I'm sure that's what's being reported.

Israel seeks extradition of rabbi from Canada


Officials in Israel have issued an international arrest warrant for a rabbi who is believed to be in Canada…

Journals seized by authorities investigating the case have suggested that Chen's followers do not call him by name, but instead refer to him as "His Honour the King of the Messiah."

For days, Israel's media have been filled with the gruesome details of the case…

All I know is what's reported; Elan, since that article says it's been widely covered in the Israeli media, perhaps you can look there for more info? Or try searching http://news.google.com/

I'm sorry, but I won't be responding to any more questions about this. I just can't keep writing on this topic. It's making me physically ill. (That is not hyperbole.)
