Israel’s Finance Minister, Bezalel Smotrich, is facing a backlash after he said the West Bank town of Huwara “needs to be erased” in response to the killing of Israeli citizens.
Smotrich said, after asking him why he liked a tweet that said the town of Huwara should be wiped out, that he believes “that the village of Huwara should be wiped out, and I believe that the State of Israel needs to do that and not ordinary people should do that, God forbid,” as he put it. .
These comments caused quite a stir as he literally called on the Israeli government and army to erase the Palestinian town.
The Attorney General has already called on the Israel Police to investigate another Member of Parliament who made similar comments, and there are now many calls to investigate the Minister of Finance for these inflammatory comments as well.
