The Israeli Minister of Heritage saidAmichai EliyahuIsrael must “find ways more painful than death” for the Palestinians in order to resolve the battle, defeat them, and break their morale, as the United States did with Japan.
Eliyahu said, in statements to Israeli Radio 103 FM, that Israel must resolve the battle by breaking the morale of the Palestinians in Gaza and causing them pain, such as the land, destroying the home, and breaking their national dream and voluntary immigration. When the broadcaster interrupted him, saying that this is not possible, Eliyahu replied that this is the case. Possible, as happened during the Arab Spring when large numbers of the region’s population immigrated to Germany.
According to the Israeli minister’s statements, the residents of Gaza must be encouraged to immigrate to other countries as part of measures to take revenge on them after the events of last October 7, in reference to OperationAl-Aqsa flood.
Eliyahu widely criticized Defense Minister Yoav Galant for the plan he developed for the post-war period, where civil affairs in the Gaza Strip would be handled by Palestinian parties that were not hostile to Israel, and he commented by saying that there was no group with those specifications.
Last November, the Israeli minister called for bombing Gaza with a nuclear bomb and wiping it off the face of the earth.
Eliyahu belongs to the far-right Jewish Power party, led by the Minister of National Security Itamar Ben GvirIt is a party that supports building settlements and regaining control of the Gaza Strip, and adopts extremist ideas.
Eliyahu's new statement comes amid Israeli calls to displace the residents of the Gaza Strip and resettle them in other countries.
