Who said it...?

In a letter to the heads of Hamas:

"Now, on the occasion of the recent elections that have taken place in Palestine, we join our brethren in Palestine, in humbly offering our blessings and congratulations to you leaders, followers, and supporters of the Hamas organization upon your success. "

That's right. It was "rabbi" Yisroel Dovid Weiss and "rabbi" Ahron Cohen of Neturei Karta (Yemach Shemam).

They continue:

"Leaders of Hamas, upon your elevation to the position of official representatives of the entire Palestinian people, we offer our blessing and a prayer to the Almighty:

MAY the Almighty guide you and bestow upon you His wisdom to enable you to lead the Palestinian nation according to His will.

MAY the Almighty unite the hearts of the Palestinian people to accept and embrace your leadership with love and good will.

MAY it be the will of the Almighty that we should merit to see the peaceful and speedy dismantlement of the Zionist entity - the state of “Israel” and the transformation of rule over the entire Holy Land, including of course Al-Quds, to its proper rulers, the Palestinian people. Then we can once again live according to the will of the Almighty, Arab and Jew as neighbors, as we have been doing for so many hundreds of years up until the inception of Zionism."

I humbly ask that these traitors be shunned and placed in cherem. They have Jewish blood on their hands and should be excommunicated from all Jewish groups and sects.

I welcome your comments.

I agree that such people must be ostracized.

"Yemach Shemam", however, may be too harsh. That phrase should be reserved for Reshaim Gemurim like Hitler, Stalin, Sadaam, and Ahmadinejad, yemach Shemam.

Rather, we ask that they do Teshuva, and the sooner the better.

I hear what you are saying. I would love them to renounce their evil ways, but for now they are endangering Jews and that cannot be ignored.
