Religious edicts, of Israel's rabbis are drawing attention of the public to their frequent issuance and their impact on Israeli society. These often include excerpts of verses from the Torah which sanction the killing of non-Jews, including old men, women and children. [some verses are quoted below]
“Now therefore Kill every male among the little ones, and Kill every woman (female) that hath known man by lying (having sex) with him. “But keep Alive for yourselves all the Girls and all the women who are Virgins.”(Numbers;31:17-18).The Jews salvaged for themselves; “and thirty-two thousand persons in all, women who had not known man by lying with him.”(Numbers; 31:35).
“But in the cities of these peoples that the LORD your God gives you for an inheritance, (O’ Jews) you shall save alive nothing that breathes,(Deuteronomy;20:16).
“And ye shall chase your enemies, and they shall fall before you by the sword. And five of you shall chase an hundred, and an hundred of you shall put ten thousand to flight: and your enemies shall fall before you by the sword.” (Leviticus;26:7-8).
“Let the high praises of God be in their mouth, and a two-edged sword in their hand; To execute vengeance upon the heathen, and punishments upon the people; To bind their kings with chains, and their nobles with fetters of iron; To execute upon them the judgment written: this honour have all his saints. Praise ye the LORD” (Psalm;149:6-9).
‘And they (the Jews) Utterly Destroyed all that was in the city, both man and woman, young and old, ox and sheep, and Ass, with the edge of the sword”(Joshua;6:21)
”He (Joshua) let None remain alive.” (Joshua;10:28).
New Testament [Christian Bible]
“But those mine enemies, which would not that I should reign over them, bring hither, and slay them before me.”(Luke; 19:27). “And what more shall I say? For time would fail me to tell of Gideon, Barak, Samson, Jephthah, of David and Samuel and the prophets — who through faith conquered kingdoms, enforced justice, received promises, stopped the mouths of lions, quenched raging fire, escaped the edge of the sword, won strength out of weakness, became mighty in war, put foreign armies to flight.” (Hebrews; 11: 32-34)The monkish morality of the Gospels in their present form has never been followed by any self-respecting Christian or other nation in history.
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~The Zionist entity seems to be turning into a fundamentalist religious state whose edicts are ironically compatible with those issued by Al Qaida, causing people around the world ‘to hate religions producing them'. Both, Judaism and Islam are suffering from decrees with their followers paying a heavy price and being blamed for them.
They have been pushing Israelis further toward extremism and completely eradicating the separation between religion and the state which diluted Israel's loose secular status and image.
The Israeli Rabbinical Council has never interfered in politics since 1948. Only after the Camp David Treaty was signed in 1979 stipulating an Israeli withdrawal from Sinai that some Israeli rabbis of no standing began to issue edicts that banned any Israeli troop pullout from Egyptian territories. This religious interference greatly increased after the Oslo agreement signed in 1993, between Israel and the Palestine Liberation Organisation (PLO). As a matter of fact, Rabbis call the Israeli withdrawal from the West Bank ‘a withdrawal from the heart of Israel'! In the wake of the Palestinian uprising (Intifada) of Al Aqsa in late 2000, some rabbis started to issue Jewish decrees that call for the annihilation of Palestinians of the 1948 areas, whether babies being nursed, or young and old men and women among unarmed civilians. In fact, adherents of the extreme religious right in Israel are mostly colonists occupying Palestinian lands and have a lot to lose by any Israeli withdrawal.
They are now pressuring the rabbis to issue edicts to prevent any pull-back from the occupied Palestinian West Bank and the Gaza Strip. One of the most heinous edicts, quoted the Torah in relation to the battle of Jericho by Joshua where the leader of Israel ordered him to kill all inhabitants, possess all their possessions, and have no mercy on any of their children or in leaving plants and trees in their fields or any of their livestock alive. This ugly edict was issued by Mordechai Elyahu, one of Israel's chief rabbis, on March 6, 2008.
This edict has quoted one of ‘the profane verses' in the Torah which all Jewish and Christian Biblical scholars who teach Bible studies in major western universities have categorically rejected as being ‘profane additions by the scribes' as the Torah was being put in a written form after being orally transmitted for seven hundred years during the Hebrew exile in Babylon. Some Jewish scribes also added all the fables found in the library of Babylon to the current Torah, according to the same scholars. These verses are the very reason that stand behind the division of the Jewish community into two sections; the ‘Reform Jews' who do not take the Torah literally and the ‘Conservative Jews' who hold on to the Book's contents including ‘the profane verses' which contradict the Ten Commandments. How can the Ten Commandments be given to Moses explicitly defining behaviour principles such as ‘Thou shall not kill' and ‘Thou shall not covet thy neighbour's property' and then orders Moses to ‘kill all the little boys (of the Midianites in Sinai) and all females except for the virgins… and children to be kept for good use'.
These Jewish edicts have sanctioned Israeli army bombardment of Palestinian civilians in their homes during the war against Gaza in 2008-2009. The same religious decrees were used earlier to kill former Israeli prime minister Yitzhak Rabin.
On January 5, 2008, Rabbi Shalom Dov Wolpe issued an edict that also called for the killing of the then prime minister Ehud Olmert, his deputy, Chaim Ramon, his foreign minister, Tzipi Livni and the defence minister Ehud Barak, if they approve a peace settlement with the Palestinians.
More notorious is Rabbi Dov Lior, the most extremist among his fellow rabbis who puts to shame the likes of Osama Bin Laden. Lior issued an edict to kill all Palestinian civilians, including women and children and is now advocating the destruction of the Al Haram Al Sharif in occupied Jerusalem in order to build the Jewish temple on its site.
Indeed, these Jewish edicts are having their effect on Israeli recruits serving in the Occupied Territories, according to a study conducted by the University of Bar Elan. This study showed that they would follow such decrees instead of orders issued by their commanders. Israeli writer Sefi Rachlevsky summed up the situation regarding Lior; "Israel has established under the authority of Lior a world which consists of Jewish citizens, but not the Arabs ... all our students learn early in Israeli schools that only the Jews are human beings ... there is no other alternative; you are either with Lior or against him".
