There's a group out there called the Neturei Karta. They're religious Jews - chassidim - against zionism. There's a place for them, and I respect their viewpoint. What I don't respect is their "we're more Jewish than you" attitude. I have seen literature where they say things like, "REAL Jews don't support Israel." Well, what am I? A fake Jew? And what about that little Yiddle eating her bacon? She's not a real Jew? Jews who aren't as observant as you, who don't believe like you do, aren't for real? What kind of narrishkeit is THAT? And here's another thing I don't like about these guys: They kiss Palestinian tuchas. They have no problem marching right next to Palestinian flags, being the "real Jews" that they are. Marching next to the people who want Jews wiped off the planet. Anyway, here's a little clip of these guys, and a "fake" Jew who taunts them. They ask him, where's your tzitsis? Why don't you cover your head if you're a Jew? I hate that attitude. Let me tell you something, you Neturei Karta "chassidim." You know what the Ba'al Shem Tov preached? Ahavas Yisroel. That's right, buddy. LOVE YOUR FELLOW JEW. Including the one who's not wearing tzitsis.
(P.S. I love the "fake" Jew. Isn't he a riot? Okay - he needs to show some Ahavas Yisroel, too.)
