NEW YORK - Three holy scrolls were recovered, seemingly undamaged, from a safe inside the burnt-out synagogue of a fiercely anti-Zionist group that is a source of tension in Monsey, a largely Jewish community north of New York City.

Other holy books were destroyed, said a Neturei Karta leader, who claimed the fire was deliberate because of the group's anti-Israeli views. Members burn the Israeli flag and pray for the end of the Jewish state. A few travelled to Iran to participate in a Holocaust-denial conference. - Sapa-AP
