Liberman apologizes for using the word autism as an insult

MK Avigdor Liberman apologized on Thursday evening for saying in a radio interview earlier in the day  that "anyone who thinks going back to the ’67 borders would solve the dispute has autism."

"Of course I didn’t mean in any way to offend autistic people, but wanted to illustrate the unwillingness of some people to accept certain realities about the Israeli-Palestinian conflict, and I apologize if anyone was hurt," Liberman stated in his apology.

His original statement was reported as part of his discussion surrounding Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu’s plans to sit down and talk with MK Ayman Odeh, head of the Joint List.
