VICE embeds with the London branch of the Neturei Karta, a group of controversial ultra-Orthodox Jews who campaign against Zionism and for the immediate dismantling of the State of Israel.

Because of their unusual views, and support of politicians like ex-Iranian president Mahmoud Ahmadinejad and groups like the Hungarian far-right Jobbik Party, other Jewish people often label them as extremists.

Reporter Milène Larsson goes inside this secretive community to understand why the Jewish group openly burns Israeli flags and joins Palestinians protesting Israeli occupation.
