Rabbi Yitzhak Shapira who wrote the controversial Torat Hamelech said a new book he is planning to release will claim, based on Halacha, that employment of Arabs is dangerous to Israel, Army Radio reported Monday.

Last week, Shapira told the Hakol Hayehudi website that a third edition of Torat Hamelech was on its way out due to popular demand.

Torat Hamelech gives Jews permission to preemptively kill gentiles, including babies, in wartime, under certain conditions.

Shapira said he planned to publish more similar tractates, “which would show how the Rules of the King should dictate our actions, such as how to deal with the problems we have in Gaza and elsewhere."
