December 27th marks the first anniversary of Israeli assault on the besieged Gaza that left over 1,440 Palestinians dead, of whom 313 were children and 116 women. In the Israeli assault, called Operation Cast Lead, another 5,380 Palestinians were injured.

Shockingly, Rabbi Yitzhak Shapira of the West Bank settlement of Yitzhar recently released "The King's Torah" which absolves the Israeli army of killing innocent children as it says that Jews can kill Palestinian children who threaten Israel.

"It is permissible to kill gentile [read "Palestinian"] babies "because their presence assists murder, and there is reason to harm children if it is clear that they will grow up to harm us... it is permissible to harm the children of a leader in order to stop him from acting evilly... we have seen in the Halakha that even babies of gentiles who do not violate the seven Noahide laws, there is cause to kill them because of the future threat that will be caused if they are raised to be wicked people like their parents."

This goes way beyond preemption. Shapira is advocating killing Palestinian babies who don't even pose a threat to a Jew and who he can't possibly know in the future will do so.

The Gladstone report

In its report, the Goldstone-led UN investigatory team described the assault as Israeli terror. South African Judge Richard Goldstone, himself a Jew, led a transparent UN mission into the horror that happened in Gaza during the 23-day massacre. The report documented evidences of Israeli war crimes.
