    Rav Ya’akov Ariel, the Rabbi of Ramat Gan, said Tuesday that while he disagrees with the opinions expressed in the book Torat HaMelech, they are not a matter for the police. Police stopped Rav Dov Lior’s car Monday morning as he was driving in Gush Etzion and took him to questioning, in an act that has caused extreme pain and anger in the religious public. Rav Lior, a highly respected sage and the Rabbi of Kiryat Arba, was questioned regarding the halakhic approbation he wrote at the beginning of a book called Torat HaMelech, which was written by another rabbi....

    The Ministry of Justice issued a statement Tuesday justifying the arrest of Rav Dov Lior Monday as he was driving down a highway. “No one is above the law,” the Ministry stated, and refused to apologize for what many called an "abduction." The arrest caused fury in the religious-Zionist sector, with some demanding an official apology. "The arrest warrant against Rav Lior was issued a long time ago with the knowledge and approval of the Attorney General, the State Attorney and the Prosecution, after Rav Lior refused to show up for questioning," the statement explained. “In a state where the...

Christians should certainly take notice of this legislation however as the ramifications of similar laws were on display in the Cumbrian...

Messer is one of several political, legal and financial leaders who have been charged with bribery in the huge Holyland apartment project in Jerusalem. Several steps in its approval coincided with Olmert’s tenure as mayor of the capital and when he was Ministry of Industry, Trade and Labor in the Sharon...
