Police Want Rabbi Metzger on Trial for Bribery Charges

Police from Israel’s Major Crime Unit have recommended that former Ashkenazi Chief Rabbi Yona Metzger be put on trial for charges of bribery, money laundering and breach of public trust.

The recommendation revealed more details of alleged criminal violations, including the rabbi’s allegedly pocketing money for his participation in a ceremony in Poland marking 70 years since the Warsaw Ghetto Rebellion and for speeding up conversions.

As previously reported, the rabbi also is accused of putting in his personal pocket half of funds that were raised for charities, including seminaries and a yeshiva.

    This administration got into power by bribery !! All the promises of free stuff , better this and that ( insurance , job pay etc.) so I guess it is called ' follow the leader '

  2. Anonymous says:

    When are the police going to protect the citizens from the Arab rock throwers and murderers on the roads? When are the courts going to put major crooks like Olmert behind bars? The Leftist courts and leftist police are selective in who they prosecute.

  3. Aldo Mimoun says:

    Read my previous comments, that says it all. Rabbis want money,money means power,power means control. That is a fact of all religions.
