The Satmar Rebbe, Reb. Zalman from Williamburg, strongly condemned Israel’s Haredi parties as being responsible for Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu’s campaign against the Iran nuclear deal.Funny he's got a problem with those political parties when they follow the same socialist path as he does. And downright offensive he's backing Iran by proxy, because his complaints are part of the reason why Iran's been able to get as far as they have: cowardice and victim-blaming.
“The Haredim are responsible for the program of incitement the Prime Minister is running against the President [Barack Obama],” the Rebbe told his followers at the anniversary of the passing of the Dvrei Yoel of Satmar, in the village of Kiryas Joel, Monroe, Tuesday evening.
“It is extremely blasphemous that the whole world knows observant Jews are those who stand behind the Prime Minister and provoke the nations, in the program that he runs horribly against the exalted American president,” the Rebbe asserted. “While the prime minister came to speak against the US president’s in his speech in Congress, the Haredim in Israel worked to create a coalition with him. The Haredi parties bear the direct responsibility for provoking all the world leaders, and puts Klal Yisroel in grave danger.”
“American Jewish politicians who claim to represent the Haredim in the United States are going to lobby Senators and Congressmen to vote against the president. While all generations knew and demanded the good of the government, even when governments in those days were not so good for the Jews, even more so for a country like the US which is good for the Jews. How can you wage war against the president? ” he asked.
And no doubt, the Satmar clan must've given their bloc-vote to Obama in the last 2 elections. Pure disgraces they are.
The 26th day of the month of Av marks the 36th yarhtzeit of the Satmar Rebbe, Reb Yoilish, who was also known by the moniker “The Anti-Zionist Admor.” Reb Yoel fought with strength and determination against the Zionist establishment and its partners, viewing it as a detriment to the coming of Moshiach and the root of all evil in this world.Of course, it's just like somebody of his kind not to study these deals with the devil; he probably didn't even get any copies. And it's just like him to fall back on victim-blaming. They're only doing their damndest to ensure danger will strike in the worst ways possible.
His older brother, the Satmar Rebbe, Reb. Aharon from Kiryas Joel, also addressed the debate over the Iran deal. In a speech to his followers on Tuesday, the rebbe said that while he had not studied the deal, it is not incumbent upon religious Jews to have a say on how Congress would vote on the deal. “If the agreement gets rejects and we are forced to go to war, who if not us will be blamed for the military casualties?” he asked.
