Leading Israeli Minister Lieberman Unveils Racist Peace Plan: Pay Palestinians to Leave Israel

The latest shocker, reported in Haaretz. Maybe the New York Times will cover this before long, and lament its beloved Israeli democracy for even permitting such discussion. By a leading government minister who seeks to be Prime Minister.

Barak Ravid reports:

Foreign Minister Avigdor Lieberman on Friday published an updated platform for his party, Yisrael Beiteinu, which includes a “peace plan” that calls on the government to encourage the transfer of Israeli Arabs to a Palestinian state by offering them “economic incentives.”

The platform, which may be another sign that Knesset elections are forthcoming, was published on the Yisrael Beiteinu website and reiterates declarations the foreign minister has made over the past year. The diplomatic portion of the platform, or its “peace plan,” does not include clear positions on issues such as Israel’s borders, the status of Jerusalem or settlement construction and the future of existing Israeli settlements.

The only subject that the plan addresses in detail is that of Israel’s Arab citizens. Lieberman repeated his proposal for land and population swaps between Israel and a future Palestinian state, but took it a step further by encouraging Israel to pay Arabs from Jaffa or Acre to move.

Rebecca Vilkomerson said in October that there are fascist trends in Israeli society; Max Blumenthal reported this in his book a year ago; the late Fouzi Al-Asmar reported these Israeli tendencies to the west nearly 40 years ago. Is anybody listening?

A leftwing site, Antifa News, responds:

Liberman proposes out loud what many still don’t dare say – the goal is to clear the country of non-Jews, and Arabs first of all.

We propose something else: clear the country of the fascists instead.

Liberman, Netanyahu, Bennett, you all have foreign passports. Get the hell out, go to Moldova, USA, the Mariana Trench, or anywhere, and just get the hell out of our lives!

Thanks to Ofer.
