An Israeli lawmaker has already urged the ruling class she is a part of to use “everything in its arsenal,” including “doomsday” weapons, against Hamas. She suggested using “powerful missiles without limit” in the newly established war.
טיל יריחו! טיל יריחו! התרעה אסטרטגית. לפני ששוקלים הכנסת כוחות.
נשק יום הדין! זו דעתי.
ה׳ ישמור את כוחותינו כולם.

Revital “Tally” Gotliv wrote her sentiments on X for the world to read and it looks like other members of the ruling class feel the same. Benjamin Netanyahu previously said Hamas “will pay a price it has never known before” for its attacks.
“Jericho missile! Jericho missile! A strategic alert, before we consider introducing our forces. A doomsday weapon!” Revital “Tally” Gotliv, a member of the Israeli parliament, wrote in a post on X on Monday. “This is my opinion. May God preserve all our strength.”
Gotliv’s post referenced Israel’s Jericho ballistic missiles. Israel’s government has neither confirmed nor denied the existence of its nuclear arsenal, according to a report by Business Insider. She added that her ruling class needs to be “merciless” against Hamas.
“Only an explosion that shakes the Middle East will restore this country’s dignity, strength, and security! It’s time to kiss doomsday,” Gotliv wrote in her post on X. “Shooting powerful missiles without limit. Not flattening a neighborhood. Crushing and flattening Gaza,” she continued. “Otherwise, we would have done nothing. Not with passwords, with penetrating bombs. Without mercy! Without mercy!”
Casualties are mounting on both sides of this war as Israel continues strikes on Gaza. Innocent lives have been lost on both sides, as the U.S. sends weapons to Israel to prolong this war.
On Tuesday, a spokesperson for the Israel Defense Forces said that at least 1,200 Israelis have been killed. The war has claimed at least 830 lives in Gaza, with thousands more injured, per the Gaza Ministry of Health.

The death toll will not stop there. Expect these numbers to rapidly increase into the tens of thousands, especially as rulers such as Gotliv continue with their violent war-mongering rhetoric.
