Why is this Rabbi being detained in Israel?

http://news.yahoo.com/s/ap/20100819/ap_on_re_mi_ea...

This is nothing new. Why would he be detained when the Talmud says the same kind of stuff?

    He is being arrested because he is a rabid racist using hate speech! The Talmud does NOT say anything even remotely resembling what he says or you are trying to allege!

    Of course you will find the lies abut the contents of the talmud on amny anti-Semitic web pages and forums but one would hope people know better than to take hate sites seriously!

    The Talmud are human derived laws. The laws that people create are not always the will of God. Pharisees and Saducees made many rules even related to the sabbath...etc... that were loopholes around God's laws. Look up corban. Also, they added things that God never said. When Jesus arrived, He broke some of their laws and they accused Him of breaking God's laws.

    It is good that this guy is being detained, that apparently means that people are generally not in agreement with what this guy is saying. I would only start wondering if people were on board with this.

    Because it is a current writing and interpretation.

    Your always given more latitude on ancient writings and if you remain less vocal about it.

    Such is life. Free speech as long as you don't actually try to use it.

    As blind and deaf as they try to be, Israeli politicians can't completely ignore world opinion, especially from countries that send them money. Besides, many Israelis are NOT rabid Zionists.
