Messianic Jews in Israel say they want an inquiry into the burning of hundreds of copies of the New Testament by Orthodox Jews in Or Yehuda last week.
The books were given to the town's Ethiopian Jews by the Messianic Jews, who believe in Jesus as a saviour.
Or Yehuda's deputy mayor says he received complaints about the books, and arranged for them to be burnt.
Meanwhile, Orthodox Jews are applauding the destruction of texts they say urge Jews to convert.

If you replaced Jews with Muslims, this story would be receiving mainstream coverage as we speak, Bill O'Reily, Ann Coulter and the like would jump on it like a Lion going in for the kill and use this as evidence Muslims hate all other religions and are backward savages.
But no, Jews or Christians have such a reputation for tolerance and equality that nobody seems to mind when they burn Bibles.
Or lynch Black people.
Or burn Jerusalem.
Or slaughter Muslims.
Or bulldoze Palestinian homes.
Or "accidentally" kill women and kids.
They're history shows that their so much more understanding and moderate than Muslims, this such minor, trivial actions can be forgiven.
But Muslims, they're whackjobs pure and simple, thus when a Muslim takes a dump it makes the front page with the heading: "They sh*t on us all!!"
I love it how everyone ignored this thread...
You should change the title to "Muslims burn New Testament..." Harlequin.
I'd wager you'd get 50 replies within the next 5 hours.

Why have a mass burning though? Why not just throw it in the trash like any unwanted flyers, ads, or books? I throw away those psalm books church gives out... those mission things that I keep getting... ads for the latest coolest trends, coupons I don't use... etc. Why a mass burning?
It doesn't make a difference if it was a bible or not. The burning of any book is a reprehensible act. Especially if it is done by any part of the goverment, it's no different than natzi germany.
