 / 24 Kislev 5767
The Satmar Chassidic court added its voice Thursday night to a call by Ashkenazi Chief Rabbi Yona Metzger to boycott members of the extremist Neturei Karta Chassidic sect who participated in a two-day Holocaust denial conference in Teheren this week.
The members of the anti-Zionist Neturei Karta group were photographed hugging and kissing Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad, an anti-Semite who has repeatedly called for the State of Israel to be “wiped off the map” and who promised at the conference that Israel would “soon no longer be.”
The statement called on Jews “to keep away from them and condemn their actions,” an order tantamount to placing the men in cherem (excommunication), similar to the call by Rabbi Metzger on Thursday.
The participation of the Neturei Karta members at the conference organized and led by Ahmadinejad was “an act of madness,” said the Satmar statement...
THE SATMAR STATEMENT
The Congregation Yetev Lev and the international Satmar Chasidic movement, takes issue with and strongly condemns the irresponsible actions and statements of a small group of individuals who were erroneously identified as Chasidic rabbis because of their dress and mannerism. They are not affiliated, nor are they members of our community. Their behavior is contrary to the Torah and the teachings of our venerated Grand Rabbi Joel Teitelbaum, the founder and leader of the Satmar movement.
These people have appeared and participated in an international conclave of known bigots and anti-Semites in Tehran, Iran.
The formal agenda of this so-called "conference" is to cast doubt and deny the most horrific and tragic occurrence of civilized history the 'holocaust', where the entire Jewish nation was decimated and slaughtered. Indeed, virtually no Jewish family living today is untouched by the atrocities of the holocaust.
These shameless scourges, masquerade as pious Jews, while betraying their ancestry and forebears. In a sick attempt for attention they trample on the memory of their ancestors and people by embracing the disciples of their murderers.
The unavenged blood of the millions of Jewish martyrs cries out in pain and abhorrence, to these reckless outcasts. How low can you sink?
We, the entire Chassidic community distance ourselves from these disguised individuals and denounce them to the entire world.
We hope and pray for the day that the A-mighty will avenge the spilled oceans of innocent Jewish blood and brings the ultimate redemption.
