• "…They want to spread death and ruin, through which they apply Yehoshua Ben Noun's legacy… Here are his descendents – they do not revolt or rebel against the text. Furthermore, they literally stick to it. The testimonies of the survivors of the Holocaust and the field annihilation that they commit in cold blood and mean and barbaric intentions – are all definite proof that what they say is a lie, as well as the targets they claim that they would like to achieve through the open massacre in the Gaza Strip…

This is a collective annihilation war against the Palestinian people… Gaza's Holocaust scraped off many wounds among the Palestinians, the Arabs and the peace-loving forces… Gaza's Holocaust brought back the Nazi and Fascist crimes against the world's people to mind, but under a new and modern cover imposed by the scientific advancement of destructive weapons which this entity has…" -- (Dr. Fayez Rashid, "Gaza's Holocaust and More about Knowing this Enemy," Ad-Dustur, January 2, 2009.
