He’s my favorite Haredi speaker, by far, even though he is a staunch enemy of secular Zionism and the closest thing we have to a fire and brimstone preacher. First, because he is fearless; second, because he has a fantastic sense of humor; and third, because he’s pretty honest, considering he’s just this side of a politician (he actually sponsored a list for the Knesset this year and didn’t even show).
His take on Neturei Karta is both negative and highly specific, because there are issues about which he actually agrees with them (secular Zionism, naturally).
