Days of Palestine – Ramallah
An Israeli occupier lawmaker came under fire on Tuesday for saying that if he could push a button to make all Palestinians disappear, he would.
Deputy Religious Services of the Israeli occupation Minister Matan Kahana made the remarks to high school students in a West Bank settlement.
“If there was a sort of button you could push that would make all the Arabs disappear, send them on an express train to Switzerland,” he said, “I would press that button.”
Kahana is a part of Prime Minister Naftali Bennett’s extremest Yamina party which anchors a coalition of eight parties.
The threat of forcible displacement is a sensitive subject for Palestinians, who were forced to flee their homes after the establishment of the Isreali occupation over the year of the Nakba . A second uprooting occurred during the 1967 Mideast war.
