Rov of Shomron: “Whoever Harms Migron, His Hand Will be Chopped Off”


rabbi-elyakim-levanonRav Elyakim Levanon, rov of Shomron, has drawn some criticism – as well as some support – when he spoke against the planned eviction of the residents of Migron. “There is justice and there is a Judge,” said Rav Levanon. “Whoever lifts his hand upon Migron, his hand will be chopped off,” he said, “and the prime minister should know this too.”

Arutz Sheva reports that Rav Levanon’s wording is an exact copy of the words used several years ago by former Supreme Court Judge Mishael Heshin against then-Minister of Justice Daniel Friedman. The only difference is that Heshin’s warning was directed against “whoever lifts his hand upon the Supreme Court.”
