Isaac Herzog reports discovery of ‘Mein Kampf’ in children’s bedroom in north Gaza

Israeli President Herzog revealed in an interview with the BBC that Israeli troops found an Arabic translation of Hitler’s Mein Kampf on the body of a terrorist in a children’s living room in a private home in northern Gaza, which had been turned into a military base. The book’s discovery, widely distributed in the Arab world, recalls Hitler’s pledge to the grand mufti of Jerusalem, who met with the Nazi leader in Berlin in 1941 and was assured that the “struggle against a Jewish homeland in Palestine” would be part of the struggle against the Jews until “the complete destruction of the Jewish-Communist European empire.” The soldiers also found evidence of Hamas launching terror operations in the heart of Gaza’s civilian population, including laboratories for manufacturing explosives. Inside the copy of Mein Kampf were margin notes, highlighted sections, and annotated Post-it notes. Herzog emphasized the significance of the book, stating “This is the book that led to the Holocaust and to World War Two.” He also addressed claims of civilian casualties, denying that Israel had targeted civilian facilities and asserting that Hamas was operating military headquarters under Shifa Hospital.
