Feiglin later said: “What we saw yesterday at the port of Beirut was much bigger. The destruction effect (without the radiation) was of a nuclear mini-bomb.” He also wrote: “Now pay attention, especially in the pictures from the sea, to the huge vacuum in the center of the explosion that sucked the seawater into it and picked up a mushroom similar to a nuclear explosion. So it is true that the terrible effect of radiation is not there, Missiles that know how to reach any strategic point in Israel. ”

He summed up the post and said: “Today Tu B’Av is a day of true and huge joy and thanks to God and all the geniuses and heroes who really organized for us this wonderful celebration in honor of Valentine’s Day.”
