Rabbis petition against Israel arms to Mayanmar

Amid a brutal campaign against Muslim-majority Rohingya in Myanmar, Rabbi Dov Peretz Elkins did something he had never done before, signing a petition against the Israeli government to end arms supplies to the Myanmar military.

"Rabbis have a moral obligation to make their voice heard in such moral situations," Elkins, who holds Israeli and American citizenship, told Al Jazeera from Jerusalem.

More than 620,000 Rohingya have fled Myanmar's western Rakhine State in recent months amid a crackdown by the Myanmar military, in a campaign of what the United States and United Nations have called "ethnic cleansing".
