    It was all a mistake, says spokesman for the Shuvu Banim Breslov sect at their yeshiva which is a stone’s throw from the Kotel in Jerusalem. “Yossi” - members only go by their first names - told Jewish Report online that “it was never once written on the website anything on the matter in the name of Rabbi Berland,” he said. Yossi reiterated that Rav Berland never even knew of the content of his blog or website and that accusing him of making “a death threat to Goldstein is an outright lie and it is a blood libel.” The content on the blog has been changed, he says.

Channel 10 said that a gang member had agreed to turn state witness in Israel on the alleged charges of “assassinations, illegal possession of weapons, racketeering, arson and robbery”.
