What's the reason not to visit the kosel?

I believe since it was taken over by Israel and it was the most symbolic site annexed during the six day war, we give them support by visiting the site *in his opinion*-
And that's something we shouldn't do in his opinion.

Why is it different than the rest of the old city?
Have you really never seen it with your own eyes?

The difference is the symbolism.

Satmar guys see the Kosel, they just don't go into the praying area.

We're not talking about extremists here, he asked about people who follow what the Satmar rabbi said. And he never said not to go to old city.

Symbolism as Joe said.

Have you really never seen it with your own eyes?
Sure I did.
He never said not to see it.
Love me or hate me. I still love you.

A Satmer Chasid went to Israel. when he got back the Rebbe asked him if he went to the Kosel, the Chasid answered, "Rebbe, ich hab geven in ergere mekomos!".

Sounds like they'll go to the Kosel because the bus is cheaper than to Kever Rochel

All kidding aside, I have Satmar friends who will go to Sporting events, Bars and Movie Theaters but if you ask them about going to the Kosel they'll tell you that you're nuts
yup everything that's wrong with the chassidishe world today, me included

I don't understand why s/t conquered in 1967 is any worse than something conquered in 1948.
Same exact army fought in each war.
