Kill Enemy Children: Jewish Edict
By Khalid Amayreh

Hundreds of children were killed in Israel’s war on Gaza earlier this year.

OCCUPIED JERUSALEM – A Jewish rabbi has issued a book giving Jews permission to murder non-Jews, including babies and children, who may pose an actual or potential threat to Jews or Israel. “It is permissible to kill the Righteous among non-Jews even if they are not responsible for the threatening situation,” Rabbi Yitzhak Shapiro, who heads the Od Yosef Chai Yeshiva in the Yitzhar settlement in the occupied West Bank, wrote in his book “The King’s Torah.”

He argues that goyem (a derogatory epithet for non-Jews) may be killed if they threaten Israel.

“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.”

Shapiro, who heads a small Talmudic school at the settlement of Yitzhar near Nablus, claims his edict “is fully justified by the Torah and the Talmud.”

The anti-goyem edict seems to come in response to the arrest by Israeli police of a Jewish terrorist who has confessed to having murdered two Palestinian shepherds in the West Bank.

The terrorist, an American-born immigrant named Yaakov Teitel, also confessed to have tried to assassinate leftist Jewish figures.

Police considered the arrest an important achievement in combating Jewish terrorism, which experts contend thrives on religious edicts issued by rabbis affiliated with the religious-Zionist camp.

Nearly 16 years ago, a Jewish terrorist named Yigal Amir assassinated then Israeli Premier Yitzhak Rabin.

Moreover, numerous innocent Palestinians have also been murdered in cold blood by Jewish terrorists.

In 1994, Baruch Goldstein, a notorious Jewish terrorist, murdered 29 Muslim worshipers inside Al-Ibrahimi Mosque in the West Bank town of al-Khalil.

Non-Humans

The controversial edict is backed by numerous rabbis affiliated with the so-called national-religious camp as well as the Talmudic seminary in West Jerusalem, known as Merkaz Ha’rav.

Among the rabbis who have publicly supported the edict are Yitzhak Ginsburg and Ya’akov Yosef.

Ginsburg had written a leaflet glorifying murderer Goldstein and called him a “saintly figure.”

Shapiro’s views on how Palestinians and non-Jews in general ought to be treated according to Jewish religious law (halacha) are widely looked at as representing the mainstream not the exception in Israel.

During the Israeli onslaught against Gaza earlier this year, Mordecahi Elyahu, one of the leading rabbinic figures in Israel, urged the army not to refrain from killing enemy children in order to save the lives of Israeli soldiers.

He had even petitioned the Israeli government to carry out a series of carpet bombing of Palestinian population centers in Gaza.

“If they don’t stop after we kill 100, then we must kill a thousand. And if they do not stop after we kill a thousand, then we must kill 10,000. If they still don’t stop, we must kill 100,000, even a million. Whatever it takes to stop them.”

According to Israel Shahak, author of “Jewish History, Jewish Religion: the Weight of Three Thousand years,” the term “human beings” in Jewish law refers solely to Jews.

Many Jewish orthodox rabbis, especially within the national-religious sector, view international conventions incriminating the deliberate killing of civilians and destruction of civilian homes and property as representing “Christian morals” not binding on Jews.

In 2006, the Rabbinic Council of Jewish Settlements in the West Bank urged the army “to ignore Christian morals and exterminate the enemy in the north (Lebanon) and the south (Gaza Strip).

Such manifestly racist and hateful edicts don’t raise many eyebrows in Israel, neither among the intelligentsia nor in the society at large.

    It’s difficult not to conclude that peace in the Middle East situation could be achieved by silencing fundamentalist rabbis and mullahs instead of civilians, since extremists of both sides express such complete disdain for life itself.

    Don’t you love the way religious fanatics of all colours justify their consuming hate and violence? Ironically, they often talk about love at the same time.

    Hate, violence and love cannot coexist! One will prevail. Guess which one!

    Zon Moy, #2, has given the reader the idea that as God produces such disciples – and legions of their devoted followers of the mass murder the disciples sanction, then it is everyone’s responsibility to cast God into the depths of hell and not through the gates of heaven from whence he supposedly emerged, and that any person who believes in any kind of god should be regarded as having a thought disorder but for which there really is no remedy.

    It took courage on the part of Khalid Amayreh to write this and for you, Steve, to publish it.

    Take care Steve, i wouldn’t put it past someone quite mad to try to murder you as well as Khalid Amayreh. I hope he sees this.

    Only a goddamned SUB-HUMAN would make such a statement.

    The human conscience says it must therefore be okay for bad things to happen to hypocritical murderers like Rabbi Shapiro. As somebody else said here, we are talking about sub-human fundamentalists here. Any serious human being can comprehend the notion of God’s plan being for our evolution to a higher state. Rabbi Shapiro seems to have so little respect for his own people that he would have them and us go back to our prehistoric caves and kill each other for profit.
    There are special regions of Hell reserved for such wickedness, and we all know it, however disillusioned we might be about institutionalized religion.
