Associated Press, THE JERUSALEM POST Dec. 16, 2006
Six Jews who attended a Holocaust denial conference in Iran have come under
intense criticism over the visit, with one of the world's largest Hasidic
groups denouncing them as "reckless outcasts."
The Jews who went to Iran "trampled on the memory of their ancestors and
people. They embraced the disciplines and followers of their murderers,"
said a statement from the Satmar leaders of Congregation Yetev Lev in
The Jews who attended the conference are often confused with the Satmars,
who also are anti-Zionist but acknowledge that 6
million Jews died in the Holocaust.
The Satmars say there is no connection between them and Neturei Karta, a
group that sent a half-dozen delegates to this week's conference in Teheran
under the banner Jews United Against Zionism.
