Britain bans radical rabbi

TEL AVIV, Israel (Ma’an) — The British border agency has informed a fundamentalist Rabbi that he will not be allowed to enter the country for the next three years, Israeli daily Haaretz reported Thursday.

Rabbi Yosef Elitzur received a letter from the British authorities, signed by the home secretary, informing him of their decision.

His hard-line book says:"Anywhere where the influence of gentiles constitutes a threat to the life of Israel, it is permissible to kill them,"

Elitzur is co-author of the hard-line book “The King’s Torah” and was briefly arrested in Israel last August on suspicion of incitement to violence……

The book, which has been banned from sale in Israel, reportedly says babies and children of Israel’s enemies may be killed in certain circumstances since “it is clear that they will grow to harm us.”

It also says non-Jews are “uncompassionate by nature” and that attacks on them “curb their evil inclination.”
