President Shimon Peres on Wednesday asked Chief Sephardi Rabbi Shlomo Amar to use his influence "to preserve respect for the Torah on one hand and respect for the rule of law and the unity of the nation on the other hand."

The president's comments came on the background of recent protests against the arrest of rabbis who endorsed a the book Torat Hamelech, which authorities claim incites violence against non-Jews.

Amar stated in a meeting between the two leaders at Beit Hanassi that he was requesting that the public "stay away from extremism."
