The least bad thing I can say about that passage is that such things only happen when G-d specifically commands them rather than as a general rule, and G-d hasn't been talking for a long time.

On the other hand, it does put worshiping such a G-d in a very bad light.

Additionally, a Chasidic Jew I used to know said that the Holocaust was G-d's response to secular Jews, and I stopped speaking to her. (It wasn't a close relationship.)

It occurred to me to check before I posted, and I found this. It is a typical belief, apparently.

It doesn't just "freeze the heart" to think that Jews deserved the Holocaust. What about all the non-Jews who were killed as collateral damage? This is demon worship.

And I mentioned it to a philo-Semitic friend (philo-Semitic in the good sense-- she cooks food up to orthodox standards for visiting friends), and she said that demon-worship is a sign of practicality.
