Torat HaMelech 9: Those Brits Crack Me Up!

As the British are suffering an epidemic of rioting and looting, their security officials have spare time for other activities:
British security officials banned Rabbi Yosef Elitzur from entering the country over opinions expressed in the book Torat HaMelekh (Law of the King), which he co-wrote with Rabbi Yitzhak Shapira.
The book, which has generated significant controversy in Israel, is an academic treastie on Jewish Law as it pertains to warfare. In it Elitzur expressed the opinion that the lives of Jewish soldiers should be placed ahead of enemy, non-Jewish civilians in battle.

Elitzur received a letter stating he may not enter the United Kingdom for the next three years under British law. By law in the UK, someone who supports terrorism with justifying opinions, encourages an act of terrorism, or spreads hatred may not enter the country.
That'll quell those rioters! Good show!

This sounds like the beginning of a bad joke:

What do Michael Savage, Moshe Feiglin, Samir Kuntar, Geert Wilders, and the author of Torat Hamelech have in common?

Oh, and you can add Obama's half-brother in there too!
