Wikileaks: Lieberman wanted Egypt to give land to 'Palestinian state'

It was suggested by Foreign Minister Avigdor Lieberman, which means it will automatically be demonized by the Leftist media, but I can recall other Israeli politicians making the same suggestion. According to Wikileaks, in a 2006 meeting with US Ambassador to Israel Richard Jones, current Foreign Minister Avigdor Lieberman suggested that Egypt give some vacant land to Gaza in order to solve the 'overcrowding problem' in the Gaza Strip.
According to protocols from a 2006 meeting between Lieberman and then-United States Ambassador Richard Jones, the foreign minister-to be suggested to demarcate the border with the Palestinians in a way that would include Egypt.

The leaked document stated that Lieberman claimed Egypt should be part of the solution to the regional conflict, by handing some of its territory to Gaza, which he described as "overcrowded."

In a document summarizing the meeting, the American ambassador penned his impression of the Israeli politician, describing him as a staunch supporter of the settlement project and a stern nationalist.

The ambassador noted that Lieberman had said to him that "separating between Israeli Jews and Israeli Arabs is vital in order to maintain Israel's security and preserve its Jewish identity."

In order to implement the plan, the Yisrael Beiteinu chairman proposed that "Israel redraws its borders with the West Bank through negotiations, in order to place populated Arab-Israeli centers that are close to the Green Line within the Palestinian territory."

At the same time, Lieberman demanded that settlement blocs in proximity with the Green Lone remain under Israel's sovereignty.
There are some things about which Lieberman is right. There are others about which he is wrong.
