Was Rabbi Avi Ronzki spreading hate?


I’ve been at a loss for words on the fighting in Gaza but this article in today’s news claims that Rabbi Avi Ronzki was spreading hateful leaflets to entice our soldiers to commit war crimes against civilians. I don’t exactly find these statements so hateful.

http://www.independent.co.uk/news/world/middle-east/army-rabbi-gave-out-hate-leaflet-to-troops-1516805.html

”The Israeli army’s chief rabbinate gave soldiers preparing to enter the Gaza Strip a booklet implying that all Palestinians are their mortal enemies and advising them that cruelty is sometimes a ”good attribute”.

—-

In another, the army rabbinate appears to be encouraging soldiers to disregard the international laws of war aimed at protecting civilians, according to Breaking the Silence, the group of Israeli ex-soldiers who disclosed its existence. The booklet cites the renowned medieval Jewish sage Maimonides as saying that ”one must not be enticed by the folly of the Gentiles who have mercy for the cruel”.”

Any one else have a clue on how to handle this one?
