    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...

    She prayed for peace that day. But the sage that Robin Brown carried on a bird-watching outing in Weston landed her in jail on felony charges of marijuana possession. Now she is suing over the wrongful arrest. "I'm not out for revenge," said Brown, 49, a soft-spoken woman from Montana who moved to Hollywood in 2007. "I'm trying to bring information to light so that it doesn't happen to anyone else." Sheriff's Deputy Dominic Raimondi, 51, mistook Brown's sage for marijuana, then searched her car and found more. His field kit said the sage — purchased at an airport gift...

    Two things are clear from Saturday's ABC News town hall meeting in Tucson. One: Tucsonans are eager to move forward and recover from last week's horrible shooting rampage. And two: that process is going to be slow and painful. That latter point was driven home by the arrest of a shooting victim, who threatened a speaker during the taping of the program. ABC News Anchor Christiane Amanpour hosted the remarkable gathering of victims, heroes, witnesses and first responders. It was the first time most of them had been together since Jared Lee Loughner opened fire in a Safeway parking lot,...

While there are some that would welcome this shift, the truth is that throughout history the societies that have experienced the greatest economic...
