A Moment of Infamy
I get why the Ultra Orthodox in general and naturei karta in particular are anti-Zionist, because they believe that God will bring the Messiah and the return of the Jewish people to Israel in his own time and He cannot be hastened. Moreover, to their minds, a secular Jewish nation in Israel is only going to delay the coming of the Messiah.
However, what I don't understand is, theologically speaking, how does Naturei Karta justify Holocaust denialism.
Or, is it only that, like Ahmadinejad, they don't believe the Holocaust should have led to the development of Israel and that Jews (except them, of course) should have stayed in exile in Europe?
Or, do they want Ahmadinejad to destroy the secular state of Israel in order to bring the apocalypse and the Jewish messiah?
In short, does anyone know what their halakhic "reasoning" is specifically for Holocaust denial, which is aberrant in an altogether different way than treating with the enemies of secular Israel, such as Arafat?
