Last Sunday, representatives of Neturei Karta participated in the annual memorial service in Ramallah marking the day of the passing of PLO Chairman Yassir Arafat. They stood out in the crowd in their black clothes, each wearing identification tags over a background of a Palestinian flag.

During his speech at the gathering, Palestinian Authority President Mahmoud Abbas restated his intention of petitioning the United Nation’s general assembly this month to grant the Palestinian Authority the status of an observer state.

Abbas said he is determined to carry out his plan, in spite of pressure and threats from the United States and Israel.

“We will make our request as early as this month, and, within a day or two, the Arab League will let us know exactly on which date this month to do it,” Abbas declared, adding: “Even though they don’t want us to petition the UN. We will not deny the legitimacy of Israel and we do not wish to deny it, but we do want to undermine the legitimacy of the settlements.”

Abbas also referred to the circumstances surrounding Arafat’s death eight years ago and said that Russian experts requested the Palestinian Authority to join the French and Swiss team which will investigate the “strange” death, as he put it.

  5. Interesting enough is, that all of us Jews in 'diaspora' are denied by Israeli state of dual citizenship but those idiots denying its very right of existence are granted with israeli citizenship plus rewarded with extra benefits! For which reason the Israeli government is doing that? Something very wrong is going on folks… Maybe you are not interested in us anymore… Than for truth's sake be honest and declare your standpoint openly.

  6. Neturei Karta are a bunch of crazy cranks who are a danger to Israel. I understand that they are based in the USA. They are clearly not really Observant Jews they just wear the garments pretending to be observant Jews while they spread their lies and hatred. http://www.adl.org/extremism/karta/

    And yet the party of Kahane is still banned. Wait, who are the terrorists again? We need Moshiach NOW!

    A story in Me'Am Lo'Ez Vol 2 pg 519 states of a person who had two birds, one kosher and the other not, and he had forgotten which was which. He placed the two birds together with others, and the kosher bird immediately associated with other kosher birds, while the other went to the non-kosher birds.
    After Jacob had taken Esau's blessing by trickery, people did not know who was more ethical, Jacob or Esau. But then they saw that Jacob went to his own family to find a wife, while Esau married one of Ishmael's daughters. People were then able to discern the truth. (Yafeh Toar, pg 393).
    One can discern the truth from the picture above as well.
