Rabbi Elhanan Beck on Israel, Zionism, Judaism and 'red cows'

Elhanan Beck, a rabbi and a member of the anti-Zionist Neturei Karta movement, stands with what he says are the vast majority of Orthodox Jews who strongly oppose Israel.

Their reason: The Jewish religious principle that Jews need to live in exile until the 'peaceful' arrival of the messiah, and because of the 'oppression' and 'brutality' that Israel was founded upon.

In this in-depth interview, Rabbi Beck discusses Israel, Zionism, Judaism and 'red cows', and reacts to what he openly calls Israel's 'genocide' in Gaza.
