  • Israel discovers slain Hamas terrorist had copy of Adolf Hitler’s ‘Mein Kampf’  
  • President Isaac Herzog said discovery made in civilian home turned terror base
  • Nazi leader’s book was found annotated and highlighted by owner 

An Arabic copy of Hitler’s Nazi manifesto ‘Mein Kampf’ was found in a children’s bedroom used as a terror base in northern Gaza, the Israeli President said today.

IDF forces operating in northern Gaza made the shocking discovery on the body of a terrorist in a civilian home, being used as a Hamas base, President Isaac Herzog told the BBC’s Laura Kuenssberg today.

The family home had also housed explosives laboratories, and represented further proof of Hamas’s terrorist activity in the heart of the civilian population in Gaza, he said.

The anti-Semitic and partly autobiographical tract, written by Hitler in 1925, was among the personal belongings of one of the terrorists and included notes in the margins, highlighted sections, and annotated post-it notes.

President Herzog said: ‘This is Adolf Hitler’s book, Mein Kampf, translated into Arabic.

‘The terrorist wrote notes, marked the sections, and studied again and again, the ideology of Adolf Hitler to hate the Jews,’ President Herzog said as he flicked through the book to show annotations and highlights

President Herzog made the revelation in an interview on the BBC, in which he held up the book

‘This is the book that led to the Holocaust and the book that led to World War II. This book was found a few days ago in northern Gaza.

‘In a child’s room, which became a base used for terrorist activities by the terrorist organization Hamas. The terrorist wrote notes, marked the sections, and studied again and again, the ideology of Adolf Hitler to hate the Jews, to kill the Jews, to burn and slaughter Jews wherever they are. This is the real war we are facing.’

In response to reports about the desperate humanitarian crisis in northern Gaza, the Herzog stressed, ‘There is a lot of spin by Hamas. There is electricity in Shifa [hospital], everything is operating.

‘We’re speaking to the managers. We haven’t gone into Shifa where unfortunately underneath Shifa, there is a huge, huge terror base, actually the headquarters, the headquarters of the Hamas-ISIS operations is right there under Shifa.

‘Now exactly what are we supposed to do? Leave it as is and then in a few years time go again through the same motions – and you will say it’s disproportionate and we will have civilians being killed?

‘So we are calling on all of those uninvolved to go out to another hospital nearby, and we’re coordinating it very delicately with all forces around that place. Hamas is stopping them.’
