Honenu: Govt. Has 'Declared War' Against Loyal Jews

Director of the Honenu legal rights group, Shmuel Medad, said Thursday that the government's petition against the release of Tzviya Sariel meant that the government, like the army, "has declared war against a Jewish community in Israel that is loyal to the state and the Word of G-d, and agrees that the army and the legal system are to be respected, even if they contradict Jewish law and work against their interests.

"We congratulate people like Tzviya Sariel and Rabbi Melamed who are ready to pay a price for the entire Jewish people," Medad said.
