Abstract:

"Zionism. The untouchable topic. "Lack of knowledge has led to very confused ideas about religion, even among the chareidim." "Even talmidei chachamim, rabbonim, and tzaddikim are not imbued with the [proper] understanding." "Sadly, even in our own circles, the mold for shaping public opinion lies in the hands of the state of Israel." "Regardless of how much we talk about [Zionism] and people listen and understand, nevertheless, in their hearts, they still kiss the idol." "There are only a few groups left that do not follow after the Eigel ... But the rest of the chareidim travel on the train of Zionism ..." These are some of the sentiments expressed by gedolei Yisroel specifically regarding Zionist hashkafos and the Torah community, both now and in the past. For those who find these statements more than a little disquieting, for those who can accept that what many think are Torah hashkafos are actually their opposite - and want to know the truth ... The Empty Wagon will open that door."--Jacket.
