Neturei Karta asked Obama to save them from "the Zionists"
...they planned to cry out from afar and beg Obama to help them fight the Zionists' "iniquities" in general and the IDF draft in particular.A pashkevil advertisement they published read like this:
"As the welcoming ceremony draws near, Orthodox Jewry wishes to honor His Excellency the President, and to beseech him to exert his influence to help Orthodox Jewry of the Holy Land and thus to save hundreds of thousands of Jews subjugated under the evils and iniquities of Zionism, which is uprooting religion in general, and forcing enlistment in the army in particular (the military being utterly at variance with authentic religion, justice, uprightness, and humanitarian ethics, which have ever been our liberation from the regime of atheistic Zionism."Once again, we're being told by these freaks that Zionism is "atheist", among other illogic, and they shame the face of Orthodox Jewry with their isolationist hostility to the Jewish state. Those who live here are obviously just interested in the welfare they could exploit until now. If they don't like this country, they should prepare to move elsewhere.
