Download PDF for this date

Officials of the Finnish Mission school in Jerusalem asked police today to drop charges against nine yeshiva students who were arrested in the stoning of the school on January 3.

The students were held on charges of going on an anti-missionary rampage, along with 50 others, smashed windows in the Finnish school and in the Zion Christian mission. The Finnish school officials told police that according to the tenets of their Christian sect, authorities should not be asked to act against those harming the sect.
