Funding the fanatics

The anti-Zionist (and supposedly ultra-orthodox) Jewish Group Neturai Karta have been much in the news recently. For example, on Purim they burnt Israeli flags outside the (Jewish) Simon Marks Primary School in Hackney and they recently went to Iran to praise that country's attempts to wipe Israel off the map and deny the Holocaust. The fact that it turns out that the Union of Orthodox Hebrew Congregations has recently given grants worth some £60,000 to this group is a bit hard to stomach. Especially as the most recent grant was given this March, about the same time as their visit to Iran. Courtesy of MEMRI here are two of the Rabbis interviewed in Iran. This is a video you must watch. Nice to know that we are funding these guys.
