Le rabbin Shapira, auteur d'un livre qui approuve le meurtre des non-juifs, est soutenu par une douzaine de rabbins israéliens importants

Des douzaines de rabbins signent une déclaration condamnant l'arrestation du rabbin Yitzhak Shapira, l'auteur principal du livre "La Torah des Rois" (King's Torah).

Ces rabbins attestent que Shapira a énoncé une vérité de la loi juive ("Halakha"), une vérité que plusieurs tiennent cependant à maintenir sous le boisseau. ("Tu ne tueras point" serait donc un commandement qui ne s'applique qu'entre juifs!)

La franchise du rabbin Shapira lui vaudra-t-elle la prison?

Le rabbin d’Yitzhar, entre les mains de la police
Par YAAKOV LAPPIN
La police a arrêté le rabbin d’Yitzhar, Yossef Elitzur-Hershkowitz, dans la nuit de mercredi. Elle le soupçonne d’incitation à la haine raciale et de possession de textes racistes.
Cette arrestation s’inscrit dans une enquête plus large sur le livre Torat Hamelech (La Torah du roi), co-écrit par Elitzur-Hershkowitz et le rabbin Itzhak Shapira de l’implantation d’Yitzhar, en Judée-Samarie. Le livre traite des règles de guerre et notamment des conditions dans lesquelles des non-Juifs peuvent être tués sans enfreindre les lois religieuses.
Entre liberté de religion et incitation
Depuis sa publication en 2009, l’ouvrage suscite la controverse. La police a interrogé Shapira le mois dernier. Elle a également confisqué des copies du texte, dans la yeshiva d’Yitzhar.

Le rabbin Dov LIOR

Les rabbins Dov Lior de Kiryat Arba et Yaacov Yossef, fils du leader spirituel du parti Shas, Ovadia Yossef, soutiennent l’ouvrage et ses auteurs. Ils ont toutefois refusé de répondre aux questions de la police.
Pour le représentant du ministère public, Shaï Nitzan, s’en est trop : "Le fait d’être rabbin en Israël ne donne pas l’immunité. Ils tombent aussi sous le coup de la loi", a-t-il expliqué à la radio de l’armée. "La liberté de religion ne permet pas de faire n’importe quoi. Si quelqu’un incite à la haine raciale, une enquête doit être ouverte contre lui. Il y a des limites à ne pas dépasser."
Des centaines de rabbins d’extrême-droite ont pris part, mercredi, à un séminaire "en l’honneur de la Torah et de son indépendance". Sans être d’accord avec tout ce qui est écrit dans l’ouvrage controversé, ils demandent à l’Etat de "ne pas se mêler des affaires des religieux". Des figures tutélaires, comme le rabbin de Ramat Gan, Yaacov Ariel, et le rabbin Haïm Druckman étaient également présents lors de l’événement.
NDLR - Les communiqués diffusés dans certaines synagogues d’Israël, démentent les implications des rabbins Dov Lior et Yaakov Yossef, et indiquent même que les préfaces publiées en leur nom dans ce livre seraient des faux. Un grand nombre de rabbins du mouvement sioniste pour la plus part ont signé des motions de soutien aux rabbins Dov Lior et Yaakov Yossef, qui sont des sommités de la Torah. D’autre part la question posée serait la suivante :
Est-ce qu’un rabbin qui enseignerait les lois de la guerre en se basant sur les textes du corpus rabbinique serait en infraction avec la loi ?
Un grand nombre de rabbins affirment que non, et que ce serait là une ingérence de la politique dans le rôle du rabbin dont la mission est la transmission du savoir rabbinique.
pour exemple nous soumettons un verset qui peu faire débat : nombre chapitre 33 verset 55.

Soirée de solidarité à l’Hotel Rmamada de Jérusalem, avec le rav Lior et Yaakov Yossef.

Près de deux cents rabbins, du courant sioniste-religieux, se sont réunis jeudi soir à l’hôtel Ramada de Jérusalem pour exprimer leur soutien à leurs confrères, menacés d’être soumis à une enquête policière pour ce qu’on pourrait appeler un « délit d’opinions ».
Des poursuites ont en effet été engagées contre certains d’entre eux en raison du soutien qu’ils auraient apporté à un livre, Torat Hamelekh, dans lequel il serait écrit notamment qu’il est permis de tuer des non-juifs mettant en danger la paix d’Israël. Les rabbins concernés ont refusé de répondre à la convocation de la police, arguant du fait qu’il s’agissait d’une enquête politique et que la Torah ne pouvait en aucun cas faire l’objet d’investigations ».
Lors de cette soirée de solidarité, le Rav de Kiriat Arba Dov Lior, qui est l’une des personnes impliquées dans cette affaire, a notamment déclaré « qu’il n’était pas question de laisser quelques fonctionnaires donner des directives et décréter ce qui est permis et ce qui est interdit ».
Le Rav Lior a encore souligné que « c’était le rôle des rabbins de rappeler les règles de la loi juive sans craindre les répercussions de leurs propos ». A ce stade, on ne sait pas encore si la police entamera une procédure contre les rabbins ou si elle renoncera à son enquête. Rappelons que l’auteur du livre, le Rav Itsik Shapira, de la localité de Itshar, a été arrêté à son domicile et soumis à un interrogatoire. Après lui, le Rav Itshak Ginsbourg, directeur de la Yeshiva Od Yossef Haï, a également dû répondre aux questions des enquêteurs.

[AFP] Dans son livre intitulé La Torah du roi, le rabbin israélien justifie le meurtre de non-juifs pour "freiner leurs inclinations malignes".

Un rabbin colon auteur d'un livre justifiant le meurtre, dans certaines circonstances, de goys (non-juifs), y compris des enfants, a été arrêté jeudi 19 août par la police israélienne, a annoncé la radio militaire.

Ce rabbin, Yossef Elitzur, résidant dans la colonie d'Yitzhar dans le nord de la Cisjordanie et co-auteur d'un ouvrage intitulé La Torah du roi, est soupçonné d'incitation à la haine raciale et à la violence.

Dans cet ouvrage publié au début de l'année, les rabbins Elitzur et Yitzhak Shapira affirment que les non-juifs ne sont pas, "par nature, sujets à la compassion" et que les attaquer "peut freiner leurs inclinations malignes", selon des extraits publiés par le quotidien Haaretz.

Les deux auteurs estiment également qu'il peut être licite de tuer les bébés et les enfants des "ennemis d'Israël car il est clair qu'ils nous porteront préjudice lorsqu'ils auront grandi".

"Partout où l'influence de goys constitue une menace pour la vie d'Israël, il est permis de les tuer, même s'il s'agit des Justes parmi les nations", soulignent ces rabbins en faisant allusion à ceux qui ont sauvé des juifs durant la Deuxième Guerre mondiale.

L'ouvrage a été publié avec l'imprimatur de deux autres rabbins plus connus, Dov Lior et Yaakov Yossef, fils du rabbin Ovadia Yossef, fondateur et chef spirituel du Shass, un parti ultra-orthodoxe représenté au gouvernement. Ces deux rabbins ont refusé de répondre à une convocation de la police qui voulait leur demander des explications.

Mercredi soir, plusieurs dizaines de rabbins, d'éducateurs et d'activistes d'extrême droite se sont réunis à Jérusalem pour les soutenir dans leur refus de voir "l'Etat se mêler de la Torah".

FLASHBACK:




Excerpt from Max Blumenthal's new book Goliath : Life and Loathing in Greater Israel
At the conclusion of prayers, eight major state-funded rabbis ambled up to the platform above the crowd, most representing an official yeshiva from a settlement or major Israeli city. With their long, gray beards, black suits, black fedoras, and wizened appearances, they looked as though they had been lifted from the imagination of some deranged anti-Semite. And here they were to defend a book that openly justified the mass slaughter of gentile babies, though to be sure, not all were willing to say that they agreed with its contents. The only point the rabbis agreed on, at least openly, was that the state should never scrutinize or punish the speech of religious authorities. With their penchant for firebreathing tirades against Arabs, homosexuals, and other evildoers, these rabbis knew they were next in line if Shapira and Elitzur were officially prosecuted.
Yaakov Yosef was escorted into the gathering by Baruch Marzel, a notoriously violent leader of the Jewish terrorist group, Kach. Up at the podium, Yosef hailed Marzel as a “gever,” or a great man of honor. Yosef was the son of Ovadiah Yosef, the spiritual guide of the Shas Party and former Chief Sephardic Rabbi of Israel. Despite Ovadiah Yosef’s penchant for outrageous ravings (“Goyim were born only to serve. Without that, they have no place in the world,” he proclaimed in a weekly sermon), he opposed the publication of Torat Ha’Melech, calling it “racist” and dangerous to Israel’s international image. But since joining the extremist, cultic Jewish sect of Chabad, Yaakov had taken on a decidely more radical posture than his father. (Elitzur was a Chabad rabbi.)
In his speech, Yosef attempted to couch Torat Ha’Melech within the mainstream tradition of the Torah. Quoting from Psalms Chapter 79 in order to demonstrate the book’s supposed consistency with established Halakhic teachings, Yosef declared, “Pour out your wrath on the nations that do not acknowledge you, on the kingdoms that do not call on your name; for they have devoured Jacob and destroyed his homeland.” He then reminded his audience of the Passover tale. “We asked the Jewish people, ‘You don’t want to read from the Hagadah at the Passover table [citing the slaughter of non-Jews]? Does anyone want to change the Bible or the statements of the Torah?” Shapira and Elitzur’s only crime, Yosef claimed, was remaining faithful to the oral and written statements contained in the Torah.
Next, Rabbi Haim Druckman, rose to speak. A former member of Knesset and winner of the 2012 Israel Prize for education, Druckman was a figurehead of Jewish extremism in Israel. In 1980, after a group of settlers embarked on a semi-successful terror plot to maim the leading Palestinian mayors of the West Bank (they crippled the mayors of Nablus and Ramallah), Druckman celebrated: “Thus may all of Israel’s enemies perish!” Hunched over the podium, the hoarse-throated Druckman was careful to avoid endorsing the contents of Torat Ha’Melech, volunteering only that he “hope[d] what happened here will end soon and that we will never have to make such conferences again.”
A more strident statement of support came from Rabbi Yehoshua Shapira, head of the state-sponsored yeshiva in the Tel Aviv suburb of Ramat Gan. Yehoshua Shapira bellowed, “The obligation to sacrifice your life is above all others when fighting those who wish to destroy the authority of the Torah. It is not only true against non-Jews who are trying to destroy it but against Jewish people from any side.”
Outside the conference hall, where the Kahanist Knesset member Michael Ben-Ari milled around with Baruch Marzel and Itamar Ben-Gvir, another aide he pulled from the ranks of Kach, Yossi and I chatted with a 22-year-old settler who spoke to us in an American accent. We demanded to know if he was willing to defend the provisions in Torat Ha’Melech justifying the murder of innocent children. Without hesitation or any initial shame, the young man, who refused to give his name, told us, “There is such a concept in Jewish law as an enemy population, and under very, very specific circumstances, according to various rabbinic opinions, it would be seemingly permissible to kill, uh, uh....” For a moment, he trailed off, and his eyes darted around the room. But the settler managed to collect himself and complete his statement. “To kill children,” he muttered uncomfortably.
The genocidal philosophy expressed in Torat Ha’Melech emerged from the fevered atmosphere of a settlement called Yitzhar located in the northern West Bank near the Palestinian city of Nablus. There, Shapira helps lead the settlement’s Od Yosef Chai yeshiva, holding sway over a small army of fanatics eager to terrorize the Palestinians tending to their crops and livestock in the valleys below them. Shapira was raised in an infl uential religious nationalist family. Like Yaakov Yosef, he took a radical turn after joining the Chabad sect under the tutelage of Rabbi Yitzchok Ginsburgh, the director of Yitzhar’s Od Yosef Chai yeshiva who defended seven of his students who murdered an innocent Palestinian girl by asserting the superiority of Jewish blood. In 1994, when the Jewish fanatic Baruch Goldstein massacred 29 Palestinian worshippers at the Cave of the Patriarchs in Hebron, Ginsburgh lionized Goldstein in a lengthy article titled “Baruch, Hagever,” or “Baruch, the Great Man.” Ginsburgh cast Goldstein’s murder spree as an act consistent with core Halakhic teachings, from the importance of righteous revenge to the necessity of the “eradication of the seed of Amalek.”
Under the direction of Ginsburgh and Shapira, Od Yosef Chai has raked in nearly $50,000 from the Israeli Ministry of Social Affairs since 2007. The Israeli Ministry of Education has supplemented the government’s support by pumping over $250,000 into the yeshiva’s coffers between 2006 and 2007. Od Yosef Chai has also benefited handsomely from donations from a tax-exempt American non-profit called the Central Fund of Israel. Located inside the Marc Brothers Textiles store in Midtown Manhattan, the Central Fund transferred at least $30,000 to Od Yosef Chai between 2007 and 2008. (Itamar Marcus, the brother of Central Fund founder Kenneth, is the director of Palestine Media Watch, a pro-Israel organization ironically dedicated to exposing Palestinian incitement). In April 2013, the Israeli government finally announced it would cease funding Od Yosef Chai, citing the yeshiva as a threat to public safety.
Though he did not specify the identity of the non-Jewish “enemy” in the pages of his book, Rabbi Shapira’s longstanding connection to terrorist attacks against Palestinian civilians exposes the true identity of his targets. In 2006, another rabbi in Shapira’s yeshiva, Yossi Peli, was briefly held by Israeli police for urging his supporters to murder all Palestinian males over the age of 13. Two years later, Shapira was questioned by Shin Bet under suspicion that he helped orchestrate a homemade rocket attack against a Palestinian village near Nablus. Though he was released, Shapira’s name arose in connection with another act of terror, when in January 2010 the Israeli police raided his settlement seeking the vandals who set fire to a nearby mosque. After arresting 10 settlers, the Shin Bet held five of Shapira’s confederates under suspicion of arson. None ever saw the inside of a prison cell.
Asked if the students at the Oded Yosef Chai yeshiva were taking the law into their own hands in attacking Palestinians, one of Shapira’s colleagues, Rabbi David Dudkevitch, replied, “The issue is not taking the law into our hands, but rather taking the entire State into our hands.”
Jewish settler violence has been a fact of life in the occupied West Bank since the 1970s. Since 2007, however, settler violence has spiked dramatically. A 2008 article in Ha’aretz attributed the rise in attacks to the 2005 withdrawal of settlers from the Gaza Strip, after which West Bank settlers vowed to answer each state action against them by with a “price tag” assault on Palestinians, thus establishing a deterrent “balance of terror.”
But a detailed analysis of documented settler attacks that occurred during the past decade by the Washington-based research institute, the Palestine Center revealed the violence as structural, not reactive. Staged without pretext and most frequently in West Bank areas under Israeli security control, the settlers acted without restraint. The report identified northern settlements such as Yitzhar as hotbeds of violent activity, with shooting attacks and arson on the rise. According to Yesh Din, an Israeli human rights group, the Israeli police closed 91 percent of investigations into settler attacks without indicting anyone, and usually failed to locate the suspects.
According to a March 2011 Ynet-Gesher poll of 504 Israeli adults, 48 percent of Israelis supported settler violence in retaliation to Palestinian or Israeli government actions, with only 33 percent stating their belief that settler violence was “never justified.” While a vast majority of Orthodox and religious nationalist respondents expressed strong support for settler attacks, 36 percent of secular Israelis did as well—a remarkably high number for a population that lives primarily inside the Green Line.
While Ginsburgh and Shapira provided the halakhic seal of approval for settler rampages in the north of the West Bank, in the south, their comrade, Dov Lior, the chief rabbi of Hebron, has cheered on the murder of anyone, Jew or non-Jew, who appeared to interfere with the redemptive cause of Greater Israel. At the funeral for Baruch Goldstein, Lior extolled the mass killer as “a righteous man” who was “holier than all the martyrs of the Holocaust.” Thanks in part to Lior’s efforts, a shrine to Goldstein stands inside the Jewish settlement of Kiryat Arba, where Lior presides over the yeshiva. At the same time, Lior pronounced Prime Minister Yitzhak Rabin a moser (a Jew who snitches to the goyim) and a rodef (a traitor worthy of elimination), helping establish the religious justification for Yigal Amir, one of Lior’s admirers, to assassinate him.
Lior’s penchant for overheated, fascistic tirades has not diminished with age. He has warned Jewish women not to allow in vitro fertilization with the sperm of non-Jews, claiming that “gentile sperm leads to barbaric offspring,” described Arabs as “evil camel riders” and said captive Palestinian militants could be used as subjects for live human experiments. The short, gray-bearded rabbi has even held forth on the evils of “boogie woogie,” declaring that rock and roll “expresses people’s animalistic and lower urges.” He added, “Something that belongs to the rhythms of kushim [Negroes] does not belong in our world.”
Thanks to the growing corps of religious nationalist youth signing up for army service after studying in hesder yeshivas, or institutions of religious learning that train young men for the military, Lior has secured considerable influence inside the military. In 2008, when the chief rabbi of the Israeli army, Brigadier General Avichai Ronski, brought a group of military intelligence officers to Hebron for a special tour, he concluded the day with a private meeting with Lior, who was allowed to regale the officers with his views on modern warfare, which includes vehement support for the collective punishment of Palestinians. Ronski, for his part, has overseen the distribution of extremist tracts to soldiers during Operation Cast Lead, including “Baruch, Hagever,” and a pamphlet stating, “When you show mercy to a cruel enemy, you are being cruel to pure and honest soldiers.”
In October 2009, a group of soldiers from the army’s notoriously abusive Shimshon Battalion upheld a protest banner vowing to refuse orders to evacuate settlements during a swearing-in ceremony at the Western Wall—“Shimshon does not expel.” When the army punished the two soldiers who organized the display of disloyalty by ejecting them from the unit, rabbis Ginsburgh and Lior promptly planned a religious revival in Jerusalem in their honor. A source told the Jerusalem Post that the ceremony would include the mass distribution of the newly published Torat Ha’Melech. Weeks after the incident, two more major Israeli army brigades, Nahson and Kfir, decorated their training bases with banners announcing their refusal to evacuate settlements.
Less than two years later, Matanya Ofan, the cofounder of a Jewish extremist media outlet based in Yitzhar, appeared in a viral online video in full army uniform, cradling an army-issued M-16 in one hand and a copy of Torat Ha’Melech in the other. The book had come to represent the unofficial code of the religious nationalist soldier. Staring into the camera, Ofan declared, “When I come at the border, with God’s grace, I will not listen to the nonsense that the commanders will tell me, and if I see an enemy coming towards the border I will do anything to stop him from passing and I will try and harm him—because this is how we can save the lives of the Jews. Only this way no Sudani or Syrian will get to Tel Aviv.” A caption at the end of the video read, “Jews, let’s win.”
By this time, the ranks of the army were overrun by religious nationalists, with more than a third of infantry officers expressing a right-wing religious point of view—a 30 percent jump since 1990. A 2010 study showed that 13 percent of company commanders lived in West Bank settlements. The army’s second-in-command, Deputy Chief of Staff Yair Naveh, was the first religious officer appointed to a position on the General Staff. He was also the officer implicated in the Anat Kamm scandal for ordering the assassination of Palestinian militants in flagrant violation of a Supreme Court ruling.
Another prominent religious Zionist was Yaakov Amidror, the former director of the analysis wing of the army’s military intelligence and commander of its officer academies. A settler with a puffy white beard, Amidror was appointed by Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu to serve as the director of his National Security Council. Besides advocating the reoccupation of the Gaza Strip, Amidror stirred controversy by calling for summary executions of Israeli soldiers who refused to advance in battle, and for using disproportionate force against the enemy’s civilian population.
“What should be said is, kill more of the bastards on the other side, so that we’ll win. Period,” he bellowed during a panel discussion on “National Values in the Israel Defense Forces.”
While Amidror’s views appeared to dovetail with some of those of the authors of Torat Ha’Melech, he did not dare defend them. This was a job for rabbis Lior and Yaakov Yosef, who became the most prominent apologists, if not the most enthusiastic boosters, of Torat Ha’Melech. In early 2011, with the controversy over the book still raging across Israel, Yosef and Lior provided the supreme rabbinical stamp of approval: a haskama, the kind of endorsement provided at the preface of Judaic works by scholars testifying to their halakhic value and the veracity of their contents.
“I was gladdened, seeing this wonderful creation,” Lior said of the book. That February, the minister of Internal Security issued an arrest warrant for Lior after he refused to come in for questioning on suspicion of incitement to racism, a crime in Israel that is seldom punished, but which carries a penalty of as much as five years in prison. Lior rejected the state’s order on the grounds that he had no obligation to abide by its rules; the Torah itself was being put on trial, he claimed.
Thus the self-proclaimed voice of Judaism in its purest form placed himself above the law.
Meanwhile, the arrest order provoked calls for total resistance from right-wing members of Knesset like Yaakov Katz, who said the government was behaving like the “dark regimes” that persecuted Jews throughout history, casting the attorney general in the role of Nazis and Pharoahs. Twenty-four members of Netanyahu’s coalition, including David Rotem, the chair of the Knesset’s Constitution, Law and Justice Committee, joined Katz in denouncing Lior’s arrest. Both chief rabbis of Israel, Yona Metzger and Shlomo Amar, issued a joint statement denouncing the arrest of a man they called “one of Israel’s greatest rabbis.”
The religious right’s ire exploded at a boisterous protest outside the Supreme Court in July 2011, with hundreds of young settlers breaching a wall outside the courthouse and attempting to storm the building. That same month, when two right-wing activists were caught breaking into his home, Shai Nitzan, the deputy state prosecutor, was forced to travel with a special security detail.
In May 2012, the government buckled under unrelenting pressure—the right-wing caved to the far-right—with Attorney General Yehuda Weinstein ruling that he had insufficient evidence to conclude that Torat Ha’Melech incited racism, mainly because the book was written in a “general manner.” Lior walked free along with the book’s authors, Shapira and Elitzur, consolidating their political dominance while ensuring that the tract they produced would continue circulating freely within the ranks of the army. Astonished by the state’s decision, Sefi Rachlevsky, a liberal columnist for Ha’aretz, pronounced Lior “the ruler of Israel.”
Having successfully exerted its influence on the military and the justice system, the religious right set out into mixed cities across Israel to promote segregation and punish miscegenation in a campaign that spread block by block, street by street.

[American Free Press] The King’s Torah: Kill All Who Endanger a Chosen One

RABBI YITZHAK SHAPIRA, who is a “spiritual leader” for extremist Jews, is making headlines around the world for his new book, The King’s Torah, which sanctions killing non-Jews, even children and babies, in any situation in which “a non-Jew’s presence endangers Jewish lives.” This is acceptable, says Shapira, even if “the gentile” is “not at all guilty for the situation that has been created.” According to journalist Jonathon Cook, Shlomo Aviner, another of the settlement movement’s spiritual leaders, is defending the book’s points as a “legitimate stance . . . that should be taught in Jewish seminaries.” [American Free Press]


In the 230-page book, 'The King’s Torah', Rabbi Yitzhak Shapira and his co-author, Rabbi Yosef Elitzur argue that Jewish law permits the killing of non-Jews in a wide variety of circumstances. The terms 'gentiles' and 'non-Jews' in the book are widely understood as references to Palestinians, notes Jonathan Cook.

THE KING'S TORAH, ISRAELI "BEST SELLER" JUSTIFIES TERROR
LEGAL JUSTIFICATION FOR ATTACKS ON GENTILES
Conservative interpretations of Jewish law, currently being used to justify resettlement of Palestinians and even total removal of all non-Jews from greater Palestine and adjacent areas have long been used to justify acts such as the attack on the USS Liberty, bombings of US facilities in Egypt and, less openly, “false flag” terror attacks attributed to Muslims but performed by Israeli security forces. Rabbi Yitzhak Shapira and Rabbi Yosef Elitzur, seen as the ethical conscience behind the Netanyahu government have taken the following position as reported by Jonathan Cook:
“In the 230-page book, Shapira and his co-author, Rabbi Yosef Elitzur (The King’s Torah,currently Israel’s best selling book) argue that Jewish law permits the killing of non-Jews in a
wide variety of circumstances. They write that Jews have the right to kill Gentiles in any situation in which “a non-Jew’s presence endangers Jewish lives” even if the Gentile is “not at all guilty for the situation that has been created”.
The book sanctions the killing of non-Jewish children and babies: “There is justification for killing babies if it is clear that they will grow up to harm us, and in such a situation they may be harmed deliberately, and not only during combat with adults.”
The rabbis suggest that harming the children of non-Jewish leaders is justified if it is likely to bring pressure to bear on them to change policy. The authors also advocate committing “cruel deeds to create the proper balance of terror” and treating all members of an “enemy nation” as targets for retaliation, even if they are not directly participating in hostile activities.” (false flag terrorism)

Rabbis refuse questioning over war book
by YAAKOV LAPPIN 08/10/2010 02:02

"Our holy Torah will not be subject to interrogation!"
Two prominent rabbis from the national-religious camp refused police requests on Monday that they undergo questioning for their endorsements of a controversial book authored by Rabbi Yitzhak Shapira of the West Bank settlement of Yitzhar.
The book, Torat Hamalech (The King’s Torah), discusses the rules of war and states that in certain situations, non-Jews can be killed. The book has attracted a firestorm of controversy since being published in 2009, and police questioned Shapira over the text last month while raiding his yeshiva, Od Yosef Chai, in Yitzhar in order to confiscate copies.
Rabbi Dov Lior of Kiryat Arba and Rabbi Yaakov Yosef, son of Shas spiritual leader Rabbi Ovadia Yosef, endorsed the book and were summoned by the police’s National Serious and International Crimes (NSCIC) Unit for questioning at its Lod Headquarters.
But in a joint statement issued on Monday, the rabbis said they would not show up for questioning.
‘Our holy Torah will not be subject to interrogation!” the statement read. “The attempt to prevent the rabbis of Israel from expressing their opinion, the opinion of the Torah, through intimidation and threats is a most severe act and will not succeed. Authorities that act this way join the authorities of evil that have banned the study of Torah and lifted up their hand against the Torah of Israel.”
The rabbis defended the book, describing it as “the real instruction guide on the rules of warfare according to our holy Torah.”
Responding to the statement, a police spokesman told The Jerusalem Post on Monday evening that the authorities would “not discuss an ongoing investigation.”
Tovah Lazaroff contributed to this report.



(Flashback 2009) Cisjordanie : un rabbin déclare que les Juifs peuvent tuer les enfants et bébés qui « menacent » Israël
Un rabbin de Cisjordanie a publié il y a deux semaines un livre dans lequel il autorise les Juifs à tuer les « Gentils » qui « menacent » Israël.
Rabbi Yitzhak Shapiro, qui dirige une yeshiva (centre d'étude talmudique), précise dans son ouvrage La Torah du roi, que même les bébés et les enfants peuvent être tués s'ils représentent une menace pour la nation...
« Il est permis de tuer les Justes parmi les Nations, même si ils ne sont pas responsables de la situation menaçante », écrit-il aussi, ajoutant : « Si nous tuons un païen qui a péché ou a violé l'un des sept commandements - parce que nous nous soucions des commandements - il n'y a rien de mal à l'assassiner ».
Plusieurs rabbins éminents, dont le rabbin Yithak Ginzburg et le rabbin Yaakov Yosef, ont recommandé le livre à leurs élèves et disciples.Il faut dire que lorsque l'on connait le Talmud, ces thèses ne sont guère étonnantes...

West Bank rabbi: Jews can kill Gentiles who threaten Israel
Book by Rabbi Yitzhak Shapiro of Yitzhar permits even the murder of babies and children who pose threat.

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.
