    To this day I relive the horrors of Krystallnacht, when I was still able to say that I am proud to be a Jew. Unfortunately the criminal settlers, burning a mosque and Korans, is a painful reminder. Frankly, as long as the settlers dirty what was once a hopeful State of Israel, they should be tossed out of the country. Besides, with all the damage they do on Shabbatot, all of it sinful, with their kippot, stremels and screaming "Shabbes" Shabbes", they have dirtied our religion. To go as far as burning books, my pride has faded, and every reprisal that happens was invited by them. At the moment, I am NOT proud to be a Jew, and can only hope that this will change again. Rabbi Metzger was right. Imagine how those Rabbis who are righteous, feel when they see others joining the unwashed and/or Shabbat clad, burning the Shabbat along with the books. Maybe Bibi should climb off the fence, and show his so called power, by punishing them, as well as the Arabs who act like the settlers
