2. Alert: Seven anti-Zionist rabbis imprisoned by Israelis

Many of you will have already seen the news of the seven anti-Zionist rabbis imprisoned for protesting against Zionism. The news. received from Neturei Karta International is reproduced below. IHRC suggest campaigners write to their Minister of Foreign Affairs, highlighting the discrepancy between Israel’s claim to be a Jewish state and its treatment of those who actually profess the faith. Nothing could clearly expose better that the claim of Zionists that they (a) protect the Jewish community and (b) have religious precedent for their claim over Palestinian land are both false. Israel is clearly an imperialist and fascist state.

For more information, please contact IHRC on the number below.


10 April, 2002 – In Beit Shemesh, Israel, a crowd of several dozen anti
Zionist Orthodox Jews marched today to, in their words “condemn the rule of Zionism” and the “aggression against the Arab peoples.” They handed out literature which quoted the Satmar Rav of blessed memory who attributed much of the world’s suffering to Zionism.

This thoroughly peaceful demonstration was attacked by the Israeli
police. Seven individuals were arrested. Since their arrest they have been deprived of food and religious articles.

Please spread this message around the internet and to as many media
outlets as possible.

Zionist terror is not limited to the West Bank or the Palestinians.
Even Jews who dare criticize its brutality find themselves its victims.
The names of those imprisoned are Nachman Mashiach, Don Kessler, Aharon
Kessler, Avraham Ginzberg, Avraham Fisher and two minors whose names we do not yet have.

Pray for them.

Tell the world of their plight.

Jews and Moslims stand together against the Zionist brutality.
