Israeli Foreign Minister Calls For Beheading Of ‘Disloyal Arabs’

Israeli Foreign Minister Calls For Beheading Of ‘Disloyal Arabs’

Bouncer-turned-politician and currently Israel’s Foreign Minister, Avigdor Lieberman, stated that Arabs who are not loyal to the state of Israel should have “their heads chopped off with an axe.”

Known for his profoundly primitive and hateful views of the Arab-Israeli population, the minister made those crude remarks during a rally on Sunday in Herzliya, a western Israeli city.

Lieberman, who is the leader of the Yisrael Beiteinu party confidently declared that “those who are with us deserve everything, but those who are against us deserve to have their heads chopped off with an axe.”

The Palestinian Foreign Ministry responded the following day in a statement calling for the arrest of “Lieberman of ISIS” for inciting the beheading of Arab citizens who are deemed to be disloyal to the sate of Israel.

The call for beheading Arabs “who are disloyal to the state of Israel” incited radicals and extremists alike in Israel to call for the beheading of Haneen Zoabi, an outspoken Palestinian member of the city of Knesset.

Also in his speech, Lieberman said that whoever raises a black flag on ‘Nakba Day’ or the ‘Day of Catastrophe’, referring to the day  700,000+ Palestinians were forcibly evicted from their homes and Palestinian towns were occupied or destroyed, should live in Palestinian territories.

“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,” the Israeli Foreign Minister said, “It would be my pleasure.”

The foreign minister also called for Arab majority cities to longer be a part of the Israeli state saying that “there is no reason for Umm el-Fahm to be a part of Israel.”
