    The Rabbis (Pharisees) have a long history of swapping Jewish sovereignty and freedom for Halachic purity. These are the Rabbis who brought the Seleucids into Jerusalem against the sovereign Hashmonean monarchy, which was restored by the people of Jerusalem. These are the Rabbis who brought Pompey into Jerusalem and the Temple. Our beloved Rabbi Johannan ben Zakkai smuggled himself out of Jerusalem in a coffin, and agreed to help Vespasian defeat the fanatic Zealots by cutting off supplies to the Jews of Jerusalem (collective punishment), in exchange for setting up a rabbinical academy in Yavne. Since then, the rabbinical establishment have declared the Jewish exile and tribulations a Divinely ordained fall from grace, and this is the sole reason for "ultra-Orthodox anti-Zionism".
