    West Bank rabbi: Jews can kill Gentiles who threaten Israel

    Just weeks after the arrest of alleged Jewish terrorist, Yaakov Teitel, a West Bank rabbi on Monday released a book giving Jews permission to kill Gentiles who threaten Israel.

    Rabbi Yitzhak Shapiro, who heads the Od Yosef Chai Yeshiva in the Yitzhar settlement, wrote in his book "The King's Torah" that even babies and children can be killed if they pose a threat to the nation.

    Shapiro based the majority of his teachings on passages quoted from the Bible, to which he adds his opinions and beliefs.

    "It is permissable to kill the Righteous among Nations even if they are not responsible for the threatening situation," he wrote, adding: "If we kill a Gentile who has sinned or has violated one of the seven commandments - because we care about the commandments - there is nothing wrong with the murder."

    Several prominent rabbis, including Rabbi Yithak Ginzburg and Rabbi Yaakov Yosef, have recommended the book to their students and followers.

    I know nothing about this Rabbi, but it's hardly news that someone thinks it's ok to kill another because they think God says so. Is it?

    I'm glade that he will be monitored by the Israeli authority now that the Israeli press has exposed him. although im sure he has been monitored before that.

    OCCUPIED JERUSALEM, (PIC)-- Yitzhak Shapira, the fanatic Zionist rabbi, has issued a number of religious edicts in his new book allowing killing of non-Jewish enemies even if they were children and infants.
    Shabira also delineated Jewish laws on how to deal with non-Jews and when it is allowed to kill them.
    His book, “The Torah of the King” grabbed the attention of many fanatic and extremist Jews, especially the rightist groups among others, and many copies of it were sold within a short period, according to the Hebrew Maariv newspaper Monday.

    what a sick creep. such people give me chills, where in hell is his place going to be?

    the Israelis have a home grown radical terrorist to look up to now. they must be proud. i am sure it is one of many cases, maybe his book was too soft on the killing of innocent people and the jews exposed him.

    Can anyone find the text of the book? I'd like to see where in Scripture this "rabbi" thinks it's permitted to kill ANYONE. Cause I've got a commandment that says otherwise...
    Anyway, I'd like to see it, but I don't want to pay for it, cause that'd just encourage him/fund terrorism.
    What a wacko. I can't believe people buy into this! But I gues you're right. There's always one...
