Facebook today (Thursday) removed a post by former Knesset member and chairman of the Identity Party Moshe Feiglin in which he expressed joy over the disaster in the port of Beirut. Feiglin called the explosion that claimed the lives of more than a hundred people a “celebration of Valentine’s Day.” Because the content in it mocks the victims, which is contrary to our policy. ”

Feiglin shared a photo documenting the moment of the explosion in Lebanon and wrote, “You do not really believe it was some messy fuel depot, yes? You understand that this hell was supposed to fall on us in a rain of missiles. I have little experience with explosives. The biggest explosion I have taken. In which part was of 2.5 tons TNT.

He added that “for years I have been warning that the withdrawal from Lebanon and the new strategic balance against Hezbollah (‘thanks’ to four mothers,’ ‘thanks’ to Shelly Yachimovich, and of course’ special thanks’ to Ehud Barak), have put Israel on a balance of terror equivalent to a nuclear bomb. In the hands of the terrorist organization. “
