A senior Israeli politician provoked controversy today when he warned that Palestinians firing rockets from Gaza would be punished with a "bigger holocaust" from Israeli armed forces.
Now this is an article from 2008, but I think its relevant even 4 years later. It gives us some insight into the minds of the izraeli leadership.
The OP made the Date clear in his first written sentence.

I would think that the responsible thing to do would be to edit the title to reflect that this asinine quote by this idiot politician was made in 2008.

It is an old article. But old or not those are indefensible words.
I am a proponent of Israeli self defense and I stand with Israel against Muslim extremists who wish to kill all the Jews and destroy Israel. But I do not stand with anyone who advocates the total destruction of a people in response to terrorist activities.
Politicians like that should be fired.
