Israeli official calls settlers “sub human”

Statement sparks anger from Prime Minister

Jerusalem24 – Deputy Minister of Economy and Industry in the Israeli occupation government, Yair Golan, described the settlers in the “Homesh” settlement site as sub human.

“These people who come to settle there, riot in the [adjacent Palestinian] village of Burqa, smash gravestones — they are carrying out a pogrom. We, the Jewish people, who suffered pogroms throughout history, are now carrying out pogroms on others?” he exclaimed.

“These aren’t people; they are subhuman, despicable people… they should not get any support and they should be removed by force from there,” Golan said.

Hitting back, Prime Minister Bennett tweeted that Golan’s remarks are “shocking, generalizing and a borderline blood libel.”
