Israel's Chief Rabbi Yona Metzger has called on defendants going before the bench to "stop sporting a kippa just for show."

The rabbi made the comment in a Rosh Hashana ceremony in Jerusalem on Thursday and attended by past and present police commissioners, as well as Internal Security Minister Avi Dichter. Metzger spoke of the phenomenon in which newly defendants choose to appear for their court dates wearing the traditional Jewish skullcaps for the sake of appearances.

"I cannot judge someone's heart," said Rabbi Metzger. "If someone has committed a crime and truly wished to repent, it is, by all means, the right thing to do; but this new thing we're seeing, where killers are arrested and then they wear a kippa when appearing before the judge, is despicable.

"It is an abuse of religion and a complete disregard of the judges' intelligence," he said.

Rabbi Metzger then proceeded to wish the police forces a happy, less busy new year and thank them for their dedication to their job.

Yeah, save that for the goyim court !

ALL JOKES ASIDE -nd there are PLENTY to be made - what a BRILLIANT idea! I never thought of it before! SERIOUSLY!

Think about it, you win on 2 fronts. First, as long as the judge beleives you're Jewish you will get off scot free or at least with a reduced sentence as one of gods chosen. Second, if they get angry and state you are a "fake jew" you can make the head lines in court by stating that seeing as jew continually get off with light sentences you were merely thinking practically!

Can you imagine the outrage it would cause! Front pages and people would be cleverly tricked into having to THINK about that statement.
