Liberman to Arab Demonstrators: Go to Ramallah and Stay There


Foreign Minister Avigdor Liberman had harsh words for the 10,000 Israeli Arabs who rallied in northern Israel on Tuesday as they marked “Nakba Day”, or what they view as the “catastrophe” of Israel’s establishment.

The demonstrators waved PLO flags and read out the names of 530 Palestinian villages that were emptied 66 years ago, before observing a minute's silence in their memory. The ceremony mocked the Memorial Day moment of silence and reading of names, which is used in Israel to commemorate terror victims and IDF soldiers.
