Rabbinical assembly decries settler violence in W. Bank


(jpost.com) The Rabbinical Assembly decried Tuesday the series of violent acts carried out by "extremist Israeli Jews" this past week, and applauded Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu's efforts to curb such incidents from taking place.
According to the assembly, an international consortium of rabbis from the conservative movement, the right-wing activists "have greatly dishonored those with whom they disagree."
 The assembly said it appreciated Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu's accepting of a plan to stop the actions of such activists, including a mandate to bring perpetrators of activist violence to court, increasing investigative units and tasking the IDF to detain demonstrators.

it would be nice if this could be detailed as to what supposed wrong has been done. The law in Israel has wronged the settlers. It'd be nice if we knew what violence is being claimed so that an outsider can garner if it is worthy of state reprimanding. Personally my differences with the government are enough that I don't want to go to my homeland... even if I could afford it... and frankly I'd like a job offer and I find it annoying that the state of Israel has not made any offers... merely insults to Jews in the Galut.
