Heritage Minister Amichai Eliyahu from Otzma Yehudit was suspended on Sunday from government meetings after he said dropping an atom bomb on Gaza is an option in an interview with Kol Baram on Sunday morning.

The statement was made regarding his discussion of humanitarian aid to Gaza.

“We wouldn’t have given the Nazis humanitarian aid,” he said. “There’s no such thing as innocents in Gaza.”

When the interviewer asked whether Israel should just drop an atomic bomb on the Strip, Eliyahu replied that that was an option. Upon being reminded of the more than 240 hostages being held in Gaza, he said he would pray for their return but that “there is also a price to war.”

Only two days earlier, Eliyahu had tweeted about destroying an entire city, comparing it to Sodom and Gamora.

“God taught Abraham that even though the people of Sodom were evil and sinners, the decision to obliterate them was made after they heard the screams of a girl being raped and didn’t act mercifully,” he wrote. “There is patience for evil that at some point needs to stop.”
