‘Burn Gaza now’ – top Israeli MP


A senior lawmaker in Israel has urged the military to “burn” Gaza and not allow any fuel into the Palestinian enclave unless all hostages held by Hamas are released.

The comments made on Friday by Nissim Vaturi, deputy speaker of the Knesset, are the latest in a string of incendiary remarks by Israeli politicians on the deadly fighting with Hamas.

“All of this preoccupation with whether or not there is internet in Gaza shows that we have learned nothing. We are too humane,” Vaturi, a member of Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu’s Likud party, wrote on X (formerly Twitter).

“Burn Gaza now, nothing less! Don’t allow fuel in, don’t allow water in until the hostages are returned!” 

Earlier this month, Netanyahu suspended Heritage Minister Amihai Eliyahu from cabinet meetings after he suggested using nuclear weapons against the Palestinian enclave.

“Well Mr. Musk have you deplatformed this Israeli politician yet? How many Israeli leaders or politicians have you de-platformed during this most recent conflict? Daily calls for genocide against the Palestinian people by many Israeli leaders. You recently stated you would de-platform those calling for genocide. How many have you done so, what are the names. This effen cretin is part and parcel of that murderous Israeli/Zionist mindset.”
