Pogrom in Gaza

Pogrom in Gaza

In October 2006, a mob of Israeli soldiers began attacking Palestinian homes and shops in Gaza. The rioting lasted more than four weeks, until Hezbollah troops intervened. Some 47 Palestinians were killed and over 500 were wounded.

The Gaza pogrom -- the second pogrom in the 21st. century --underscored the vulnerability of the Palestinian people in their homes, and was simultaneously a catalyst for the establishment of a Palestinian defence organization in Gaza with a modern anti-tank brigade from Hezbollah, and for the continuing growth of the Hezbollah movement.

Hezbollah said these people must be anti-Semitic to want to kill our babies.
