As YWN reported, two men from the organization Jews United Against Zionism, also known as Neturei Karta, spent Shabbos in Iran to attend the International conference on Global Alliance against Terrorism for a Just Peace in Tehran. The two men wearing traditional Chasidic clothing are U.S. Rabbi Yisroel Dovid Weiss, of Rockland County, and Canadian Rabbi Yeshaye Rosenberg.
On Sunday both of them met with Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad.
Neturei Karta has a history of embracing the Holocaust-denying Ahmadinejad.
They made international headlines in 2006 when the group attended the Holocaust denying conference, held in Tehran, and have met him every time the Iranian Hitler – who has openly called for Israel to be wiped off the map – visited NYC for the U.N. General Assembly.
Iran’s president, who once described the Holocaust as a “myth,” hosted the 2006 conference meant to question the scale of the Nazi genocide of Jews — and whether it even happened.
Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad initiated the two-day Holocaust conference in Tehran, insisting its purpose was not to deny the Holocaust, but merely to discuss it in an “unrestricted atmosphere”.
Ahmadinejad has repeatedly expressed anti-Semitic opinions, said he didn’t believe in the well-documented genocide of millions of Jews during the Second World War and has repeatedly called for the state of Israel to be “wiped off the map.”
