Interesting: an American Rabbi, Dean of CFR UNIVERSITY Y.U. ( ever since Richard Joel joined) leaving precipitously because of a remark DAMAGING TO THE ISRAELI GOVERNMENT AND THE CFR: was he RECALLED by his handlers, or THREATENED here?

Rabbi Schachter Leaves Suddenly Under Cloud of Doubt

2 Adar Bet 5768, 09 March 08 12:28

( Rabbi Hershel Schachter, Dean of Yeshiva University, left Israel suddenly Saturday night in the wake of an uproar over remarks he made last week regarding service in the IDF under a government willing to divide Jerusalem. The comments were broadcast on YouTube.  Rabbi Schachter had said he would advise soldiers to leave the IDF rather than serve in an army that would "give away Jerusalem." He later apologized for the remarks, saying the statements "were uttered spontaneously, off the cuff and were not meant seriously."

According to a source who requested anonymity, the Rabbi was scheduled for a speaking engagement at a Beit Shemesh yeshiva Sunday, but cancelled hastily late Saturday night, saying he had to leave the country.
