A Palestinian teen who tried to stab an Israeli woman in the West Bank was run over and shot to death. Her father, imam of the refugee camp where she grew up, says his daughter was 'responding to the occupation.'04:30 28.11.15 | 0 comments
It must not be forgotten in all this that Zionism - the movement to return to the Holy Land before the coming of the Messiah - is a major heresy within true Orthodox Judaism and up until the 1930s, most Orthodox authorities rejected it as such. Some groups, such as the Satmar, continue to be true to this tradition. I must also say that the references to the Quran are a little skewed: there are references to the people of Israel as a people God has chosen but also many references to their betrayal of the covenant and therefore their exile as a punishment. That in fact fits well with the view of pre-Zionist Orthodox Judaism.
