The followers of Israel DeHaan, the slain Agudath Israel leader, have issued an anonymous leaflet in Yiddish, several thousands of which have been circulated in New York, under the headline: “The Blood of the Saint Jacob Israel DeHaan Cries aloud, Shma Yisroel.”
The leaflet asks why DeHaan was slain and states that: “Because he fought heroically for the liberation of the Agendath Israel, which stands for a life of independence from the Torahless Zionists, who use violence to enslave the pious.”
The anonymous leaflet urges the pious Jews to “awake for our life is in danger.”
