Jerusalem - Chief Rabbi of Israel Yona Metzger accompanied President Shimon Peres for a visit to the Tuba Zangaria mosque torched overnight during a “Price Tag” operation.
“We remember when our books were burnt and we cannot abide such actions against any other religion. For us – a synagogue, a mosque, a church – they are considered embassies of God, and you do not harm embassies,” said Metzger.

Funny that when Arabs attack there isn't one moslem cleric that condemns the attacks like we do.

When a gadol hador like Rav Metzger, shlita, condemns these terrorist actions by the fanatical settlers maybe the more responsible segments of the religious right wing nationalists will realize they must report such actions to the security forces. There is no issue of being a "moser" when you are in EY and you are reporting actions that could trigger a violent response by arabs that could jeopardize large numbers of yidden

The PA condemned the Aug 29th attack in Tel Aviv. If you do a search online, you will see plenty of muslim organizations condemning terror attacks. Regardless, of the sufficiency of muslims speaking out against terror, we have to do the right thing. It is foolish of us to think it is wise to do anything different. We have to put a stop to the fringe radical elements among our people. The situation is getting more extreme every day.

Though it is wise to condemn this arson attack - ethically and politically - to call a church an "embassy of G"d" is a little too politically correct. Such a place is a place of avoda zara - a mosque on the other hand, as the Muslims are clearly monotheists, could be called such an embassy.
