"If they don't stop after we kill 100, then we must kill a thousand. And if they do not stop after 1,000 then we must kill 10,000. If they still don't stop we must kill 100,000, even a million. Whatever it takes to make them stop."

- Shmuel Eliyahu, chief rabbi of Safed, speaking re Gaza. He was being interviewed re a ruling made by his father, former Sephardi chief rabbi Mordechai Eliyahu, who wrote a letter to Prime Minister Olmert stating that all civilians living in Gaza are collectively guilty for Kassam attacks on Sderot and that there was absolutely no moral prohibition against the indiscriminate killing of civilians during a potential massive military offensive on Gaza aimed at stopping the rocket launchings.
