Yisrael Beiteinu Chairman MK Avigdor Lieberman said at a Knesset plenary meeting on Monday, addressing Arab MKs, that "a new administration will be established and then we will take care of you."
The statement came three days after Lieberman made another inflammatory statement directed at Arab MKs, shortly after an Israeli Arab terrorist gunned down students at the Mercaz Harav yeshiva in Jerusalem on Thursday, killing eight people. Lieberman had said following the incident that the attack had been a result of incitement to violence propagated by Arab MKs.

Lieberman added that "today we have a government made up of wimps. Believe me, this is temporary, just as you are temporary here. Just as the Kuwaiti government knew ho to handle situations like these," referring to the Kuwaiti decision to deport citizens who attended a rally commemorating the arch terrorist Imad Mughniyah, who was killed in a bomb blast in Damascus on February 12.

I wish I knew what a “MK” was.
‘MK’=Member of Knesset
20% of Israel’s population is Arab. Compare that to 13% of the US population being black and 14% of the US population being Latino.
By 2050, Arabs will be 25% of the population of Israel.
Too bad they didn’t listen to Rabbi Kahane z”l when they had the chance.
Member of Knesset (the Israeli parlement).
Any relation to Joe?
Wow, you can tell he was Russian.
He should be Prime Minister!
I about had a heart attack when I saw only the headline!
Naturally my first impression was this was our Joe Lieberman saying the American govt is made up of wimps. In which case I would have personally sent a telegram to McCain pleading to make him the VP choice. However...oh well, for a few seconds I had a thrilling vision.
When I saw the name “Lieberman” in the headline, I too thought first of Joe, but then recalled that there was a Lieberman prominent in Israeli politics on the Right.
The two are not related. (Lieberman is a fairly common Jewish or German name.)
Anyone who says Israel is an apartheid state should comment on the fact they have Arab MKs. Can’t imagine there are too many Jewish MPs in Arab nations.
There are not too many Parliaments in Arab nations.
He is one of the best pols in Israel today.
Among other things.
