Neturei Karta in Iran

For those (including my brother) who were worried about Neturei Karta and their support of Iran were probably relieved to finish Messechet Ketuvot and find sources for Neturei karta, after all - doesn't דף ק"י-קי"א say:

דאמר רב יהודה כל העולה מבבל לארץ ישראל עובר בעשה שנאמר (ירמיהו כז) בבלה יובאו ושמה יהיו עד יום פקדי אותם נאם ה'

Rav Yehuda Says: Anyone who goes from Bavel to Eretz Yisrael transgresses an Aseh - "They will be brought to Bavel, and there they will be until I redeem them".

You see - by going to Iran instead of Eretz Yisrael, Neturei Karta were just showing that they posken by Rav Yehuda.

I fee MUCH happier now :)
