Removing him as a municipal rabbi would be good, but why has it taken so long, why is such a junior minister the only one speaking about the probkem, and why aren't there laws that make such incitement a criminal offence? The trouble is that a government that features Lieberman, Shas etc. so prominently is going to find it hard to portray itself as a government that treats Israeli Jews and Israeli Arabs equally. There again, apart from this, it hasn't even really tried to pretend that it does.
