Jewish lunacy

Lest anyone think that it's only Christians (and maybe Muslims) who can be so high on religion it makes them stop thinking, check out this article about cremation in Isreal. Orthodox Jews are so offended by the notion of cremation because it conflicts with the Torah that they burned the building down when it's location was made public.


More than that, they are now trying to ban crematoria in Israel.

The article is very revealing of the problem secular Jews face in Israel, because it also highlights other problems faced when confronting the Orthodox in "their" country.
