Why Avigdor Lieberman is the worst thing that could happen to the Middle East (The Independent)

De keuze van de fascistische en racistische Avigdor Lieberman als Israelische minister van buienlandse zaken, roept verschillende reacties op.

Robert Fisk: I can identify Lieberman’s language with the language of Messrs Mladic and Karadzic and Milosevic

Only days after they were groaning with fury at the Israeli lobby’s success in hounding the outspoken Charles Freeman away from his proposed intelligence job for President Obama, the Arabs now have to contend with an Israeli Foreign Minister whose – let us speak frankly – racist comments about Palestinian loyalty tests have brought into the new Netanyahu cabinet one of the most unpleasant politicians in the Middle East.

The Iraqis produced the hateful Saddam, the Iranians created the crackpot Ahmadinejad – for reasons of sanity, I leave out the weird ruler of Libya – and now the Israelis have exalted a man, Avigdor Lieberman, who out-Sharons even Ariel Sharon.

A few Palestinians expressed their cruel delight that at last the West will see the "true face" of Israel. I’ve heard that one before – when Sharon became prime minister – and the usual nonsense will be trotted out that only a "hard-line extremist" can make the compromises necessary for a deal with the Palestinians…

  1. De pogingen van Netanyahu om dit in de steigers staande kabinet te vormen en de keuze daarbij voor Lieberman spreken boekdelen. Hij heeft maling aan de buitenwereld, en de gemiddelde Israëlische politicus veegt z’n voeten af aan alles & iedereen wat/die niet "Israël-freundlich" is!
