      Liberman: 3 Million Arabs Could Enter Yehudah, Shomron

      Foreign Minister Avigdor Liberman told Secretary of State John Kerry of the United States, Friday morning, that an agreement between Israel and the Palestinian Authority (PA) must be based on solid foundations of security for Israel and financial stability for the PA. Liberman said even if all the problems and disagreements are solved which currently exist between the two sides, there are problems concerning the day after and thought must be given to them already.

      It is likely that following an agreement, countries will want to send the PA Arabs who left with the establishment of the modern Jewish state, augmenting the local population of about 800,000 with about three million more. This will make for a difficult humanitarian situation, resulting in renewed frustration, violence and security deterioration. Liberman said the continuation of dialogue between the two sides was very important.
