President Isaac Herzog reveals that an annotated copy of Adolf Hitler’s “Mein Kampf” was found in a children’s room that was used as a base by terrorists in the northern Gaza Strip.
Herzog holds up a copy of the Arabic translation of the Nazi leader’s book during an interview with the BBC.
“This is Adolf Hitler’s book, ‘Mein Kampf,’ translated into Arabic,” Herzog tells the BBC, according to a statement from the President’s Residence. “This is the book that led to the Holocaust and the book that led to World War II.”
The President’s Residence says the book was found in a residential building, among the personal belongings of a terrorist, and had been annotated.
“The terrorist wrote notes, marked the sections, and studied again and again, Adolf Hitler’s ideology to hate the Jews, to kill the Jews, to burn and slaughter Jews wherever they are. This is the real war we are facing,” Herzog says.
“After the massacre and atrocities committed by Hamas terrorists on October 7 — the day on which the largest number of Jews were murdered since the Holocaust — this is another revelation that testifies to the sources of inspiration of the terrorist organization Hamas, and proves once again that all its actions have the same goal as the Nazis — the destruction of Jews,” the President’s Residence says in a statement.
