Global March to Jerusalem: Neturei Karta reaches a new low.

The collaboration of Global March to Jerusalem organisers and supporters with internationally designated terrorist organisations was one of the project’s key elements from its inception.

Even so, the spectacle of its Neturei Karta participants in Lebanon paying a visit to the tomb of Hizbollah leader and terrorist Imad Mughniyeh and laying a wreath there has to be one of the more repulsive memories of the event.

Tweeted by @Patrick_Baz, the MENA photo manager for AFP: ‘Anti-Zionist, ultra-Orthodox Jews laying a wreath on Imad Mughniyeh’s tomb in Beirut, Lebanon.’

Mughniyah was, of course, responsible for the deaths of scores of people of many differing nationalities, including citizens of the United States. That fact does not apparently preclude presumably US passport-holding members of Neturei Karta such as Yisroel Dovid Weiss from lauding a murderer or rubbing sympathetic shoulders with those who continue his bloody legacy.

That the miniscule fanatic fringe sect Neturei Karta long since left behind the consensus of common decency by participating in a Holocaust denial conference in Tehran is well-known.

Apparently though, their willingness to prostitute themselves to any and every Israel-hater around is not even curbed by respect for their fellow Americans, Canadians and Britons murdered by the various terror organisations with which they collaborate so willingly.

Neturei Karta endorses Global March to Jerusalem

The Global March to Jerusalem is orchestrated by a whole host of seemingly incompatible groups including Sunnis and Shiites, extreme Leftists and extreme Rightists, ardent secularists and religious fundamentalists, terrorists and men and women of the cloth.

The one common denominator between all these groups – which under normal circumstances would have little if any incentive to co-operate – is expressed by self-appointed spokesman for the Jewish people Yisrael Dovid Weiss (representative of the miniscule fringe sect Neturei Karta) in the filmed address below made to a GMJ fundraising dinner held in Ottawa on March 23rd.  

Weiss explains his sect’s reason for supporting the Global March to Jerusalem as part of their aim to see the “speedy and peaceful dismantling of the State of Israel”. That wish (at least the speedy and dismantling parts) is in fact the bond between all the unlikely collaborators involved in organising and supporting the march. 

And, here’s Neturei Karta expressing support for GMJ on Twitter:
