(NEWS) Lieberman: Peace Talks Should Cover Future Of Israeli Arabs

"Lieberman says formula for negotiations with Palestinians should not be ‘land for peace,’ but territory and population exchange; MK Zoabi: Israel Beiteinu leader believes in ethnic cleansing.

With Israeli and Palestinian teams meeting in Washington this week to organize the next meeting between Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu and Palestinian Authority President Mahmoud Abbas, Foreign Minister Avigdor Lieberman said the issue of Israeli Arabs should be placed very high up on the agenda of the Israeli-Palestinian negotiations.

Lieberman, speaking before Sunday’s cabinet meeting, said that the expressed adamant refusal of the Arab league and the PA to recognize Israel as the nationstate of the Jewish people because of the concern that this would harm the status of Israeli Arabs, their demand for a right for Palestinian refugees and their descendents to move to Israel, coupled with the behavior of Haneen Zoabi (Balad) and other Arab MKs who he said were fighting Zionism, made it incumbent to place the issue of Israeli Arabs in the center of the negotiations with the Palestinians."
