Sephardic Chief Rabbi Yitzhak Yosef, said Thursday that people should avoid looking at photos and videos of injured or dead terror victims.

There have been numerous murders recently, he began, "by those accursed murderers from the sons of Ishmael, may their names be blotted out."

There are some people who "do not act decently and who take and publish photos of the wounded and murdered, and sometimes even videotape a dying man or one who has died."

The rabbi said that the "spirit of the wise men" rejects this behavior, and it should be denounced. It causes the families great pain, he explained, and it also "violates the dignity of the dead person, and the dignity of all people."

"It is obvious that by way of Torah and morality, they must not be published, and one should avoid watching photos like it," the rabbi pronounced.
