Satmar Rebbe Of Williamsburg Slams Neturei Karta: ‘Terrible Chilul Hashem’

NEW YORK (VINnews) — Reb Zalman Leib Teitelbaum, the Satmar Rebbe of Williamsburg and the son of the Rebbe Rabbi Moshe Teitelbaum, sharply condemned the Neturei Karta sect who have been demonstrating in New York City in support of Hamas and against the Jewish State.

“There are those who do not have any ancestral tradition, and carry out actions independently, because they think they understand more than the late Tzaddikim [A reference to his father and his great-uncle Reb Yoilish],” the Rebbe said on Sunday regarding the fringe group that advocates the “peaceful dismantling” of Israel because its very existence constitutes rebellion against God.

“Unfortunately, we see how far they have strayed from the path,” the Rebbe said. “They are walking around the world together with the Arabs, with those who shout without any shame and support the murders, they walk with them in broad daylight with the Shtreimel and the chasidic clothes and shout together with the haters of Israel and murderers of souls. This is a terrible desecration of the name of heaven, to strengthen murderers in the name of the Holy Torah and in the name of heaven.”

The Satmar movement is considered anti-Zionist and presents itself as the ideological guardian of the entire Haredi public. They are the biggest contributors to the charedi community and institutions that do not receive budgets from the State of Israel. However, unlike Neturei Karta, they maintain ties with pro-Zionist charedi communities.

Last week, members of Neturei Karta visited Jenin and met with Palestinian Islamic Jihad and Fatah leaders. According to a post on social media covering the visit, the representatives of Neturei Karta said: “We want to live in coexistence and in peace, our Jewish brothers want it too. We wish to live peacefully together with equal rights, on the basis that we all stand firm against occupation.”

It was important that the Rebbe say this agains Neturai Karta – as people mistaken then for Satmar which they are not. Kudos to the Satmar Rebbe – I am so delighted that he said this. The world needs to know that they are not Satmar – just a bunch of nut jobs that do their own thing – nothing to do with the religion. They are not part of my Orthodox religion. They need to do Tshuvah, big time! They should all become Satmar & follow Satmar values & rules.

Reb Yoelish (z’l) wisely said “Our antiZionism is not their antiZionism”, referring to goyem who are against Israel. Yidden have argued about the secular Jewish state of Israel for over 100 years, both sides thinking they have good intentions for Klal Yisroel.
The Arab savages you see protesting in the streets have one specific goal- to kill all Jews. They have no good intentions for Yidden. The Useful Idiot Jews who march with them are beyond foolish.

Read The Chosen, by Chaim Potok.

VIN has become part of the fake news!

The Satmar Rebbe gave a speech of about 45 minutes explaining how Zionism and the state of Israel is against the Torah and only through the coming of Moshicah we will go out from Golus.And revenge against the Goyim will be by Hashem.

In the end of his speech he also mentioned that fighting against Zionism is not how some Frum Yidden do by marching along with blood thirsty Arabs.

Correction,

Satmar also advocates for “peaceful dismantling” of [the State of] Israel because its very existence constitutes rebellion against G-d.
In that regard, Neturei Karta is not a fringe group.
They are only fringe because they demonstrate together with Pro-Palistinians.

The Titanic is sinking and all of these anti state will one day be begging to step foot inside it. The way to uproot secular Zionism is to ascend to Israel in holiness and not fester in the spiritual decay of exile. Step one…..

Only took 20 plus years for the Rebbe to say anything about these evil people. Better late than never I guess. Then again, it would have been the status quo if not for October 7th. Nothing would have been said. Waiting for Reb Aharon to say something as well.

Why doesn’t the Reb Zalman Leib Teitelbaum, the Satmar Rebbe of Williamsburg, call for a counter protest. He could easily bring out 10’s of thousands people. What is his calculations?
