OCCUPIED JERUSALEM, (PIC)– The chief rabbi of the Kiryat Arba has ruled it legal to kill all Gentiles (non-Jews) without qualification.
The ruling by Dov Lior was derived from other major Israeli rabbis who hold it permissible to kill Arabs without cause.
Israeli police have publicly arrested Lior, but will likely release him soon as it usually does in similar cases. But the arrest has raised the ire of ministers in Netanyahu’s government.
Netanyahu’s government showed tacit approval of the racial ruling when Israeli Minister of Interior Yitzhak Aharonovitch called the consequent arrest a mistake by the Al-Khalil police chief.
Lior made headlines last week when he called for a launch in preparations to build the alleged temple.
