The Israel Defense Forces in the Gaza Strip discovered a copy of Nazi dictator Adolf Hitler's autobiographical manifesto "Mein Kampf" translated into Arabic in a child's bedroom that was being used as a Hamas terrorist base, Israeli officials said Sunday. 

"Never again is NOW," the IDF wrote on X, formerly Twitter. "IDF forces discovered a copy of Hitler's infamous book 'Mein Kampf'—translated into Arabic—in a child’s bedroom used as a Hamas terrorist base in Gaza. The book was discovered among the personal belongings of one of the terrorists, featuring annotations and highlights. Hamas embraces the ideology of Hitler, the one responsible for the annihilation of the Jewish people."

A photo of the book shows how passages are highlighted and additional notes were made in Arabic. 

"Antisemitism kills," the state of Israel commented on pictures of the book, which was originally published in German in 1925, on X. "It starts with words. It ends with Jewish blood in the streets."

The Hamas founding charter is deeply antisemitic. For example, one article quotes a hadith, or purported saying from the Muslim prophet Mohammed, stating: "The Day of Judgement will not come about until Muslims fight the Jews (killing the Jews), when the Jew will hide behind stones and trees. The stones and trees will say O Muslims, O Abdulla, there is a Jew behind me, come and kill him."

It also states that it is the "individual duty of every Muslim" to participate in jihad, and states: "There is no solution for the Palestinian question except through Jihad."

Israel invaded the Gaza Strip, which is run by the U.S. State Department-designated foreign terror organization Hamas, after terrorists invaded Israel on Oct. 7, killing about 1,200 people and taking around 240 others hostage.
