Chief rabbi: Keep out Iran conference participants

Ashkenazi Chief Rabbi Yona Metzger sent a letter to Prime Minister Ehud Olmert and Interior Minister Roni Bar-On on Tuesday requesting that they use all available means to prohibit the Neturei Karta members who took part in the Iranian Holocaust denial conference from entering Israel. The chief rabbi noted that the representatives in question had family in Israel and were likely to come to the country for visits or family celebrations.
