Settling scores

This story challenges any number of stereotypes:

“The Tel Aviv District Court on Tuesday sentenced Meir Amar, the son of Chief Sephardic Rabbi Shlomo Amar, to a prison term of two years and eight months.

“As part of a plea bargain, Amar was convicted of kidnapping a youth involved in a romantic relationship with his sister Ayala, as well as abuse of a minor, illegal confinement, extortion, threats, and causing bodily harm.”

Jewish extremism is as dangerous and irrational as any other religious perversion.
