Rabbis refuse to be questioned in 'Torat Hamelech' case

Rabbi Yaacov Yosef, son of Ovadia Yosef, and Rabbi Dov Lior were summoned to be questioned by the police after expressing their support for the book "Torat Hamelech" but refused to comply with the summons. Lior failed to appear to the meeting scheduled for Monday while Yosef announced he would not appear for the meeting scheduled for Tuesday.


About a fortnight ago the book's author Rabbi Yitzhak Shapira was questioned on suspicion of incitement. The book deals with halachic injunctions on the issue of killing non-Jews, among other subjects. The book suggests that it is permissible to kill non-Jews if they break one of the seven mitzvoth, as long as this is done out of concern for keeping the mitzvoth. (Aviel Magnezi)
