Radical ultra-orthodox join Silwan rioters

Member of Neturei Karta hugs Iran's Mahmoud Ahmadinejad Following the march by far-Right activists through Silwan neighborhood of Jerusalem, riots broke out during which two policemen were injured. News reports, however, noted an unusual presence:

Between cries of "death to Jews", flying stones and improvised firebombs hurled at security forces, the members of the haredi group [Neturei Karta] stood out. Some were seen holding stones and others held signs calling for the establishment of a Palestinian state from the Mediterranean to the Jordan River.

FAR FROM ABIDING the Biblical “all [people of] Israel are responsible for one another”, the radical sect supports extremist Palestinian cause, as well as Iran’s Mahmoud Ahmadinejad. The group, seen as a pariah among Israelis, gets its publicity from visiting high-profile, anti-Israel events and proclaiming their support for violent “revolutionists”, such as Yasser Arafat.

The group believes only the Messiah should establish a Jewish state and that the current Israel is an abomination. Far from addressing worldwide anti-Semitism and genocide (which predated the 1948 declaration), the group believes the land should be under Arab control.

Sadly, brief examination of modern history shows that under Muslim control, not only couldn’t Jews built new places of worship or repair those, some synagogues were destroyed by Arab radicals, who previously pledged to safeguard Jewish religious heritage (see, for example, the Hurva synagogue).
