Neturei Karta is an Orthodox, non-Zionist groups of Jews with congregations in New York and Jerusalem. In its website, one can find an excerpt from Sefer Min Hametzar (page 92) by Rabbi Michael Ber Weismandel.
The excerpt is a literal translation of the letter the Jewish Rescue Committee in Czechoslovakia received from the Zionist Jewish Agency Executive Officers in Switzerland. This was in reply to the call of the Jewish Rescue Committee for help, with Documentary evidence furnished, concerning the fate of millions of Jewish people in Nazi occupied Europe.
The letter says: “So, insofar as the masses are concerned: RAK B’DAM TIHJE LAKU HAAREZ, (Eretz Yisroel will be ours only by paying with blood), but as far as our immediate circle is concerned, ATEM TAJLU. The messenger bearing this letter will supply you with funds for this purpose.” The book explains “After I accustomed myself to the peculiar writing, I trembled when I realized the import of RAK B’DAM TIHJE LANU HAAREZ. But many weeks passed, and I was still confounded by the meaning of ATEM TAJLU. Until one day, it struck me. ATEM TAJIU meant “You escape”, for the word “tiyul” (walking trip) was used by them as a euphemistic code for “escape”. They meant to say – you fifteen or twenty “party members”, escape from Czechoslovakia and save your hides. The price of Eretz Yisroel is the blood of the men and women, hoary sages, and babes in arms, – but not YOUR blood! Let us not spoil this plan by giving the Axis powers money to save Jewish lives. But for you, comrades, I have enclosed carfare for your escape.
What a nightmare! The Zionist agent “diplomat” comes to Czechoslovakia and says ‘Now is a very critical time. But comparatively speaking, it is not at all critical for you trapped Jews. For there is an emergency of far greater proportions; namely, BINYAN HA-ARETZ (the prize of Modinat Yisrael). Shed your blood cheerfully, for your blood is cheap. But for your blood, the Land (of Israel) will be ours!” The Hebrew transliteration and translation could be further improved, but overall, the assessment made is true. The Jewish leadership during WWII made an Abraham-like decision to sacrifice their flock in order to get material gains in a near future. Under the circumstances, who is to blame? Who was The Nastiest Nazi?
