..."The sweeping popularity of Avigdor Lieberman's anti-Arab ideology and rhetoric in the campaign leading up to the national elections in February won his Yisrael Beiteinu Party 15 seats in the Knesset. It is now the second-largest party in the governing coalition, and Lieberman has assumed the coveted post of foreign minister. Lieberman?s ultra-right-wing party campaigned on a racist platform that fanned the flames of fear and hostility toward Israel's Arab minority. Propelled by the slogan "No loyalty, no citizenship," Lieberman's key policy proposal was to make Israeli citizenship contingent on pledging a loyalty oath to Israel as a Jewish state and was directed primarily against Israel's Arab citizens. The other campaign slogan, "Only Lieberman understands Arabic," was steeped in demagoguery and unbridled racism." http://jta.org/news/article/2009/06/22/1006045 /op-ed-jews-should-condemn-far-right-in-israel And don't forget banning the Nakba. Israel has turned quite racist.
