Newspeak comes to Israel

Time for a Vocabulary Quiz. Which of the following acts is illegal?

A: The existence of a crematorium for the consensual (and paid-for) job of helping deceased Israelis fulfill their last wish of how they wish to rejoin the earth after death.

B: The burning of said crematorium to the ground by a crazed mob.

Let's ask Yehuda Meshi-Zahav, ZAKA founder, Neturei Karta asskicker, and former Shabbes-warrior:

Yehuda Meshi Zahav told Israeli Army Radio he thought an arson attack on the crematorium would be justified.

"It was an illegal activity, a desecration of the dead and I applaud the destruction of this building, which was destined to disappear in flames."

You know, it's nice that every once in a while in the jaded blogger world, I can still be surprised. Thanks, Yehuda.
