Jewish Leaders at UN say Israel root of Anti-Semitism
A special session of the United Nations General Assembly has been held to discuss U-N efforts against anti-Semitism. However, they were challenged by a group of Jewish anti-Zionist leaders. They gathered outside the U-N headquarters to protest the General Assembly's failure to discuss one of the primary causes of anti-Semitism, that is, Israel and its crimes.

Representatives of Jews from across the world gathered for a meeting entitled "We All Stand United Against Anti-Semitism" at a special meeting of the United Nations General Assembly. But they were confronted by Orthodox Jews United Against Zionism, known as Neturei Karta. 

A group of Jews from Neturei Karta International gathered outside the United Nations to raise awareness about what they say is one of the leading causes of Anti-Semitism around the world, Israel.

According to Yisroel Dovid Wiess, prior to the creation of Israel, many Jews lived in peace with Muslims.

Weiss says that Israel's existence violates the Jewish law.

Dovid Feldman declared Zionism misrepresents itself, and has nothing to do with Judaism.

He went on to say that Israel is creating hatred and distrust for Jews around the world.

The Anti-Israeli Jews said they will continue their efforts, but expressed frustration that the US media seem to be ignoring them, and promoting the Israeli narrative instead.
