- (IsraelNationalNews.com) - The principal of the Beit
Shemesh based Orot School, Rabbi Yair Bachar, and a teacher, Ronen Tzarum,
were temporarily suspended from their positions by Ministry of the Education
Director-General Ronit Tirosh after they burned a copy of the New Testamant
in the classroom last week. The bible was brought by a student who explained
it was given to him by a missionary. Tirosh indicated that a committee
will determine what action is to be taken against the two.
- From Ruth Rothschild
- Dear Mr. Rense,
- I am enclosing (above) a newspaper story which was ignored
completely by the "news" media here in the US. My sister in Israel
who sent me this incredible NEWS-story, commented that the Chief Rabbi
of the Israeli army central military base in Tel Aviv, a few years ago,
ALSO burned a copy of the New Testament Bible which he reportedly found
in the military library. That story received wide publicity in the press
in Israel but nothing outside of Israel. (The story is available in the
Archives of Yediot Aharonoth newspaper, Tel Aviv).
- It is absolutely amazing that some Jews can carry out
such book-burnings just a little over half a century after the Nazis burned
our holy books during the infamous 'Crystal Night.' I am sending you this
note to further alert Jews around the world that some of the behavior in
Israel is becoming a serious liability for us. Jewish synagogues have been
burnt to the ground in recent years as a result of Israel's activities.
The hatred practiced officially and unofficially in Israel against Moslems
and Christians in recent years is generally covered in the Israeli press,
yet the American press rarely mentions it. Your website is very well-known,
worldwide, as attempting to post all sides to important issues. I hope
that you will post the enclosed article.
