Video: Israeli rightwing parliamentarian calls for ‘erasing’ Gaza because no one there is innocent

Israel/Palestine

The video above is said by the person who posted it to have been shot on Nov. 15 by Omer Manor in Tel Aviv, at a counter-demonstration to a demonstration against the Gaza assault. It features Michael Ben-Ari, a rightwing member of the Knesset, saying that Israel ought to “erase” Gaza. And on the fascistic front, the demonstrators call for leftists in the other demo to get cancer, or to be sent to Gaza.

Our friend Dena Shunra says the translation is accurate: “The statements are translated correctly. And they’re calling for 2000 deaths for every 15 flights of an Israeli war-plane – while noting that there have been hundreds of flights. They’re calling for genocide, as usual – nothing new about that. They motivate it on “am yisrael chai,” [the people of Israeli live] a sentiment which (for them) implies  fighting to the death against all Palestinians.”

And here is Ariel Sharon’s son Gilad Sharon, writing in the Jerusalem Post:

We need to flatten entire neighborhoods in Gaza. Flatten all of Gaza. The Americans didn’t stop with Hiroshima – the Japanese weren’t surrendering fast enough, so they hit Nagasaki, too.
