    Fareed Zakaria (fareedzakaria) Interviewed a "Palestinian" rep. that has played that drama hype language on Israel, like "apartheid" (never mind the unfair treatment Jewish Israelis often run into as opposed to Israeli Arabs being favored in Israeli courts and police) & excusing Palestinian crimes (including genocidal Hamas that uses Arab civilians to kill Israeli civilians) with the usual "occupation" of course.

    Israel Beiteinu chairman Avigdor Lieberman refused to endorse either Kadima chairwoman Tzipi Livni or Likud leader Binyamin Netanyahu on Tuesday night, saying rather his party would be open to hearing from all parties involved in the formation of the next coalition, but his party would never give up its core principles. Israel Beiteinu leader... "We truly hope that one of the dramatic changes that will be in the next government will be a change in the method of governing," Lieberman said following the exit polls which predicted Livni the winner of the election. "We will be open to hearing what...
  • Avigdor Lieberman to Become Kingmaker in Israeli Elections

    02/07/2009 2:47:37 PM PST · by quesney · 15 replies · 1,088+ views
    The Haaretz poll showed Avigdor Lieberman's party surging to 18 seats, compared with Labor's 14. That sets Lieberman up as a kingmaker, holding the crucial swing votes that the winner will need to form a government. Lieberman clearly leans toward Netanyahu. A tough-talking immigrant from Moldova who succeeded in turning a party for immigrants from the former Soviet Union into one with broad national appeal, Lieberman has centered his platform on attacking Israel's Arab citizens, demanding that they sign an oath of loyalty or lose their right to vote or be elected. Perhaps his most polarizing policy is to redraw...
  • A Hard-Liner Gains Ground in Israel (Makes Bibi Netanyahu Look Like a Dove)

    JERUSALEM — Last year, he suggested publicly that Egypt’s president “go to hell.” In the Israeli parliamentary elections, to be held Tuesday, he is running on a vow to require Arab citizens to sign a loyalty oath. As his campaign slogan asserts with a sly wink at Jewish voters, Avigdor Lieberman “knows how to speak Arabic.” Mr. Lieberman does not know Arabic and will not, by all polls and predictions, become the next prime minister. But his popularity has been climbing so steeply that his party is now expected to come in third, making him a likely power broker with...

    "It's more of a crack-down on those who break the law," he continued. "Take those protesters, for example. I mean, you're allowed to protest, but there has to be a limit. If you get caught at a protest doing something violent or illegal, the law applies to you as well, and he's [Lieberman] simply saying that he's going to enforce it." ... But Lieberman articulated what some of his supporters couldn't on Sunday night, telling the crowd at the Haifa Theater that "the answer is clear. Without loyalty there can be no citizenship, and those who badmouth us only do...

    When Israel votes in Tuesday's general election, a hard-Right politician who denounces the Arab minority as a 'fifth column' will probably become one of the country's most influential powerbrokers. All the polls suggest that Avigdor Lieberman, the leader of the Yisrael Beiteinu party, is on course to seize the balance of power between the centrist Kadima party and the Right-wing Likud party and win enough support to make or break a new coalition. Avigdor Lieberman is set for a surge in support The deep fears of ordinary Israelis explain his sudden popularity. Hana Amrin joined Mr Lieberman's growing army of...

    An incitement campaign promoted by Arab leaders and MKs is what led to the terror attack at Mercaz Harav yeshiva in Jerusalem on Thursday, MK Avigdor Lieberman (Yisrael Beiteinu), said Friday. "Their incitement certainly contributed to the atmosphere that led an Israeli citizen who works in Israel to carry out an attack," he stated. Lieberman told Ynet that "unfortunately, we are submerged in a wave of terror. It doesn't matter whether it's a terrorist coming from Hebron to Dimona, an attempted lynching in east Jerusalem like several days ago, the Qassam fire on Sderot or Ashkelon or this serious attack...

    At the end of the Second Lebanon War, Israel rumbled at the edge of a political volcano. Demobilized reservists marched to Jerusalem demanding that Prime Minister Ehud Olmert resign in the wake of his incompetent handling of the war. Just as the reservists' protests were gathering momentum, in walked Avigdor Lieberman, the head of the rightist Israel Beiteinu party, and saved the government. Without so much as haggling over the price Olmert would pay for his surprising support, Lieberman joined the government in the ill-defined and powerless role of strategic affairs minister. Lieberman defended his move on patriotic grounds. The...

    A key right-wing partner in Israel's coalition government announced his withdrawal over peace negotiations with the Palestinians. Avigdor Lieberman said Wednesday he was taking his Yisrael Beiteinu faction out of the government in light of Prime Minister Ehud Olmert's decision to negotiate with the Palestinian Authority on "core" peacemaking issues such as the future status of Jerusalem and West Bank land handovers. Yisrael Beiteinu argues that the Jewish state should annex West Bank settlement blocs while ceding Israeli Arab communities to the jurisdiction of a future Palestine. To do otherwise, Lieberman said, would be to encourage pro-Palestinian irredentism within Israel....

    Published: 09/06/07, 11:19 AM Lieberman: 'Land for Peace' Will Lead to Certain Failure by Hillel Fendel ( Minister of Strategic Affairs Avigdor Lieberman and his Yisrael Beiteinu party have taken the unique step of releasing a "party platform" in between national elections - in what some see as not only a promotional endeavor, but also a well-timed political ploy. Named the party's "vision," the paper begins by terming itself a "sincere and genuine effort to present Yisrael Beiteinu's outlook, without using worn out phrases or vague terminology that leave room for misunderstandings." The paper deals with issues such as the...

    Israel's strategic affairs minister called for cutting power supplies to the Gaza Strip. Avigdor Lieberman said Thursday he was preparing a proposal for the Olmert government to declare Gaza, from which cross-border rocket salvoes have surged this month, an independent and hostile political entity. That, he said, would empower Israel to suspend electricity to the Palestinian Authority. "This absurd situation, in which the Rotenberg power station supplies electricity to the foundries in Gaza that manufacture Kassam rockets which are then fired at us, has got to stop," Lieberman told Army Radio. "Since we talked about disengagement and implemented disengagement, we...

    ( Minister of Strategic Affairs Avigdor Lieberman said Monday that Israel must warn American Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice that she is being deceived. Lieberman said that PA Arabs, including PA Chairman Mahmoud Abbas, have not fulfilled a single condition set by the Quartet. Lieberman also claimed that the new "unity government" in the PA is actually a Hamas government, which is using the Fatah organization to mask its true leaders. Lieberman called on Prime Minister Ehud Olmert, who is scheduled to meet with Rice and Abbas next Monday, to emphasize to Rice that she and the rest of the...

    Minister of Strategic Threats Avigdor Lieberman on Tuesday sent a letter to new United Nations Secretary General Ban Ki-moon asking him to revoke Iran's UN membership, Army Radio reported. Lieberman also called to pressure the UN Security Council to impose significant sanctions on Iran, according to the radio. "If the world allows Iran to achieve nuclear capability, Israel will be the first to pay the price," he wrote. Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad scorned the Security Council's imposing sanctions on Iran, telling a crowd Tuesday that Iran had humiliated the United States in the past and would do so again.

But he intends to respond positively to one interview request, from Al Jazeera's soon-to-launch international English network, provided it also runs on the network's Arabic channel. And Lieberman has responded in writing to one of the critical articles: He fired off a letter on Monday night - the same evening as he was sworn in to his new posts...

    Israel's Prime Minister Ehud Olmert says he disagrees with comments by his new Cabinet minister that Israel's Arab citizens should be separated from the Jewish majority. Mr. Olmert said Sunday he supports equal rights for Israel's Arab citizens. Earlier, Deputy Prime Minister Avigdor Lieberman said Israeli Arabs should be separated from the Jewish majority using the model of Cyprus, an ethnically-divided island. In an interview with Britain's Sunday Telegraph newspaper, the ultranationalist politician described Israel's Arab minority as a "problem". He said the best way to keep Israel a Jewish state is to separate from the Arabs in the same...

    The Israeli prime minister, Ehud Olmert, yesterday finally turned his back on the centrist agenda which brought him to power earlier this year by bringing into his coalition government one of the country's most outspoken rightwing politicians.The return to government of Avigdor Lieberman, who has called for Israel's borders to be redrawn to exclude its Arab citizens, signals a more hawkish policy. He will be made a deputy prime minister with responsibility for "strategic threats", particularly Iran. His sudden rise to power mirrors a shift to the right among the Israeli public in the wake of the Lebanon war.

Adds, this is time to attack Syria The speech given by Prime Minister Ehud Olmert Monday night and the supporting speech by MK Benjamin Netanyahu, head of the opposition, created a distinct impression of unity – but head of the Israel Our Home faction, MK Avigdor Lieberman, didn’t rush to join the fun.

    The best plan is simple – an exchange of territory to transfer the bloc of Arab towns in Israel to Palestinian sovereignty. With attention focused on the death and funeral of Yasser Arafat, perhaps it is a good time to rethink the political capital it will take to pull off Prime Minister Ariel Sharon's plan for a unilateral disengagement from Gaza and parts of the northern West Bank. It would be a shame to waste energy and money, trigger a governmental crisis – and perhaps new elections – over an issue which, after all is said and done, is marginal...

    Opinions Range From "Don´t Expel Arafat" To "Smash The Entire P.A." IDF Intelligence Chief Gen. Aharon Ze'evi-Farkash told the Knesset Foreign Affairs and Defense Committee today that the recent focus on Arafat is actually strengthening him. Farkash warned, in the name of all Israel's security bodies, that expelling Arafat would "unite all the PA organizations on both sides and will increase terrorism." Farkash further said that Abu Mazen's main obstacle is Arafat, who is "sticking his hands everywhere, including encouraging terror." Farkash confirmed, in this connection, the indications that Arafat is funding the Al-Aqsa terrorist group. MK Ehud Yatom...
