The BBC reports:
Israeli leaders are warning of an imminent conflagration in Gaza after Palestinian militants aimed rockets at the southern city of Ashkelon.The use of the word "holocaust" by an Israeli minister, in this context, is completely extraordinary, and will make every idiot who suggests Israel conducts a policy of "genocide" towards Palestinians feel vindicated.
The deputy defence minister said the stepped-up rocket fire would trigger what he called a "bigger holocaust" in the Hamas-controlled coastal strip.
It's a grotesque incident. If this is true, the minister should be sacked immediately.
