Shortly before Israeli occupation soldiers in cold blood murdered two Gaza children, who apparently were searching for scrap metal to sell for a few cents in order to help feed their impoverished families, the former Chief rabbi of Israel, Mordechai Elyahu, urged the Israeli army and government to use the "Nazi choice" against Palestinians.
Elyahu reportedly petitioned the Israeli government to carry out a series of carpet bombings of Palestinian population centers in Gaza, arguing that a ground invasion of the world’s most crowded spot would endanger Israeli soldiers.
"If they don’t stop after we kill 100, then we must kill a thousand," said Shmuel Elyahu, the son of Mordechai Elyahu, quoting his father. "And if they do not stop after 1,000, then we must kill 10,000. If they still don’t stop we must kill 100,000, even a million. Whatever it takes to make them stop."
Mordechai, considered one of the most knowledgeable Talmudic sages in Israel, said it was forbidden to risk the lives of Jews for fear of injuring and killing Palestinian civilians.
This is not the first time Elyahu issues such an outrageous Talmudic edict. A few years ago, he called on the Israeli occupation army not to refrain from killing Palestinian children if that meant "saving Jewish lives."
Elyahu is associated with Merkaz Ha’rav, a Talmudic College in West Jerusalem, that is largely considered to be the theological and ideological nerve center of religious-messianic Zionism.
The College teaches and promotes the teachings of Rabbi Abraham Isaac Kook, the first Chief Rabbi of the immigrant Jewish community in Palestine who is viewed as the religious and spiritual godfather and mentor of the settler movement, known as Gush Emunim (the bloc of faithful."
According to Israeli writer Yair Sheleg Rabbi Kook wrote that "the difference between the Jewish soul and the souls of all non-Jews, no matter what their rank and level of understanding, is bigger and deeper than the difference between the human soul and the animal soul." (Moses and the Prophets never taught this outrageous invention which is totally incompatible with the Abrahamic traditions).
This totally racist discourse toward non-Jews represents the mainstream and modus operandi at Merkaz Harav where Talmudic sages such as Haim Druckman, Avraham Shapira, Dov Lior, etc, teach that non-Jews are sub-humans, and ought to be enslaved or destroyed.
Western people, constantly brainwashed with unceasing Zionist propaganda and disinformation about Israeli "democracy" and "liberalism" might be prompted to think that such ideas are marginal, eccentric or even anecdotal and that they are espoused by only a small bunch of Talmudic extremists.
But this is not the case at all. Today, this Nazi-like ideology is "manual for action" for hundreds of thousands of Jews around the world, especially in Israel, including the estimated half a million settlers in the West Bank and East Jerusalem who openly claim that non-Jews living under Jewish rule ought to be enslaved, expelled or annihilated.
A few years ago, Haim Yavin, a prominent TV personality in Israel, did a documentary on Jewish settlers in the West Bank and how they viewed their Arab neighbors.
The documentary featured a Jewish settler woman who told Yavin that "if we Jews get together, we will make the Palestinians our slaves…and Muhammed; will make coffee for both of us."!!!
The more radical settlers (we are talking abut tens of thousands of people, such as the followers of Baruch Goldstein, the Jewish terrorist who in 1994 murdered 29 Palestinian civilians while praying at the Ibrahimi Mosque in downtown Hebron, and the so-called hilltop youths) go one step further and believe that Palestinians belong to one and only place: The Ovens.
Last year, when some peace-minded Israeli activists visited Hebron and sought to erase graffiti reading "Arabs to the Oven" scrawled outside the settler compound of Abraham Avino, local settlers ganged up on the activists, calling them "Nazis, Arab lovers, and whores" as pro-settler policemen and soldiers looked on rather passively. One particularly nasty settler woman, the wife of a rabbi, shouted at one female activist, saying "How many Arabs did you sleep with today?"
There is no doubt that the nefarious ideas of Jewish supremacy, as taught by Talmudic circles such as Mirkaz Harav, is poisoning and even nazifying the minds of thousands of Jewish and Israeli youths.
Earlier in May, a recent Jewish immigrant from France murdered in cold blood an Arab taxi driver from East Jerusalem after beguiling the unsuspecting victim to take him to Netanya.
The murderer, named Julian Sufir, had apparently been subjected to heavy doses of religious indoctrination at a synagogue near his home, which probably preached the message that non-Jews are infra-humans.
When this Sufir was interrogated by policy, he so calmly and nonchalantly told them that "I just wanted to kill an Arab, any Arab. There is no difference between killing an Arab and killing an animal. When I killed him, I felt I was slaughtering a sheep.!!" (see my article Hypocrisy with French Flavor- www.thepeoplevoice.org)
In truth, one can hardly exaggerate the danger of these powerful fascist elements in Israel as a growing number of Jewish youngsters are being inculcated with the same venomous hatred and fascistic mindset that once brainwashed German youths more than sixty years ago. We know the rest of the story.
This danger is so real and so tangible especially when one considers the fact that tens of thousands of Israeli occupation soldiers happen to be graduates of Talmudic schools, known as Yeshevot.
Needless to say, most of these schools teach that killing innocent Arab children is a great mitzvah and makes a Jew closer to God.
This little-known fact, which most westerners are not allowed to know or even discover, explains why Jewish soldiers in Gaza and Nablus shoot Palestinian school children right in the head with no compunction or guilty conscience.
Finally, the peoples of the world, including man honest and peace-minded Jews, are invited to imagine how Israel would look like and how the world would look like when these Judeo-Nazi forces assume power in Israel and be in control of Israel’s 300 nuclear bombs.
I say "when" because the Israeli Jewish society is drifting menacingly to jingoistic religious chauvinism that can be compared with the drifting ideological currents among Germans in the mid and late 1930s. Hence, a takeover of power in Israel by the settler and pro-settler camp is not a matter of "if" but rather "when" it will happen.
This is not a matter of concern for Palestinians and Arabs and Muslims alone. The whole world would be facing a real danger. Germany, too, would be in danger since Talmudic sages are already saying that Germans would eventually be forced to pay dearly for the holocaust.
