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.”

We had peace with the nations for hundreds of years before Israel came along??? What is this guy smoking?
Of course that the Holocaust denying is wrong. But and this is a big but denying the existing of hashem and our obligations to follow his torah and mitzvos is much worse. Now if this makes headlines then denying hashem should make super headlines.
I hereby pledge NOT to look at yeshiva world news until they remove AND apologize for posting this horrific Chilul Hashem that should NOT get coverage from ANYONE…PLEASE don;t support them by giving them publicity!!!!!!! I will NOT support ¥ou until you STOP this!
I also agree with #3, if you want to report REAL JEWISH NEWS don’t include these people. As far as I am concerned they have nothing to do with the Real Jewish Nation!
this article brings such sinas chinam
im ashamed of ywn
Attn #3 and #4
Have you ever seen someone who’s not “all the way there”, well these people are obviously crazy but they’re doing what they believe in. Go visit them and try to explain to them the issues you have with them.
I don’t think its right, what your calling him. He has the din of a “tinik shenishbar” not a rotzeach and you are promoting even more chillul hashem then this guy might be.
I look at these Chassidim and wonder how did they get so brainwashed to believe in such false idealistics. It is a sad day for Klal Yisrael to see our own who are against us are against Eretz Yisrael which Basically means against the United States as well. Shouldn’t we be coming out with Cherem’s banning these people from our Holy Batei Knayisos And Batei Midrashos.
That fellow dressed as a chusid speaks a very good English. Perhaps he’s just an imposter dressed as a chusid since they words he spoke could not have come from a Yid.
Does anyone have an emesis basin for me to get sick into?!
Please note: Most NK members are against this cuddling up to the Muslims. None of the Israeli branch endorses this and many in the US don’t either. I doubt there’s even a minyan of these loud ones. Many of those speak good English because they’re “gevorene” (“reborn”), and you know what they say, a gevorener is worse than a geborener. It’s like using some kooky fringe BTs to paint a broad picture of Frum Jews.
Maybe we could all just add some Lashon Harah and add to the Hillul HaShem. Who do you think we should pray more for, these guys or the ones that do not even know that there is a pesah seder? Maybe they are all just one in the same. Silly rabbit Trix are for kids!
# 6 “tinik shenishbar”??1st you cant spell #2 tinik ? thats you, hes no tinik he nows how to spell it. #3 Hes a Pure 100% Amalek with pyyes.It says L’ L’ they will look just like Yidden. I am against a secular state too but these guys are worse then chotim and poshim , they are rishi yisroel minim kofrim and apikorsim . Yodaiya Ribonum verotzeh limrod bo.PROOF: THEY DONT HAVE ONE GODOL WHO AGGREES WITH THEM.
