(IsraelNN.com) Disengagement opponents have released a message announcing that approximately twenty persons participated in a Pulsa D’Nura ceremony, last week, calling for the death of Prime Minister Ariel Sharon. The kabalistic prayer service was held in the Ancient Rosh Pinah Cemetery.
The report adds that participants included Rabbi Yosef Dayan from Psagot, and Michal Ben-Chorin, who explained to reporters that they called on the Angel of Death to take Mr. Sharon.
The kabalistic prayer is not a text recited by mainstream Judaism. It gained notoriety prior to the assassination of Prime Minister Yitzhak Rabin, when the prayer was recited a number of times, resulting in widespread condemnation.
Responding to the report, Yesha Council officials released a sharp condemnatory message, deploring the prayer service, emphasizing that it is not an acceptable action even in the ongoing battle against the expulsion plan.
