“He Who Destroys Homes is Not Worthy of Having a Home”


The Rabbi of the central Samarian community of Amona, Rabbi Yair Frank, responded this morning to the announcement of Former Prime Minister Ehud Olmert’s conviction, in light of his being responsible for the 2006 destruction of the community.

Rabbi Frank said, “Eight years ago a neighborhood was destroyed in Amona with terrible violence... Ehud Olmert was directly in charge of the initiative… Since then we have waiting for this ruling, as he who destroys the homes of Jews in Israel does not deserve to have a home himself and should be sent to prison.”
