Uproar over rabbi book

Controversial book authorises killing of non-Jews if they pose threat to Israel.

Arab members of Israel’s parliament have called for the banning of a controversial book written by a Jewish rabbi in which he appears to authorise the killing of non-Jews, including children, who pose a threat to Israel.

While many rabbis dismiss Rabbi Yitzhak Shapira’s book, some prominent rabbis have recommended it to their students and followers.
