Israel threatens to unleash ‘holocaust’ in Gaza

An Israeli minister gave warning today that the Gaza faces a “holocaust” if Islamist militants there do not end their daily barrages of home-made Qassam rockets, and their increasing use of Iranian-built Grad missiles.

The use of the term “holocaust” is usually restricted to descriptions of the Nazi genocide of the Jews in Europe in the Second World War, and many Israelis resent its use in any other context.

    I would like to see N.America and Europe come down upon Israel with both feet.Stop the genocide once and for all.Israel is doing everything it can to prevent a State of Palestine from ever coming to be.
    What Israel is doing with it’s massive war machine is tantamount to a modern day war machine going back in time to the caveman era and wiping out an entire population.It is disgusting the world stands by while women and children and the elderly suffer such brutality and smile upon the Israelis.
