Rabbi Ovadia Yosef: Hands Off Migron!


Rabbi Ovadia Yosef called, Friday, on Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu, Interior Minister Eli Yishai and Knesset members to protect Jewish communities in Judea and Samaria, adding, specifically, that a hand should not be lifted against the Binyamin-region community of Migron, which has been hit by a number of government demolitions in recent months.

The call was written on signs posted in the Jerusalem neighborhood of Kiryat Moshe, proclaiming it to be a Torah opinion. The signs noted that the Shas party spiritual advisor had met with representatives of the communities to give them strength and said that any blow against their homes was an unforgiveable injustice.
