The Israeli army's chief rabbinate gave soldiers preparing to enter the Gaza Strip a booklet implying that all Palestinians are their mortal enemies and advising them that cruelty is sometimes a "good attribute".

The booklet, entitled Go Fight My Fight: A Daily Study Table for the Soldier and Commander in a Time of War, was published especially for Operation Cast Lead, the devastating three-week campaign launched with the stated aim of ending rocket fire against southern Israel. The publication draws on the teachings of Rabbi Shlomo Aviner, head of the Jewish fundamentalist Ateret Cohanim seminary in Jerusalem.

In one section, Rabbi Aviner compares Palestinians to the Philistines, a people depicted in the Bible as a war-like menace and existential threat to Israel.


www.independent.co.uk...






Interesting article from the Independent newspaper that seems to give a partial explanation for the unusually high numbers of individual acts of cruelty in the resent Gaza onslaught.

While propaganda leaflets are often dropped on th enemy it is also unusual to distribute such material to one's own side in modern times. Often the population is propagandised to tolerate conflicts but on this occassion the Israeli state encouraged its individual soldiers to disregard the law with direct and explicit instructions justified on religious grounds.

Unlike the laws of war between facing armies, a war waged against a captive population is illegal to begin with but Israel went beyond that.

Good post.

That is pretty much standard procedure in conflicts, usually employed when moral of the troops slips down a notch ...

Sure handing booklets to soldiers facing dangerous armies is one thing but prepping them this way before laying siege to a walled conglomerate of refugees camps is another.

By the way, these handouts were distribute a long time before the attack, so morale was not an issue.

The booklet, entitled "Go Fight My Fight"...


Why don't they go fight it themselves?

Been in the war myself. Propaganda material is always used when moral is down.

The only question here is why it was down at the time of the handouts and in what condition is it at currently ?

Well at least it given to adults and not 15-year-old kids like Hamas does. I’m all for it when fighting a terror organization…

What of it? Palestinians teaching their kids military stuff, big deal. We have cadets in the UK.

The important thing to reflect on is the recent murderous slaughter of Palestinian children by the Israel. I recall more than 350 killed by white phopherous, DIME bombs and HEs.

Heck, even kids have the right to defend themselves.

Sorry bud, your standard zionist memes does not work here, try youtube.

Even if Palestinians were to strap explosives on their minors, which has actually never happened, it does not explain away rabbis like the one above inviting war crimes or the mass killings of Palestinians we saw in Gaza.

This post clearly shows what happens when you put these radical men with their big beards in charge.

This "hate leaflet" could be used as evidence in the building case for warcrimes against these israeli officials.

I see you have been keeping lists. No problems then, you have nothing to worry about.

I personally think the rabbi above is a fanatic and a racist just like the collective action of the Israeli state in Gaza what with the murder of 1300+ and more than 5000 wounded in Gaza. Chow.

You put up a video of kids doing what their told and somehow expect to make everything you defend right. Your video only proves that Muslims love their cameras. I know of a bunch of white little kids here who say really bad things about blacks, Hispanics, Jews, Muslims, and just about every race you... or they, rather, can think of. They say how they would love to kill them and do things that no child could ever come up with. Maybe we should invade the US for having these types of people... oh wait we are the US.

You want racism and fanatics here... watch FOX news. And in response to the last part of your post, please tell me WHAT EXACTLY IS SO "MODERN" ABOUT KILLING ANYONE? THERE COULD NOT BE A MORE PRIMITIVE ACTION!! People like you are the same all around the world, well said phrases but stupid none-the-less.
