Jewish rabbis reportedly approve vigilante revenge for Jerusalem shooting

March 12, 2008 11:20 A.M. (Updated: March 12, 2008 11:20 A.M.)
Bethlehem - Ma'an - Two prominent rabbis have reportedly sanctioned acts of violent retribution for the deadly attack on the Mercaz Harav yeshiva in Jerusalem last week.

Israeli Channel 1 reported on Tuesday that several men approached Rabbi Bnei Brak and another right-wing rabbi, seeking their approval for acts of revenge which they felt the Israeli military would not carry out on its own.

The rabbis reportedly gave religious approval to three of the men to carry out an attack. The men reportedly suggested an attack on a Palestinian associated with the Al-Aqsa mosque in Jerusalem.

A group of Jewish men have apparently been granted religious approval to carry out an act of retribution in retaliation for the attack on the Mercaz Harav yeshiva in Jerusalem last week, Channel 1 reported Tuesday.

The Mercaz Harav school denied the report, telling the Yedioth Ahronoth newspaper, "This report is baseless, and as proof of that, no arrests have been made."
