License to kill

Israeli rabbi Yitzhak Shapiro, verbalizing the wet dreams of religious fanatics the world over, provides a license to kill the other if you feel threatened by them - or someone like them - or if you might possibly feel threatened by them some time in the future. Here is the reverend in his own words: (h/t Mondoweiss)
"It is permissable to kill the Righteous among Nations even if they are not responsible for the threatening situation,"
But it is all for the good
"If we kill a Gentile who has sinned or has violated one of the seven commandments - because we care about the commandments - there is nothing wrong with the murder."
The good rabbi provides guidelines for who all to kill including
the slaying of "non-Jews who demand the land for themselves," and for, among other transgressions, "hostile blasphemy." Also "Those who, by speech, weaken our sovereignty" .... Even babies and children are fair targets, "if it is clear they will grow up to harm us".
