Orthodox Jews against Israel

Orthodox Jews. I know nothing about them .. they seem alien, these men with black coats and long beards. But their spiritual strength and commitment to peace are obvious. They have opposed Zionism and the state of Israel from the beginning and they make it clear that Judaism is not Zionism. I have condemned the notion of a ‘chosen people’ in the past but these people undoubtedly understand their ‘chosenness’ in terms of service and humility rather than dominance and mastery.
