Rabbi Ammar should re-examine his stance. Does he also believe that the Babylonian Talmud should be thrown into the rubbish bin because it wasn't composed by "Israel" rabbis? Riddiculous. Furthermore, when people talk about seperating "religion" from politics in Israel....think about it: this is nothing BUT politics. It's just another way for these Rabbi/Politicos to influence and controll Jewish lives. In fact, they can't even settle to dictate Israelis' lives; they have to control Diaspora jews lives too!
