The Israel Defense Forces (IDF) found an Arabic copy of Nazi dictator Adolf Hitler’s “Mein Kampf” — in a children’s room at a home inside Gaza — as its forces continue to root out Hamas terrorists inside the territory.
President Isaac Herzog first revealed the discovered book during an interview with the BBC and showed that terrorists had written various notes in Arabic and highlighted passages in the book.
“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 IDF said on X. “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,” the IDF added.
Never again is NOW.

During World War II, Hitler met with the Grand Mufti of Jerusalem, Haj Amin al-Husseini, who Palestinians see as one of the fathers of Palestinian nationalism, on November 28, 1941, at the Reich Chancellory in Berlin.
During the meeting, al-Husseini conveyed to Hitler that he was “admired by the entire Arab world” because “of the sympathy which he had always shown for the Arab and especially the Palestinian cause,” according to an official German record of the meeting. He told Hitler that the Arabs were natural friends with Nazi Germany because they both hated Jews.
Hitler told al-Husseini that Germany’s war against the Jews was “uncompromising” and that he actively opposed “the Jewish national home in Palestine” because he claimed it was “nothing other than a center, in the form of a state, for the exercise of destructive influence by Jewish interests.”
Tens of thousands of Muslims also fought for Germany during WWII as Nazi Germany “made significant attempts to promote an alliance with the ‘Muslim world’ against their alleged common enemies,” according to a report from German public state-owned international broadcaster Deutsche Welle.
Today, there are multiple schools in the Palestinian territories — both in Gaza and in the Judea and Samaria Area — that have been named after Nazi collaborators, according to a report from Palestinian Media Watch.
Palestinian Authority President Mahmoud Abbas’s Fatah movement has also posted the covers of anti-Semitic children’s books from Nazi Germany on their social media pages.
