The Israel Hayom newspaper refused to publish an ad condemning the Torat Hamelech (The King’s Torah) book and citing excerpts from it, Army Radio reported Sunday morning.

Torat Hamelech, by the rabbi of the Yitzhar settlement, Yitzhak Shapira, gives Jews permission to preemptively kill gentiles under certain conditions in wartime.

Gadi Gavriyahu, the coordinator who has tried to spread the ads, told Army Radio that other newspapers including Ha'aretz and Makor Rishon agreed to publish the ad.

Representatives from Israel Hayom refused to comment on the report.
