Israeli MP proposes 'ethnic cleansing'

By Khalid Amayreh in the West Bank

Sunday 04 January 2004, 21:49 Makka Time, 18:49 GMT


Unwanted: Israeli lawmaker says Palestinians should be expelled

A member of the Israeli parliament has proposed “massive ethnic cleansing” of non-Jews in Palestine-Israel as a “final solution” of the Palestinian-Israeli conflict.

Uzi Cohen, a member of Ariel Sharon’s right-wing Likud party and a deputy in the Knesset, told Israeli public radio on Sunday there was widespread support in Israel for “the idea of ethnic cleansing”.

“Many people support the idea but few are willing to speak about it publicly.”

Cohen, an influential figure in Likud, proposed that Israel, the United States, the European Union as well as oil-rich Arab states make concerted efforts to create a Palestinian state in northern Jordan.

He suggested the Hashimi royal family in Amman “might view favorably this idea”.

Cohen, who is also deputy mayor of the town of Raanana, said Palestinians should be given 20 years to “leave voluntarily”.

“In case they don’t leave, plans would have to be drawn up to expel them by force


If not, there are these unused factories in Western Poland which could be used to create that final solution.

When will people grow up?

The Arab world would blow up the oil and watch the West collapse before there is a Palestinian-frei West Bank. Israel's population is too small to force a demographic change. There is only one solution and it's not Treblinka II. It's called living together. They have to trust each other, kill the extremists and live together.

If some idiot Likudnik is so ahistorical and so delusional about Israel's power he wants to suggest some solution out of the mind of Reinhard Hydrich, fine. But it isn't going to happen and serious adults would know that.
