Israel’s Lieberman calls for beheading of Arab Israelis

The Israeli foreign minister has called for the beheading of all Arabs living in the occupied territories, only because of their opposition to the policies of the Tel Aviv regime.

Avigdor Lieberman said on Sunday that all Arabs who reside in occupied Palestine and oppose Israel for its discriminatory policies against the Palestinians should be decapitated.

“… those against us, it cannot be helped, we must lift up an ax and behead them — otherwise we will not survive here.”  Lieberman said.

The extremist Israeli politician, who leads the Yisrael Beytenu party, made the remarks during a campaign event ahead of the general election slated for mid March.

Lieberman has repeatedly called for taking harsh measures against the Arabs living in the occupied territories, whom Lieberman call terrorists because of expressing their solidarity with the Palestinians. He has even called for issuing death penalties for those who publicly denounce Israeli’s policies against the Palestinians.

“… [those] who raise a black flag on Nakba Day [on which Palestinians mourn the establishment of Israel] — from my perspective, they should leave here,” he said.

Lieberman has also proposed a land swaps plan in which Arabs would be handed over to the Palestinian Authority in exchange for more territories in which Israel could expand its illegal settlements.

In a TV debate earlier in the month, Lieberman lashed out at leader of the Arab party, Ayman Odeh, calling him a terror supporter and a fifth column.

Lieberman is quite known for his odd and controversial comments on foreign policy issues, with Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu designating him as the “embarrassing foreign minister.”
