(BLOG) Anti-Zionist Jews & The “Three Oaths”

"A disturbing amount of attention has been garnered in recent years by a small minority of vehemently anti-Israel religious Jews, and as a strongly philosophically Religious Zionist organization, JDL has a major stake in this debate.

As the anti-Israel religious groups have made spectacles of themselves in the media and created venues for their views online, many Jews who naturally support the Jewish state have wondered about this category of Jew and have pondered the question of how to handle this fringe element of Jewry. But not too many Jews - even seriously Torah observant Jews - know the central religious justification for why these groups exist.

Moreover, many observant Jews also don’t realize that the same religious justification used by the anti-Zionist Orthodox Jews is also one used by many rabbis in Galut (the Exile) for disregarding the explicit Torah mitzvot concerning the conquest of Eretz Yisrael."
