"A gentile . . . is liable for the death penalty . . . if he has invented a religious holiday for himself . .
. The general principle is we do not allow them to make new religious rituals and to make 'mitzvahs' for themselves by their own devices . . . if he does make some new 'mitzvah,' we lash him, punish him, and inform him that he is obligated with the death penalty for this." (Rambam Mishne Torah--Hilchose Melachim

Rabbi R. Simon ben Yohai: "Tob shebe goyyim harog. Even the best among the Gentiles deserves to be killed."

Here's an exchange of letters between a young Israeli soldier and his rabbi, published in the yearbook of one of the Israel's most prestigious religious colleges, Midrashiyyat No'am, where many leaders and activists of the National Religious Party and Gush
Emunim have been educated.

Letter from the soldier Moshe to Rabbi Sbipn 'on
Weiser '

With God's help, to His Honor, my dear Rabbi,
'In one of the discussions in our group, there was a debate about the "purity of weapons" and we discussed
whether it is permitted to kill unarmed men - or women and children? Or perhaps we should take revenge on the
Arabs? And then everyone answered according to his own understanding. I could not arrive at a clear decision,
whether Arabs should be treated like the Amelekites, meaning that one is permitted to murder them until their remembrance is blotted out from under heaven, or perhaps one should do as in a just war, in which one kills only the soldiers?

'A second problem I have is whether I am permitted to put myself in danger by allowing a woman to stay alive? For there have been cases when women threw hand grenades. Or am I permitted to give water to an Arab
who put his hand up? For there may be reason to fear that he only means to deceive me and will kill me, and such things have happened.

'I conclude with a warm greeting to the rabbi and all his family. - Moshe.'

Reply of. Shun 'on Weiser to Moshe

'With the help of Heaven. Dear Moshe, Greetings.
'The non-Jewish nations have a custom according to
which war has its own rules, like those of a game, like the rules of football or basketball. But according to the sayings of our sages, of blessed memory, a ... i war for us is not a game but a vital necessity, and only by this standard must we decide how to wage it. On the one hand .... i we seem to learn that if a Jew murders a Gentile, he is regarded as a murderer and, except for the fact that no court has the right to punish him, the gravity of the deed is like that of any other murder. But we find in the very same authorities in another place a ... that
Rabbi Shim'on used to say: "The best of Gentiles kill him; the best of snakes dash out its brains."

'It might perhaps be argued that the expression "kill" in the saying of R. Shim'on is only figurative and should not be taken literally but as meaning "oppress" or some similar attitude, and in this way we also avoid a contradiction with the authorities quoted earlier. Or one might argue that this saying, though meant literally, is amerelyi his own personal opinion, disputed by other sages aquoted earlieri. But we find the true explanation in the Tosalot. There a .... i we learn the following comment on the talmudic pronouncement that Gentiles who fall into a well should not be helped out, but neither should they be pushed into the well to be killed, which means that they should neither be saved from death nor killed directly. And the Tosafot write as follows:

"And if it is queried abecausei in another place it
was said The best of Gentiles - kill him, then the answer is that this asayingi is meant for wartime." a
... i

'According to the commentators of the Tosafot, a distinction must be made between wartime and peace, so that although during peace time it is forbidden to kill Gentiles, in a case that occurs in wartime it is a mitzvah aimperative, religious dutyi to kill them.a...i

'And this is the difference between a Jew and a
Gentile: although the rule "Whoever comes to kill you, kill him first" applies to a Jew, as was said in
Tractate Sanhednn aof the Talmudi, page 72a, still it only applies to him if there is aactuali ground to fear that he is coming to kill you. But a Gentile during wartime is usually to be presumed so, except
when it is quite clear that he has no evil intent.
This is the rule of "purity of weapons" according to the Halakhah - and not the alien conception which is now accepted in the Israeli army and which has been the cause of many aJewishi casualties. I enclose a newspaper cutting with the speech made last week in the Knesset by Rabbi Kalman Kahana, which shows in a very lifelike - and also painful - way how this
"purity of weapons" has caused deaths.
'Be in peace, you and all Jews, and aI hope toi see you soon, as you say. Yours - Shim'on.

Reply of Moshe to R. Shun 'on Weiser

'To His Honor, my dear Rabbi,

'First I hope that you and your family are in health and are all right.

'I have received your long letter and am grateful for your personal watch over me, for I assume that you
write to many, and most of your time is taken up with your studies in your own program.

'Therefore my thanks to you are doubly deep.

'As for the letter itself, I have understood it as follows:

'In wartime I am not merely permitted, but enjoined to kill every Arab man and woman whom I chance upon, if there is reason to fear that they help in the war against us, directly or indirectly. And as far as I am concerned I have to kill them even if that might result in an involvement with the military law. I think that this matter of the purity of weapons should be transmitted to educational institutions, at least the religious ones, so that they should have a position about this subject and so that they will not
wander in the broad fields of "logic", especially on this subject; and the rule has to be explained as it should be followed in practice. For, I am sorry to say, I have seen different types of "logic" here even among the religious comrades. I do hope that you shall be active in this, so that our boys will know the line of their ancestors clearly and unambiguously.

'I conclude here, hoping that when the atrainingi course ends, in about a month, I shall be able to come to the yeshivah atalmudic collegei. Greetings Moshe.'

"Dr. Yitzhak Ravid, a senior researcher at Rafael,
Israel's Armament Development Authority, proposed during a short speech under the heading "Learning from
Iran and Egypt," that the state implement a stringent policy of family planning in relation to its Muslim population, claiming that "the delivery rooms in
Soroka Hospital in Be'er Sheva have turned into a factory for the production of a backward population"
