Copies of a new book that provides justification for the killing of non-Jews could not be found in Jerusalem at the beginning of the week. At Mercaz Harav Yeshiva, the flagship educational institution of Orthodox Zionism, there was a small sign in the entrance advertising the sale of Torat Hamelech: Dinei Nefashot Bein Yisrael Le'Amim (The King's Torah: Laws of Life and Death between Jews and the Nations)...But the books were gone.
Lior...whose name and telephone number appeared on the advertisement for Torat Hamelech, was surprised at how quickly the books had been sold. "Really? They're all gone?" he said, adding that there was no other place in the Jerusalem area or anyplace else besides Yitzhar where the book could be found.
Part of the reason for the interest was a front-page headline in Ma'ariv on Monday outlining the most shocking items from the book, such as halachic license to kill innocent children in battle situations in which their presence endangers Jewish lives, or even if there is concern that these young children will grow to become mortal enemies of Jews.
I previously posted the cover.
Well, here are some peeks.
