Beirut (QNN)- Lebanese actress Soha Qiqano has referred to Palestinians as “monsters” and called for burning them in Nazi leader Adolf Hitler’s ovens over their peaceful protest against the Lebanese decision to restrict their working rights.
Qiqano wrote on Twitter: “The Palestinians in Sidon are protesting against the decisions of the labour minister. May they get blinded,” suggesting that measures are needed to “get rid” of them.
The actress then mentioned several ways to do this, including Hitler’s ovens, which were used to carry out the Holocaust. She then described Palestinians as “unleashed like monsters,” adding that “they want to work without laws”.
The tweet triggered wide-spread controversy in Lebanon. Some called for prosecuting Qiqano and others called for Lebanese Foreign Minister, Gebran Bassil, to hold a partisan court for her since she is a member of his party, the Free National Current.
Palestinian refugees in Lebanon have been recently protesting against discriminatory law against Palestinian workers.
