In a harsh comment Sunday, Foreign Minister Avigdor Liberman advocated “cutting of the heads” of Arabs who were not loyal to Israel. “Those who are with us deserve everything, but those who are against us deserve to have their heads chopped off with an axe,” Liberman said at an election event Sunday.

Liberman once again advocated his plan to spin off Arab areas of Israel and integrate them into a Palestinian state, in exchange for areas of Judea and Samaria that would be annexed to Israel. “There is no reason for Umm el-Fahm to be a part of Israel,” Liberman said, referring to the large Arab city in Wadi Ara.

“Those who raise the black flag on 'Nakba Day' in mourning over the establishment of Israel do not belong here, as far as I am concerned, and I am quite willing to donate them to PA chief Mahmoud Abbas. It would be my pleasure,” said Liberman.

During a question and answer session, Liberman answered a question from the audience asked by an Israeli Arab what he proposed to do with her under his plan. “I have no problem with your being a citizen,” he told her. “I expect all Arabs, Christians and Jews to be loyal to the state, regardless of religious affiliation, and to serve in the IDF. Our party is the only one that has placed a Druze Israeli in a realistic spot on the list, to the extent that he will be likely to serve in the Knesset. We accept and encourage those who identify with us.”
