Supreme Court rejects request to try Safed's chief rabbi

The Supreme Court rejected the petition submitted by the Israel Religious Action Center against Attorney General Menachem Mazuz, demanding that Safed Chief Rabbi Shmuel Eliyahu be put on trial for making anti-Arab statements.


The Supreme Court justices ruled that the court tends not to intervene in the attorney general's decisions on such matters, especially after an arrangement was reached with the State Prosecutor's Office, which included an official apology on the part of the rabbi. (Aviad Glickman)
