A Nov. 5 article titled “Israel Minister Suspended after Calling Nuking Gaza an Option” in Politico reported that “Israel’s Heritage Minister Amichai Eliyahu was suspended indefinitely after he said in an interview that dropping a nuclear bomb on the Gaza Strip was ‘one of the possibilities,’ the government announced on Sunday,” Nov. 5.
It would be supremely irresponsible to not take this threat seriously. Already, between 25,000 and 30,000 tons of bombs have been detonated by the Israeli Defense Forces in Gaza since Oct. 7. This far exceeds the bomb tonnage dropped in the most lethal air raids of the Second World War, including Hamburg (4 raids, 9,000 tons); Dresden (4 raids, 3,900 tons); and Tokyo (1,665 tons.) War crimes are afoot.
Türkiye’s Anadolu Agency reported Oct. 12 that “The Israeli Air Force (IAF) said … that it has dropped ‘about 6,000 bombs against Hamas targets’ in Gaza since Saturday’s attack, which nearly matches the number of bombs the US used in Afghanistan in one year. The Washington Post, citing Marc Garlasco, a military adviser at the Dutch organization PAX for Peace, reported that Israel is ‘dropping in less than a week what the US was dropping in Afghanistan in a year, in a much smaller, much more densely populated area, where mistakes are going to be magnified.’” War crimes are afoot.
