Why Avigdor Lieberman wanted a loyalty oath

For those of you who think that the 'Israeli Arabs' are loyal Israeli citizens, please consider the events of Tuesday morning in Um-el-Fahm, an 'Israeli Arab' town located in the 'triangle,' which is the area that Lieberman has proposed giving to the 'Palestinians' in exchange for areas in Judea and Samaria that are heavily populated with Jews.

For months, a group of right-wing Jews - having no connection to Lieberman - has been seeking to 'march' through Um-el-Fahm carrying Israeli flags to show the town's residents that they live in Israel. The Supreme Court finally ordered the police to allow the march to take place, but not until after the elections and under conditions that the police considered safe. The march finally took place on Tuesday morning with exactly 100 (the number the police allowed) unarmed marchers (they were all checked) carrying Israeli flags. And the 'Israeli Arabs' started throwing stones at the Jewish marchers. Fifteen people were hurt (including the Deputy Police Chief) and twelve were arrested.

Let's go to the videotape.

In hindsight, Avidgor Lieberman's swap proposal gives both sides what they want. But there's no chance the Palestinians will accept it - its not self-determination they're really after.

And Israel's Arabs want to keep Jews out of the parts of the country that should rightfully belong to the Jewish people. That's loyalty? What Lieberman proposed in the way of an oath given such behavior, is hardly an indication of creeping fascism overcoming the Jews. It apparently posed no obstacle to Labor joining the Likud-led government with Lieberman as Foreign Minister.
