Naturei Karta

Last night as I walked out on Broadway after a screening of “Gomorrah”, a new movie about the Naples mafia, I heard a commotion a couple of blocks south. When I got there, it was a demonstration against AIPAC that was holding a fund-raising dinner at a hotel on 44th Street. About 200 people were there, including the Naturei Karta–a Hasidic sect opposed to Zionism. Here’s their leader holding forth at a 2008 protest:


  1. I used to see these guys in the barricaded enclosures that were demonstrating against the big Founder’s Day parade on 5th Avenue every summer. They’d be holding forth on one side and the JDL would be baiting us on the other.

  2. Nice. I could do without the constant reference to God, but nice. Think I’ll sub and send it around to my French muslim friends.

  3. Many larger sects are also anti-Zionist but only these guys will actually demonstrate with gentiles.

    I think even the Chabadniks secretly believe Zionism to be a heretical project although they pretend otherwise to maintain good relations with Zionist officialdom.
