He holds that the entire Gaza City is responsible because they do nothing to stop the constant firing of Kassam rockets. 

Rabbi Eliyahu’s son, Shmuel Eliyahu, who is chief rabbi of Safed, said his father opposed a ground troop incursion into Gaza that would endanger IDF soldiers. Rather, he advocated carpet bombing the general area from which the Kassams were launched, regardless of the price in Palestinian life.

“If they don’t stop after we kill 100, then we must kill a thousand,” said Shmuel Eliyahu. “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.”


  1. Sadly, Mordechai HaYehudi will only be vilified by the government of Homon. And because the Zionist government has had far too many Homons, this R’ Mordechai is too late, and only Eliyahu Hanovi can save the Jews living in EY.

  2. The problem with Rabbi Eliyahu shlit”a is that he makes too much sense. Does he really expect powerless Olmert to do anything like that? In a world where the farkrumte, twisted minded, Leftists have all the power, whether it’s the media, the politicians, etc. his letter is a waste of words and effort.

  3. i have a feeling some of what he said has been lost in transerlating . i am not saying peace but by killing more will just get more arabs from other country attacking us . i would say dig a tunnel under gaza and put a VERY VERY big bomb there and blow it up it will case them to carry on killing each other and we can say we have nothing to do with it . they all have tunnels all what will appen is they will say an acidnet happened

  4. Nachon v’yofi! This morning xtra kavana wil be given to my davening. The time is 5 am, I am at the Beit Knesset, and am so happy at Chacham’s statement. Let Gaza be razed.

  5. At a time of war, Jewish lives can not be sacrificed to ensure the safety of “innocent” victims. Any battle that bnei yisroel fought in the our History there were casualties, and there will always be.

  6. “…is morally justified to cary out carpet bombings.”

    being as Rabbi Mordechai Eliyahu called for it, the answer is YES!

    one reason could be (just a suggestion): if they are blasted to TOTAL defeat, they will not be able to bomb OUR children.

    we lost R”L a 13 year-old boy today…
