Was this something an Israeli official said?
In a January 9, 2014 interview on Channel One TV news, Israel's Deputy-Minister for Defense said: "We should discipline Hamas just as Egypt does... We must strike them so they learn to respect the Israeli boot," adding: "Onlythen will they kiss that shoe and learn what Israel is worth."
But this is what was reported as said:
In a January 9, 2014 interview on Faraeen TV, Egyptian journalist MuhammadHassan Al-Alfi said: "We should discipline [Hamas] just as Israel did... Wemust strike them so they learn to respect the Egyptian shoe," adding: "Onlythen will they kiss that shoe and learn what Egypt is worth."
Muhammad Hassan Al-Alfi: I pray that Allah deems every word that I everwrote in defense of the Palestinian cause to be a sin, for which He willreckon with on Judgment Day, because they are not worthy of what he havedone for them. Our sons were killed and our economy was ruined in warsfought for their sake. We fought for their sake, and now, they are fightingagainst us, kidnapping our sons [in Sinai] and killing them.
The terrorist camps in Gaza must be attacked. The Al-Qassam Brigades, whichtrain them and send them over here, must be attacked. We should disciplinethem just as Israel did. We should not just retaliate. When you are weak,you get hit. We must strike them so they learn to respect the Egyptian shoe.
TV Host: Exactly.
Muhammad Hassan Al-Alfi: Only then will they kiss that shoe and learn whatEgypt is worth.
