Jew Leader Says Burning Christian Churches is a Good Idea

The leader of a far-Right Israeli group has risked arrest by apparently voicing support for arson attacks on Christian churches amid an official crackdown on Jewish extremism.

Benzi Gopstein, the outspoken head of Lehava – which has drawn notoriety for its violent assaults on Jewish-Arab assimilation – made the remarks at a panel discussion for Jewish yeshiva students when asked by a fellow panelist if he believed burning down churches in Israel was justified.

He later tried to evade accusations of inciting his followers to fire-raise, saying it was the government’s responsibility to carry out what he presented as a religious teaching of the 12th century Jewish philosopher, Maimonides.

“Did the Rambam [Maimonides] rule to destroy [idol worship] or not? Idol worship must be destroyed. It’s simply yes – what’s the question?” Mr Gopstein told the panel.

His comment alarmed his questioner Benny Rabinovich, a journalist, who told him: “Benzi, I must say I’m really shocked by what you’re saying here. You are essentially saying we must go out and burn down churches. You’re saying something insane here.”

Told by another panelist, Moshe Klein, rabbi of Israel’s Haddash medical centres, that the discussion was being filmed and that his remarks could lead to his arrest, Mr Gopstein answered: “That’s the last thing that concerns me. If this is truth, I’m prepared to sit in jail 50 years for it.”

  1. I don’t know Hebrew either. Only I know that from ancient times in the Scriptures have used that for His name.

    But even though I don’t know Hebrew or Greek, I know God, so His name, when I call it, does not bring a feeling of unfamiliarity to me, even if it comes to me through a people whose language I can’t speak.

    You ask how I know Yaweh is His name. Not by the “oral tradition” of the Jews, or by their Talmud, which I have never touched. Here are fragments of the Septuagint (the last divinely inspired copy of the Old Covenant, quoted extensively by Jesus and the apostles) which are said to use YAWEH instead of the more common Greek substitution, Kurios/LORD.

    However, it does not matter if a Christian never heard the name Yaweh. If they know God and love Him, when they call to Him in their own language it is precious to Him and He receives it. Also it doesn’t mean that someone who knows the name Yaweh is closer to God than someone who has never heard it. They key in closeness to God is sincerity, love, and obedience, not knowing this or that language.
