Rabbi: Hang Arab children from trees

A Zionist cleric has urged the Israeli regime to give the green light to the massacre of Arabs in retaliation for Palestinian attacks.

In an article published in the newsletter Eretz Yisrael Shelanu Shmuel Eliyahu, the chief rabbi of Safed, has urged the Israeli regime to officially allow “revenge against Arabs to restore Israel’s deterrence.”

“I’m not talking about individual people in particular, I’m talking about the state. [Israel] has to pain them to the point where they scream ‘Enough,’ to the point where they fall flat on their face and scream ‘help.’ Not for the sake of satisfying the need for revenge but for the purposes of deterrence,” he wrote.

In the newsletter Eliyahu proposes “hanging the children” of those who attacked the Mercaz Harav yeshiva from a tree.

The rabbi added: “We’ll stay here. We need to live with those who understand very well the language of revenge.”

On Wednesday, Mossawa Center, an Arab human rights group, called for a probe into Eliyahu’s remarks.
