Hasidic Jewish group Neturei Karta and Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad had a friendly, 40-minute sit-down meeting this past week in a New York hotel. Ahmadinejad reportedly received his guests warmly, as the latter presented him with a silver award and described the Holocaust-denier as “exemplary” in his criticism of Zionism and his warmth for the Jewish people.
And boy did they have lots to talk about!! Well, actually, they only had one thing to talk about — their common hatred of Israel – but they both feel very strongly about it.
Neturei Karta opposes Zionism and calls for the dismantling of the State of Israel, in the belief that Jews are forbidden to have their own state until the coming of the Messiah. Or something. And Mahmoud is a notorious Holocaust denier who wants Israel “annihilated” and thinks Jews are all criminals.
So… two peas in a pod? We guess? We don’t even know. This is just weird.
