“Israel cannot build any state before the return of Jesus” – Rabbi Yisroel David Weiss of Neturai Karta.

The online news outlet for Hezbollah in Lebanon is reporting that while on a visit with Sheikh Nabil Qaouk,  Deputy Head of the Hizbullah Executive Council, a member of a delegation of Anti Zionist Rabbis asserted that a Jewish state cannot be established “before the return of Jesus.”

 The head of the Jewish delegation, Yisroel Dovid Weiss of Neturai Karta, who came to Lebanon to take part in the Global March to Jerusalem, stated, “It is very important to be here in Beirut as we believe that the Jewish identity has been stolen, and kidnapped by the Zionists.”

Weiss went on to praise “the resistance’s victories, calling for the downfall of the so-called “Israeli” state. He stressed that due to the Jews’ sins, they were banished from the land of “Israel”, confirming that “Israel” cannot build any state before the return of Jesus (PBUH).” 

While Rabbi Weiss’s departure from mainstream Judaism is well known through his attendance at a Holocaust Denial conference and  meetings with Arafat and Ahmadinejad,  many were shocked to hear of his public assertion of his belief in Jesus as the Messiah.
