chained_bear commented on the word shoah
That's very chilling, indeed, skipvia. I had never heard it used in such a way either. Thanks for posting.

skipvia commented on the word shoah
It was the first time I had ever heard the term used as a threat--as in "we'll create another shoah in Gaza." It was kind of chilling...

Yes, c_b, in my experience it is.
I think this is far more often used to refer to the Nazi Holocaust, though--is it not? (See also discussion on porajmos.)
Hebrew for "holocaust" or "disaster." Quoted in the news recently as a threat from Israel regarding what will transpire in Gaza should Hamas continue shelling Israeli territory.
