Israeli politician, May Golan, once again disregards Palestinian life by rejoicing in the “ruins of Gaza”. 

Israel’s Minister for the Advancement of Women, May Golan, has yet again displayed disregard for Palestinian life by expressing pride in the “ruins” of the besieged Gaza Strip, adding that every Palestinian baby will in future, “tell their grandchildren what the Jews did.”

“I am personally proud of the ruins of Gaza,” Golan said in a speech in the Israeli parliament (Knesset) on Wednesday. 

“And that every baby, even 80 years from now, will tell their grandchildren what the Jews did…,” she added. 

Addressing far-left politician Oser Cassif, Golan said, “You can keep dreaming that we will end the war without victory.”

She went on to say, “We are not ashamed to say that we want to see the Israeli soldiers, the holy heroes of ours, catching (Yahya) Sinwar and his terrorists by their ears, and dragging them all across the Gaza Strip, on their way to the dungeons of the Prison Authority …Or in the best scenario, to a coffin.” 

Denouncing the idea of a Palestinian state, Golan said “Not a dove and not an olive branch, only a sword to cut off Sinwar’s head, that’s what he will receive from us.” 

‘I Don’t Care About Gaza’

In December, Golan made the headlines for saying she would like to see “dead bodies of terrorists around Gaza.”

“…I don’t care about Gaza, I literally don’t care. For all I care, they can go out and just swim in the sea,” Golan said in an interview with an Israeli TV channel.

“I care about only three things; The first thing is I care about our soldiers, our dear, precious soldiers that danger their lives every day for the state of Israel,” the politician continued.

“I care about the one thing that will have to be and this is killing and destroying Hamas from the face of the earth.”

Golan, 37, is a Likud Party member known for inflammatory statements she made about African refugees in Israel.

Calling the refugees “Muslim infiltrators,” she reportedly said many have Aids, and demanded they be expelled from the country. 

Her nomination by Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu as a consul-general to New York early last year was “denounced by Israeli and American former diplomats, as an affront to the US and damaging for Israel,” according to a report in the Guardian.

Increasing Death Toll

According to Gaza’s Ministry of Health, 29,410 Palestinians have been killed, and 69,465 wounded in Israel’s ongoing genocide in Gaza starting on October 7. 

Moreover, at least 7,000 people are unaccounted for, presumed dead under the rubble of their homes throughout the Strip. 

Palestinian and international organizations say that the majority of those killed and wounded are women and children.

The Israeli aggression has also resulted in the forceful displacement of nearly two million people from all over the Gaza Strip, with the vast majority of the displaced forced into the densely crowded southern city of Rafah near the border with Egypt – in what has become Palestine’s largest mass exodus since the 1948 Nakba.

Israel says that 1,200 soldiers and civilians were killed during the Al-Aqsa Flood Operation on October 7.

Our Vision For Liberation: Engaged Palestinian Leaders & Intellectuals Speak Out


  1. Let’s hope that the Resistance fighters will be able to get hold of this foul talking Lady
    Minister Golan and bring her to Gaza together with the rest of the hostages so by doing so she will realize the folly of what she’s talking as direct descendant of the Nazi Holocaust.

  2. It’s actually good that she, and others have said things like this because the world can now see exactly how twisted these people are. And then they invoke the
    ” Holocaust ” to shut you down. if GAZA hasn’t been a Holocaust over the past 70+ years, i’ll eat my copy of Mein Kampf.

  3. as an English Gentile agnostic, I am surprised that there are no reports AFAIK of Jews – whether observant or not – taking mortal offence at the unlovely Eylon Levy’s linking in the same breath the 7 October death toll and the Holocaust. This is moral turpitude – and naked sophistry – of the lowest sort, and must surely constitute an insult to the memory of the millions who died at the hands of the Nazis. To ‘weaponise’ the Holocaust in this way is as low as it gets. Shame on you
