Israeli Minister Warns Palestinians Of ' Holocaust'

ATFP sends this item in which Reuters reports on the comments made by the Israeli Deputy Defense minister about a “bigger Holocaust” being visited upon Gaza by Israel due to the increased rocket attacks - Such an idiotic thing to say though. "Holocaust!". It is as if he likes the idea of the Palestinians calling the Jewish people "Nazis". Is the man utterly inept?

Deputy Israeli Defense Minister Matan Vilnai said on Friday the Palestinians would bring on themselves what he called a "bigger holocaust" by stepping up rocket attacks on Israel from the Gaza Strip. "Holocaust" is a term rarely used in Israel outside discussions of the Nazi genocide during World War Two. Many Israelis are loathe to countenance using the word to describe other contemporary events.
