Who’s on First?

You are all probably familar with images of the anti-Zionist Neturei Karta Jews getting to first base with Iranian Prez Mahmoud Ahmadinejad, while attending his Holocaust denial conference.

If not, here’s a reminder (thanks to an anonymous reader for the animation).

Well, Arutz Sheva reports something that was first brought to light years ago – and which bears reminding.

Israel Hirsch, one of the Neturei Karta participants of the conference, said his group ‚Äúshares a common platform with Ahmadinejad when it comes to the so-called myth the Zionist movement created around the Holocaust.‚Äù A resident of Jerusalem‚Äôs Meah She’arim neighborhood, he said he “wanted to make it clear in Teheran that Zionism uses the Holocaust as an excuse for the existence of the Zionist state in the Land of Israel.‚Äù

Hirsch went on to say that the Iranian claim is logical. “They aren’t saying that there wasn’t a Holocaust,” he insisted. “But who perpetrated the Holocaust? The Nazis, the Germans. So they should at least pay compensation to the Jewish nation and establish a Jewish state within Germany and not within the land of Israel, which belongs to the Palestinians.”

This same group kissed and hugged Ahmadinejad when he appeared in New York to attend the opening of the United Nations General Assembly in September. They also exhorted Jews to pray for a Hizbullah victory during the second war with Lebanon after two IDF reservists were captured by the terror organization in a cross-border raid this summer.

They attended the funeral of former Palestine Liberation Organization chairman and chief terrorist Yasser Arafat, and have been funded by Palestinian Authority terrorist organizations.

Documents discosed by the Intelligence and Terrorism Information Center and the Center for Special Studies (CSS) reveal that Arafat paid more than $50,000 to Hirsch, considered the “foreign minister” of the anti-Zionist Neturei Karta sect.

CSS stated that the documents uncovered during Operation Defense Shield carried out in Jenin by the IDF in April 2002 showed that Arafat paid $25,000 and $30,000 in January and February of that year for “expenses for activities.” The investigators noted that Neturei Karta frequently supported Arafat and served as a propaganda tool for him.

Which begs the question: if they are willing to kiss and grope a terrorist for around $50,000, what would they be willing to do for, say, $100,000?

Or perhaps I don’t want to know.
