An Israeli rabbi urged the killing of women and children in the Gaza Strip and said he considered it a response to the teachings of halakha, or Jewish law.

Rabbi Eliyahu Mali made the remarks in front of his students and the video widely circulated on social media.

“In our mitzvah (holy) war, in our situation in Gaza, according to what the law says, ‘Not every soul shall live,’ and the logic of this is very clear: if you do not kill them, they will kill you,” said Mali.

He claimed that those described as “vandals” in today’s war are “the children of the previous war whom we kept alive, and in reality, it is the women who produce terrorists.”

“This means that this rule (do not keep alive every soul) is very clear in its concept, either you or them,” he said. “Whoever comes to kill you, kill him first.”

“Whoever comes to kill you with this concept does not only include the young man aged 16, 18, 20, or 30 who is now pointing a weapon at you, but also the future generation (the children of Gaza), and those who produce the future generation (women of Gaza), because there is really no difference”.

Mali heads the Shirat Moshe religious school in Jaffa, in central Israel, where students serve in the army.

Calls to kill and ethnically cleanse Palestinians have not been limited to religious extremists but have been spread by top Israeli officials, ministers, and Israeli soldiers.

Genocide Continues

Currently on trial before the International Court of Justice for genocide against Palestinians, Israel has been waging a devastating war on Gaza since October 7. 

According to Gaza’s Ministry of Health, 30,960 Palestinians have been killed, and 72,524 wounded in Israel’s ongoing genocide in Gaza starting on October 7.

Moreover, at least 7,000 people are unaccounted for, presumed dead under the rubble of their homes throughout the Strip. 

Palestinian and international organizations say that the majority of those killed and wounded are women and children.

The Israeli aggression has also resulted in the forceful displacement of nearly two million people from all over the Gaza Strip, with the vast majority of the displaced forced into the densely crowded southern city of Rafah near the border with Egypt – in what has become Palestine’s largest mass exodus since the 1948 Nakba.

Israel says that 1,200 soldiers and civilians were killed during the Al-Aqsa Flood Operation on October 7. Israeli media published reports suggesting that many Israelis were killed on that day by ‘friendly fire.’

  1. Calling for the murder of any civilians should be condemned. Israelis will be quick to condemn this quack.
    If you do a search for the phrase “Rabbi calls for genocide”… you find ONE entry.
    Try searching for “Imam calls for Genocide”…can you even count the number of results?
    I encourage all to contact Hamas to convey this message.

  2. Rabbi Eliyahu Mali is spitting on the memorials of thos Jews killed in the Holocaust. That self-same message was at the heart of the the Nazi Final Solution. Rabbi Eliyahu Mali is de-legitimizing Israel, for what it’s worth.

  3. Rabbi Mali is a disgrace to his religion because he is weaponising Judaism through selective interpretation to generate hatred and justify genocide, But that is nothing new, history shows only too well how much blood has been shed, and hatred generated, in the name of one religion or another.
    Religion actually conflicts with the common humanity that should unite us all because it differentiates and discriminates just as much as ultra-nationalism.
    Religion, whatever form it takes, should play NO part in politics.

  4. Such an extremely wicked Zionist rabbi! With role models like that, it’s really no surprise why Israel’s Zionist population is so savagely violent and genocidal.

  5. German Nazi criminals were hanged in Nuremberg for opinions like this monster’s…

    • They were not “hanged” for their opinions; they were “hanged” for the war crimes they committed. Hopefully, one day very soon, all of these genocidal Zionist monsters will hang for the horrifying atrocities they’ve committed against the Palestinian people.
