“Israel won’t be secure so long as Hamas is in power, and therefore we need to come to a decision that we will break the will of Hamas to keep fighting … We must continue to fight Hamas just like the United States did with the Japanese in World War II … Then, too, the conquering of the country was unnecessary.”

[Leader of the “Israel is Our Home” (Israel Beiteinu) party and former Strategic Affairs Minister Avigdor Lieberman, 13 January 2009]

from the archives:

“The more Qassam (rocket) fire intensifies and the rockets reach a longer range, they (the Palestinians) will bring upon themselves a bigger holocaust [“shoah”] because we will use all our might to defend ourselves,”

[Israeli Deputy Defence Minister Matan Vilnai, 28 February 2008]
