I want to apologize to the Deputy Chief of Staff Yair Golan. It turns out that someone had made a substitution in the text of his speech. Here is the part of his speech [that caused such a ruckus and outcry – YM] in its original version:

“If there is some memory that is scary to see in recalling the horrifying developments that took place in Europe that have begin to unfold here, it is noticing horrific processes which developed in Europe – particularly in Germany – 70, 80, and 90 years ago, and finding remnants of that here in the Jewish state the year 2016, among the Palestinians who are trying to kill us just because we are Jews who are different from them
Thus, they are trying to complete what the Mufti tried to do in hoping to build incinerators as Jews in the Dotan Valley. It is time to stop this campaign of murder against our people. The time has come for the Palestinians to stop trying to be like the Nazis

That was my translation, with a bit of improvement.


Thank you, my friend, Shimon.



  1. agree totally agree.what belongs to israel is theirs.This ownership crap has to stop.Because every Israeli citizen i know has worked for their stake at the behest of the government,Do not lose faith. i amke many mistakes in speaking hebrew as i am not jewish myself.It is the yetz harah necessary to bring awareness

  2. The Deputy commander of the IDF rose hopefully because he knew what he was always saying and thinking. Suddenly, he is incapable? That is bull. The top ISF officers are from the old elite Ashkenazi secular left and Far Left population and continue to identify with them politically. Now much fewer of the Left and Far Left go in the army as they are cowardly and would rather drink lattes in North Tel Aviv than risk their lives in the army. They get out by bribing doctors or lying The top brass have become hysterical that the new lower ranks of officers are from the Religious Zionist movement and from the Sephardic, Mizrachi, and Ethiopian population who volunteer to go into the combat battalions, from where the top leadership is chosen eventually.

  3. Maybe Israel’s deputy chief of staff, General Yair Golan meant something else. Maybe he was referring to the torturing of observant Jews by the Shabak on orders of the previous attorney general. This led to a suicide attempt of a Jewish minor. There are some gruesome similarities.
