Guess what quote Bar Yochai was the originator of?

"Some of his views were seemingly very hostile towards gentiles. The Jewish Encyclopedia of 1906 describes him as the preeminent anti-gentile teacher.[79] Rabbi Shimon bar Yochai is often quoted by antisemites in his saying "Best of gentiles kill him, best of snakes cut its head, the most pious of women is prone to sorcery."[80]"
