Lieberman: Tired of Being a 'Sucker'


At a meeting of his Yisrael Beiteinu faction, Foreign Minister Avigdor Lieberman said that Israel should break off relations altogether with the Palestinian Authority. In addition, he said, Israel had to destroy the Hamas regime in Gaza. “We must stop being suckers,” Lieberman said. “I am not prepared for this country to continue on the road to being the ultimate sucker. I am not prepared to have terror organizations dictate to us how to live our lives.”

Regarding Abbas, Lieberman said that “we know he wrote a thesis denying the Holocaust years ago, but maybe he has changed in mind – in the same way that his celebration and welcoming of the terrorists released in exchange for Gilad Shalit and his awarding of $5,000 to each one is a sign of his continued commitment to peace.”
