R. Amar: Better a Disengagement Than a Civil War

Rabbi Shlomo Amar, the Chief Sephardic Rabbi of Israel, said Sunday that he was “very opposed” to the prospect of IDF soldiers disobeying the orders of their commanders – even at the cost of Jewish communities being destroyed by order of the government.

“There can be no doubt that a civil war is the worst thing possible,” Rabbi Amar said on a visit to the Gush Katif and Northern Samaria Heritage Center in Nitzan in southern Israel.
