Settler rabbi arrested for controversial book



JERUSALEM (JTA) -- A leading rabbi of the settler movement was arrested for writing a book that says Jewish law allows the killing of non-Jews.

Rabbi Yitzhak Shapira of the Yitzhar settlement was arrested Monday on suspicion of incitement for his book "The King's Torah," which was published last year and garnered headlines then for its controversial content. Police also confiscated 35 copies of the book found in his home. The book is sold in bookstores.
