New documentary by local film-maker Wendy W. Campbell:

“Neturei Karta: Jews Against Zionism”

Featuring an interview with the engaging Rabbi Weiss of the Ultra Orthodox Jewish group called Neturei Karta (which means “Guardians of the City” in the ancient Aramaic language), which was formed in the 1930’s before Israel was created in 1948, to protest the new movement called Zionism. Rabbi Weiss, who is based just north of New York City, explains why his worldwide organization believes that Zionism is the exact opposite of Judaism and why they pray for the peaceful dismantling of the Zionist state of Israel.

Mainstream media has always ignored the activism of the Neturei Karta and other anti-Zionism groups, so this film may be somewhat shocking, but very enlightening, for many people who have always thought that all Jews are pro-Israel and Zionists. Rabbi Weiss provides a fascinating and concise history of Judaism and how Zionism has been aggressively seeking to transform it, revealing their intimidation tactics and falsehoods. He explains how the only way that true peace can be achieved is through achieving justice for the Palestinian people, by apologizing for having oppressed them and for stealing their land. He advocates making amends with them by providing reparations and allowing them equal rights. According to Rabbi Weiss, Zionism is blatant racism and against true Jewish values. He asserts that Judaism is a religion, but Zionism has attempted to replace religion with nationalism.
