Neturei Karta: No soldier, police costumes


JERUSALEM (JTA) — The leaders of the anti-Zionist Neturei Karta urged their followers not to dress up as soldiers, policemen or rescue workers on Purim.

The leaders said in a pamphlet titled "On Purim I Do Not Wear Zionist Outfits" that wearing the "impure symbols" of the secular Zionist state was as bad as dressing up as "pagan priests," Ynet reported.

Such costumes are popular among the fervently Orthodox youth on Purim.
