Persecution of Body of Messiah in Israel

by; Calev Myers

Dear Brothers,

Many of you have heard of the demonstration of the Ultra-Orthodox community which took place on 22.02.11 in Ashdod. The demonstration was organized by Yad L’Achim, an organization whose specific goal was to harm and scare the Messianic Jewish community in the city of Ashdod.

During the demonstration the speakers espoused words of hate against the believers, including Ashkenazi Chief Rabbi of Ashdod, Yosef Sheinin who equated the Messianic Jewish community to Hitler. In addition, speakers made calls to expel the “missionaries” from the country, through the allegation that they seek to destroy all traces of the people of Israel.

Please find here a video of the speeches made at the demonstration, so you can have your own impression of the event: http://vimeo.com/20604297

The demonstration was covered by the local media, some of which even posted online surveys evaluating the public opinion about the approach and manner of expression that took place:

We urge as many people as possible to click on the above link and vote, in order that we may influence the survey results, and accordingly, public opinion.

Moreover, and more importantly, it our legal understanding that the content of this demonstration stands in contradiction to the criminal laws prohibiting incitement to racism and violence. Given the above violation, we urge that as many people as possible file a formal complaint to the police against the Chief Rabbi of Ashdod.

All you need to do is take quotes from the video, go to the police station nearest your home and request to file a complaint, and hand them the a copy of the video as an attachment to your complaint.

A police officer will register the complaint on the spot, and hand you a “certificate for a filed complaint.”

Attached you’ll find an example copy of a complaint.

All complaints (the more the better) will be sent to the Ashdod police station where officers shall be required to summon Rabbi Yosef Sheinin for questioning.

In the event that the Police decide not to open an investigation, we will employ another method through legal channels before the Attorney General, the Legal Advisor of the Government, and the High Court of Justice to demand an investigation of this incitement.

Blessings,

Calev

    It’s actually very complicated in this full of activity life to listen news on Television, so I simply use the web for that purpose, and get the newest news.
