Tel Aviv - Vandals Torch Torah Seforim At Shas Headquarters In Or Yehuda
Tel Aviv - Tensions have flared and smear campaigns have taken hold in Israel ahead of the opening of polls in the Israeli national elections.
Unidentified vandals set fire to several Torah books at the Shas party headquarters in Or Yehuda on Saturday night, Israel Radio reported.
Shas MK Ariel Atias said the incident was a result of months of incitement against spiritual leader Rabbi Ovadia Yosef and the Shas movement.
Attias said that we have seen in the past that words can become actions, and now we see that again. He added that the scenes of vandalism are reminiscent of scenes the Jewish people would prefer to forget, Israel Radio quoted him as saying.
