(EOZ)YNet says:

Jordanian news sites have reported Friday afternoon that some 20,000 people are participating in a mass procession in Jordan. The protesters gathered at Jesus’s baptism site, and are planning to march towards the border with Israel. Increased security presence was reported in the area.
According to reports, participants were yelling “where is the Arab League on Jerusalem?” and waving Jordanian and Palestinian flags alongside signs with anti-Israeli slogans.
Four rabbis from the extremist anti-Zionist Neturei Karta sect were also taking part in the march and carried signs reading: “Judaism demands the liberation of Jerusalem and all of Palestine.”
Several rally participants expressed anger over the presence of Neturei Karta members, and a verbal altercation erupted between the two groups.

(details) A Google search shows several articles that seem to indicate that the Neturei Karta nuts were actually beaten, quoting the official Petra news agency – but those articles have been updated and scrubbed without any mention of the NK members at all!
One comment remains on the Jordanzad site which scrubbed mention of the group. The commenter said “We Arabs will always calculate wrong .. there are rabbis involved with us against the occupation and we beat them and abuse them, how long will we be this stupid?

ouch


Neturei Karta Condemns Megillat Esther

March 20, 2011

I’m almost 85% sure this is a joke, but these NK guys have written crazier things.

Rabbi Immanuel Kapowitz, Chief Rabbi of Neturei Karta issued the following statement at the al Iqwa Mosque in Teheran during an ecumenical dinner with Imam Faisal Shelahmazal this morninng, March 20.

On behalf of the entire membership of Neturei Karta, comprising the overwhelming majority of one tenth of a quarter percent of all Jewish people in Monsey, we wish to condemn in the strongest terms the reading of the so called Megillas Esther, a controversial book that was included in many editions of Tanach, and considered a gratuitous provocation to the peace loving people of Iran and their honestly elected President Mahmoud, Ahmadinejad, who has graciously paid for our tickets to Teheran, as well as a number of other expenses in our struggle.
This book, the Book of Esther, deals with a beauty contest winner who married a gentile, and calls for the slaughter of peace loving Iranians rather than relying upon proper Iranian government authorities. The book condones Jewish militancy and armed aggression when we are guests in a land not our own. Throughout the ages, this book has offended the leadership of nations within whose borders we have lived. Indeed Germany, a country in which Jews lived in peace for hundreds of years, banned the reading of this provoicative book during a troubled 12 year period in our history in that country.
We call upon all Jews not to provoke our gentile neighbours and rulers such as Mahmoud Ahmadinejad by hoooting derisively at his esteemed ancestor Haman Haagagi, who was as great a man in Iran as Henry Kissinger was in our time.
It is well known that Mordechai HaYehudi, the uncle of Esther, did not wear a shtreimel or even speak Yiddish, making his pronouncements in the “Book of Esther” extremely suspect. Additionally, the laws and customs of modern day Iran bar the consumption of alcohol, making the drunkenness associated with this so called holiday unthinkable.
We hope that all Jews will follow our psak, endorsed by no less an authority than the Cheeseburger Rebbe, Rabbi Shaya Gatz. The proper way to observe this day is to stay home, drink a glass of tea and donate money to pay for the Israeli flags that we burn regularly at our mass demonstrations.
Sincerely,
Immanuel Kapowitz
Shaya Gatz
