Netanyahu on TV: “I found the book Mein Kampf in Arabic in Gaza. This is how children are taught.”
Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu shows on television an Arabic version of Adolf Hitler's book 'Mein Kampf' found in Gaza: This is how 'neo-Nazis' teach their children, the Times of Israel reports.
He said: “We will never forgive what Hamas did to our children,” and added: “There is no alternative to complete victory.” On October 7, “If they could, they would slaughter us all.” If we do not destroy Hamas, “the next massacre will be just a matter of time.”
Netanyahu described South Africa's request from the International Court of Justice in The Hague to try Israel for genocide as “outrageous.” The fact that the court approved the ruling “proves that many in the world have not learned the lessons of the Holocaust.” “The main lesson we learned is that we will defend ourselves,” he stressed.
Netanyahu then accused the hostage families of “reinforcing Hamas' demands” with demonstrations in support of the release of their loved ones. “I understand that you cannot control your emotions, but this does not help, and from what I see this only strengthens Hamas’ demands,” the Israeli Prime Minister said again this evening in a press conference, referring to the Hamas protests.

Netanyahu should think about “fixing the mistakes” of October 7, instead of “reprimanding the families of the victims,” the Hostage Families Forum responded to Netanyahu regarding the demonstrations.
