Arabs Are Subhuman, Hasidic Rebbe Says

The Vishnitzer Rebbe visited the families of the haredi victims of Tuesday’s terror attack in a haredi synagogue in Har Nof, Jerusalem. He spoke with local haredi leaders who described the gruesome attack in detail.
Then, on Shabbat during seudat shlishit (the third meal) the rebbe suddenly announced that “Ishmaelites are not bnei adam [literally, children of Adam, the first human being; i.e., Arabs are subhuman] because they are cruel by nature,” Yeshiva World reported.
God will avenge the spilled blood of the victims of the Har Nof terror attack, the rebbe said, but the haredi community must strengthen its Torah study and the increase the holiness of its speech [i.e., not speak lashon hara and gossip].
One of the victims of the attack was a Druze police officer who was killed by the terrorists as he was rescuing a haredi woman.
The Druze, who are Muslim Arabs – and therefore Ishmaelites in the rebbe’s parlance – serve in the IDF and in the police force.
