Mora D’asra of Yishuv Otniel and Rosh Yeshivat Hesder Otniel, noted talmid chacham Rabbi Re’em HaKohen Shlita comes out in the harshest terms against the infamous wedding video showing Hilltop Youths dancing while waving weapons and with a photo of Ali, the Arab child killed in the Duma arson attack with a knife through the photo.
Rav HaKohen tells his talmidim that this in no way represents Torah in any way, shape or form. He decries murder for the sake of murder and questions how one could remain at such a wedding. He cites the magnitude of the chilul Hashem, stating this did not involve an individual but a large group and this just made the chilul Hashem that much worse and painful.
The rav also decries Islamic religious leaders for not a single one has come out to decry the murder of children.
