Rabbi Yitzhak Shapira was arrested Monday on suspicion of incitement to violence against non-Jews. The rabbi was arrested Monday on charges of incitement after the publication of his book ‘The King’s Torah’ in which he deals with subject of killing non-Jews.
He was arrested following an investigation by Israeli police and on the order of the Israeli attorney general.
Here are a few quotes from the book:
‘Anywhere where the presence of a gentile poses a threat to Israel, it is permissible to kill him, even if it is a righteous gentile who is not responsible for the threatening situation.’
‘When we encounter a gentile who has violated the Seven Laws of Noah and kill him out of concern for upholding the seven mitzvoth, no prohibition has been violated.’
When the police arrested him at his home they took several items and are now questioning him.
