Rabbi Yosef: Treating gentiles violates Sabbath

Shas’ leader says religious physicians cannot violate Sabbath in order to save gentiles’ lives, but offers halachic solution to avoid legal repercussions


What should religious doctors do if a gentile is injured in a car accident on Shabbat and is rushed to the hospital? According to Rabbi Ovadia Yosef, this does not warrant violating the sanctity of the Sabbath.

During a class on Sabbath halacha relating to religious physicians, the spiritual leader of Shas said that while doctors are expected to do everything in their power – even if it requires violating the Sabbath – in order to save Jews whose lives are in danger, the same does not apply for gentiles.

“If a gentile were to get injured in a car accident during Sabbath, and he is brought to the hospital – Israel must not treat him,” he said, explaining that “if the particular procedures come from rabbis (de-rabbanan), then they might be permitted, but if they stem from prohibitions in the Torah (de-‘oraita), then they are not allowed, as the Torah forbids to violate the Sabbath for gentiles.”

Rabbi Yosef expounded on the problem, saying that the Mishnah Berurah explicitly says that “all religious physicians who treat gentiles on the Sabbath or violating the Sabbath; however, in reality the patients are brought to the hospital and must be treated. The doctors’ license says they must treat all patients without distinction of faith or race, and if they don’t, the State could revoke their license and also punish them. So what should the poor doctors do?”

The rabbi offered a halachic solution that follows a rule by which if a single person is doing the act, he is violating the Sabbath, while if two people are doing it together, they are exempt.

“The doctor who needs to operate will call on another doctor, or nurse, to hold the scalpel together and make the incision,” said Rabbi Yosef, saying that “it is necessary in order for religious physicians to refrain from being put on trial for distinguishing between a Jew and a gentile on Sabbath.”

    This is one hellish religeon..
    Would a non Jewish doctor then, be justified, in not treating a Jew on their sabbath?

    The gentiles have only themselves to blame for enabling such a b*st*rd to voice his racist views openly without fear of retribution.

    The best solution is to avoid all JEW doctors. Hit
    em where it hurts.

    Disgusting but typical of this man. Odd religion indeed. Read “judaism dicovered” by michael hoffman for a very good understanding of the mindset of those who practice . Understanding the teachings explain the obviously flawed superior mentality. Fake judeo christianity is little different and really an infilteration into traditional christian doctrine by the same which explains the unchristian/unbiblical zionist behavior. The christian church is being destroyed from within itself.

    Boycott is right. Or more rightly, zionistcott! Israelicott. Do it for the interest bigger than you. Become a part of this second stage of warfare, where the victims have been thru the motions of anger and whining; and moved into action! No more helpless victims of the dominating dominatrix rabbanical vulturism.

    “The rabbi offered a halachic solution that follows a rule by which if a single person is doing the act, he is violating the Sabbath, while if two people are doing it together, they are exempt.”

    This makes no sense whatsoever. The Mishnah is the “oral tradition” which Christ spoke against.

    And He (Christ) said to them (the Pharisees), “All too well you reject the commandment of God, that you may keep your tradition.”

    Don’t go to jewish doctors or dentists!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    No Amerikagulag, the best defense is
    to have nothing to do with the filth at
    all. Take their liscences and send them
    back to the shi$hole they came from. I
    will get along just fine with no yid MDs
    in the country.

    Ask him about the ladder.

    That vadermf personally puts the smear on millions of brown Jews.

    Israel’s “claim” to Palestine is based entirely on War Crimes and GENOCIDE.
    It is UNFAIR and WRONG to compare Israel to the Nazis.
    The CORRECT comparison is Nazis to Israelis:
    The Nazis copied the Jewish “Manual” point by point
    Numbers c.5 v.2-4
    Leviticus c.20 v.13 well, really the whole chapter
    Exodus c.32 v.27
    Numbers c.11 v.1-2
    Numbers c.16 all
    Numbers c.21 v.5-6
    Numbers v.26 v.10
    KILL anyone who engages in “DIVERSITY” or “INTEGRATION”
    Numbers v25 v.4-8
    Deuteronomy c.14 v.2
    Numbers c.21 v.03 Canaanites
    Numbers c.21 v.24 Amorites
    Numbers c.21 v.33-35 Bashan
    Numbers c.31 all Midianites
    Numbers c.32 v. more Amorites
    Deuteronomy c.2 v.34 People of Heshbon
    Deuteronomy c.3 v.6 really the whole chapter. threescore cities
    Joshua c.12 A list of victims of Israeli GENOCIDE
    Where are THEIR “holocaust” Memorials!
    Numbers c.21 v.25
    Numbers c.32 v.39
    Numbers c.33 v.53
    (just to name a FEW)
    Numbers c.33 v.31-34
    Deuteronomy c.7 v.2
    Deuteronomy c.12 v.28-30
    Deuteronomy c.20 v.11-16
    Deuteronomy c.2 v.2
    Deuteronomy c.7 v.1
    Jews SELF-anointed “The CHOSEN People of GOD”
    Nazis SELF-anointed “The GENETICALLY CHOSEN People of God”.
    And even TODAY:
    April 10, 2008 “All of the Palestinians must be killed; men, women, infants, and even their beasts.” This was the religious opinion issued one week ago by Rabbi Yisrael Rosen, director of the Tsomet Institute, a long-established religious institute attended by students and soldiers in the Israeli settlements of the West Bank.

    This rabbi is an asshole pure and simple!!! Humanity comes before any religious difference and eff any religion that says otherwise..

  14. #14 by Ponders70 on 05/17/2012 - 9:34

    Somebody should violate that disgusting
    man playing at being holy. I would
    stand and cheer for that. Perhaps even
    a wee jig too.

    Rabbi Ovadia Yosef looks like Emperor Palpatine.

  16. #16 by ruby22-kate on 05/17/2012 - 9:34

    from what I read about Judaism, it isn’t a religion, it is more a guide to con the world.
    A rabbi, supposedly serving religion, says all Palestinians should be genocided. How is that different from Germany’s Judenfree(sic) policy? The only difference I see is that the Germans were more humane & moral compared to the zionist Israelis.

    It’s a shame the whore press never asked Mr. Farakhan WHY he called Judaism a “gutter” religion.
    Seems clear that driving a wooden stake through the top of the head won’t kill this parasite. Needs to be through the wallet, maybe.

  18. #18 by Touchedthesky on 05/17/2012 - 9:34

    Literally a hellish and evil cult of darkness.

    Don’t blame the messenger, he is just teaching synagogue, just teaching the children and adutls how to apply jewish law and religion and politics. He is to the jews what a pastor or preacher or priest is to christians.

    It’s already happening in Scotland. Well kinda sort of but it doesn’t deal with the medical aspect. What happened in Scotland yesterday is only a sample of things to come. Apparently 5 men and a teenager were arrested for making “anti-Semitic” remarks on Facebook. They had 50 police raid their homes for saying something bad about the jews. What’s next? Will they make a law where criticizing jews is punishable by death? Thanks a lot Oliver Cromwell. You just handed the UK into slavery.

    Facebook like Google is a jewish entity. They will tell you, that is what to expect after all. You are a fool to continue with the jewbook. Also you contribute every time you tell others to google this or that. It is like tv, which is talmud vision. You expect something different? You expect something different when you go to a jewish doctor that is taught to insist that every boy is mutilated at the critical age of 8 days old because his parents are most vulnerable then? And then when and when not to treat you? You know or you should by now be wellaware1.com Either accept it or refuse it.

    Answer to #19 of don’t blame the messenger. You really sound stupid. Then don’t blame the Germans for what the preacher Hitler said.

    Our preachers do not say it is O.K to rip off non christians, our preacher does not say it is O.K to kill non- christians, they teach kindness, help, peace. Not hate of non christians. BUT it is O. K. to misinterpret the Torah in this filthy fashion?To skew the religion to a machine of intolerance and hate? R-U-Stuuuuuupid? I already know the answer. Oy Vey!
