CBNNews.com – JERUSALEM, Israel – In the latest in a growing number of incidents against Israeli Messianic Jewish believers — Jews who believe that Yeshua (Jesus, in Hebrew) is the Messiah — a group of ultra-Orthodox youth set fire to New Testaments collected from the town’s residents.

The Bible burning, which took place in Or Yehuda, a town of about 28,000 located between Tel Aviv and Ben Gurion Airport, was first reported in the Israeli daily Maariv.

According to the article, Or Yehuda’s Deputy Mayor Uzi Aharon drove through the streets, asking residents over a loudspeaker to turn over New Testaments in their possession to yeshiva (religious seminary) students.

After collecting hundreds of Bibles the next day, the students threw them in a pile next to the neighborhood synagogue and set them on fire.
