Last evening I studied a sefer and I came upon the verse in the Torah that says HaShem controls the hearts/minds of the 'kings/rulers' of the world.
That night I dreamed that I was invited by friends to Israel Prime Minister residence. I spoke to PM Olmert trying to convince him that it's ridiculous and unreasonable for him to want to give more land/gifts to the Arabs. We had a very friendly conversation but he suddenly had to leave to a "meeting" work. When he returned, I tried to talk to him again ...I woke up.

"The Arab nation never harmed the Jewish People until the advent of Zionist nationalism."
Rabbi Yissachar Dov of Belz
" There could be, before the arrival of Moshiach, that the Satan should succeed, and the evildoers should get a State in the Land of Israel. Their state would be a big danger for every Jew in material and spiritual matters."
Rabbi Tzadok Hakohen of Lublin
"The whole purpose of the Redemption is to improve ours ways and observe the Torah, If zionists gain dominion, they will seek to remove from the hearts of Israel belief in HaShem and in the truth of the Torah.
The intent of these inciters and seducers is to cast Israel into infidelity, with destruction."
Rabbi Avraham Yoshe Freund of Nasod (said it before Neila prayer on Yom Kippur)
"It is not because they are Zionists that they are evildoers. It is because they are evildoers that they are Zionists."
Rabbi Chaim Soloveichik of Brisk
"The Zionists do not make Jews heretics in order to have a state, they want a state in order to make Jews into heretics!" "The Jewish people have suffered many (spiritual) plagues -- the Sadducees, Karaites, Hellenisers, Shabbatai Zvi, Enlightenment, Reform and many others. But the strongest of them all is Zionism."
Chofetz Chaim , Rabbi Yisrael Meir Hakohen
"Whoever reads the words of the zionists will know that even the best of the other peoples (non-Jews) will be turned into our enemies."
Reb Shalom Dov Ber from Lubavitch
"Those who assist the Zionists will pay at the Day of Judgment, because they are causing the masses to sin. Therefore, whoever is on the side of G-d and his Torah shall not join with evildoers and not become attached to them. On the contrary, they should oppose them as much as possible."
Rabbi Shaul Brach
"Our brethren in America who support the Zionist heresy in the Holy Land are concerned, if they don't face up to the truth, in liberal AMERICA they will quickly feel the effects of the verse, "With anger poured out will I rule over you." "May G-d have mercy.”
The Rabbi of Munkatch, Chaim Elazar Shapiro
"The Zionists heretic true interest are to be masters of power, money and honor. Woes to us that such things have arisen in our generation.”
Chief Rabbi Yosef Tzvi Dushinsky
November of 1947, Rav Dushinsky appealed, in the name of 60,000 Jewish Orthodox residents, to the United Nations by cable and a memorandum following, that "Jerusalem should not be included in the Jewish state and should be given international status."

A very distressed disciple of the Chazon Ish mentioned that a day does not go by without a Jew being killed by an Arab; the Chazon Ish, admonished him and said,
"Why aren't you at all worried that tens of thousands of Jewish children receive an education on non-belief, which is as burning the soul and the body. Is not this mass murder worse than the killings of the Arabs? Our sages have clearly expressed that he who makes someone sin is worse than he who kills him."
"Moshiach will not take over from them (zionists), something will happen in the interim."
"One clear day they will open the windows and they will see 'no more State'."
Reb A. Y. Weintraub
The only actual difference with the formation of the Zionist State is, that before this they were hoodlums without arms, and now the hoodlums have arm.
Rabbi Michael Dov Weissmandl (Dean of Nitra Yeshiva)
The Jewish people must reject, outright, a "Jewish State".
Let it be clearly understood that never in Jewish history (even in the time of Jeroboam or Achav) have such hostile atheists stood at the helm of the Jewish people as today.
How can we plead to the Almighty for mercy while we tolerate these vile, "wicked" leaders as spokesmen! Beloved brothers - let us cleanse our ranks and cleanse our midst; let us entreat the Almighty through prayer, repentance, and fulfillment of mitzvos that He alone redeem us, immediately.
Rabbi Pardes describing what he saw at the Convention:
“Rabbi Wasserman, Rabbi Kotler, Rabbi Rottenberg from Antwerp, rabbis from Czechoslovakia and Hungary were unanimous in rejecting any proposal for a “Jewish State” on either side of the Jordan River, even if it were established as a religious state because such a regime would be a form of heresy in our faith in the belief in the coming of the Messiah, and especially since this little “Jewish” state would be built on heresy and desecration of the Name of G-d."
Rabbi Mordechai Gifter (Dean of Telshe Yeshiva, Cleveland Ohio)
"The truth is that Zionism is a curse, and that's the way it is. Zionism is murder! And that's what it really is, because it is true! Who threw the Jews into the ocean when they wanted to travel to Eretz Yisroel in 1941? Who sank the boat (called the 'Patria') with about 1000 Jews on it? Who? The Nazis? Zionists did it! Yes, the Zionists!."
Rabbi Baruch Kaplan
"Everyone should know who the murderers are – the Zionists are the biggest murderers in the world, who refuse to let the Jewish People live in peace either physically or spiritually!”
Rabbinical Orthodox Court Hungary (Statement issued 1925)
"Association with the Zionists is forbidden according to the Torah and our tradition. Zionism is a disgusting abomination."
Rabbi Shaul Brach
“Since the dawn of the Zionist movement, suffering has not ceased to exist in the world. All the warnings of the Torah have been fulfilled in their details among our People all over the world. For a believer it is no surprise that the Zionists are the same as the heretics at the time of the Destruction of the Temple. Thus, divine judgment has been unleashed on the entire world.”
The Poneveczer Rav built many yeshivos using money from the Zionist government. Every time he made a gathering to celebrate the laying of the cornerstone of one of his buildings, a small group of Neturei Karta members would attend, holding signs saying that they protested
against the acceptance of the money. Their protests often disturbed the festivities. Someone asked the Poneveczer Rav, "Why don't you do something about it? Make sure they don't come!" "If they wouldn't come on their own," answered the Poneveczcer Rav, "I would pay them to come! I want everyone to know that what I'm doing is only bedieved - not the right way to do things, but necessary because of the difficulty of the times."
"One Cow in Palestine is worth more than all the Jews in Poland"
Izaak Greenbaum - head of Jewish Agency Rescue Committee February 18, 1943
Theodor Herzl (1860-1904), the founder of modern Zionism, recognized that anti-Semitism would further his cause, the creation of a separate state for Jews. To solve the Jewish Question, he maintained “we must, above all, make it an international political issue.” Herzl wrote that Zionism offered the world a welcome “final solution of the Jewish question.” In his “Diaries”, page 19, Herzl stated “Anti-Semites will become our surest friends, anti-Semitic countries our allies.”
