Liberman Attacks Netanyahu, Ya’alon: Terrorism Their Fault

Yisrael Beytenu Chairman Avigdor Liberman criticized the government's conduct and the radicalization of Israeli Arabs in Israel Monday afternoon, in his opening remarks at the Yisrael Beytenu faction meeting.

"When the Prime Minister accepts in his office the United Arab List (i.e. the Joint List – ed.) with great pomp and circumstance, and gives them a check for 900 million, it is inevitable," Liberman said.

Liberman noted that despite several reports and rumors, the government has not yet reached a decision to blacklist the Islamic Movement in Israel, either.

"[Sheikh] Raed Salah travels around the country and continues to incite – and this is the result," he fired. "The Minister of Defense has the authority and resources to carry out all of these orders." 

Liberman called on the government to halt the process of family reunification [for terrorists] as well. 

"We saw a terrorist Umm al-Fahm, and also yesterday's case, this is another result of this process of family reunification," Liberman said, referring to the Bedouin terrorist who carried out an attack on commuters in Be'er Sheva on Sunday. "Those who want family reunification – reunite them in Gaza […] I'm sure they will enjoy there all the rights, freedom of religion, freedom of worship, and so on [that they have in Israel – ed.]." 

Liberman also criticized Netanyahu's decision to remove from the agenda of the Ministerial Committee for Legislation the law revoking government financing from parties that support the boycott of Israel. 

"Those political parties which, both inside and outside Israel, provide ammunition to the enemies of Israel and support the boycott of Judea and Samaria and a general boycott against Israel – why should they be paid for from government party funding?" he asked.
