Rabbi Metzger: The vandalism of the mosque was despicable. But grafitti can be removed, holy books can be replaced. But human beings made in the Almighty's image are irreplaceable. Yes, condemn the vandalism. But the greater crimes are the killing of Palestinian civilians, the stealing of their water and their land, the blockade of Gaza, the daily indignities inflicted on innocent Palestinian civilians whose only crime is to live in occupied territory. The vandals themselves only symptons, not the problem. The more serious criminals are the politicians and rabbis who condone and incite vandalism, violence and terror against your Arab neighbors. Rabbi Metzger, bring your message of peace and tolerance to your fellow Jews. Tell them not all Arabs are terrorists and that "rabbis" who sanctify Baruch Goldstein and Yigal Amir or who teach that murdering Palestinian children is Torah are not Jews and should be shunned.
