Accused of anti-Semitism, Ahmadinejad meets Jews

Iran's President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad (R) speaks as Rabbi Moshe Ber Beck of Neturei Karta, a fringe Ultra-Orthodox movement within the anti-Zionist bloc, listens during a meeting in New York, September 24, 2008. (Brendan McDermid/Reuters)

The group is a small anti-Zionist organization that says it adheres strictly to the Torah, the Jewish holy book, which it says forbids the establishment of a Jewish state before the coming of the Messiah. It supports Palestinian sovereignty over the Holy Land and financial restitution for past losses.

Ever wonder why we never hear about the Neturei Karta's call for Israel to be "wiped off the face of the earth?" After all, these folks really believe Israel shouldn't exist.
