Rabbi Says Ramle Synagogue Fire was Arson
Local police said they believe the fire in a Ramle synagogue was started by an electrical problem. But Rabbi Rafael Sheli, says he is sure it was deliberately set on fire. Rabbi Sheli spoke with Arutz Sheva's Hebrew language news service and showed cameramen evidence that he believes shows that arsonists broke into the building. He said he didn't know who the culprits were and did not specifically accuse Arab residents of a politically motivated crime. Ramle is located near Tel Aviv and has a population of approximately 65,800 people.
