Anti-Zionist Conspiracies

The Jewish blog Canonist gets into the weeds of the Muslim chaplain controversy, and notes that the most fervent anti-Zionists in the city’s employ are likely some of its Jewish chaplins who are members of the Satmar sect of Chasidism.

The anti-Israel Satmar congregated at City Hall a month ago; one man was introduced to me with a proud, “He was at the funeral of Yassir Arafat.”

UPDATE: The Politicker’s Satmar Affairs Advisor, Isac Weinberger, tells me the anti-Zionist Jews I met on the steps of City Hall that day were not in fact Satmar, but another group. As for the Satmar, “They’re anti-Zionist, but not that militant.” I will, I swear, get this all straight one day.
