WE THE UNDERSIGNED call upon all Orthodox institutions: Yeshivos, Organizations, Hasidic Sects and Synagogues to immediately place all members of the so-called Neturei Karta in cherem, thereby excommunicating them from the Jewish People or reaffirm the ban already in place.

The most recent act of the so-called Neturei Karta was participating in a conference in Tehran, Iran which seeks to disprove the Holocaust and the slaughter of six million Jews at the hands of the Nazis.

Their true agenda is finally clear: they do not just oppose Zionism. They oppose Judaism and the Jewish Nation.

Since they embrace our enemies, they must be counted among our enemies. It is time that all Torah observing and G-d fearing Jews place these people and their financial supporters in cherem, thereby severing them from the Jewish Nation until they publicly recant their views and repent for their heinous actions.

For those groups that have enacted the ban already (see below), WE THE UNDERSIGNED ask them to reaffirm the ban publicly and make sure it is carried out to the fullest extent.

The following is from the United Orthodox Communities of New York (2002)

URGENT MEDIA STATEMENT FROM UNITED ORTHODOX COMMUNITIES OF NEW YORK RE: NETUREI KARTA

Further to our public announcement dated 21 April 2002 [9th Iyar 5762], we hereby reiterate and declare that Charedi/Chassidic/Orthodox Jews everywhere absolutely reject the treacherous and contemptible conduct of that insignificant and irrelevant group of misfits and Mechalelei Hashem, desecraters of G-ds Name, who have again raised their ugly heads and besmirched and blackened the reputations of observant Jews worldwide.

Their joining in vigils and prayers for the arch-terrorist Yasser Arafat [may his name be blotted out] with Jew-haters of all manner, is an outrage that we cannot ignore and will not forgive. We again demand that rabbis and community leaders of all communities ensure that members of this group are refused entry to all houses of prayer.

These nefarious associates of Jewrys enemies have unfortunately again succeeded in their crazed hunger for publicity and are being depicted in local and international media-outfitted in their religious attire-bewailing the impending demise of a mass-murderer-side-by side with Palestinian Jew-haters. The shame and embarrassment to decent religious Jews worldwide is unbearable.

We repeat: this contemptible and minuscule gang of traitors to Judaism, were decades ago barred from our Synagogues and communities. Their refusal to abide by the pronouncements of religious and lay leaders of our communities has made them persona non grata.

Under no circumstances should the media insinuate that ANY of their actions are associated with the Charedi or Chassidic community

We urgently request all media outlets to highlight this fact in any report on this groups actions and to clearly state that the Neturei Karta and their advocates have been excommunicated by virtually the entire spectrum of Jewry.
