   Anti-Zionist polemic attacking Agudat Israel for forsaking their principles. Although undated it can not have been written later than 1933, for it refers to the Hafez Hayyim with Shlita. It calls for Jerusalem to awaken, asking does not your heart flow blood on the scandalous and base deeds that were done and continue to be done during these latter times. Do not your eyes flow with tears on the profanation of the honor of Israel, Torah, and the living God, by these base men, who break the yoke of ethics, and tear down the yoke, digging with axes to bury the Torah. The subject of this bitter polemic is Agudat Israel, excoriated in the strongest language. It calls on the Jews of Jerusalem to awaken, to remove this “malignant leprosy” (Leviticus) from our midst. Know that they are a danger to the people of Israel, and specifically to the education of the Heredim and the building of the land of the Patriarchs. It refers to the Hafez Hayyim who warned against this base group, and woe, the end of this group is to apostatize. It calls for separating from this evil congregation.
