Jewish court sentences dog to death by stoning

6/17/11

A Jerusalem rabbinical court condemned to death by stoning a dog it suspects is the reincarnation of a secular lawyer who insulted the court’s judges 20 years ago, Ynet website reported on Friday……


According to Ynet, the large dog made its way into the Monetary Affairs Court in the ultra-Orthodox Jewish neighbourhood of Mea Shearim in Jerusalem, frightening judges and plaintiffs.


Despite attempts to drive the dog out of the court, the hound refused to leave the premises.


One of the sitting judges then recalled a curse the court had passed down upon a secular lawyer who had insulted the judges two decades previously.


Their preferred divine retribution was for the lawyer’s spirit to move into the body of a dog, an animal considered impure by traditional Judaism.


Clearly still offended, one of the judges sentenced the animal to death by stoning by local children.

I think End of the World is a bit more appropriate for this. Lawyers ressurecting as Dogs and being stoned to death by Jews has got to fit into someones end time theories somewhere.

Cockroaches in a home with 5 cats is a more appropriate incarnation for them.

One would think that hitting him on the nose with a rolled up legal brief and saying "Bad Lawyer!" would suffice. On the plus side, he'd be really good at chasing ambulances.

Apparently, the story is untrue:


Jerusalem court denies dog condemned to stoning

Reports that a Jewish rabbinical court in Israel condemned a stray dog to death by stoning have been strongly denied.

The source of the report, Israel's Maariv newspaper, apologised for its headline and for any offence caused.

The head of the court, Yehoshua Levin, was quoted by Maariv as saying: "There is no basis for abuse of animals from the side of Jewish Halacha [law].''

In a statement, the court denied that a dog had been condemned.

A dog had entered the court and been removed, it said.

The story was reported in the Israeli and international press, including the BBC News website.
