    Rabbi Yosef Elitzur was not "detained by police" - he was arrested and carried away. The Israeli police are waging a forceful and increasingly violent campaign against religious Jews, with the active support of the Courts of Aharon Barak and Dorit Beinish. They pointedly do NOT question the right of Jew-haters like Prof. Shternhell, Neve Gordon and other "academics" nor "artists" like Yigal Tomarkin to foment anti-Jewish hatred. Hypocrisy at work! The book in question does NOT promote the killing of anyone. It DOES however specify the theoretical pre-requisites needed in extreme circumstances before taking any such action. There are similar instructions in other contexts in many other countries intended for soldiers and policemen regarding opening fire with intent to kill and for doctors in harvesting organs from people who aren't dead yet. NONE of those writings result in arrests by the THOUGHT POLICE. Those who warned that Aharon Barak is a danger to democracy can now say "I told you". As for me, I told you.
