There are endless rabbis in Israel as well as in the diaspora who are supportive of the State of Israel.  Satmar and the likes of them are incapable of pointing to a single Gadol (Great and accepted rabbi) who share their hatred of Israel and of Jews in Israel.

Is Israel perfect? Absolutely not! Neither was exodus from Egypt. Jews were on the lowest level of impurity when God took us out of Egypt.


The holiday of Purim came at a time when Jews were eating and drinking from the vessels of the Temple while partying with the Persian king.

Chanukah happened at a time when the majority of Jews were becoming hellenists and even the Chashmonaim, who were the heroes of Chanukah, failed and eventually became hellenists and the Temple was destroyed.

The Talmud clearly States the final redemption will come slowly, one step at a time.

We have come home to the Land of Israel, we have witnessed the gathering of Jews from all four corners of the earth and we have seen the blossoming of the Land of Israel. No, things are not perfect, but it is clear that we are certainly on our way.

My father once explained the moral blindness of Satmar and other fringe anti Israel Jewish groups in the most beautiful but sad way.

When one is stuck in the darkness of exile for 2,000 years and all of a sudden, out of the darkest times of the Holocaust, a bright light suddenly shines through,  many cannot handle the light and they shut their eyes.

This is the case of Satmar who is unable to see the clear miracles that God is bestowing on Israel. Even during the miraculous Six Day War when we liberated Jerusalem for the first time in 2,000 years, the Satmar Rebbe called it the Six Days of darkness.

I pray for these Jews to open their eyes before their views cause the same destruction they caused to so many in Europe who could have escaped.

Prayer For The Well Being Of The State Of Israel
