Israeli forces kill Palestinian in Al-Arrub
Lieberman plan to strip Palestinians of citizenship - Jonathan Cook

Avigdor Lieberman, Israel’s far-right foreign minister, set out last week what he called a “blueprint for a resolution to the conflict” with the Palestinians that demands most of the country’s large Palestinian minority be stripped of citizenship and relocated outside Israel’s future borders.

Lieberman warned that Israel faces growing diplomatic pressure for a full withdrawal to the Green Line, the pre-1967 border. Lieberman said that, if such a partition were implemented, “the conflict will inevitably pass beyond those borders and into Israel.”

He accused many of Israel’s 1.3 million Palestinian citizens of acting against Israel while their leaders “actively assist those who want to destroy the Jewish state.”

Lieberman’s Yisrael Beiteinu party campaigned in last year’s elections on a platform of “No loyalty, no citizenship” and has proposed a raft of loyalty laws over the past year targeted at the Palestinian minority.

True peace, the foreign minister claimed, would come only with land swaps, or “an exchange of populated territories to create two largely homogeneous states, one Jewish Israeli and the other Arab Palestinian.” He added that under his plan “those Arabs who were in Israel will now receive Palestinian citizenship.”

Unusually, Lieberman, who is also deputy prime minister, offered his plan in a commentary for the English-language Israeli daily newspaper Jerusalem Post, apparently in an attempt to make maximum impact on the international community.

He has spoken repeatedly in the past about drawing the borders in a way to forcibly exchange Palestinian communities in Israel for the Israeli settlements in the West Bank.

But under orders from Benjamin Netanyahu, the prime minister, he has kept a relatively low profile on the conflict’s larger issues since his controversial appointment to head the foreign ministry more than a year ago.

In early 2009, Lieberman, who lives in the West Bank settlement of Noqedim, upset his own supporters by advocating the creation of “a viable Palestinian state,” though he has remained unclear about what it would require in practice.

Lieberman’s revival of his “population transfer” plan - an idea he unveiled six years ago - comes as the Israeli leadership has understood that it is “isolated like never before,” according to Michael Warschawski, an Israeli analyst.

Netanyahu’s government has all but stopped paying lip service to US-sponsored “proximity talks” with the Palestinians after outraging global public opinion with attacks on Gaza 18 months ago and on a Gaza-bound aid flotilla four weeks ago in which nine civilians were killed.

Israel’s relations with the international community are likely to deteriorate further in late summer when a 10-month partial freeze on settlement expansion in the West Bank expires. Last week, Netanyahu refused to answer questions about the freeze, after a vote by his Likud party’s central committee to support renewed settlement building from late September.

Other looming diplomatic headaches for Israel are the return of the Goldstone Report, which suggested Israel committed war crimes in its attack on Gaza, to the United Nations General Assembly in late July, and Turkey’s adoption of the rotating presidency of the Security Council in September.

Warschawski, a founder of the Alternative Information Centre, a joint Israeli-Palestinian advocacy group, said that, faced with these crises, Israel’s political elite had split into two camps.

Most, including Lieberman, believed Israel should “push ahead” with its unilateral policies towards the Palestinians and refuse to engage in a peace process regardless of the likely international repercussions.

“Israel’s ruling elite knows that the only solution to the conflict acceptable to the international community is an end to the occupation along the lines of the Clinton parameters,” he said, referring to the two-state solution promoted by former US president Bill Clinton in late 2000.

“None of them, not even Ehud Barak [the defence minister and head of the centrist Labour Party], are ready to accept this as the basis for negotiations.”

On the other hand, Tzipi Livni, the head of the center-right opposition Kadima party, Warschawski said, wanted to damp down the international backlash by engaging in direct negotiations with the Palestinian leadership in the West Bank under President Mahmoud Abbas.

Lieberman’s commentary came a day after he told Livni that she could join the government only if she accepted “the principle of trading territory and population as the solution to the Palestinian issue, and give up the principle of land for peace.”

Lieberman is reportedly concerned that Netanyahu might seek to bring Livni into a national unity government to placate the US and prop up the legitimacy of his coalition.

The Labor Party has threatened to quit the government if Kadima does not join by the end of September, and Livni is reported to want the foreign ministry.

Lieberman’s position is further threatened by a series of corruption investigations.

However, he also appears keen to take the initiative from both Washington and Livni with his own “peace plan.” An unnamed aide to Lieberman told the Jerusalem Post that, with a vacuum in the diplomatic process, the foreign minister “thinks he can convince the government to adopt the plan.”

However, Warschawski said there were few indications that Netanyahu wanted to be involved in any peace process, even Lieberman’s.

Last week Uzi Arad, the government’s shadowy national security adviser and a long-time confidant of Netanyahu, made a rare public statement at a meeting of the Jewish Agency in Jerusalem to attack Livni for “political adventurism” and believing in the “magic” of a two-state solution.

Apparently reflecting Netanyahu’s own thinking, he said: “The more you market Palestinian legitimacy, the more you bring about a detraction of Israel’s legitimacy in certain circles. [The Palestinians] are accumulating legitimacy, and we are being delegitimized.”

Warschawski doubted that Lieberman believed his blueprint for population exchanges could be implemented but was promoting it chiefly to further damage the standing of Israel’s Palestinian citizens and advance his own political ambitions.

In his commentary, Lieberman said the international community’s peace plan would lead to “the one-and-a-half to half state solution”: “a homogeneous, pure Palestinian state,” from which Jewish settlers were expelled, and “a bi-national state in Israel,” which included many Palestinian citizens.

Palestinians, in both the territories and inside Israel, he said, could not “continue to incite against Israel, glorify murder, stigmatize Israel in international forums, boycott Israeli goods and mount legal offensives against Israeli officials.”

International law, he added, sanctioned the partition of territory in which ethnic communities were broken up into different states, including in the case of the former Yugoslavia. “In most cases there is no physical population transfer or the demolition of houses, but creating a border where none existed, according to demographics,” he wrote.

Surveys have shown that Palestinian citizens are overwhelming opposed to “population transfer” schemes like Lieberman’s.

Critics note that Lieberman has failed to show how the many Palestinian communities inside Israel that are located far from the Green Line could be incorporated into a Palestinian state without expulsions.

Legal experts also point out that, even if Israel managed to trade territory as part of a peace agreement, stripping Palestinians of their Israeli citizenship as a result of such a deal would violate international law.

All Lieberman proposed was that in order to define a two-state solution, some transfer of territory would be appropriate. In that way, some settlements east of the Green Line could continue to be governed by Israel. In return, a large geographical portion in what is known as the "triangle area", mostly populated by Arabs, be transferred to the control of the new government of the Palestinian state. the journalist must be having a "slow news day"; he could be accused of "incitement".

In view of the Arrest of Seven Israeli Arabs, operating a terror cell within Israel, having killed a Taxi driver, it is best to implement the Apratheid the Arabs have been complaining about

This will give them a real reason to complain

What we have is a murderous fifth column, allied with AlQuaeda & Hamas

It is well known by several sources that Lieberman wants to deport all Arab citizens with a two state solution. Tzipi Livni has indicated the same thin. In reality all current leaders in the Israeli government are fascists. They have different roles and some try to conceal their criminality. Criminals who try to come across as moderates are Ehud Barak, Shimon Peres and Tzipi Livni.

"Palestinian" citizenship is a failed experiment!

Lebanon was far smarter than Israel on this issue!
Egypt too! You can't force them to accept Gaza back!
Even "progresive" Jordan is having second thoughts!

Most "Palestinians" still do NOT serve in the army!
Many still "stone" passing cars when they don't like national decisions!

A threat to revoke disloyal Arab citizenships,
might be exactly what is needed to get them
back to direct talks & compromise for peace!!

The two-state solution is the death knell of any viable Palestinian state. The state of Israel has been pursuing "some transfer of territory" in ever so many creative ways for 62 years, in the spirit of the Allon Plan (1967)squeezing the largest number of Palestinian citizens of Israel onto the smallest possible areas of land. If you like having the wool pulled over your eyes, fine - the journalist prefers not.

Robert; why do a transfer when settlers are living illegally on stolen Palestinian land. Israel have been planning this since the 70s so that they would have more to bargain with. Palestinians in Israel, in comparison, live their legaly and have been doing so for centuries. I?m sure they?d rather stay in Israel so that they won?t be terrorised by the IDF in a future Palestinian state.

This corrupt money laundering, racist, ex bouncers words are never lost in translation because he has not the brain to think before he spews hate. Accusing a collective population of disloyalty shows the extent of his Anti Arab sentiments. I wonder how he would measure loyalty differences between Jewish Israelis and Arab Israelis with a measuring cup or tape measure? because without any hard factual evidence his stupendous comments are just pure racism against many of Israel’s (Continued)

Part 2:

1.3 million Palestinian citizens. Proposing a raft of loyalty laws specifically targeted at the Palestinian minority confirm his true agenda.
Funny how European Ashkanazi immigants like Lieberman with no affiliation to the land try and strip Palestinians of their Israeli citizenship but one thing he can never strip them of is their legitimate identity of being the native people of the land. A simple genetics test Zionists like him that have worked so hard to stifle will prove it !

Mr. Lieberman shouldn't worry about taking any-one's citizenship. When the Palestinians get their own state they will leave voluntarily. One thing at a time Mr. Lieberman.

There will not be a 2-state solution. It will end up as a 1-state, and after 50 years, there will be equal rights in that 1-state, because it can't be otherwise in the long run.

29/06/2010 14:25
Why do you Posters object to tranferring nationalities as Mr. Lieberman made clear early on and can be found in the principles of the political party he leads, Yisrael Beiteinu? He advocates the transfer of the Arab population in the "triangle" area live under the new state of Palestine (two-state solution). The people stay where they are. Of course, some would object because, while they hate Israel, they love all the benefits they receive, like teenagers under the rule of their parents.

Palestinian's had their own state, as provided by the UN Partition Plan,
problem was they didn't want it, preferring to attack Israel instead

You really should brush up on the "TIMELINES ISRAEL ARAB CONFLICT"

Anyway, not to worry, Palestinian's have a state, it's called 'JORDAN",
which the British stole and gave to Emir Abdullah as payoff for his services in World War One

The Askhenazi Jews have their own states in Europe and the US. They have no connection to Palestine. Since when were Middle Eastern citizens white as Europeans? Fact is that the land was stolen from the Palestinians by an extremist enclave of Zionist terrorists. Its a grave crime against humanity.

@ 15/Ben Jabo/Israel/USA What you have in Israel a corrupt Israeli government that can't make heads or tail about their own political system. It is the worse democracy in the world, and with that I don't expect without even looking at facts that Israel is not about to give anything back to the Palestinians. Netanyahu come to the US talk about a peace process, when after you said Jordan is the Palestinian state, he should be talking to the Jordanians instead not the US.

It is just what happens everywhere (N & S Americas, Australia, etc.): largest number of "natives" pushed into the smallest possible areas.

Sherezade,
Jews are native to the Land also & more "native" than Arabs biblically.
Now about 70% of Israeli Jews are born in Israel, & as time passes ...

"Occupied Palestinian Territory"

Mind telling me where the Capital City of ancient Palestine was?
Name of the King or Ruler?
Type of Government?
Where can I find some coins (not from the Mandate)
And while you're at, where can I view a map of Palestine,prior to the Roman Conquest?

29/06/2010 16:40
@ Jerrold Cohen/USA I can't see a two state solution either. I don't expect the Israelis going to give back to the Palestinians all that real estate that Israel develop between Gaza and the West bank. I can see that Israel worked hard to seperate both cities and divided a future Palestinian if that is about to happened in 2012 or not. As far as I read an Israeli official said that no chance for a Pelestinian state by 2012.

Our connection to the Land of Israel (Jacob) is the Torah (Bible)

We are connected to Europe, far less than “Palestinians” are connected to Arabia or Iraq.

Funny that you equate God with being a real estate agent for European Jews with no connection to the Palestinian soil. So according to your logic, Palestinians who lived in multiple generations successively should be expelled for Europeans that have had no forefathers living there. So it is justified that Avigdor Lieberman can come and live there for a few years and throw out Palestinians who had generations living there...Nice.

The BOOK has existed for 1000s of years.

Several copies are 1000 years old.
And, the books that the "Europeans" patterned their lives around,
for centuries, are identical to the ancient copies, that they never knew!

The BOOK says the Land was given to his Jacob & his "seed" forever!

#25: Terry, you unfortunately show ignorance of the history of the land. It belonged to Israel. The Romans kicked most of them out, scattering them around Europe and re-named it Palestine. A remnant of Jews remained their to this day maintaining it as Jewish land. Arabs moved in and settled some parts, but never under the name of Palestine. God is now bringing his people back into the land, and they will never again be removed from Israel. You may not like it but thems the facts !

Now, I hit a weak nerve obviously. You know that you are wrong and desperately cling to your inculcated patterns of propaganda. You cannot claim land since 2500 years ago. How would the world look like if everybody did that? The Palestinians lived there for successive generations. 3 or 4 generations. That you think somebody as Avigdor Lieberman, a new immigrant, has the right to expell people who have connections to the land at least since the Ottoman Empire is extremely sad. Shame on you.

These are nothing but a silly collection of made up stories reprised from earlier cultures theology and myths. So fools like yourself believe these stories to be originals, only they were pieced together from stolen ideas of extinct cultures. Hence the problem we face today, Jews think they are the chosen ones and Arabs think everyone else is an infidel. Great comedy.

You are Equating Zionism with Racism, just like Waldheim, (a Nazi) that used his UN position to do the same (UN Res. 3379)!!

The Zionist RE-CREATED a state, and it was based on religion!

Jews admit blowing up the King David Hotel AND also notifying the British soldiers they fought, so they could get out.
This makes it more of a humane battle, rather than terror!

British soldiers were hanged after Israeli "terrorists" were hanged

Arab states also did ethnic cleansing of Jews in 1948 & 1967,
AND of equal or larger numbers too!

Sharon was guilty of being neutral (like Sweden in WW2), regarding
Shabra and Shatila, and allowed Arabs to kill Arabs!!

The problem is about now . Once Arabs and Jews lived respectfully together. It was the zionists who created the poison which soaks the world in blood today. Few people believe that Israelis should have to vacate Palestine. But the Palestinians must have compensation, the illegal settlements land back and a safe place to live without checkpoints humiliation and abuse. It can be done , Ireland is an example.Hopefully Jewish people from other countries will stay where they are .

Jen,
The only Zionist poison is our survival.
The Nazi tried to exterminate us in WW2, but we survived!
The Arabs tried to kill us in 1948, 1967, etc. but we survived!

If our survival "soaks the world in blood today", it is only
because Arabs target the world, when they can't hurt us!!

We were NOT the murders over Lockerbie Scotland
or in the Twin Tower NYC attacks!!

Don't be like Churchill’s famous "appeaser".
If you feed the crocodile, it will still eat you!!
