Yisroel Dovid Weiss - Anti-Zionist Campaigning

Anti-Zionist Campaigning

Weiss often speaks at rallies and conferences in the United States and internationally, criticizing Israel and Zionism. In 2001 he attended the UN-organized World Conference against Racism in Durban, South Africa, as part of the Islamic Human Rights Commission delegation. During the conference, US and Israeli delegates walked out in protest of alleged singling out of Israel.

In an interview with Inminds.co.uk, a pro-Palestinian Website, Weiss stated that "We are always a thorn on their (Zionist) side... they are afraid of us...". Weiss also praised Iran, stating that:

"When we traveled to Iran, the humbleness we found ... it is a country where people are God fearing... they believe in God and they serve God... you can see the difference between that society and the society here – is so great, where you have television, immorality, immodesty and so forth. Your children grow up with they say democracy but democracy originally meant freedom to serve God... but unfortunately today many are preaching freedom to exclude God, in other words free from God..."

In the same interview, Weiss stated that:

"The only reason the Zionists are able to hold the Jewish people in their grasp is because their propaganda machines are busy explaining to the Jews that it's too late, even if you're not a Zionist, the Arabs hate you so much today that if you return the land they will, God forbid, slaughter you, and that today is the strongest argument that they have to convince Jews to support their Zionist state. This is the trap the Zionists want people to fall into so it is important for the Muslim people to get out there and make it understood that it is not the danger that is being portrayed by the Zionists."

In November 2006, Weiss stated at a protest in New York City that:

"Zionism is a fundamentally heretical movement which denies the Divine imperative that Jews remain in exile until the day when all mankind will be miraculously redeemed."
