Rabbi Lior: No Need to Worry about Iran Threat

Friday, August 24th, 2012

The Iran threat does not scare Rabbi Dov Lior. The rabbi of Kiryat Arba/Hebron believes that it is forbidden, and there is actually no reason to leave Israel because of a life-threatening situation.

In a halachic response made public in the B’sheva newspaper, Rabbi Lior wrote that “it is clear that the goyim are always plotting and have always been plotting . . . You can go by Auschwitz and see that in the diaspora it’s not safer.”

According to Rabbi Lior, “There’s no justification in running away from Eretz Yisrael because of something like this. We firmly believe that “Hashem will not forsake His nation or abandon His heritage.”

“We believe that the Jewish nation . . . will be saved in any case,” Rabbi Lior stated. “We have a Divine promise about our nation’s existence and, therefore, we don’t have to be concerned about such things.”

Hebron Jew Arrested for Refusing to Sign Own Restraining Order

Tuesday, May 8th, 2012

A Hebron resident summoned for routine interrogation was asked to sign a restraining order banning him from Mitzpe Avichai, an outpost of Kiryat Arba-Hebron. When he refused, he was arrested for 24 hours, Honenu reports.

Several days ago A., a resident of Hebron, was summoned for interrogation on Tuesday at the Hebron Police Station. A. arrived at the police station as requested and was interrogated on suspicion of illegally staying at Mitzpe Avichai. According to Police, the site is a closed military zone.

A., who was asked to sign of his own volition a restraining order banning him for 15 days from the site on bail, refused, claiming that the closed military zone order excludes residents of the outpost. According to him he has been living in Mitzpe Avichai for approximately three years.

In response to A.’s refusal the police officer decided immediately to arrest him for 24 hours. A Honenu attorney filed an appeal on the remand and a deliberation will take place in court late Tuesday.
