Torat HaMelech (תורת המלך) - Killing Gentiles and the Halachah
This is a book that deals with the Jewish judicial aproach towards non-Jews from the perspective of the halachah (rabbinic law). Its premises are taken from the dictum of the "Noahide Laws"--which according to the Talmud are the requirements for gentiles to be regarded as "righteous among the nations of the world".
The book begins (in chapter one) by explaining that the sixth commandment "You shall not commit murder" (לא תרצח), applies only to the killing of Jews and not gentiles.
(at the begining of Chapter One, [page 17] we read):
"In this chapter we deal with [our understanding] that the prohibition, "You shall not commit murder" has nothing to do with the killing of a gentile, and that the prohibition to Israel to kill gentiles is predicated on the prohibition given to the descendants of Noah (i.e., noahides) from killing each other.
As an apendix to the chapter, furthermore, we engage with the principle that Jews [too] are responsible to abide by the commandments given to the sons of Noah."
The book proceeds to establish that talmudic law, as explained by a 12th-century rabbi named Moses Maimonides, rules that gentiles are liable to the death penalty if they kill either other gentiles or Jews:
(translation:) "The first man [i.e., Adam] was commanded concerning six things: Over idolatry, over cursing the Name of God, over bloodshed, over 'uncovering the nakedness' [of those sexually forbidden to him], over theft, and concerning the establishments of courts of law [to enforce the abovementioned rules]... To Noah [God] added [the prohibition of eating meat cut] from an animal that is still alive... A Noahide who kills a human being, even a fetus in its mother's womb, is to be executed on account of it." (Quoting Maimonides' Mishneh Torah chapter 9, rules 1 and 4).
In order to prove that Jews are permitted [by Jewish law] to kill even innocent witnessess of a Jewish onslaught of non-Jews, the book, in page 187 quotes the Sefer Chassidim (Book of the Pious Ones) paragraph # 1017 that says:
"If some Jews are walking on the road and they are encountered by vandals, and they stand against the Jews, but the Jews [end up] killing the vandals, yet there are goyim there [who witnessed the whole incident], and the Jews become afraid that the [witnessess] would go and tell the children [of the dead] or their relatives, and they take revenge on them; In a case like this, the Jews are empowered to kill even those strangers. It does not matter if the strangers beg [for their lives] saying: 'we will not tell!' Because they are not to be believed if they belong to that evil people (i.e., goyim), as it is said (Psalm 144.8): 'Their mouth speaks vanity, and their right hand is a right hand of falsehood'. And we find concerning [King] David (1 Sam. 27.11): 'And David would not leave alive any man or woman......lest they inform the Philistines'."
How To Kill Goyim And Influence People -- Torat Ha'melech
Leading fundamentalist rabbis gather in Israel to defend the publication of a book, Torat Ha'Melech, that attempted to provide halakhic justification for the killing of non-Jews, including innocent children and families. The gathering exposed not only the ferocious racism of a swath of Israel's pro-settlement rabbinate, but the powerlessness of the government to stop them.
