Jerusalem - The Neturei Karta faction has come out against the custom - common among ultra-Orthodox boys - of dressing up as soldiers on Purim, and warned that such costumes were even worse that those of Christian priests.

In pamphlets distributed among their public, the stream’s leaders urged their followers not to masquerade as policemen, soldiers, rescue workers, ZAKA crew or other forms of national service, and avoid wearing “impure symbols.”

In an article titled “On Purim I Do Not Wear Zionist Outfits,” they wrote: Would anyone wear the clothes of pagan priests? Let alone the clothes of those who serve the heretical monstrosity that descended from Israel.”

The article went on to say that, “The offspring of God, the king of kings do not wear the clothes of the Zionist Amalek… also on Purim one must not wear a garment adorned with words that are insulting to the leader and the congregation.”

These rishoyim provide lots of entertainment value, like looking at a car wreck, but it is better for Klal Yisroel if they were just ignored. We know what should really be done with them, but we can't and they know it, so just ignore them.

Dear Shamil (judging by your name, you are probably a Muslim)! Religios Jews usually refrain from using foul language. So please limit your wisdom's discharges to some place more tolerant of obscenity.

BS"D

You mean Harav Amram Bloy ZYA. He has been in Gan Eden watching with dismay at what his so called successors have done with the name Neturei Karta for perhaps 30 plus years now.

He was too busy helping the same unformed police who arrested him for Shabbos protests to care if kids dressed up in uniforms.

I don't know why any Jewish Publication or web site pays attention to these people. They're no more Jewish than the "Jews for J".

Many spiteful and venemous coments. Yet, no one has given any reason why they are wrong. You can disagree with them usually, such as about meeting Ahmidenijad, but this time you can admit that they are right.
No reason why dressing as a zionist soldier is any different than as as a iranian or hamas or hizbullah soldier.

If you don't see any difference between a "zionist soldier" or a Hamas thug, then you need help.

These "zionist soldiers" are risking their lives protecting other jews, they deserve our utmost support and respect.
