Gilu'i Da'ath: Neqamah?

Mossa'ei Shabbath Qodesh Parshath Wayiqra/Zakhor 5768

Most of you have heard or have seen the gilu'i da'ath (opinion statement) poster signed by the following rabbis calling for Neqamah (revenge) for the murder of the eight students at the Merkaz HaRav Yeshivah. Or did they?

Rabbi Yitzhaq Ginzberg
Rosh Yeshivath "Od Yosef Hai"

Rabbi Yaakov Yosef
Rabbi, Givath Moshe community

Rabbi Daniel Stavsky

Rabbi Yitzchak Shapira
Yeshivath "Od Yosef Hai"

Rabbi David Drukman
Habba"d, HaQrayoth

Rabbi Ido Alba
Rosh Kollel Ma'arath HaMakhpellah

Rabbi Gadi Ben-Zimra
Rosh Ulpanath Levonah

Rabbi Shmuel Yaniv

Rabbi Uzi Sharbaf

Rabbi Yigal Shendorfi

Rabbi Yehuda Kroizer
Rosh Yeshivath Ra'ayon HeYehudi
(Rabbi Kahane's HY"D Yehshivah)

I finally found an extra poster laing around, and was going to translate it tonight. But Comic X in Jerusalem has beaten me to it. You can see his English translation of the poster at "Here Is What Ynet News Won't Show You." His post also includes a photo of the original Hebrew poster for those of you who would prefer to read that.

Either way, see for yourselves what these rabbis have signed their names to. In my humble opinion, they were very careful with their words.
