Yesha Rabbinical Council: During time of war, enemy has no innocentsThe Yesha Rabbinical Council announced in response to an IDF attack in Kfar Qanna that "according to Jewish law, during a time of battle and war, there is no such term as 'innocents' of the enemy." All of the discussions on Christian morality are weakening the spirit of the army and the nation and are costing us in the blood of our soldiers and civilians," the statement said. (Efrat Weiss)(07.30.06, 17:37)
The disdain for the life of others, the jab at "Christian" morality, and the tone of superiority is appalling ... I wonder what the response would be if this was an Imam and a Muslim Sharia Council that was saying the same thing ... Meanwhile, the Antiochian Orthodox Christian church in North America has issued a statement on this atrocity, calling Qana by its New Testament name (Cana) and linking it to Jesus Christ. They also quote Joshua 6:21.
