While Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu worked to awaken the world to the existential threat facing Israel from Iran in his UN General Assembly address, the heads of Neturei Karta used Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad’s visit to NYC to meet with the virulent anti-Semite.
The meeting took place last week last Thursday after the Iranian leader delivered his address to the General Assembly in which he denied the Jewish People’s right to Eretz Yisrael.
Yisroel Dovid Weiss and other well-known Neturei Karta leaders took part in the 40-mintue meeting in a NYC hotel. As usually, Ahmadinejad received his guests warmly, as the latter presented him with a silver item, which they explained was a gesture to express their feelings that the Iranian leader is “exemplary” in his recognition of what Zionism really is and his warmth for Judaism.
Both Ahmadinejad and his guests agreed the Zionists pose a threat to all and their presence in Israel is unwanted and destructive.
Moshe Ber Beck spoke in Yiddish and Yisroel Weiss translated to English. Beck thanked him for treating the Jews of his country well and for his ability to differentiate between Jews and Zionists.
