MK Katz: Lior's arrest is motivated by 'hatred of Torah'

MK Ya'acov Katz (National Union) expressed on Tuesday his "shock and disgust" at the arrest warrant of Kiryat Arba Rabbi Dov Lior.
"The people of Israel are embarrassed by its Public Security Minister Yitzhak Aharonovitch and the police leadership whose hatred of Torah makes them unreasonable," Katz said. "They would never arrest the dean of a [university], or a Christian or Muslim priest for endorsing a book."
He added: "This arrest warrant is reminiscent of the darkest regimes in Israel's history."
