Why don't Israelis sterilize all Palestinians?
This is probably a Troll question.Â
Â The rationale is that the Troll wants others to consider the Israelis to be in the same category as Nazis.Â
Â Just as Nazis went around sterilizing people they did not like so must the Zionist be liable to.
Â The analogy however is not applicable.
Â Israeli Jews are humane and kind people and do not do such things.
Â Even in cases where a bit of ruthlessness is what is needed they usually lack it.
Â The Israelis are not going to sterilize anyone. They are not going to hurt anyone unless it is an immediate case of case-defence.
Apart from that, sterilization of anyone (Jew or Gentile) is forbidden by the Torah.
Leveticus 22 (NASB) 22;
Â 24 Also anything with its testicles bruised or crushed or torn or cut, you shall not offer to the LORD, or sacrifice in your land.
The New Living Translation in this case renders the text in this case more accurately.
Leviticus 22 (NLT): 24
Â You must not offer to the LORD an animal whose testicles are bruised, crushed, torn or cut. You must not do this in your own land.
The Sages explained this to remain that sterilizing anybody (Jew, Gentile, or Animal) was forbidden..
