Tikkum Olam Blog: Rabbinic leaders (who say it is okay to assassinate a prime minister) poison the well

Numbered people are 1-Yitzchak Rabin, 2- Yigal Amir, 3-Student Mordi Israel, 4-Driver Menachem Damti, 5-Agent S.N. (Possibly S.G.), 6-Bodyguard Yoram Rubin

We tend to agree with this sentiment about Rav Shachter's endorsement of assassination of a prime minister from the Tikkun Olam Blog....
How do you say something documented on YouTube (though unfortunately subsequently removed by the YU student who uploaded it) and then say you didn't mean it? Was there some sort of mind control at work that forced him to say something he didn't believe? Was he brainwashed a la George Romney in 1968? The fact that this rabbi gets little more than a public slap on the wrist says something about the sorry moral state of the Orthodox movement and about the strain of political extremism that runs rampant within it. Furthermore, incitement like this only makes it all the harder for an Israeli prime minister who actually will have to advocate sharing Jerusalem with its Palestinian inhabitants. How can such a position ever have any legitimacy if rabbinic leaders poison the well as this one has?

He should not have apologised!
These so called democratically elected leaders of the Jewish people you so revere should not be allowed to go on screwing the people who elected them.
They have no right to give weapons, money , electricity and the parts of holy land of Israel to our enemies.
Past Shabbos the rabbi of every shule should have given a drosha about the topic of the haftorah (reading fromthe prophets) that clearly reminds us that a political asasination of wicked "Jewish leaders" and a regime change in the land of Israel can be a very positive thing if done right !
PS. Since the dirty traitors have wasted money on buying arms for terrorists therre is no money in the treasury of the state of Israel
to buy gallows to hang them thus the head of the Israeli supreme court has asked me (of the record) to do the following fund-raiser in honor of the upcoming holiday of Purim explained in the link bellow:

since barring this they unfortunatly cannot implement the excelent suggestion of Rabbi Wolpo:-)

He should not be afraid of me listening to him, just quoting him...:-)
PS. Speaking of the subject of the picture in this post perhaps you should also include this:
