It is unfortunate and disappointing to hear these statements from a "respected" man. These statements and other ones he said in the past reflect his aging thoughts and some degree of dementia. It seems it is time that he retires and stop his appearances in public. It is shame to hear this hatered statements that will prevent peace and supports the violence and hate. He feeds the extremes in shas to be violent and prote violence against israeli arabs as well as the palestenians in the west bank and gaza. God protect us from these creatures.
