Israeli rabbi: Notre Dame fire divine retribution? Church-burning can be ok

Times of Israel reported in Radical rabbi says Notre Dame fire retribution for 13th-century Talmud burning that a prominent extremist rabbi believes the Notre Dame Cathedral fire may have been “divine retribution for the mass-burning of Talmud volumes by French Catholic priests” in 1242.

Rabbi Shlomo Aviner, the rabbi of the illegal Beit El settlement, instructs Jews that they need not feel saddened by the fire that devastated the 12th century cathedral, priceless artifacts, and works of art.

A few extremist Jewish rabbis are out there, just like there are a few extremist Christian leaders… not representative of the vast majority of Jews or Christians.
