Raising money to fund anti-Israel ads to protest against the Government of Israel, has led the Satmar Rebbe (Reb. Ahron) to meet with two Muslim billionaires, the brothers of the Hani-Al-Kassab family in UAE, who own giant companies in Dubai and oil fields in the Emirates.The shame. It only hurts the Lord to associate with scum who wish to see Israel annihilated.
According to a report in Behadrei Haredim, the two brothers came to the U.S. to explore joint investments with some Orthodox Jewish partners.
The brothers, who came across Satmar’s advertisements against Netanyahu, were curious to learn more about Satmar’s ideological opposition to the State of Israel. The Jewish partner referred them to Rabbi Chaim Tzvi Teitelbaum, the grandson of the Satmar Rebbe in Kiryas Yoel, to request a meeting with the Rebbe.
The Rebbe expressed his willingness to meet with them, claiming it would sanctify God’s name.
Teitelbaum told them just what they'd like to hear:
“Our opposition to Israel is not due to political considerations, but a biblical prohibition to found a Jewish State in the land of Israel before the redemption,” the Rebbe explained. ”The State of Israel is a big contradiction to the Jewish religion and to our real hopes. So, even if the day comes and the Israelis sign a peace agreement with the Arab world, our opposition to Israel will stand.”Just like the Muslim world's. Teitelbaum violates the Commandment of Thou Shalt Not Lie when he claims their opposition is "biblical". If it were, we wouldn't have even left Egypt.
I won't be one bit surprised if this is the start of an ugly friendship between two very sick movements who both oppose Israel, one from Koranic beliefs, and the other from a false, distorted perception of what Judaism is meant to be about. This is just why the Satmar should be added to the list of groups dangerous to Israel.
