Rabbis: Destroy Israel
Some radical Jewish rabbis are supporting destruction of Israel.
Leading rabbis of Neturei Karta, an 'anti-Zionist' group of ultra-Orthodox Jews who consider the existence of Israel an abomination, met with Vice President Gholamreza Aghazadeh, the top-selling Yediot Aharonot reported.
The group's spokesman, Rabbi Dovid Weiss, was quoted as supporting Ahmadinejad's call during an interview on Iranian television last week.
Although all of the rabbis who visited Iran live in either New York or London, there are some 400 israeli Neturei Karta families living in Jerusalem who refuse to recognize Israel's authority, according to AFP.
Following Ahmadinejad's claim that the Holocaust, the killing of an estimated six mln Jews by the Nazis and their allies during World War II, was a myth used to justify the creation of Israel, the visiting rabbis agreed the mass killing had been hijacked by 'Zionists'.
"The issue of the Holocaust has to do with the 'Zionist' use ... The 'Zionists' are using this issue. We, the Jews who were killed in the Holocaust, do not use the Holocaust as a tool for promoting our cause," Weiss was quoted as saying, AFP reported.
"Neturei Karta are well known for their hatred towards Israel," Yediot Aharonot wrote, "but it seems that this time they have crossed the line."
Iranian officials should remember that this group confirmed existence of Holocaust. So it is not only a myth used to justify the creation of Israel as Ahmadinejad suggested. So score is better on israeli side now.
