D er Satmar Rebbe, Rabbi Zalman Leib Teitelbaum shlit”a, sprach in Jerusalem vor Zehntausenden gegen den zionistischen Staat “Israel” und insbesondere über die Pflicht für Thora-treue Juden sich in keiner Weise an den Wahlen zum zionistischen Parlament zu beteiligen.
Thousands of haredi men and women gathered at Kikar Shabbat in Jerusalem’s Orthodox Mea Shearim neighborhood to greet and listen to the Grand Rabbi of the Satmar hassidic dynasty Rabbi Zalman Leib Teitelbaum on Sunday night.
The massive gathering was called to demonstrate against participation in Tuesday’s general election, and the thousands of attendees were told not to vote in the upcoming ballot.
Satmar is a fiercely anti-Zionist hassidic group and its leaders view any interaction with the State of Israel as prohibited, due to the secular foundations of its laws and an interpretation of a Talmudic passage which they say forbids Jews from setting up a sovereign state in the Land of Israel before the arrival of the Messiah.
The protest was organized in conjunction with the equally anti-Zionist Eda Haredit communal association, and the leading rabbis of the organization also addressed the crowd.
