Chief Ashkenazi Rabbi Metzger told The Jerusalem Post that it was important to encourage fertility and discourage abortions, in part, to fight a demographic war. "I am sorry to say that our enemies are multiplying ... Rabbis have a role in encouraging their communities to have children and to discourage abortions. It is the best weapon against our enemies," Metzger said. ("Rabbis: Abortion will delay the redemption," Jerusalem Post, Matthew Wagner, Dec 29, 2009)
This story was repackaged for "righteous Gentile" consumption--with the above quoted key to understanding the essence of the matter wiped from the record--and distributed to Judeo-Churchgoer outfits, for example, HERE, and HERE.
The poor souls who read the "righteous Gentile" version of the story will likely come away believing that the rabbis are against abortion, which is false (see Judaism Discovered pp. 878-885), and that the rabbis champion the rights of all unborn babies, whether they be of Israeli or, say, Palestinian parentage, which is delusional.
This is a case of rabbinic situation ethics. The rabbis are faced with the stark reality that Israeli death-culture produces far fewer children than Palestinian culture (which we are supposed to believe is the death culture). The Palestinian birth rate is greatly outpacing the Israeli birth rate in "the only Democracy in the Middle East." Once there is a Palestinian majority in the Zionist state, even the pretense of Democracy will be disposed of. There is no chance of true democratic representation for Palestinians in "The 'Jewish' State." So, given the Israeli demographics reality, the rabbis, who in 'the diaspora' are at-the-ready with their halakhic loopholes for abortion, suddenly must rule against abortion--Judaic abortion, that is. There is no principle that the rabbis won't circumvented when "the times require it" HERE, and HERE. Such is the fluid nature of rabbinic Judaism.
The reality of how "enemy" babies are regarded in the Israeli state:
Dead Palestinian babies and bombed mosques - IDF fashion 2009
Israeli government funding rabbi whose book endorses killing babies
There is nothing pro-life about the rabbis of Counterfeit Israel.
