Anti-Zionist Jews supporting Holocaust denial
Ynet News reported Tuesday that surprisingly enough, there is a group of Jews that flew to Tehran to support Ahmadinejad and his "investigative" Holocaust conference. Members of the Neturei Karta, a Jewish Haredi fringe group that vehemently opposes forming any Jewish state before the Messiah comes, are at the conference because they "share a common platform with Ahmadinejad when it comes to the so-called myth the Zionist movement created around the Holocaust," according to Israel Hirsch, a member of Neturei Karta who lives in Jerusalem. "They wanted to make it clear in Tehran that Zionism uses the Holocaust as an excuse for the existence of the Zionist state in the Land of Israel."

Former chief rabbi of Israel and current chief rabbi of Tel Aviv Israel Lau spoke with Ynet
, and is appalled with the anti-Zionist group's stance and actions. He also doesn't buy the explanations provided by the Jewish conference guests that the conference does not aim to deny the Holocaust, but to oppose Zionism. According to Lau, a Holocaust survivor himself, "This is something not tolerated by the intellect, something that is complete insanity, truly chaos. If it could be that any Jew, for whatever reason, who is capable of shaking the hand of a Holocaust denier in a generation when there are still people with numbers tattooed on their arms among us – this is insanity that not only has no justification, but also no explanation."
