It's always interesting to watch the reactions when a piece of particularly gross bigotry like this comes out. OK, the Rabbi - who obviously should lose his job instantly as a result of this outburst - is just a jihadist who would find a place in Al-Qayda. But look, for example, at "Mark from Georgis", who can put forward a doctrine which would justify every Palestinian attack on Sderot: the population is complicit in attacks on Israelm so they're lefitimate targets. If you believe that one, any rocket or suicide bombing is justified by the Israeli population's complicity in the IDF killing civilians. But overall it's quite comforting to see, from the talkackers, that the traditional Jewish emphasis on morality and respect for life is still there among Jews. Just not in the IDF.
