The Israel Religious Action Center petitioned the High Court of Justice Monday to compel the attorney-general and the Minister of Justice to file an incitement case against the publishers and the authors of the book “Torat Hamelech.”

The book deals with what the authors dub the laws of killing non-Jews. The two authors, Rabbi Yitzhak Shapira and Rabbi Yossi Elitzur are well-known and influential in more radical religious-Zionist circles.

The book has caused tremendous controversy since its publication in 2009, particularly due to its endorsement of killing non-combatants under certain circumstances.
