Israel’s Lieberman Proposes Redrawing Borders
Israels notoriously racist foreign minister, Avigdor Lieberman, has proposed that any future peace deal with the Palestinians should focus on a redrawing of his country’s borders, excluding much of Israel’s Arab citizenry while including illegal Jewish settlements in occupied Palestinian lands.
Lieberman’s vision is clear: Drastically decrease the number of Arabs living in his country. Ethnic purity, anyone? –JCL
Wait, before you go…
Israel’s foreign minister has said that a future peace deal with the Palestinians should centre around redrawing his country’s borders, proposing to exclude some of the country’s 1.3 million Arab citizens.
Avigdor Lieberman told reporters on Sunday that Israel’s future borders should incorporate Jewish settlements, while placing Arab villages in Israel on the Palestinian side.
“Our guiding principle in negotiations with the Palestinians must not be ‘land for peace’ but an exchange of territories and populations,” he said.
