Israel Hayom publisher Dr. Miriam Adelson published a special column for Forbes Israel. In her article, titled "Dead in Our Eyes," Dr. Adelson attacks anti-Israeli organizations around the world, clarifying that demonstrations in support of Hamas and the Palestinians in Western capitals are not legitimate "protests" but rather "celebrations of praise for monsters."
"These people are not our visitors. They are our enemies. They are the ideological sponsors in Western countries of those who are willing to do anything to dispossess us of the Middle East. Therefore, they should be quantified in our eyes." Dr. Adelson writes in the opening article of the October-November 2023 issue of the magazine.

Dr. Adelson goes on to note the wars waged by Western countries in Afghanistan, Iraq and Somalia in which a lot of blood was shed (significantly greater than the current war in the Gaza Strip), and points an accusing finger at those who criticize the modus operandi of IDF forces that try to minimize harm to civilians and innocent people.
The article also sharply criticizes the diplomatic voices constantly striving for a compromise with the murderous Hamas organization, and raises the question of whether they would have thought of negotiating with the Nazis, al-Qaeda or ISIS.
Dr. Adelson concludes the article with these words: "We Israelis, we Jews, love life. And we are tired of counting our dead with restraint. We have given so much to the world, so much to generations of civilization—it is time for the world to give back-for-tat. Don't be dead in our eyes. Be decent. Demonstrate moral and intellectual clarity. Be brave. We will not forgive our enemies in Gaza or anywhere else. If you didn't, you would forgive. And we will not forget the many who stand by us, understanding that our struggle is also theirs."
