Member of Israel’s Knesset Calls for the Internment of Palestinians in Concentration Camps

MK Moti Yogev

Far-right, former IDF colonel, racist MK Moti Yogev wants family members of Palestinians accused of attacking Jews (true or false) placed in internment camps.

Will death camp recommendations follow? He claims punishing families will deter their children from allegedly harming Jews.

“There are (various) means of deterrence, such as banishing families of murderers to the Judean Desert – something that’s possible by law – and the creation of a type of Holot (internment camp) run by the military police,” he blustered.

It would be understood by every son that he doesn’t want this to happen to his father, mother, sisters and brothers. I have no doubt that this could be a very big deterrent.

Yogev is one of many lunatic fringe Israeli politicians, racist Arab haters. During earlier Israeli instigated Al-Aqsa Mosque violence, he was filmed screaming at a Palestinian woman, telling her to “go to the grave. You will not pass here, only Jews!”

He vowed Israel will “deal with the terror (sic) with an iron fist.” He’s a vocal advocate of unlimited settlement construction.

Following Israel’s High Court ruling upholding the demolition of two illegally built settler West Bank buildings, he railed against the decision, saying “(w)e have to take the (oversized) blade of a (Caterpillar) D9 (bulldozer used for illegal Palestinian home demolitions) to the High Court of Justice” building.

We as a legislative system (must) rein in judicial rule (to show) the Knesset and government…rule(s) in Israel (and) the judiciary will know its place.

Numerous other Israeli officials match Yogev’s extremism. Ultranationalist education minister Naftali Bennett approves of settlers shooting Palestinians, saying “(a)gainst the cowardly Arab terrorism, a wave of Jewish courage is rising to defeat it.”

Bennett once notoriously bragged about “kill(ing) lots of Arabs in my life. There’s no problem with that,” he said. Justice minister Ayelet Shaked openly endorsed genocide in June 2014, calling “the entire Palestinian people (Israel’s) enemy.” She demanded Palestinian mothers be massacred to prevent them from giving birth to “little snakes.”

She encouraged settlers to “eliminate the enemy.” Deputy defense minister, settler rabbi Eli Ben-Dahan called Palestinians “beasts. They are not human,” he railed.

Deputy foreign minister Tzipi Hotovely says all parts of historic Palestine belong to Israel. “This land is ours” exclusively. “All of it is ours.”

MK Yinon Magal says it’s “important to make an effort so that terrorists (sic) who carry out (alleged) attacks are not left alive.” Netanyahu openly urges “a fight to the death against Palestinian terror” – defined as anyone openly resisting Israeli ruthlessness.

Israel’s Muslim hating culture of violence is capable of most anything. Defense Minister Ya’alon wants Gaza turned into an island, isolated, besieged and surrounded on all sides by water.

His scheme involves digging a deep trench along the Israeli/Gaza border, filling it with seawater, preventing nonexistent infiltration into Israel.

Around 150 heavy duty bulldozers are involved in the project, Israel’s “groove to be connected to the Egyptian” one when completed, encircling Gaza on all sides by water, destroying choice Palestinian farmland in the process.
