Rav Amar Reportedly Says Mosque Arson May Be Blood Libel


rabbi-shlomo-amarIsraeli Chief Sephardic Rabbi Rav Shlomo Amar today said that the mosque arson that took place in Tuba Zangria overnight Sunday may have been a blood libel, Army Radio reported on Monday, citing an interview on a charedi radio station.

“We have experience in these things in the past. We cannot be sure that there was not some malicious plan to stir up hatred between Jews and Arabs,” Rav Amar was quoted as saying.

  1. Most likely. We know they’ve done that before and, of course, the suicide(homicide) bombings that they are notorious for. The ‘settlers’ do not commit crimes of violence; in fact, most of them try to have good relations with any of the arabs living in the area and only when they are shown that they cannot be trusted, do they learn not to deal with them. This might also be the work of the shabak to cause chaos. Who knows! The Rabbi is probably right!
