while I do not condone the burning of places or worship for any reason, it should be pointed out that NK have been around for as long as the State of Israel a nd they have never been attacked before. The reason for the recent animosity towards these desperate attention seekers is their recent shenanigans in Tehran and other holocaust denial. In their refusal to recognise the secular State of Israel they are joined by very many religious Jews. It is only since they stopped attacking (or condoning attacks on) zionism and started attacks on zionists and Jews that the haredi mainstream has rejected them out of hand. Their position, that the zionist State does not represent all Jews remains correct.
